6 Things to Stop Doing Now If You Want Happy, Healthy Relationships

This or That: Your Man or Your Dad?

You and your best friend have always shared everything with each other no matter how embarrassing or personal. She's the only person (outside of your husband and family) that you feel that close to. For the past few months, you've felt a distance widening between the two of you and you beg her to tell you what's eating at her. She gets upset, and begins to cry. Would it be worse if she confessed to...

This: Having an affair with your husband? It's been happening off and on since your wedding. She ended it a month ago, but she still has feelings for him.

Or...

That: A romantic relationship with your father? Your parents have been divorced for a decade, and you've never known your dad to date younger women — until now. She claims that she's actually in love with him.

Would definitely prefer the second option (with the divorced dad.) Then again my dad has had an affair before... I think I'd kill someone if it was the first option. -_-'

I bet the real stats are more like 95% to 5% and the other 40% (myself included) didn't read the question properly. I just assume I'm always voting for what I'd rather have. I agree it's confusing that you're voting for the negative response.

They have to quit doing the "double negative" with "this or that". It's confusing whether you're supposed to vote for what you want or what you don't want. Another poster has a good point about it being easier to boot people out of your life who aren't your parents. But I'll still have to go with it being better she's with dad. I'll definitely take my best friend over the evil fake bitch from the deepest bowels of hell he's seeing on the side at the moment. I'll have to commit some kind of double homicide if I'm ever cheated on, and I'd like to skip that unpleasantness.

it'd be really weird if she was with my dad, but it would be AWFUL if she was sleeping with my husband.

Well, the sleeping with my Dad thing would be a little weird, but nowhere near as devastating as her having an affair with my husband.

I'd much rather have her in love with my Dad than cheating with my husband. Honestly, I'm trying to picture it and I can't even see myself being all that upset that two people I care about managed to find love with each other. :?

It would be odd, but she could date my dad. NEVER my husband!

Wow, that is a REALLY HARD one. I can see why the results are almost totally split down the middle.

I think people have accidentally voted for the wrong one, too. I can't say I'd be very upset if my good friend started dating my Dad. I actually really dig the idea of my friends becoming my family, so...

I reckon that since the pickin's are slim, the b@tch is done with, at any rate.

If she wanted to bag my dad, I would be perfectly fine with it and understand why they weren't completely up front with me, after all, if they got married she would technically be my step mother. If she was having an affair with my husband, on the other hand, I would kill her. Plain and simple.

I'd rather have her admit to sleeping with my dad than with my husband. It is disgusting, yes, but at least your heart won't be broken.

Your father is never out of your life. While best friend + husband is a double betrayal, you can boot them out of your life. Best friend + Daddy = awkward and a likely loss of such a close relationship with both. I'm a Daddy's girl. I'd rather ditch a dishonorable friend and cheating hubby than have my relationship with Dad strained.
