What would you do if you were put in a sitiuation where you find out about something that could possible hurt someone. Do you tell that person or wait for the persn who committed the deed tell them, What if that person never tells the other person, Should you then step in. Like say your best friend was being cheated on, do you tell her or do just sit there and let things continue on like you never knew. Then if your friend found about the whole thing and you didnt tell her, and she found out you knew, is it ok for her to be mad at you,. I havent been in this sitution before, but i wanna know what people think is the right thing to do.

Tell her....I have no sympathy for liars, cheats and cowards. ANd anyone who has the audacity to cheat on someone and does not own up to the fact the relationship is over well they should be exposed. I would expect my friends to tell me and I do unto others as I would want to be done to me.

I enjoy these situations because they give me a scheme to think up. I generally like to set the person who did the deed up so they get caught by the other person. In your situation for example, I would find out where the person was going on a date (without the cheater knowing) and happen to choose the same place to hang out with my friend so he can discover it for himself. This way the person that did the deed does not need to know it is because of you that they found out and would have no reason to backlash.

hehe your kinda mean, but i think that your right, if i made it so that person could see it with their own eyes, the person caught has no one to blame but them self.

Silence is golden :) Keep quiet about it if you think it will hurt that person. Let the one who did the deed confess. If they never do, that just shows how low a person they truly are, and your friend will find that out for themselves. If you tell them the truth and the other person lies and convinces your friend that you lied, the friend will only hate you.

I would tell the person... It's not right... I wouldn't wanna have something wrong done to me... If you tell the person & they decide to ignore you, that's different story...
