I had sex with my pal’s guy
Dear Fiona, Last week I did something terrible and hate myself for it.
After too much alcohol I had sex with my friend’s boyfriend.
He won’t tell her as he regrets it too but everytime I see or speak to her, I’m crushed with guilt and disgust.
Should I tell her?
Dear Disgusted Friend,
Alcohol gets blamed for a lot of bad behaviour but problems occur because it lowers inhibitions, often encouraging people to fulfill secret or repressed desires.
However, if this act wasn’t premeditated and you’re both determined not to repeat it, then perhaps hold back on telling your friend, at least until the emotions have subsided and you can weigh it up rationally.
There’s no excuse but remember you’re not infallible and you make mistakes.
