The perils of snooping.
Woahh. This is literally the best comic I’ve ever seen. It’s like having a true peek into your mind and I’m sorry that you’ve peeked at his phone and you’re still regretting and wondering about it. I don’t think I have any advice for you… Thanks for the life lesson though Esme.

This was super accurate and nice comic. I am myself the same, I try to play cool but sometimes I play it over and seem stressed and weird, but never admit it.
I’ve never been in the real relationship and I don’t know how I would get over that. But I’m glad there’s trust.
I may be naive myself, but sometimes I want to believe that there’s still honesty in loved ones words.
No boyfriend/girlfriend so not my problem! :) Super cool/funny comic though!
This happened to me pretty much exactly, perfectly describes my feelings, brilliant comic :)
I still think that you deserve to know who this person is or was to your boyfriend, especially now that your relationship and your trust in each other is strong enough to withstand the weight of a conversation like that. Loose ends like this create little cracks in your relationship and it’s time to tie them up.
this is an awesome comic, dude
I loooove the last slide. it really works with the rhythm of the storytelling, y’know?
I ended up ‘confronting’ them about it right after, while also copping to being a trust-violating-bag-of-shit, and we both got really hurt. It seemed like we worked through it at the time, but we never really recovered from it because it felt like my paranoia was ~grounded in something real~ from that point on. So I got the benefit of feeling like BOTH a fool and a crazy trust-violating-bag-of-shit.
Esme girl you chose a much better considered road
Keep killin it
You’re an empress

Could you accidentally let him see this comic?
this is perfect
I just went through this exact rigmarole. I am still so ashamed and remorseful for ever having snooped or feeling inclined to snoop. This comic couldn’t have been better timed… it was really nice to see how someone else handled it.
OMG who is she???? I’d ask but you sound like you have stronger morals in taking the high road. <3
