Peek-a-boo, what to do?

If your friend or partner left his or her email open, would you look? How about a journal? Have you ever peeked at something private?

  • Nope and I would tell them to stop leaving their things out.

  •  Did that just the once. I had been given the opportunity to find out for sure if I was being cheated on. I most definitely was, and that was the end of that - though I never revealed how I'd found out. Somehow, my morals tend to get in the way.
  • Hmmm....I Suppose it wouldn't hurt to just glance really quickly at the E-Mails....but I would NEVER read someone else's Journal no matter how tempting it sounds (unless of course, they gave me Permission)! Yes....I've looked at some Letters and E-Mails before....

  • If my friend had been acting really strangley like she was hiding yes, I would look. I would care about her and want to know what was going on with her and trying to find out if anything was going on and if  could help anyway. Yeah I have peeked once or twice because she was being really weird and it turned out her parents were going to get a divorce and it actually helped me to help her in a really long run. Now we are so close and there is nothing kept secret
  • Нет. Как и собственную корреспонденцию считаю неприкосновенной. Это частное право.

  • On any type of document electronic or otherwise, where there is an expectation of privacy, I would not read it. I would close it out or put it in a safe place for them to get back to at their earliest convenience.


    I have enough drama of my own to contend with I don’t need to be sucked into anyone else’s drama inadvertently by reading or delving into their private thoughts. Generally, my friends find me very approachable and if there is something they would like to share with me, I am the listening ear, and safe-haven for them to do so.


  • I would be very tempted to look at something my boyfriend wrote, but i would be more scared about the information i would read and whether it would affect me. I've peeked at private things before and you always find out things that you dont want to know. In this case i believe that ignorance is bliss. But, if he peeked at my journal i wouldnt really care. Haha.
  • I dont think I would, but I guess I'll never know until it happens to me. I'd like to think that I wouldnt give into the temptation of raiding their private stuff.
  • Depends... do I have reason to be peeking and being nosy? If I suspected something was up and had reason to then perhaps I would check n read the emails, IMs, etc. But I wouldn't just look for kicks, something to do, cuz curious, etc.

    What about you all... would you read an IM, email, etc if your man/lady left their email, IM window, etc open? Why or why not? Would you only take a peek if you had good reasons to?
