"Wondering if He's Cheating"

For better or worse, cell phone technology continues to drastically change the way we do things and dating is far from immune. It used to be a guy got your number, then had to make that first nervous call to ask for a date. Now you’re more likely to trade a few text messages before a meet up.

And just as you’ve suspected, mobile technology makes it easier for men to play the game and really get over. When it comes to guys managing multiple women, phones really are smart. It was an inevitable development. Years ago your average player owned a small stack of paper, bound with glue, called a black book. While it allowed men to record details on his sexual exploits, it was an extraneous accessory that anyone could be privy to with a glance.

Then came the modern smartphone. A veritable database of contacts where a player can keep all your contact info, notes, pictures, along with a list of who you know thanks to social networks. Since its main function is for calling, having a smartphone doesn’t raise any red flags.

But any guy who’s got caught out there knows that smartphones aren’t perfect. You may not qualify yourself a tech-wizard, but you know how to track down information when you suspect something’s amiss. Between the long call logs, text messages, email and photos on a phone, smartphones can be incredibly incriminating.

But there’s an app for that. Actually, there are several. Read on for 7 apps you don’t want you boyfriend to have.

    “…he sends a text message pass code to the phone and “walah”,” It’s actually ‘voila,’ which is French for ‘there [it] is.” ‘Voici’ means ‘here [it] is. It never ceases to amaze me how many people have no idea how to spell this simple word or, more often than not, use voila for everything, even when they mean, “Here it is.”

    so. let me get this straight. those apps.  ONLY guys use them. Women would never cheat either.  BS.

  • Halli620

    I bet just as many girls as guys use things like these. But, how about use normal gut instinct to decide whether your man is trustworthy, rather than searching his phone for apps like these like a paranoid jealous freak.

  • Kommentor

    Be serious?! You take it for granted and suggest it’s perfectly ok that a nosy I’m-always-right-because-I’m-a-girl-bloke sticks her fingers into someone else’s private data, whatever they may be AND DARE TO RANT ABOUT INFIDELITY?!?

    Spying after someone is even more evil and infidel and places the spy on an even even lower morale level than the guy who “cheated”. She who finds out to be cheated on deserves perfectly what she finds when betraying her S/O in such way. Yes, it’s betrayal! The result doesn’t justify the means.

    And she should face the fact that there’s a reason why he’s cheating. Maybe because she can’t be trusted either.

    I wonder what you’d say if the male guy spies out his g/f’s phone in exact the same way to find out whether she’s cheating. I bet you’ll be upset beyond belief. Get it. Fair dos.

    Crap of the month, altogether.

    LOL. The author said “walah,” instead of “voila”. Super ghetto.

  • Nada

     Why hang with someone you don’t trust and feel you have to snoop on anyway? Paranoid lamers all.

  • Harrybcross

    I agree with everything written here about modern phone technology and it’s use to be able to cheat. But for every woman a man cheats on there is a woman who is also cheating. This is not a “man as usual cheating on woman” thing. Surely women have advanced beyond this stance? Think about it. It makes women the victims all over again. Get smart, get connected, get hip and if he cheats on you and you are being true to him then DUMP him. Oh, and guys? Do the SAME!

    “he sends a text message pass code to the phone and “walah”, all of the illicit details get erased”

    That’s “voila.” Not walah.

  • M Ameransari

    this probably helped the guys more then the girls ;p

  • http://www.jordansretro2012.com/ Suzann

    totally agree! I think its going to be more difficult than I thought!

  • http://www.jordansretro2012.com/ Suzann

    Lot of great tips!!! Lots of food for thought!!! very encouraging!!!

  • gogu

    fastest way to the door is to touch my phone.
    what I do or not do in my me time is my own business.
    and mind you I couldn’t care less what she does either.

  • Kre8gate

    Are you serious? You typed  “walah” when you mean voila? You could have said, “presto” or “bingo” or any number of other words that are simpler to understand and spell. Please don’t use words you are unfamiliar with.

    Boys should have no issues over this man .

  • Dababa

    This article is for insecure women and is feeding even more paranoia to their problem.
    Just like cosmo, it’s ruining the image of guys out there. I guarantee you 60% of men don’t cheat, but it’s unfortunate that the cheaters get all the attention.

  • Spell Check Police

    Under “Fox Private Message,” the word is spelled “voila” or “voilà,” not “walah.”

    -1 Internets for you, spell-check FAIL.

  • Gobstar

    Its kinda sad that people find themselves in a relationship where they don’t trust the other person. Nobody should ever put themselves in a situation where they feel so pathetic that they have to check their husband/wife’s phone. If a person distrust their partner, what’s the point being with them?

