So the other day I went out to a bar and across the room from me I spot my friend Rob’s (Don’t worry I changed his name) girlfriend. Now I was caught off guard because she was having drinks with some guy I didn’t know. When he got up, I went over to say hi. Immediately she started going on this whole thing about “this isn’t what it looks like ” and “please don’t tell Rob you saw me here, I told him I was on a girl’s night out.” I said “Why’d you tell him that?”, and she tells me, “Oh just because I wanted to catch up with my friend, but Rob’s so jealous, he would have never let me go out with some other guy.” So I said “alright” and went back to my table.
Now, to be fair, it didn’t look like they were flirting or anything, just having a good time. But now I’m wondering if I should tell Rob about the whole incident. I told his girl I wouldn’t, but my first allegiance is really to Rob. So should I tell him? Or if his girl is truly creeping, maybe it’s better if he didn’t hear it from me…….
Ay yi yi yi!!! I know this situation WELL and it makes me more uncomfortable than a thong wedgie!!
I had to learn the hard way to stay out of my friends’ love lives unless they specifically ask….and even then I’m still hesitant. Sometimes we may think we’re helping a situation, but we’re really not. People claim they want to know the truth but often can’t handle it and have a habit of shooting the messenger.
Now in this particular situation it DOES appear a tad shady that she would lie to her man about her whereabouts. But when you step back for a second, her reasoning could be legit (Not saying it is…just that it could be).
Let’s be honest, wouldn’t you buck up a bit if your man/woman said they were going to have drinks with a “friend” of the opposite sex?? Damn right you would, unless that friend was gay or ugly as sin!!! But don’t most of us have at least one true friend or long time associate that happens to be the opposite sex? I know I do (strictly platonic) and I like to catch up with them every now and again.
If I were you I would keep this particular incident quiet, only because you have no solid proof. Rest assured, everything that happens in the dark comes to light. So if she is doing dirt it will eventually come out anyway…………What do YOU all think about this one???? COMMENT BELOW
