'I slept with a guy on a train'
Dear Diana, I'm a Mumbai-based journalist and I recently went on an assignment to various places in north India.
On the train, I met this guy from the north-east who was very attractive. One thing led to another and we ended up on the berth heaving and sighing. Now that I’m back in the city, I’m experiencing phases of guilt since my boyfriend is not the kind who’ll cheat on me but I have obviously cheated on him. Should I just tell him that I’ve slept with a stranger? Or should I just keep my mouth shut and act as if nothing happened?
It all depends on how mature your guy is. Will he be able to handle the truth? First give this a thought before you make your confession. If you think it will ruin your life and his, it is better to keep your lips sealed. It appears that things happened in the heat of the moment and both of you got carried away. It looks like he nor you want to be in touch. As long as that is the case, it is better to forget the episode. But remember next time think before you take the plunge. What if your guy had done something similar? I am sure you would be devastated. So will he if you tell him!
Diana will solve it!
