Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin) is a smart, talented and driven attorney at a top law firm in New York. She spends most of her free time with her best friend Darcy (Kate Hudson), who is a bride-to-be … to-be married to Rachel’s longtime crush from law school, that is. Friendships are tested when a series of unexpected events lead Rachel to sleep with Darcy’s fiance (Colin Egglesfield) after celebrating her 30th birthday. Rachel sucks her good friend Ethan (John Krasinski) into the mess, and the three of them try to clean things up while Darcy finds something old, something new, Something Borrowed and something blue.

What should you do if you find out your friend is being cheated on?

Cupid’s Advice:

Knowing that a close friend of yours is being played by their partner is a tough situation. Figuring out what part you play in the messy situation can be difficult, so Cupid thought of some steps you can take:

1. Talk: It’s always smart to talk to the cheater before anything else.  Make sure you’re right about what’s going on, and try to figure out what he or she plans on doing about it.  If there’s no plan to stop, give him or her the option of telling your friend.  If not, tell your friend yourself.

2. Hint: A safe approach you can take is telling your friend … without actually telling him or her.  Make subtle comments about how their partner has been “working late a lot lately,” and point out how it doesn’t make sense with his or her scheduale.  This way you can help your friend without actually starting problems with the cheater.

3. Tell: If the cheating doesn’t stop and your friend still isn’t getting the hint, just be up front.  Don’t stall!  The longer the affair lasts, the more hurt your friend is going to be.
