Yesterday we read an email from a Rock-A-Holic named Gordon who needed some help deciding if he should tell his buddy a secret about his new girlfriend.
Gordon went out with a woman briefly who he liked but they soon found out they were better off as friends. He was glad though because he introduced his buddy to her and they hit it off.
The problem is, he never told his friend that he slept with her and is wondering if he should tell him. He’s worried that his buddy will think he’s dating Gordon’s sloppy seconds and if that does come out, should he be the one to tell him or her?
Do we really have to tell everyone everything in life now? Is that what we’ve come to, not having any more privacy? It seems like we can’t just take something to the grave anymore, it has to be out in the open for everyone to see.
If the friend does find out he can just explain that it didn’t mean anything and that out of respect to him he kept it quiet. Just make yourself look like the dummy and tell him that she is now with the better guy and if he’s a good guy, he will understand. Who needs the drama? Life would be so much easier if people would just keep things to themselves once-in-awhile.
