Q. I was out the other night with a new date and ran into a couple of girlfriends who are untrustworthy. Both of them gushed over the guy like he was a movie star and I saw one of them slip him a card, which he hurriedly put in his pocket and never mentioned. i thought the act was very disrespectful. I’m furious. But I don’t want to come across like I’m paranoid and jealous, so I’m afraid to say anything to him. But I’m so angry I must do something. What would you do? Should I speak to him or her or both?
A. Get some new friends and talk to my date only. I would ask him about the card passing and measure his jerk status by his response. If he denies the card…I would leave him to your friends.
Q. Recently, I stopped by my girlfriend’s house unexpectedly and I overheard her telling a friend on the phone all about our relationship. Some of the things she mentioned were very personal and private to me, and I resented her for it. I broke up with her because I felt betrayed, but all my friends say that I’ve overreacting to a common occurrence. What do you say?
A. I say, I don’t blame you. It may well be a common occurrence, but not one that we wish to witness. I think that what goes on in a relationship should be kept sacred, and anyone who violates that rule should be flogged and dismissed, especially if they’re caught. Good for you!
