    I am very good friends with a girl, and we talk every day, and tell each other everything.

    She introduced me to guy who's a really close friend of hers a few months ago , and we were attracted to each other, and became friends, and ended up sleeping together, which I confided in her about.

    Things became a little complicated after, and we ended up keeping a bit of distance from each other, but we cleared the air eventually. Neither of us are looking for a serious relationship due to different reasons, moving away, etc. but we ended up seeing each other out again and there was still chemistry. We started talking again and it was becoming more and more flirty.

    We admitted that we both wanted to sleep together again and so that happened the other day, and we agreed to just see each other on a casual basis. He's moving abroad pretty soon so I know it won't be for long.

    However, I find it so hard to tell my friend. I know it's up to us what we do, but I don't want to hide things from her. I don't want to seem like I'm going behind her back or something, even though him and her have never been romantically involved and are just really good friends.

    I find it difficult to tell her because it's not a relationship too, and also I don't want it to make things awkward. What should I do? Thanks

    You don't need to tell her every little detail of your sex life, especially when you think it will be an awkward and unnecessary conversation. You're not going behind her back by not telling her every detail of who you sleep with. It's not her business and you should only discuss it with her if you're comfortable and willing to do so.

    Thanks for your answer, I appreciate it! Yes you're right! If he was my boyfriend, I wouldn't be telling her that kind of stuff either I guess; I wouldn't want it to be a relationship with 3 people in. I will keep it private.
