My boyfriend chats up other women
I’ve recently made friends with a girl from work who lives near me and my boyfriend.
She told me about a guy she met a few weeks ago who has been trying to get her to go out with him ever since.
Apparently he’s really been chasing her, and eventually she agreed to go on a date with him.
As she’s local to me, I asked her what this man’s name was, thinking I might perhaps know him and I was devastated when she said my boyfriend’s name.
I had a hard time pretending to this girl that I didn’t know him when she told me, but I can’t believe he has done this to me.
I feel so hurt and upset and I wonder if I should confront my boyfriend and ask him what he’s playing at.
He’s always telling me he loves me, but I don’t want to go out with someone who chats up other people when I am not around. JA
FIONA SAYS: YOU NEED TO CONFRONT HIM
First of all, is there a chance that two people with the same name might live in your local area?
This seems unlikely, and I think you are right to be cautious.
I really don't see that you can do anything other than confront your boyfriend with your discovery.
You should also warn your friend from work that the man she is about to go out with is supposed to be in a relationship with you.
If your boyfriend is playing around now, you'll have to be prepared for the fact that he may continue to do so. Is that what you want?
If it's not, then perhaps it’s time to call an end to this relationship and find a new boyfriend who doesn't look elsewhere when he's supposed to be with you.
