Cupid's Pulse Article: Snooki & JWOWW Tell Sammi the TruthCupid's Pulse Article: Snooki & JWOWW Tell Sammi the Truth

As of Season 2 Episode 4 of Jersey Shore, nothing has changed between Ronnie and Sammi.  Ronnie continues to act single every night at the club only to go back home and get in bed with Sammi.  While fully aware of what Ronnie is doing, everyone else in the house remains afraid to tell Sammi the truth due to their friendship with Ronnie and their desire not to hurt Sammi.  Though Sammi suspects that something is up and even questions Angelina, no one brakes their silence until JWOWW suggests they write her an anonymous note.  Snooki and JWOWW then go over to an internet cafe to type up the letter detailing all of Ronnnie’s actions with other women so far this season.

Should you tell a friend when their boyfriend or girlfriend is cheating on them?

Cupid’s Advice:

No one likes being the bearer of bad news, but when cheating is involved, telling the truth is the right thing to do.  Though your friend may be upset at first, they will be grateful in the end that you told them what was really going on.

1. Friends don’t let friends live a lie: If you were being cheated on by someone who you thought loved you, you would most likely want to know.  It’s usually best to treat others the way you want to be treated.  Think past the awkwardness of the conversation in favor of the greater good.

2. Say it in person: The girls of Jersey Shore were doing the right thing by breaking their silence and telling Sammi the truth.  However, receiving an anonymous note can raise more questions than it answers.  A face-to-face conversation, although difficult, may be the respectable way to go.

3. Be a shoulder to cry on: You are probably telling your friend about their significant other’s infidelity because you care about and respect them.  But your job as a friend isn’t over once you’ve dropped the bomb.  Talk them through their feelings and show that you are there for them both now and always.
