    My bf's email box had an email and you only see the intro but it said:

    'name: xxxx'
    'age: xxxx'

    'hi *bfs name here*'

    am i being paranoid or is it not only either junk mail (which it wasn't since it wasn't in the junkbox) or emails from dating websites or something like that which come in this format?

    thanks

    Sounds like junk to me. I always get these random and not very appropriate emails all the time. Usually something of deeply sexual nature.

    Probably junk mail. Maybe to keep an eye on him. Don't know why he would be on a dating site while having a girlfriend.... Normally cheating only really happens at bars etc.

    I constantly get emails that get through the junk mail filters. And often it's addressed to the name that is connected to the account. My one is blank so it's funny because often it ends up being random stuff or just things like "name" and most of them are sexual in nature.

    Why are you checking his email anyway?

    You should check the sender, you'll be able to tell if it's spam or not.
