Honesty is always the best policy

Dear Edward,

I have been dating my girlfriend for a month and a half now. I just recently met her family and realized that I had hooked up with her older sister last year. Now when I’m around her sister it feels awkward. I don’t know if her sister realizes or remembers me. I haven’t told my girlfriend yet and don’t know if her sister has said anything to her about it yet. Should I tell my girlfriend that I had sex with her sister or act like nothing happened? ~Working Up the Family Tree.

Dear Family Guy,

I hate to say this, but the possibilities of this story ending well for you are slim at best. But that is the problem with having a night of casual sex.

There is no way around this one, so I suggest you sit your girlfriend down and tell her the story. She will find out one way or another.

I wish I could say she will understand that you and her hadn’t met yet, but its not likely. Sisters can be pretty competitive so its more likely she will feel her sister took something from her.

In the end, your your girlfriend may ket it go and the two of you can get on with your life. On the other hand, it might be far too awkward for her to handle and you will have to go your seperate ways.

No matter which way it could go, you always have a choice. You can keep quiet, or be honest. It’s only my opinion, but honesty is always the best policy. And keeping quiet about this puts you in a pretty deep hole, one you may never be able to climb out of.

If nothing else, you would be doing the unexpected; confessing to something she didn’t already know about.

Being straight with her may work to your advantage. By sitting down and telling her what happened, you may be showing her that you want to be honest with her about.

No matter what you choose, I wish you the best of luck, you’ll need it
