2 My friend and I said some bad things about another girl on Twitter and she found out. We didn’t mean for her to see it – were we wrong?
3 My gf constantly wants to go through my phone and when I tell her no she thinks I'm hiding something. She has the passwords to both my Facebook and Myspace and goes through them everyday. If I change them she says I'm hiding something and makes me give her the new ones or threatens to leave and says she doesn't trust me if she doesn't have them. What should I do?
