URBAN CUPID: Can't break something that's broken
September 21, 2012 @ 15:00 pm
Friends are forbidden territory.
Friends are difficult to find and even more difficult to hold on to. In a friendship, trust once lost is gone forever. To rebuild a relationship after it has been scarred by inconsiderate indiscretions is next to impossible. Isn’t it our responsibility to uphold the beliefs and expectations that have been placed on our shoulders by our better halves?
Dear Urban Cupid,
I have been in a relationship with a girl for the past three and a half years. She is the best thing that ever happened to me. She takes care of me like I’m a child and attends to my every need. She goes out of her way to make me comfortable and happy. I am also extremely attached to her. She has this best friend; she introduced me to, a couple of months ago. Both of us became quite close and bonded over our interest for movies. In the span of the past six months, I ended up hooking up with this friend a couple of times. I don’t know why we did it but it felt like a forbidden thrill. Now, I’m feeling guilty. If I tell my girlfriend, she’ll be hurt. I don’t want to hurt her, should I tell her? I, also, don’t want this relationship to end. Please help
I, genuinely feel lost as to what I can tell you. Let me make it very clear that you have already hurt your relationship by cheating on your girlfriend and to make things worse, you did it with her best friend. I have a few choice words for cheaters but I will save my breath because you are so self involved that you won’t be able to see the gravity of the situation. You say your girlfriend is the best thing that ever happened to you but your actions betray that very sentiment. She has taken care of you for over three years and you repay her affection and kindness by being utterly ungrateful and selfish. How did you find it in your heart to break her trust by getting involved with someone you bonded with, over movies? Please muster some courage and respect and tell your girlfriend what transpired between you and her friend. Let her take on call on whether she wants to give you another chance. For the future, please remember, life takes a full circle.
