Guilt:
“I want to tell him I cheated but I don't want to lose him.”

Hey Terra,

Well I've been with my boyfriend a little over 4 months. I've recently lost my virginity to him. I love him a lot and things are going really good between us right now. But there is one problem... I've cheated on him with one of his good friends and I totally regret it!!!!!! I really want to tell him but I don't want to lose him. What should I do?????

Guilty

Dear Guilty,

That wasn't very cool of you or his "good friend"!

I think you need to tell your boyfriend the truth (so there's honesty in the relationship and so he can decide whether he can trust you anymore). But before you do that, you need to figure out why you did this and what you can say to convince him that it won't ever happen again.

In friendship,

Terra
