Please keep me anonymous. I am a 24 years old lady. I have a job and I work diligently to earn well for myself. While in the university, I used to have a very close friend of mine who cared for me a lot. She was from an average home but she didn’t hesitate to help me whenever I was in need. She was more than a friend to me and many people knew we were best of friends. This our friendship continued even after we graduated. We stayed temporarily as roommates after school before we both found jobs and accommodation in different places.

We kept in touch regardless of the distance. Back in the university, she has this boy that she was dating. They were highly in love but they later broke up due to some problems which they could not resolve amicably. The break up took a huge toll on my friend and I was with her every step of the way. I was able to take care of her, console her and after some time, she got back on her feet and moved on with her life. Middle of last year, around January, she got married to another who she met five months after she broke up with her ex-boyfriend.
Her husband is well-to-do and I was so happy for my friend because the man loves her so much. I was even the chief bridesmaid during her wedding. At the wedding, her ex-boyfriend came, he even got a gift for my friend sue she accepted with open arms. At the wedding, I exchanged contacts with the ex-boyfriend and since then we have been talking. The boy told me the actual reason why they broke up and from what he said, it was my friends fault that the relationship ended the way it did. We were talking frequently and gradually something began to develop between us but I didn’t tell my friend.

We started dating after he asked me out last November in 2021 and since then, he has really been such a great guy. Our relationship is moving smoothly, we communicate very well and he treats me like any real guy would treat his woman. My best friend and I are still very close and she would often ask me if I have a man but I would always say no. I have never gotten the courage to tell her that I am in a relationship because I don’t know how she would react. She had even made few attempts to connect me with some of her husbands friends but none has ever worked. I feel terrible that I am dating her ex-boyfriend. I don’t know how she would react and I really need to tell her as soon as possible because from the way things are going between my boyfriend and I, he may propose soon. What do you think I should do?
