Starting to tick me off...Page 3 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
You could just take her purse, empty out all of its contents, and go through and study every single thing. And when she asks you to stop, just tell her it was an accident and that you weren't doing it on purpose.

"Least desirable solution: keep pepper spray beside your keyboard, and spritz her when she hovers. That DOES work, but defeats the purpose of dating, usually."...........hilarious but would ruin a date quick lol.

well.. that is unfortunate.. but what are you doing on the computer when she is there???maybe your just not into seriously .. you know what the problem is ..fix it or let her go .. ..sounds like you don't have a very trusting relationship and your not willing to discuss with her .. but rather post on here for everyone to respond when it is her you should be having this conversationwith.. personally i would punt your ass out the .. good luck

I have read all the reply's and the one about setting up a guest account is just stupid.
Every one has a right to there privacy, this is your computer and she has no reason to know your password. If she is trying to find out what it is there are one of two reasons I can think of,, first she dose not trust you and if that is the case then you have to ask your self if that is a good foundation for a relationship?
Second is she trying to get financial information that may coast you later?
I know it sounds harsh but it is a possibility..
Take a stand and ask her to back off when your typing it.

Perception is reality- maybe she is trying to get your password, maybe not. Either way you control how that makes you feel. I suggest you make a game of it, think if it as your partner doing her best to keep you on your toes.

I cant believe how many people think that everyone has the same basic life as them and if they don't they must be doing something wrong...

My ex boyfriend and I spent a ton of time at the computer looking at You-Tube and other sites. What is the difference between watching a show on a TV and watching something on your computer?

He wasnt asking for ideas on what NOT to do when she was there but rather what would be a better way than accuse her of trying to get his password?

I feel if someone wants your password; they will figure it out given enough time and effort; it is better to just not lead the type of life where you have to have things guarded...Im not saying you don't have a right to privacy; I am saying if there is something in your life you dont want another person to know then you need a better way to protect it than a password.

My father always laughed at night when my mom would say...Did you remember to lock the door? His reply..locks only keep honest people out?

Make a game out of it; when you go to log on the password...look at her and say "Turn your head"...

I think this is just a matter of there being different ideas about what the proper etiquette is. I've had friends and co-workers who are more into computers who do this way over the top looking away in the opposite direction while I'm typing a password. I appreciate the thought but it just seems rather silly and unnecessary to me. You are probably expecting that level of gesture from your girlfriend, and she is probably just not all that concerned with it. But by just saying, "do you mind, privacy" you come off as rude. You need communication skills, and fully explain your expectations (in full sentences and everything!). You have to do this before you have the right to get all worked up about it.

The same thing happened to me a few years back. She had watched me type in my password without my knowledge. A few times when I attempted to log-in, I got an error message saying that I was already logged in. I couldn't access my email. So I called yahoo and inquired. They couldn't tell me who it was, so I started a profile on a dating site. I gave her what she wanted to see I guess, because in a few days she was dropping very direct signals and questions asking if I had ever joined a dating site. Then inquired about people in my address book, especially women. I learned how jealous she was and that not trusting me, was a sign that SHE fealt guilty for not being honest and faithful. I think it's a sign or that if she could sneak around, hey I could too.

It would annoy the hell out of me too. Even people that are married have a right to some privacy.

I never asked my ex for his passwords, he never asked me for mine--when we were married. But after we split and I moved away he broke into my email account and changed my password. He confessed this to his girlfriend at the time and she made him call and apologize to me. It was...shockingly invasive. He laughed at me when I asked him how he got past the security questions. He said, "We were together for 12 years. I knew all the answers." That's what I get for being the trusting sort.

People who want to check your phone, emails, and get your passwords have serious trust issues and are usually the jealous type. That's more important than being annoyed because someone's hovering over you as you type.

The thing that caught my attention is that you mentioned that this is starting to creep you out. If you have any negative intuitions about someone you are newly dating, let me tell you from experience that they don't get better, they get worse. And typically you find that you are dating someone clingy, possessive, and you could potentially end up in a really ugly breakup with someone who has a weird obsession for you. Ugly picture. I always make it a habit to walk away when someone I am dating is logging on because I want it to be blatantly obvious that I have no interest in what they are doing online. If you suspect she is trying to figure out your password, you're right. Ask yourself this question, do you know what she would do if she found access? What if you did break up, is she going to post hateful messages on your Facebook page or pretend to be you and send hateful emails to your friends? I know this sounds excessive here but unfortunately I met a real creep on here. I felt weird about him but ignored my feelings, I dated him about a month and it's been sheer hell trying to get rid of him, to the extent that it has had to involve the police. I'm n0t trying to scare you, but it does happen, I've dated a number of men from this site with no major issues until I landed on this weirdo! Good Luck!

Two very simple point to make. A thumb scan under the desk( 50.00 at staples) why ruin what could be a very good relationship. The other point is this, I'm sure you can wait til she goes to the washroom or something and do it discreetly at that time. No need to do it right in front of guests.Point made.
