I am not going to tell you my name, but will tell you I go to school at a local college. I have been dating my girlfriend for two months. Yesterday, she told me she is going on a last-minute Spring Break trip with her friend Terri. I thought nothing of it and told her that I hope she and her girlfriend have a great time. She told me it's Terry with a "Y" not an "I". She is going with a guy, who she claims is just a platonic friend. My girl swears nothing is going to happen. I was shooting darts with friends last night when they said I should dump my girlfriend for even considering going away with another guy and not me. They say if she has to disclaimer it like she has than I am already in trouble. Should I trust my best friends or my girlfriend? What would you do if you were me?
