Glam It Up

Our writer turned to a local rocker for some wardrobe tips.

I feel like such a backstabber for betraying my friend's trust, but by the same token I can't let go of the feelings I have for her boyfriend. I already had a crush on him, but the phone sex escalated my desires and now it's only a matter of time before we take it to the next level.

I know that I have put my relationship with my friend in jeopardy, but I can't help it; I want him. Am I setting myself up for failure?

Backstabber:

The politically correct thing for me to say is, don't do it, but bump all that. At this juncture, you almost have no choice; here's why. Whenever the heart and mind are in conflict, usually the heart wins. Your mind can be saying, "He is wrong for me. I shouldn't go there." But your heart will tell your mind, "Screw you. I like him and I'm going to be with him no matter what."

To be perfectly clear, I'm not saying you should stab your friend in the back by cheating with her boyfriend. I'm saying living in this world has shown me people follow their hearts more often than their minds. And I suspect you will cheat even though you would be wrong as Bishop Eddie Long. The way I'm built wouldn't allow me to betray my friend by flirting with or sexing his girl. I don't care how attractive she is. I would never permit myself to look at her in a sexual way.

You've already said it's only a matter of time before you take it to the next level. Your mind is made up, and nothing I say will dissuade you. So I suspect that unless you get a sudden case of the holy ghost or some uncontrollable force intervenes, you will have an affair with your friend's boyfriend. That says a lot about the kind of person you are.
