My ex-best friend swears by your column so I decided to give you a try. The reason he’s my ex-best friend is because I just found out he’s been smashing the girl I’ve been seeing behind my back for the last four months. Mind you she and I have been dating for five of those months, AND they met through me. She and I don’t really have any labels attached to our set up; so I feel like I can’t really be mad at her. Needless to say, when it comes to my homeboy I’m furious beyond words. He and I were like brothers. My other boys told me to let it go and squash the beef with him because “it ain’t no fun if your homies can’t have none…” am I wrong in feeling the opposite?

***Furious in Birmingham, you are in no way wrong about your feelings! The girl you were dating, your ex- best friend, and all your homeboys who are trying to force feed you this “sharing girls philosophy” are all assholes! You are better off without them. First off whether you two were together or not, she should not have been messing with one of your friends. That’s beyond messy. She does not get a pass! As for your “fraud friend” this only goes to show you that they do not give a damn about you, or respect the Bro Code. The latter iterates, albeit bluntly, you do not mess with a girl your friend was involved with. Sad to say, none of these people have your best interests at heart. Be furious for now, move on with your life, and don’t look back. You have learned a truly valuable lesson–ninjas ain’t loyal either!
