    That's a tough one. I've seen many friendships end because of this.

    I would confront my own friend first before meddling into someone else's relationship. I'd let that friend know that what she/he is doing is wrong and that I'm very disappointed on him/her. I wouldn't give this friend an ultimatum because I am nobody to control her life or what she does but I would say that the best would be to come clean and break it off with their current significant other before more damage is done. Cheating is a very hurtful situation and no one should be put through that amount of trouble.

    Why cheat? If you're not satisfied with your current BF/GF just break up with them before doing something that might jeopardise your integrity and your future relationships not counting how much emotional damage is done.

    That is a very hard one to answer. I know many friends don't believe it when they tell them their partner is cheating. I would definitly want to know, i'm sure everyone would. I might do it if its a close friend other wise I would just mind my own buisness and let them deal with their relationship. If they need your advice i'm sure they would ask for it.

    That's a tough one, but being one that was cheated on, I do wish someone had told me.
    I think if it is done in a delicate, loving and caring manner, that a friendship can survive. Best friends are best friends for a reason.

    Hello Competitor82:
    Yes, unambiguously would-(CHEATING-To violate rules or agreements-to be sexually unfaithful).  (FRIEND-A person who gives assistance, patron, a person attached to another by feelings of affection). To have a clean spirit-the notion of a being truthful is the only way.  The therapeutic bond that develops between two people involved should be generated with_LOVE_not_SIN.
    Competitor82, all forms of sexual behavior that is unethical leads too someone's else heart being restraint.
    Thanks, good question by the way, take care.

    I think you should confront the cheater first and tell them to spill the beans or you will. Yet again it would back fire. I think it just depends on how well you know that friend, and to try to get proof so they know you are telling the truth

    In my opinion no. Most of the time friends tell you they are stepping out on their significant other. I don't condone what is happening, but my loyalty is to my friends and not their gf/bf.

    Now on the other hand, if I catch their gf/bf cheating, I would tell them. I know it's two sided but my loyalty isn't to their gf/bf. My friend would have a decision to make concerning that realationship. I wouldn't want me knowing that this was happening to come back on me and devaste my friendship and loyalty to my friend.

    As I would want to know if my friend saw my siginifcant other cheating on me.

    I would talk with my friend and tell them they needed to be honest with their gf/bf...if they don't...yeah, I probably would.

    This isn't a yes and no question. If I was a lifelong friend with someone that I knew trusted me and would receive my comments well, I would definitely tell them.  I may not tell them if I couldn't be there for them during the fall-out because I think there's a certain obligation that comes with being a bearer of truth.  I would NOT tell someone who is likely to doubt me or someone whom I do not have a lot of time vested with.  I'd put that in the not-my-business category.
