Wherever you may go for relationship advice on how to keep any romance alive and healthy, you will surely get this advice: Be honest. This also roughly translates to a lot of different but all-sound relationship advice: ‘Do not lie to your partner.’ or ‘Do not keep secrets from your boyfriend.’ or, most importantly, ‘Never ever cheat on your partner.’
Indeed, cheating damages relationships, destroys someone’s ability to trust, and sometimes even diminishes a person’s capability to love without second-guessing everything. It is one of the most heartbreaking things you can go through — finding out that the love of your life isn’t being faithful anymore.
This is why netizen Arjhei Almadin sought relationship advice from her friends and other netizens at the first sign that her boyfriend might be cheating.
“Babe matangkad ka no?”
Based from Arjhei’s response to this text message her boyfriend sent her, it seemed to have been meant for another woman. Most probably, Arjhei’s boyfriend does not call her ‘Babe.’ She sent this series of messages in response:
Even though Arjhei seemed very rational and level-headed in the way she handled the situation, she is still obviously hurt and confused. Hence, she took the matter to social media so netizens could give her the relationship advice she badly needs.
Some netizens opted to give her boyfriend the benefit of the doubt — after all, for them, there was nothing incriminating with the text message her boyfriend sent. What if he just wanted to mix things up a bit and give his girlfriend a new term of endearment, right?
Still, the relationship advice Arjhei got the most was from netizens who thought her boyfriend no longer deserves a second chance:
What about you? Do you think Arjhei was right in presuming that the message she got was meant for her boyfriend’s side girl? How do you feel about how she responded — would you have responded the same way if you found out your significant other could be cheating? Any piece of advice you wanna give Arjhei?
