True Confession — I Lied to My Roommate

Weigh in and tell us if you forgive or not forgive this True Confession.

"My roommate brought her Internet date to our place. I totally knew this guy and I finally remembered why — I met him online a year ago and we fooled around a bit after our one and only date. We acted like we didn't even know each other. Since I don't know if their date is going anywhere yet, is it OK that I lied to my friend?"

if it were me i would obviously tell her. but i dont know. i voted undecided. because theres really nothing to forgive here. if hes a bad guy, i dont forgive u for keeping it hush-hush. but if hes a good guy, i guess its okay because its between u and him and if she knows, it might ruin something good

Unless he was a creep, I wouldn't have told her either! That wouldn't help anything, it would just cause drama.

Nothing happened... a non-issue.

It's no big deal. Just be like, "I thought your date looked kind of familiar, and I totally spaced on where I've seen him before, but now I remember..." I mean, that's the truth, after all.

Forgive, it doesnt seem like what you and him had was a big deal..however it just depends on ur relationship with ur roomate..i wouldve told my roomie right away (when he had left of course) but thats just cus we have that kind of relationship plus u dont want her finding out later on..that will just make u look bad

Forgive. Like someone said, he may not remember you. No use embarrassing him AND her. Besides, your little tryst with him didn't really matter. Truthfully, if I were you, I wouldn't disclose remembering him, unless he confesses. If he does confess, just say that you didn't say anything because it seemed like he didn't remember you, and you didn't want to embarrass him (or yourself.). Besides, your experience with him was insignificant. JMHO.

I would have told her later, no point in embarrassing her while he's still there. q:

I don't think there is a right answer here. I probably would have done the same thing you did, it's hard to figure out what to do in like one second like that. But I would go ahead and tell her what happened. Tell her that you just didn't realize where you knew him from at first and that you just went on one date etc. I don't think it should be that big of a deal.

I would tell her if they start seeing eachother more frequently, or heck, tell her now that you just realized that you knew him. Might sound a bit dumb, but it is better than lying and her getting upset that you waited so long.

I would only say something if they start to get serious.

just tell her you couldn't put it together where you knew him from and you just wanted to let her know just in case he ever says something about it that way you don't look like you were hiding something from her. let her know it was a long time ago and that it was so quick and insignificant that you barely remembered him and it took you a long time to place where you knew him from. i'm sure she'll understand but either way i think you should tell her that way she doesn't figure it out from someone else.

I really do not think it is that big of deal. It sounds to me like you had to really think about it before you even remembered him and who's to say he doesn't remember you at all. You may have been acting like you didn't know him but maybe he wasn't acting.

This reminds me of the Rory Gilmore and Marty situation...awkward!! I don't think you did a bad thing necessarily and it's hard when you're in a situation and have to think of what to do within 2 seconds. Definitely forgiveable. However, you might want to rethink this and tell her sooner rather than later. If they keep seeing each other, and she finds out, things could get weird.

While I can't say that I wouldn't have done the same should have told her!

I would've done the same thing, it's hard to explain to a friend when you have been involved with or even just know things about someone they are interested in. Probably though you should just fess up to her, it's better to let her know now from you then for her to find out from him later if things continue for them . . . hopefully she'll understand that you were nervous to see this guy again and just lost your words. I'd forgive u!
