What’s a girl to do when her best friend gets frisky while you’re both drunk? Is it cheating if you’re both girls and her boyfriend doesn’t mind?
The following question was posed to me by a work colleague during our morning commute:
Is it cheating if your best friend, who is also a girl, kisses you?
My co-worker, Kate, has a best friend who is quite partial to turning bi-curious whenever she is hitting the tequila bottle rather hard. As a result, Kate’s friend, Fiona, who has a boyfriend, will often become rather touchy-feely and flirtatious, even going so far as to attempt to kiss poor, innocent Kate. Kate confessed that this would make her feel rather uncomfortable and she would often make excuses not to go out with Fiona when alcohol would be involved. While I was listening to Kate’s dilemma, I couldn’t help but realise how her situation rang alarm bells with my own…
On a few occasions, my best friend has tried to kiss me when she has been drunk. I’m a single female, but she has a boyfriend. While I don’t have any romantic feelings for her, I can’t help but feel a little apprehensive whenever she tries to kiss me, even if it is just a bit of fun to her. However, it appears that I am the only one who sees a problem with this situation. You see, her boyfriend is well aware that she likes to do this. In fact, he doesn’t bat an eyelid when she does this in front of him. Neither of them consider it to be cheating. It appears I’m the only one having a slight moral dilemma over this situation. So I ask you, is it cheating if neither partner believes it is?
