DearSugar and I Lied Laura need your help. She was dishonest with her boyfriend about how many men she's slept with when they first started dating, but she's now ready to tell the truth. Is it too late? Weigh in and tell her what you'd do.
My boyfriend and I have been together for a year now, and when we first started dating, I lied to him twice about how many guys I've slept with and he still doesn't know the truth to this day. This situation is on my mind daily. Part of me wants to tell him the truth, but I'm just so scared that he'll break up with me and I'll lose him forever.
I love my boyfriend so much and I can see things going much further in the future, but I don't want our relationship to be based on lies. Should I risk it and tell him the truth or stay mum and hope my guilt goes away?