  • Dan

    Sweet!  I was wondering how i was going to hide my affair with the babysitter from my wife.  Some of these sound PERFECT!!!

    Wow!

  • Bob

    As the expression goes, “Fool me once…”
    My reflex response is that cheating is bad.  It is.  There’s no arguing that.  But this article makes it seem like guys cheating is the norm, and to be expected.  Now, maybe I’m just out of touch, but I don’t think that is the case–at least not with me or any of the guys I know.  If this author lives in a world where cheating is normal, then I have to wonder “Why?”.  What is different about her (I assume) area that makes cheating so prevalent?  (And apparently only among men?)  Obviously the cheater is to blame, and his/her actions are inexcusable, but after a while, you have to wonder what it is about those that are being cheated on that makes/allows this to keep happening.  Just a thought…

  • Bob

    Was that even english?  I have no idea what the hell you just said.

    Slydial only works for US carriers I guess. Funny thing is that I bet 80% of the guys will actually download the apps after reading this xD

  • sternhead

    or could have the guy uninstall all the apps then have post uninstallation sex

  • number5

    Perhaps you ladies that are so paranoid don’t deserve a boyfriend.  If you don’t trust your man then maybe it’s not a healthy relationship?  Time to move on……………

  • http://twitter.com/6thousand Shelby McGregor

    Because it’s only men who cheat, right? And every single boyfriend wants to cheat?

  • Bmalo33

    Had any one looked at the stats? This is all about men. I personally know way more women that have cheated and destroyed lives than men. I would be curious to see the real stats. You make men look like pigs while women get away Scott free. Shameful.

  • jeana

    I love this web site, but the only thing that upsets me is having to click the contunue button about a thousand times to complete reading an article.  It’s takes at least 15  to 20 minutes to read an article of about 11 pages. Lots of times I never get through a complete article because it just takes too long and it’ snot so much that my computer is slow…that is not the case.  

  • Lucius Scribbens

    There is only two possible outcomes from asking a guy to go through his phone or going through it without his (immediate) knowledge:

    1. You do actually find something and you dump him.
    2. You don’t find anything and feel guilty for not trusting him and he dumps you because you’ve invaded his privacy and offended him because you questioned his integrity.

  • Waynelittlewood

    Do thes apps know if it’s a woman who installed them then? Like – “Woah you can’t have this app. Only men can cheat on their partners. You are a paragon of virtue”

    What a load of mysoginist crap? I’m sure cheating women would find these apps just as useful. Unless of course they weren’t sad enough to use them like most men.

    I believe that these types of articles just add unnecessary fuel to an already burned out fire!! This is 2011, if women haven't learned by now that you should only enter relationships were you feel SECURE enough to TRUST your partner, then we are just beating a dead horse! If you suspect he's cheating, well hmm why not ask HIM about it, and vice versa, Men if you suspect your woman is cheating talk to her about it like civilized adults. People shouldn't always think the worst about one another, especially about someone you're suppose to be in a relationship with. If so, dont get in a relationship AT ALL, if that's how you're going to think. Just a thought!

      Trust goes both ways some people would rather have a “good” or “safe” female at home and mess around with the TRASH in te street.

    "walah"?

    The phrase is voila'! Who's writing this article, twelve-year-olds?

    • http://twitter.com/eptifibatide @eptifibatide

      true, Odd the guy/gal did not know that..

      • jim98122x

        Not that odd.  It just goes to show how ignorant you can be and still get the bandwidth to spew your drivel online.  I’m so glad I wasn’t the only one to be nauseated by this display of ignorance. I guess we can see who didn’t take a foreign language in school, can’t we?

      I know. It physically made me cringe.

    • theres an app for inanity

      um, actually, its et’ voila’

  • thehuxcapacitor

    What a horribly misandrous post. This kinda tech works for women and men y'know, and this kind of article perpetuates sexism.
    Bad form MN. Bad form.

  • TheStud

    How many apps? You list one too many, just like your suspicions of extra women often include one too many when your bloke is actually monogamous!

  • JustAshley

    When I read stuff like this…….I am reminded how blessed I am to be single. SMH
    *
    Come on now, people wonder why the world's going to h*ll in a handbasket but yet you have people creating and using stuff like this. How diabolical can you get? I mean, why not just STAY SINGLE instead of trying to play with someones heart??

    • Chocolate Bunny

      You betta preach girl! Lol!

  • msknowitall

    All this just to hide infidelity? What a waste of time. If u need to invest this much time to hide things u have mental problems. Ladies and gentleman, if at anytime u feel the need to check his/ her phone because u question his/her honesty , its time to end the relationship whether or not he/she has one of these apps.
