I sort of disagree with what the people before me have written.

I'm assuming you didn't have a bag to put your cell phone in, which is why you had it out? If your boyfriend thought you were being rude by texting someone during dinner - that's an easy fix because that is rude and you should say you're sorry. But if you didn't have anywhere else to put your cell phone and immediately he assumes you are cheating on him - well that's HIS issue. Let him cool off for a day or two and then sit him down and have a serious talk. The relationship will not work if he assumes you're cheating because you don't leave your cell phone in plain sight. Remind him you love him and would never do something to hurt him, but don't let him walk all over you either.

Honestly it was your fault and his you should say sorry to him for doing that and leading him to think that. Also its his fault because he should trust you more better. A lot of guys have this trusting problem going on in thier realtionship with thier girlfriends but doing something like that makes them not want to trust you even worse for some reason.

Although he was quick to jump to conclusions, you should of left the cell phone on vibrate in your purse. It is rude to have a phone out for display while you are on a date with someone. I'm not entirely sure he thought you were hiding someone but maybe he was rather offended that you didn't just turn it off.

Anyway, If it really is a matter of thinking you are hiding something then you both need to work on it. Not him, This isn't just about his lacking but yours as well.

You can call him up and apologize for being rude. Explain to him that you were wrong to off had the phone out the way you did and you should of left it in your purse. If it rings, You do not answer it until it is an appropriate time. In all honesty if someone did that too me I would also be a little offended. However, You made a mistake it happens. Just explain to him that you are sorry and let it blow over. If he still suspects you of hiding something then either talk about it and work on it or find someone else that won't constantly suspect you.
