Today’s topic: Warning Sign?

Dear Steve and Crew,

I recently broke up with my fiance who I’ve been dating for 3 years and have known him for 8 years. He has been my best friend and has treated me very well. We got back together after a few months of separation. I found out during our time apart that he had posted pictures of his private area online and had attempted to chat with women online. He now claims that he has deleted any accounts online and has not attempted to chat with anyone. He is 23 years old. Although I realize that he is young, I find this to be disturbing. This is the same man who puts his towel around me while we are at the beach. Should I run? Is this a sign that he would cheat? Is this a sign that he is a pervert?
