In case you missed last week’s announcement, for the next few weeks actor Barry Floyd (aka Tee Tee from BET’s The Game) will be dishing out relationship advice on Naked With Socks On in a new series called, Tuesdays With Tee Tee. CLICK HERE to peep his first entry on interracial dating and now on to this week’sDear Tee Tee,
I just found out that my best friend’s girl is cheating on him with someone I know. The other guy is someone I know from work and he doesn’t even know my best friend. We were just talking during lunch one day and he was bragging about this girl he bagged at the club a few weeks back. When he showed me a picture of her on his phone that’s when I realized it was my boy’s girl. I was ready to tell my man but my co-worker was like I should just mind my business and stay out of it. I feel stuck because I feel like I owe it to my best friend to tell him but I don’t want to snitch on my homeboy from work. What should I do?Dear Stuck in the Middle,
If that’s your best friend you got to say something. You don’t necessarily have to rat out the other dude but you got to at least give your best friend a heads up about the chick.
Like, “I can’t tell you who she’s cheating with but I know she’s doing some dirt and I think you should know.”
If it was reversed and I was the dude that got cheated on I would want to know and if I found out later that other people knew about it and they didn’t tell me I would be more upset with that then them not telling me at all. So I say tell him just keep your co-worker’s name out of it. Again, just because I’m telling you the girl is doing dirt I don’t have to tell you who she’s doing it with.
What would you do if you found out your best friend’s partner was cheating on them? Would you tell right away or mind your business? Would it make a difference if you also knew the person they were cheating with? Would you want your friends to tell you if they knew your partner was cheating? Would you be more hurt if you knew people close to you knew your partner was cheating and didn’t tell you? Does the co-worker have a right to feel betrayed if the letter writer tells his friend? Would you have a different view on this scenario if it was just an acquaintance and not a best friend that was being cheated on? What did you think of Barry’s advice this week?
