Why Do You Pick Up Calls on Your Lover's Phone?

Hey guys: do you like picking your gurlfriend calls?

And if you are a lady: do you like picking your boyfriend calls?

(I think) most people don't like that idea. Tell us what you feel about it.

Ladies and gentle men,boys and girls (cos i see alot of immature girls and boys on this site) the issue of picking up ur boy/girl friends phone when it rings is a private matter b/w both parties,if both approve of the other picking his or her calls is a decision of both parties ,but generally mobile phones are for individualuse and ones privacy should be respected, so don't pick his or her phone when it rings,call him or her that she or he has a call.In the case of a land line,anybody living in that enviroment may pick such calls.

Privacy is something nice but ---

First, the one who asks for privacy also must respect another person’s privacy. My boyfriend, e.g., who once complained that I had intruded his privacy used to read my sms and send sms from my mobile phone as he liked (both of course without asking). So, one morning I woke up to find him fiddling with my phone.

Secondly, why would it bother anybody if his girl/boyfriend picked the call if s/he didn’t have anything s/he was hiding? In my family, we all pick each others call. There is actually no other way because most people call the land line phone. Then you pick the call, say “hello” and the other person says “hi, can I speak to x?”. So you sometimes even get to talk to people whom you know but who would not think of calling you directly.

In case of my boyfriend, he better not tell me that I shouldn’t pick his calls. After all, my calls to him have already been picked by a female friend of his. It would be strange if he let other people pick his calls but not me, abi?

Btw, that reminds me of a time when a girl/woman called my number. Let’s say my boyfriend’s name was “Oluwole” but everybody called him “Wole”. Now, this caller wanted to speak “Olu”. I suspected that she wanted to speak to my boyfriend because I knew that he had used my phone to send sms and that she might have gotten my number thus. But she hang up before I could confirm it and he later told me that NOBODY calls him “Olu”. Coincident?

Well, my feeling is that somebody who requests that much privacy as to that the girl/boyfriend may not pick his/her calls probably has some secret(s) to hide ---

I'll have to second HotAngel here.

I'm not particular about recieving her calls but i will if i wish to. Of course i've got no reason to her her calls if she's disposed to. If she's around and indisposed..i'll ask if to pick it up but if she's not around..i'll it.

Privacy stuff doesnt come in here. She's my lover. I should be able to pick calls on her behalf except she tells me not to. well, that means she'll need also permision to even touch me.

I wont hide anything from her so she's got to be open as well.

I dont see any boundaries btw us except the 1 she sets and tells me verbally. Else we've got nothin to hide and there are no silly protocol btw us. We are 1. She can even wear my boxers for all i care.

Smartsoft: Yes, I'd be upset with you. If I tell you he's a friend, he's a friend. If you don't believe me, that would make me think you're calling me a liar.

Why would you want to date someone you obviously don't trust

Why would I want to date someone who doesn't trust me

I'd only answer his phone if he gives his permission. other than that, he deserves as much privacy as i do.

True. Lack of trust can drive a person insane in a relationship. You'd constantly be questioning and doubting him/her. What's the point of the relationship if that's the case?

Well if i'm left to say,it's bad manners to pick her calls when not asked to.

Cos everyone is entitled to his or her privacy.

@I AM

Honestly the issue of trust has nothin to do with this,

cos even if she trusts u dat much to the extent of pickin her calls spontaneously, can erupts some problems.(i mean personal problems)

Ah, I see. Reading in a hast: shame on me.

I'd only pick it up if he asks me. Other than that, no. He's intitled to his/her privacy.

the original questions is - your bf/gf phone is ringing - do YOU pick it up?

Why would one not wish to pick a call from his/her girl/boyfriend? If you truly care about that person you'd enjoy the shared conversations.
