    My X Slept With My Friend!

    Dear Lennie, I recently broke up with a guy I'd been seeing for several months. He was crushed. He's constantly texting, wanting to see me, even though I told him not to contact me. The next thing I know, he sleeps with my best friend. Only, she didn't know it was him, because she only knew him by his nickname. You know like Jonathan vs Jack, Robert vs Bob, or Bill vs William, and she didn't know his last name. She thought the guy was acting kind of weird, and after it was too late, she pieced it together and called me immediately. The next time he texted, professing his live to me, I asked him if he'd slept with anyone since we broke up and he said 'no'. LIAR. I am not upset with my friend. I believe she didn't know, but I want to strangle him. 

    Dear Strangler,

    Wow. Well, that does deserve strangling, though I still say step away from the rope! Nothing good ever comes from any kind of vengeful act. This guy is childish, vindictive, and a bit of a sociopath. Clearly, he wanted to hurt you and get your attention. Not sure why he is now denying it. Perhaps, he regrets what he did, hopes you don't know and still wants a chance to reunite with you. This sends chills down my spine. It reminds me of an old movie called Sleeping With The Enemy. I say mark his number "do not reply"  and never respond to his texts, calls, or e-mails.  Consider yourself lucky to have learned this about him now, and not years later after you're married to him and have children with him. Take the high road, walk away, and never look back.

    If she did not know it was him, how can we assume he knew who she was? This scenario does not sit right with me.

    Also people need to quit reading into other people's actions especially primal ones. Why can't they've had a drunken carnal evening, woke up realized what had happened and that was that?

    What boyfriend of several months doesn't know his girlfriend's bestie or bestie not knowing her best friends boyfriend? Why must there be a hidden agenda?

    Strangler - Don't be so vain

    It's lame it happened, but quit reading so much into it.

    Get over it?!? The asshole slept with her best friend and you say get over it? Sure, cause you're a guy and sex is just sex. If I were her I'd take a Louisville Slugger to both headlights, slash a hole in all four tires.. maybe he'll think next time... before he's a F-ing asshole.

    Jennifer - Why is it the guy's fault? All I'm saying is the scenario sounds fishy, You on the other hand would rather act emotionally without looking logically at the situation. Ha Imagine that! That be a "woman" . Puhhhhlease .
