Ask Aunty S

Dear Aunty S

My best friend of nine years stole my boyfriend off me and now six months later he has dumped her.

I spent five months getting over the betrayal of both of them and now she wants to be my best friend again.

What should I do?


Aunty S Responds:

Quite frankly my dear I cannot believe that you would even contemplate taking her back as a friend.

Thank goodness you wrote!

With dignity make it clear to her that she is in the past and you have no intention of ever trusting or confiding in her again so from this minute on she must never phone, email, pat your dog, utter your name in public, glance in your direction or park her car within 100m of yours because quite simply the friendship was over the minute she slept with your boyfriend and that is all there is to the matter.
