How do you handle his private phonecalls?

Does it happen for his phone to ring when he's just about to come into the house, and when it rings he goes out to speak in private instead ? How do you handle this ?

  • I like to talk outside as well. Perhaps it's just easier for him to hear his caller or focus on what they are saying when he's outside? Just casually ask him who called if you're worried...

  • i smell a rat... who knows if you search out that smell you might find a skunk. this sounds all too familiar to me, been there done that. sounds like he is hiding something. you should do some sniffing around; do not confront him yet because he WILL deny it. men usually deny till death or until there is evidence steering them in the face.

  • If it is a new thing I would be worried. Does he watch his phone like a hawk? Stay later at "work"? Anything else? If it is something he has always done it may just be him. I take almost all calls outside because the kids make it too hard to hear inside and I don't want them to hear everything I say.

  • It could be nothing, I often go outside or into another room to talk on the phone. Have you asked him who called? Does he refuse to answer if you do ask him about who was on the phone?

  • if i am bothered i ask him who called, what it was about, and then if i am still bothered, i check his phone logs. we don't have secrets from each other, and i will be pushy if i think something is off. but most of the time he does that because he needs to concentrate on what the person is saying, so he goes away from people.
