First off, I’m kinda back. Thanks so much to my amazing friends (especially Jack)who stepped in to keep the blog running while I took a few days off. I’ll do my best to keep things more or less normal around here from now on, but no promises. All I can do is my best.
So, yesterday I was catching up on some of my favorite blogs and came across this post on Naked With Socks On – Should I Tell My BFF His Girl Is Cheating? It describes a very specific situation: guy finds out that a colleague had a thing with his best friend’s girl. The advice was to tell, and most of the comments were along those lines.
I’ve never been in that specific situation. But I have been in the awkward position of knowing that a friend or friend’s significant other is cheating. Many times. I’ve had to sit at dinner with a married couple, who I’ve known for years, with the knowledge that one of them is cheating on the other.
And.. I’ll be honest, I’ve never told. And, in general, I don’t think I ever would. In any situation. I tend to believe it’s best to stay the fuck out of other people’s bedrooms.
What I won’t do is lie for people. I’ve had friends ask me to be their alibi (you know, tell X I’m with you if he calls). Again, I believe it’s best to stay the fuck out of other people’s bedrooms. I won’t tell, but I won’t lie on your behalf.
Maybe this makes me a bad person? I don’t know.
Anyway, I’m curious about you folk. No fancy poll today because I just don’t have the time for it. Plus, I’m more interested in the nuances here. How have you reacted when you’ve learned of friends’ infidelity? Have you ever told anyone that they were being cheated on? Would you?
