    He NEVER leaves his phone unattended and is on it quite often daily. I don't know what to do but I don't want this to happen to me again. I don't want all these lies and secrets and he can't see that I'm not hiding anything from him. I have nothing to hide. But he does and it...

    Completely stuck, drowning,
