    'Leave' some evidence lying around for her to find.

    No-one will ever suspect you.

    Unless you sign it.

    Then they'll know it was you.

    Don't sign it.

    Yes. And if a friend knew that the person I was with was cheating on me and didn't tell me, I'd no longer consider them my friend.

    No, it's none of my business, but at the same time I wouldn't sit there and encourage him either.

    terrible advice, never rat out your mate to his gf. Nothing to do with you and therefore not your problem

    Two of my best friends were going out and one cheated on the other and told me. They broke up with their other half out of decency but that person was heartbroken and kept asking me why they had done it.

    They're getting back together again and I've said to my friend that they need to tell the other one about the cheating. Being in the middle like that is awkward to say the least, it's not my place to tell that person, but I have to urge my friend own up. You can't turn a blind eye, but you can't interfere as it's not your relationship at the end of the day. If they were a serial cheater I would have to say something to the other.

    Personally, I would never tell, I would just change friends.

    It really doesn’t make any difference if it’s a romantic relationship or a business relationship. Unethical people are unethical and I don’t want to have any dealings with them.

    Yes I would but I'd try to get them to tell her first because it'd be better coming from the other half than from me, and the only thing that concerns me is the hurt it causes and not the relationship itself, so I think it should come from the girl/guy who is cheating.

    If they refuse to tell or pretend to put it off, THEN I'd tell them.

    I would definitely strongly hint at it. And if they didn't get it, I'd flat out tell them. I don't understand people who say it's not their business when it's one of their BEST friends. It is certainly my business if someone I care about is being lied to and hurt.

    It's a hard one! You should probably tell but as we all know people always shoot the messenger!

    Meh. The worst part about finding out my ex had been cheating on me was the fact that some of our mutual friends knew - and had known for a long time. They'd stood by and watched that son of a ***** take the **** out of me and waste my time because it was "none of their business". That cut me more deeply than the cheating. Needless to say, none of them are friends any longer.

    I was in this situation before;a friend and I overheard our other friends boyfriend saying how he was sleeping with another girl. It wasn't just a one off either.
    I told my friend but she didn't believe us and her boyfriend denied it. They're still together, but I can't believe she believed him over us.

    Absolutely! If I was ever unfortunate enough to be cheated on then I would want to know asap, so I would have to let someone know if they were having that done to them. Especially if the cheater was being a little pr*ck about it as described in the OP.
