Question Posted Saturday January 20 2007, 11:49 pm
Okay. I have a guy friend...And I love him soooo much...he's definitely my best friend. But in the beginning of our relationship, I told him that I have a step father. It was accidental...and now I regret it. Thing is - I DON'T have a step father...but somehow it spilled out. Now he is questioning our relationship and he doesn't think he knows the "real" me. He thinks I'm hiding something...I know it's kind of stupid...But I dunno. ;_;...Should I tell him that I DO have a REAL father? It's runining our friendship...I know, I know...it seems like a stupid reason...but we are supposed to be honest :( Should I tell him the truth?

If he doesn't want to be friends after you've told him the truth, let him go. He is not a true friend if anything can get in the way.

I would just let him know soon. Just be like,"I do have something to tell you. You know my step-father? I don't have a step-father, I have a real father. I don't know why I told you I had a step-father, but it slipped out for some reason. That's the only thing though I've not been truthful about. Everything else about me, is me."
Or something like that.
He might get upset that you weren't honest, but hopefully over time after he's to himself to think and everything, he'll get over it and forgive you. If you guys are best friends, I'm sure he will.
