By now, some of you might have heard about a new iPhone app called the TigerText App. What is it? And what does it do? This application works by allowing the sender to control when a text message is deleted from the recipient’s phone and the TigerText server. In other words, it automatically deletes the text message from both mobile devices and you can even set the timer yourself to “Delete on Read” or up to 30 days after it was sent.
Some are calling this application the “cheaters app”. While this application does have the capability to facilitate cheaters, in reality there’s nothing to be worried about. Let me explain, say your boyfriend or girlfriend has this app installed on their iPhone, then it’s pretty obvious that they’re trying to hide something from someone (probably you). Most likely when questioned, the typical response might be something like, I use it so that my_____ (mom, sister, co-workers, friend, etc.) don’t see what I text. But in reality, don’t get fooled, chances are the only person they’re really trying to hide this from is you. If this is your special someone, then who else can possibly spend more time with this person to that level? The answer is nobody but you. So let’s take off the blindfold and just assume that the only reason to have and use the TigerText App is to hide text messages from you. Now let’s clarify that if this person is single and is just dating you or is just a friend-with-benefits or as we like to call it, “this chick I’m nailing” then they have the right to do whatever they want, no questions asked and you should really stay out of it and stop fighting over this because you have absolutely no right to say anything about the matter.
Now, the real question is, what should you do next after you catch you significant other using the TigerText App? As I’ve stated before, there’s nothing to worry about because it is very simple, you should ask yourself, have I had enough of this? The question shouldn’t be if he’s doing something behind your back or not. The question should be what to do next and if you’ve had enough? As a guy I can say that we are pretty easy to please and the minute we decide to go that route and do things we shouldn’t be doing is because something is missing at home and our needs are not being met. So, your options are clear, either try to find what’s missing and what you can do to fix it or simply call it quits and move on. The last thing you want to do is nag and bitch about it every opportunity you can, because this will only cause more conflicts and if in fact he’s confused about the whole relationship, this could push him away even further. As a guy, nothing can be worse than to fight over the same issue time after time without ever coming up with a resolution to it. Never try to force anyone into a relationship because at the end it’s just harder when things are done and over. There has to be equal effort from both parties into a relationship and if you constantly find yourself being the one trying to make things work, you should take that as a sign that it’s time to move on and find someone who is willing to put the same effort you’re putting into it. Always remember to be realistic and know that sometimes, no matter how much you dislike the idea, things come to and end an there’s nothing you can do about it.
