The other issue is that clearly some of these apps are poorly written.
Your dating app may contain vulnerabilities that could lead to you unwittingly leaking your personal information, or provide clues that could lead someone to determining your true identity or location.
You'll have to use your gut here and determine when, but at a certain point, if he still can't trust you, you both need to take a long look at the relationship.8. As tough as it might be to remember in the moment, the baggage people bring into relationships go beyond each of you as individuals. But at the same time, remember that just because he's got some deep-seated hang-ups, that's also not a free pass.
This allows an attacker, for example, to see which accounts the victim is currently viewing. The first rule has to always be to think carefully about what information you share online (including in dating apps).
Even if the information you have provided to the app isn't in itself enough to identify you, remember that chances are that you have left plenty of other information about yourself lying across the internet (maybe on Facebook on Linked In for instance) which will help someone to track you down.
If communication is a serious issue for you, though, it's certainly worth speaking about it with him and exploring other options.5.

He's not doing it because he thinks you're horrible, but because he expects that behavior and he expects to get betrayed. If he isn't actively trying to work through it, it's going to put a strain on your relationship. This might sound great to anyone who really likes to dive into a relationship, but it's certainly a nightmare for everyone else.
With those last two points in mind, it may sometimes feel like you're the one who abandoned him in the first place.
It might take him some time to really warm up and trust you.
Boundaries have to be made, and they need to be made early on.7.
