A girl shared how her best friend cheated and she can’t decide if she should tell her boyfriend or stay out of it. She also doesn’t want to lose her best friend if she does tell her boyfriend about it.
Here is the story:
My best friend told me she cheated on her boyfriend of 8 months….I have no idea what to do.
My (F22) best friend (F22), let’s call her Rosie, told me she cheated on her boyfriend (M25) of 8 months. Let’s call him Kevin.
My friend and I have been best friends since we were born and we’ve been through EVERYTHING together. I was super shocked when she told me what she had done.
She basically told me that she confessed her love for a guy (M22) and let’s call him Ron. Ron is in her school program and they hooked up a couple of times before she was in a relationship with Kevin. From what she told me, they confessed their love for each other, kissed, and slept together.
She told me that she’s only going to tell me about what happened and maybe her older sister to get advice. I asked her if she was going to tell Kevin and she said she was planning on it.
So, I reached out to her the next day and asked how she was feeling. She said that she hung out with Kevin last night and it was so great and so fun and that she loves him so much.
I then asked if she was going to tell Kevin. She said no. She said they’re so happy together, she really likes being with him, and that it only happened once so it’s not a big deal.
I am incredibly angry with her. Kevin is such a great guy and he does not deserve this at all.
I’ve also been cheated on and I would want to know right away if my SO was cheating. My friend doesn’t know how angry I am yet.
She’s one of my only friends and I don’t want to lose her, but I also think what she did is horrible. I can’t decide if I should just stay out of it, tell Kevin, or talk to Rosie about it more and how she needs to tell Kevin what she did.
Either way, I’d rather not lose my best friend over this, but it’s completely going against my morals and boundaries that Kevin is blind to all of this.
