Neither DH nor myself had Snapchat but I don’t think I’d find it odd if he got Snapchat, although I would probably laugh at him for trying to fit in with the younger generation. His work are all parents to older children/teenagers so are downloading various apps to keep up with their kids or investigate if their kids can use it. Whilst DH is the youngest in his office he’s the one least taken to social media and usually the last to download an app. In my work people would probably think that Snapchat was a type of drug so I’m not going to find everyone in the office suddenly using it.

I think if it’s a common thing in his workplace (you were informed by a colleague) then I’d assume it’s the way they communicate and it’s a way that he can keep in the conversation.

Mls1988 :  I’d be surprised if I found out my husband used snapchat not because I don’t trust him, but because he’s rarely on social media!

Hmmm I don’t think I ever told my DH when I got Snapchat. He looked at my phone one day and was like “oh you have Snapchat?.” He rarely uses social media and I only downloaded it because coworkers wanted me to.  I rarely use it (only occasionally with that group of coworkers) so it didn’t even cross my mind to tell him. I wouldn’t overthink it! Just bring it up casually.

My alert button would be flashing. You must talk to him upon his return home. Snapchat isn’t usually for business conversations!

I use Snapchat A LOT -like 2 to 3 photos per day- while my DH doesn’t really use it. Is he aware I use it? Probably. I have honestly never told him much about it because I know he doesn’t really care about Snapchat. I think I once mentioned it to him, and his answer was like “Oh, sounds nice” and ever since I just shrug it off.

Have you thought about maybe becoming more active with him on snapchat?

Mls1988 :  I completely get it, I would of felt the same way as well. Not jealous, not cheating hurt – just left out hurt like why didnt you send me a quick photo via text or whatever it may be. 

Honestly though, please don’t allow your emotions to take over and blow it out of proportion. Add him on snapchat. I am sure that he will accept the request and that can be a way for you both to communicate quickly when he is busy at work or at least touch in with each other. You might end up liking it and it might make things fun. 

If he was sending a snap to her or anyone else personally then I would be a bit annoyed, but he’s sharing it on his story for all his friends on snapchat to see. Maybe he just learned how to use it?
