Do you tell your friend her man is cheating?

14 October 2016, 18:34 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - The clear answer should be yes. If my man was somewhere having some funny shenanigans and someone I know very well saw him, I would want to know.

But it depends. There are some factors you have to consider when it comes to other people’s business. Best advice: stay out of it.

Yesterday, my friend was at work but where was her man? At home (he should be at work by the way) entertaining a guest and not of the platonic variety because this was not female gossip. A man close to him actually told me. I got the 411 all the way from Rongai and I was in Westlands, how nice is it to always be in the loop?

So he asks me how close are you to so and so? I am like it is 11 years of knowing each other, the friendship is shaky at times but it is one foot in and one foot out and you know why.

He asks me if I would tell my friend her man is serial…he actually said serial, cheating on her. Not with one lady or an on and off but he is on rotation. He is the male version of what you would call the ladies of the night- his friends say that not I.

I and this lady have had a poor history as I mentioned earlier and it was because I would blurt out what I needed to say when it comes to her and the men she allows herself to deal with. You would call it protecting a friend in the beginning until your friend lets you know not so eloquently that she does not want your protection.

After I have explained that, you already know I am not going to get involved in this one.

I also think my friend knows but has chosen to ignore the whole situation because she is always talking about some drama with some ex. That is how I know she knows. So it is not up to me to tell here there are more.

My only worry was if she could catch anything but I would wait for her to prompt the conversation before I brought up anything. Being the single friend makes you that one who wants me to be like her, I don’t want any of that backlash quite frankly. I do not want to be blamed for her losing ‘a good thing going for her’.

Our relationship would also go back to that time, ‘I was trying to steal her man’ by looking for problems so I stay out of her and her relationships.

Don’t run your mouth to everyone no matter how close, not everyone wants to know. Or they do know and they are wondering why you think you come in.
