That's just making a big assumption...


Obviously, I’m not going to track down this kid’s father to prove my theory. The only thing anyone can offer on this situation is an assumption since none of us are his mother or father.

I know this will be hard for you, but try and go 5-10 minutes without being offended. It’s do wonders for you.

I'm not offended, I'm more confused as to why this woman cheating is correct?

Who said it was “correct”?

-_- listen you. Even if OP's mum cheats, it's not like has she any right to decide how her mum lives. In no way am I saying cheating can be justified but at the same time, you cannot control what someone else does.


OH REALLY? I can prove you wrong...

Hi
I just found out that my mum installed an app called ‘Zoosk’ on her phone. I went on the app to see what it was because I was very curious of the ‘love heart’ app icon. I haven’t seen much after opening the app because I don’t go through her stuff, but now I’m very suspicious to why she would install an app like this on her phone. She’s been married for over 20 years and there are no problems between her and my dad (who lives abroad). Can someone give me advice on what I should and if I should be worried??

Thanks


There's only one logical explanation, she is secretly a late night television host who is sponsored to use it as advertisment

You have no right to be on your mother's phone. Further to this, your mum's business isn't your business and you don't have the right to invade her privacy.
Children always think they know what is going on in their parents' lives.


mate if your moms out getting men left right and center and cheating im sure he's not as much in the wrong here
Let her have fun.

I bought her an iphone 7 for mother’s day and seeing that i wasn’t busy today, she wanted me to transfer her photos, contacts etc onto the phone. When she handed me her previous phone, I saw the app, which appeared at the bottom of the app list so I assumed it was the most recent app she installed. Then I went onto her photos because I couldn’t help being curious. In the screenshots section, there was this pic of a man who looked around 5 years older than my mum. I don’t know if he ask anything to do with the app, but it all look so suspicious.


Why not just respect her privacy and mind your own business?

Then we should get rid of all courts, all laws - everyone should be free to do whatever they wish without anyone intefering, without anyone being held accoutnable.

Except he didnt find dead bodies and he had no reason to invade her privacy. That is why the police need to get warrants. Are you happy for your parents and friends to go through your stuff and open your mail, just in case they find something? Do you respect other peoples privacy? What gives you the right?
Let her hoe in peace smh

Why?

Where does your right come from poking about in someones private affairs come from?
Do you have a right to privacy?
Would you be happy for anyone to open your mail, look through your pc and accounts any time they wanted to?

Your logic is disturbing. If someone like the police want to break that privacy , then they get a warrant, which requires them to have good reason.
They are a legal authority. He is not.

Whilst it may be wrong to make the initial move and 'poke about in someones private affairs', OP's mother is clearly in the wrong and something should be done about it. You can't just ignore what someone is doing on the basis that you shouldn't know about it anyway.

He has no right. Do you demand to see what your parents and friends are doing? Why dont you believe in respecting someone elses privacy?
OPs mother is not clearly in the wrong. She has supposedly installed an app. Big deal. her business and not yours..

What's done cannot be undone.

So rather than dwell on how wrong it was to look at her phone in the first place, we should focus on what OP can do to prevent this situation from becoming any worse. Minding his own business won't do any good, it's in OPs best interest to talk about this to his parent(s) and try and resolve it.

Incidentally, a dating app whilst in a marriage - what bigger clue do you need that she's doing something wrong?

Why do you think you have the right?
Why is it any of your business?
Do you interfere in your parents marriage and that of your friends? Do they welcome it?
