Pretty sure there is a way my friends do it all the time, You can check the sites they have been on however he might be deleating the history... Anyone smart would... I hope hes not being dumb over the internet Trust is important.

Re: How do you check computer history?

Im kind of confused. You're mad because he had girls on his myspace friends list? Or did he actually do something wrong, as in with his conversations on myspace?

Oh you're wanting to know how to check the history. Well if he hasn't deleted it you can just click on the history button on the browser, ours looks like a little clock. Or you can click the arrow beside the address bar. There are other ways of doing it too, but i dunno.

Re: How do you check computer history?

Well, if your bf is really a computer freak.. he will know to delete his cookies, auto complete, clear out his history... everything. There are ways to check his history but if he knows anything about computers he will have fixed it so that there is no evidence of his actions left on the computer.

Sorry hun you could always click search on the start list, and then do a search for temporary internet files - if he hasn't deleted them there will be a whole lot of files that have been downloaded from the sites showing what he's been looking at. Same as if you do a search for cookies - but these searches will work better for evidence of him watching porn - not conversations on myspace.

Good luck chicken. I personally think that you have to confront him about the trust issue and explain that you don't trust him the same way - give him a chance to prove that he CAN be trusted. I don't really feel that looking at his history and stuff is the way to go, but each to their own

I agree with pink sugar.

But adding to her thoughts, if you do find information that reveals he has been lying to you, what are you going to do then?

Trust is a fundamental requirement for all relationships - kind of like the foundation of a house.
If the foundation is unstable, by the time you add on the second floor, you know its only a matter of time before it falls apart.

Funny... I noticed my history file was open on my personal laptop today. I'm thinking my bf was checking my history file. I asked him. He denied it. He didn't see too convincing though. He has no reason not to trust me though... He knows before I was with him, I liked a guy in the army. He thinks we email each other. We don't. We used to.... but that was way before my bf, plus army dude is married now.

Anyway, trust is a big issue. You need to trust your boyfriend... if you don't it will ruin your relationship. I have many guy friends on my myspace, and my boyfriend knows it. He doesn't mind. You didn't say if they were just female friends... or questionable female friends (like on a romantic level).

I agree with Rosie if he is the littlest bit computer smart, he will know how to delete everything in his history.

On my computer the history is under a yellow star icon where you add your favorites. It give you the option of looking at your favorites, feeds, or history. It is so easy to delete it all though.

Re: How do you check computer history?

geez myspace is becoming a problem for a lot of relationships lately... I have a myspace and i talk to guys on there that i know... nothing bad it says that i am in a relationship on my page but you know my boyfriend knows that i have a myspace but i never actually sat down to show it to him..... I think it would cause a fight just because i have guys on my friends list... Honeslty i dont think i would like him having one just becuase anyone can look you up..... im not sure if its always about trust more like do i trust other people??

I can see why you would be worried but as long as his myspace mentions that hes in a relationship u should have nothing to worry about

now if he lists himself as single with no mention of you at all and theres all chicks on his friends list well then check the history lol

Yeah, myspace sucks. It's a big issue for a lot of people as far as relationships go. Especially when you live in a small town like I do, where everyone already knows each other.

Re: How do you check computer history?

No trust, no relationship. That is the only way. Just be sure that you are not over-reacting first. Another item, how would you feel if he was checking your history and messages because he had a trust issue with you? It works both ways. Either you trust him or you don't.

Hit the nail on the head. Trust is a very important part of the relationship, and without trust what do you got?
