Though we all know why you want the numbers and text messages hid, but thats your personal problem.
A simple suggestion is stop using your contract phone and go with a prepay. There is no paper trail on a prepay phone and you can pick one up in most walmarts for about 20 dollars to use to get ahold of the person your significant other doesn't need to know about.

It is completely and utterly possible to stop it on the paper billing, just opt out of detailed billing. Realize though, this does not stop it from being able to be seen online. If you are really wanting to be secretive then you need to sign up for a Mywireless account first and put on not only a password, but a second one as added security. I forgot how to do this, but when I try to log in it asks for my password and then says for added security I need to put in my security number.
For the extra security to prevent someone from accessing the account you add a PASSCODE. It also allows you to the IVR self service options.
What is the Security of My Personal Information?
What is an account passcode?
How can I secure my account information?
Protecting customer information is of the utmost priority to AT&T. AT&T does not knowingly provide customer information to companies offering cell phone records for sale, and we have a variety of measures in place to protect unauthorized access to all customer information.
To further protect your information, we recommend that you place a 4-8 digit passcode on your account. Please Contact Us by Phone to add a passcode on your account. Choose a unique passcode, keep it in a secure place, and do not give it to anyone else unless you trust them with full access to and power over your account.
Having a numeric passcode on your account will also allow you to use our IVR self service options by calling 611 from your wireless device or 1-800-331-0500 from your home phone. When calling, if you do not have a numeric passcode on your account you will be routed to a Customer Service representative.
