Guilt over lying
13
Wed, 08-31-2011 - 3:58pm

This is a continuation to a problem I posted in June. My BF of 13 years had gone on vacation. While he was gone I went out to a bar with my daughter. I danced with an older man who I was not attracted to but I guess I thought it would be fun to dance. I knew my BF would not be happy if he knew. I told him I didn't go to the bar that night but my guilt made me tell him the truth the next day. He did ask if I danced with anyone and I said no, fearing he would be too mad.

Yes, I see a counselor, but only when I have these break downs. She is not DV although I did see one of those when I was posting 5 years ago on here. I see her on Tues.-- it seems like an eternity to me.

Strong2006, the prevalent opinion is that if you were in a healthy relationship - a non-abusive relationship, this wouldn't be an issue because you didn't do anything wrong.

If you really didn't do anything wrong there is no need to lie.
