Have you ever scrolled through your partner’s text messages or emails? Maybe listened into their voicemails? You’re not alone. More that a third of Americans who took part in a survey conducted by an online dating site said suspicious behavior warrants electronic snooping.

More women than men said it was ok to spy; in fact 37% said spying on a significant other is acceptable if ‘bad behavior’ is suspected. Only 29% of males agreed with that statement.

Interestingly, age comes into play here. Thirty-six percent of adults aged 18 to 34 approve of electronic snooping, while only 26% of adults over the age of 55 do.

The survey of over 2,000 adults conducted for OurTime.com revealed a little more about people’s dating habits. It turns out people over the age of 55 think it’s okay to date more than one person at a time. Not so the younger generation. Only 41% of adults ages 18 to 34 felt dating more than one person at a time was all right.

The survey also reveals people are slightly more selective and cautious when choosing a partner these days. Only half of women between 18 and 34 are willing to date someone with health issues, and that figure decreases with the age of the respondent.
