WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND?

I Had Sex With Your Cousin.

(story submitted by RES, a 19 yo Chestist)

Sometimes our past can intrude on our present.  Here's her story:

The guy I've been dating wants to make it official and is getting upset that I keep putting my decision off. I really do want to be with him because he's great, but before I ever knew he existed on the planet I slept with his cousin (two night stand, two years ago)…I don't want to bring it up, but I also do want him to just magically find out 2nd hand. I don't know what to do. {end story}

Here at OOC HQ, we don't think RES has anything to be uncomfortable with, and that she should say something because a lie of omission is a lie nonetheless.  But some people react strangely to things like who else we've slept with.  What do you think she should do?

    Tell him. Better he hear it from you than his cousin.

    I broke-up with a guy Junior year of college who could just not get over who my previous boyfriend was. If he’s going to get all weird and be all jealous either don’t tell him or find someone else. You don’t need that weirdness in your relationship.

      Totally agree. Just seems like you’d always have it in the back of your mind. Who wants that? If you make it into a big deal, then it will be a big deal. Definitely tell him.

    If you like this guy make it “official” (what’s that mean? exclusive?) Tell him before you do. That’s the honest thing to do.

    You have to tell him.
