Hello Therapist, 

I am 20 years old and dating my brother's friend. We didn't tell our brother yet. However, now I got to know that my bf is getting close to my friend. I have doubts that he is two-timing me. Should I tell my brother about it?

Hello Pinkvilla Reader, 

You do seem to be in a dilemma but let’s see if we can sort this out. I hope your brother is open-minded and would take the news of your dating in the proper spirit. There is an equally good chance that he might already know it from someone else or will find out soon. It would be fine to tell him about your relationship. Whatever initial reaction in the end I think he will definitely be on your side. 

The situation with your boyfriend doesn’t seem very clear. Why are you having trust issues? You should explore this angle on your own rather than just hearsay. Ask your friend about the truth. Try not to use an accusatory tone. These things have to handled in a delicate manner or else you might lose your friend due to misjudgment. If still in doubt then maybe you could confide in your brother and come to a conclusion.
