My girlfriend accidentally sent out an e-mail to everyone in her address book where she admits to cheating on me. Now all my family, friends, and of course me knows she's been unfaithful. The thing is, she's now claiming she didn't do it, she was hacked; somebody wrote all that stuff to get her in trouble, etc. I want to believe her but c'mon - that's pretty far fetched, right? I broke up with her this week but miss her terribly. I'm not even sure exactly what I'm asking in terms of advice - I guess I'd just like to hear your thoughts. Embarrassed Evan
Dear Embarrassed Evan
It definitely seems strange that she would send an e-mail to everyone in her address book about cheating on you. It makes her look really bad. Does she have an enemy who is looking to settle a score with her? That's a pretty mean thing to do. Something for you to think about - does she seem angry about this happening to her - is she going to great lengths to prove to you how untrue this e-mail is and is she desperate to get you back? OR is she barely trying to make amends with you and not really caring what happened. If she's acting remorseful, then hear her out; but if she's being blase about the whole thing then I'll bet she was cheating. I am sure you miss her. It's a terrible ordeal to have to endure.
