That's a good point that I consistently miss .

I, personally, don't ever text anything that I wouldn't want my BOSS to read (let along anyone else) since my cell is provided by my work - I assume that it is not secure. MrS rarely gets texts from anyone but me, but I would certainly answer his phone, check his messages, etc. if it made a noise - we don't have a land-line so a call/txt to either phone serves the same purpose as a household answering machine. Dude doesn't even HAVE a cell phone so he regularly uses MrS's or my phone. It would simply never occur to me that someone would think/expect that a txt conveyed an "expectation of privacy"...

Me: poly bi female, in an "open-but-not-looking" V-plus with -
MrS: hetero polyflexible male, live-in husband (24+ yrs)
Dude: hetero poly male, live-in boyfriend (6+ yrs) and MrS's BFF
SLeW: platonic hetero girlfriend and BFF
MrClean: hetero mono male, almost lover-friend to me, FWBs to SLeW
+ "others" = FBs, FWBs, lover-friends, platonic G/BFs, boytoys, etc.
