I had the most awkward run-in yesterday. Me and two guys from work went to lunch. I got sick to my stomach after I saw my girlfriend having lunch with another man. I waved and sat down to eat with my friends. As she was leaving, she introduced her friend to the table. Last night, we had a long discussion about what she did. This man is someone she met on a dating site before me.. They have maintained a friendship and have been going to lunch and dinners on a regular basis. She never told me about him. Something doesn't feel right even though she claims they are platonic. She says she feels he came into her life for a reason. Should I end the relationship or not?
