4 reasons you should check your man's phone

14 August 2015, 18:02 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - There is snooping. Then there is stalking. Both are ill-advised. Stalking is weird though because I do not understand how you can just spend a day following someone. I have a short attention span, I would lose them after the first hour. In traffic too.

If your man finds out, you will be in trouble. Just trouble. It is not like he is going to kill you or take you to prison for it. He will shout, maybe stomp around and sulk for a couple of days or weeks but he will get over it.

Rule No. 1: And the only rule for that matter. Do not get caught.

Rule No. 2: Do not get caught.

Rule No. 3: If you do not have a brain do not do it. Let me explain. You snoop around, you will find something. You will need a very clever and sneaky brain to know how to address him on the issue without tipping him off that you were in his phone, wallet, drawers …office!

At least now you know

A lot of Kenyan men like having variety on their menu. It is important to ensure that you are the only specialty he keeps ordering and he is not trying to initiate his palate into different cuisines.

I would like to think I would trust my man to know I am the best thing he ever had but it is not true. If you are beautiful the next woman or the woman before is ten times more. What you can do, another woman can either do it better or not do it at all. There always is something. You need powers not to ever be curious. Just because you read a text or see a call does not mean you know something. There is a delete function. That is why I said you need a brain. You go to settings!

You prevent getting married to someone else’s husband, boyfriend or a criminal.

You sleep better at night

The only reason single people might not sleep well is because they are not having sex. When you are in a relationship and your partner is out of town, you wonder. And wonder and wonder some more. Especially if you know they have a large appetite for some things. That is why crazy women check receipts. What type of suite it was. Was is a double, single or presidential? Call the desk and fake accents. You just want to know where they are, who they are with and what is their position in the company.

Knowledge is power

Even bad news is good news for you. Nothing worse than being made a fool of. It is even better when they know that you know and you are yet to do something about it. Nothing better than to make someone sweat for their own misdemeanors. It is now their turn to have sleepless nights because they do not know what side you will strike from.

Damage control

If there is something, you will better off having time to plan before it gets out. Most men do not think of the aftermath. They get lost in the moment. You will know what to do. Do you want to save the family? Scare the other woman? Or just get a really good divorce settlement? You will know.

The earlier you know, the better to save yourself from a bad scenario. Maybe he is married and wants to add you to a roster. Maybe he has a girlfriend, right now they have a thing so he is testing other waters. Do not be someone’s science lesson. Snooping ensures that you save yourself from all the drama.
