When dating another person, there might be disagreements on a number of things, one of these things being whether to leave your smartphone unlocked. Though the two of you might have a difference in opinion on this subject, there are good reasons as to why a person might want you to keep your phone unlocked. Here are a few.
1. The other person might want to build trust with you.
If the other person was in a relationship where he or she was cheated on, he or she might worry that you are hiding something on your phone. Therefore, by keeping your phone unlocked, it might be easier to build trust in the relationship and allow the other person to see that you are only interested in him or her.
2. The other person might just want to know about your life.
The person that you are with might be curious about you. He or she was curious enough about you to date you and learn more about your life, so why would that curiosity stop? Your other half might be curious about the conversations that you have with friends and family and wonder what you do in your spare time on your phone.
3. The other person might need to use your phone.
Not everyone has a phone. It can be hard to believe that in this day and age, but it is true. Therefore, the other person might want you to leave your phone unlocked so he or she can make a phone call when needed.
Whether you choose to leave your phone unlocked or keep it guarded is up to you. Everyone has their own reasons for doing things, and everyone is different. Nevertheless, if your other half is asking you to do this, find out why. He or she might have a good reason for asking.
