In general, the “but all guys do it!” excuse should really be limited to waking up at full-alert or tearing up during The Shawshank Redemption.
It should not, under any circumstances, be an appropriate answer to the question “Why do you have Grindr on your phone?”
Especially if the person asking that question happens to be the girlfriend of the guy being asked.
But such is the case for one justifiably confused young woman who recently confronted her “straight” boyfriend about why the little orange icon was tucked away in his phone.
“So the other day I found out that my boyfriend of like four years had downloaded Grindr (shamefully I was looking through his phone). He didn’t have a profile or anything but I confronted him and he told me that he looked as a joke and that all guys look up weird stuff like this. He said it was “just to see what the app was like” but that he is not gay or curious in any way.
Is the whole ‘all guys look at it’ thing true, should I trust him, or should I try to talk to him more about it? Kind of freaking out and really confused.”
