Dear Ruthie,

Holy crap. Seriously. My BFF just showed me a photo of a guy he met on Scruff. They haven’t hooked up, but they’re trying to find a time to do so. No lie—the guy is another friend’s boyfriend! I immediately told my BFF this guy was my other friend’s lover and he backed off instantly. But, what do I do about my friend? Tell him about his cheating man or stay out of it? Help!

—Drama Driven

Dear Drama,
Scruff, huh? I think you need to give me this guy’s profile so I can check him out! After that, tell your friend about his cheating boyfriend. You’d want a friend to do the same for you, right? Make it a one-on-one meeting; don’t let drama take over and, most of all, be calm and kind with your words.
