We have been good friends since high school. When we both turned 30, we found ourselves both still single, and the race was on to be the first one to get married.
She started testing the waters on on-line dating, and got herself a profile on lavalife. Every single night she had a date. I couldn't believe that there were so many single men in Vancouver. I couldn't keep track who was who anymore. There were just so many coffee dates, and dinner dates. She finally met the man of her dreams, and in six months got engaged. They had a wonderful lavish reception before that year was over. Her son just turned one year this year.
We still do lunch once a week and we don't really talk much about her relationship. I mean, I just assume everything is as happy-ever-after as she had expected. I get bits and pieces. Like he's been gone a lot travelling for work and she wishes that he wouldn't. After all, they now have a baby to take care of.
A couple of weeks ago, another girlfriend called me to ask if they were having problems because she saw his old profile on lavalife active. We did what most women would do, we pooled our resources and snooped around. She sent him an email to go on a date. Sad to say, he did not disappoint us.
My girlfriend and I have given him a week to tell her, or else we would. The week is almost up and we are dreading the prospect that we might have to tell her. So, how do you do that? Tell a friend that her husband is cheating on her?
