This week Ron unravels one tricky ball of yarn involving a dude, his best bud, and the ex-girlfriend who has come between them. Due to Ron's budding popularity, we've built him a new private office so he can have complete silence to contemplate his invaluable life advice.
One of my best friends recently told me that he slept with my ex-girlfriend about a year ago while we were still dating. The really shitty part is that my ex and I have been talking about possibly getting back together (I broke up with her, just for the record) and now I'm not sure I can trust her ever again. I'm really confused because on one hand I want to go over to my buddy's house and stick an ice pick in his neck, but on the other hand he did own up to it while she just pretended nothing ever happened. Ron, you've got to tell me: Who should I blame? What should I do?
I wouldn’t mind using an ice pick on my boy because if he was really your friend, he never would have slept with your girl. Man up to it or not, you don’t sleep with your man’s girl—period. Granted, he told you the truth, but he's supposed to be your man, dude. There are certain things that are totally off-limits and that is one of them. It's like if someone I know was secretly dating my best friend’s sisters—it’s not going to work. It shouldn’t have happened in the first place. He told you, so maybe you shouldn't stab him with the ice pick, but you definitely need to check his chin.
If he still wants to be your friend make him come with you to confront her and tell her that he felt so bad he had to confess. Also, make him feel your pain by forcing him to explain exactly what happened. Did he just fall and land inside of her?
Oh, and if you consider getting back with her I'll come over there and take the ice pick to you, because you're an idiot. You know what I’m saying? Let it go. Move on. Find somebody else who’s going to love you for you.
