Q.  I’m part of a close-knit group of four friends who have been together since high school.  I found out by accident that one of the women is secretly dating the boyfriend of one of the other women.  I am so angry about this betrayal, but I don’t know what to do about it.  I don’t wish to hurt my friend, but I’m burdened that I know and she doesn’t.  What would you do?  No one knows I know.

A.  If you have no doubt that this is true, and can prove it, you should tell her.  A good friend does not hide the truth from a friend.  In a situation like this, the pain of knowledge will come either now or later.

Q.  I live in a high-rise building and I’m dating a guy who lives four floors above me.  I suspect he’s seeing someone else.  The other night I saw him through the window.  He got out of his car with another woman and walked into the building.  But when I called him, he didn’t answer the phone. I’ve got to know who the woman was. Should I confront him or leave him?  She could have been a family member.

A.  I say leave him. This “romance” is too close for comfort and suspicion of his activity will never leave you unless you marry him.
