If you clicked on your significant others "Browsing History" tab, what entries, if found, would make you consider dumping them?

Asked by Imadethisupwithnoforethought (14635points) December 30th, 2012

I was reading an article about when to dump a significant others and it noted you should read their internet history.

Ignoring the fact that this is really sneaky, I began to ponder, what in there would be so horrifying as to make you dump the person immediately?

“undetectable ways to kill your spouse” entered in Google.

I’d dump him if I discovered previously unknown bank accounts in the Cayman Islands.

I was messing around with google and I typed in “how to k” and “how to kill my girlfriend and get away with it” popped up.

Since I have no SO, I would think that it really wouldn’t matter to me what showed up in her history. I’d still try to keep her.

Not much. I agree with @janbb that child porn would certainly result in the end of our relationship. A dating agency or online matchmaking site would give me pause for concern and we would certainly have a conversation about what the hell was going on.

I did click on his history (to go to a site we both use and I knew would be there) and found ‘big tit’ porn. It made me laugh.

I’m not sure, to be honest.

This actually happened to me about 4 years ago. I was dating a guy and well…..when we finally got intimate, he had an eensey weensey weenie. It was very awkward.
A week or so later and when I wasn’t sure, for other reasons, and yes, the eensy weensey weenie thing to, whether I wanted to pursue anything more with him, well…..he claimed to be upgrading something on my computer and saw that I had been researching micropenis…

It was really quite sad, but I am pretty sure he was snooping.
I despise SNEAKY, and sneaky with a small weenie equaled a quick exit.

@Coloma Poor guy. :( I agree that sneaky isn’t usually good, but I’d feel so awful about him finding that. It’s not as if he could do much to help it.

Coloma's avatar

@livelaughlove21 Oh for sure…it was already awkward but, at the same time, my browsing history is none of anyone elses biz. Not that I had anything to hide, other than curiosity.
He had been married for 17 years and had 2 kids, but seriously, it was bizarre.
I am not talking just small..I am talking almost not there. Terrible.

@Coloma I always think when you feel you have to snoop and act on it, you can’t complain too loudly about what you find!

If she never dumped me for the things I have done (which probably hurt her far worse than anything in a mere browsing history), then how could I dump her for anything in her browsing history? Sorry, this question seems very unrealistic to me. People who investigate each other’s browsing history deserve to find whatever they find and they deserve the feelings they get from finding whatever they find. This should be taught in relationships 101.

well and ex was using mine and I discovered he was on OK Cupid dating site so I broke up with him and that is why he is now an ex. I did however proceed to post my profile on the site right after.

Nothing short of child porn, without a conversation first. I write fiction so I know there are innocent reasons to have googled some freaky shit.

wundayatta's avatar

Of course, if someone I knew let stuff like this be in their browser history, it must be because they deliberately wanted me to see it. I mean, everyone around here knows how to do safe browsing, including the kids.

Nope. Officer. I never did nuthin’. I don’t even know what the internet is.

pleiades's avatar

First off I think if you’re a snooper, you’re a loser. The snooper should be dumped imo :D

Coloma's avatar

@pleiades Yep, snooping is for dogs and detectives.

augustlan's avatar

I’d have to have a damn good reason to suspect something was up before I ever stooped to snooping. Aside from a consistent history of looking at child porn (because one time might be an accidental click), I’m not sure what I could find that would make me immediately dump someone without at least talking about it first to see if there is some reasonable (and believable) explanation. For instance, I helped a friend of mine set up her account on a dating site and read another friend’s profile on another dating site, all while I was in a monogamous relationship. I’d sure hate to be dumped for something that was perfectly innocent.

And that my friends is why browser history is turned off on all my computers. I’m going to google micropenis right now see what pops up. Heck I might even look up gay micro penis with gerbils. Ctrl + Shift + P….

ucme's avatar

I’d be more than a little alarmed if I saw these words anywhere near each other…man got your penis a has small?

downtide's avatar

Child porn is the only thing I can think of that would cause me to dump him immediately. But I wouldn’t look at his browsing history anyway.
