There is something terribly wrong with your boyfriend. 1) An 'intimate text exchange' (sexting, right?) with 2) the widow of 3) his friend? Three reasons that are imo good enough to dump him - at least, if he doesn't have a good explanation/regrets it deeply. I would definitely reconsider this relationship. Sexting to another woman is a first step to cheating. Sexting to a grieving widow is an whole new level of being an arsehole.

13 - Or replying to the first comment is the best way to get your comments read by others. Just the trick of the trade, brah. Get used to it.

its actually not that uncommon for recent widows to latch on to the first person to give them attention. having just lost the person closest to you you a) need someone to be there and as such misread your own feelings when someone does comfort you b) fear remaining alone c) usually arent in the best state of mind

I think the point was her boyfriends an ass for being intimate with someone who was married to his best friend who died 3 weeks ago. Not necessarily the widows fault because the state shes in. Not only is he "cheating" if you want to call it that, but that's a "douchy" thing to do.

Normally a bunch of thumbs-down on a comment are a pretty accurate indication of it being lame or stupid, but what in the world? Are we all against open and honest communication now? Yet someone suggesting a three-way when it's clear that the OP finds the situation disturbing is applauded. I suppose FML isn't the greatest cross-section of humanity, anyway.

I have to agree entirely with this. However it never says how long this 'text exchange' has been going on, but either way, he's still an asshole for doing that to both the OP and his so called friend.

howd we jump from intimate texts to sexting? he could have simply been telling her shes a gorgeous woman, who hed ask out if he were single, etc etc. kind of a leap to go from intimate to sexting. i still think hes an idiot, but i really think people are jumping on the cheating bandwagon way too easily.

You have a point there. I was assuming the OP was using the word intimate to mean something of a romantic nature, or at least, a nature beyond friends. But she could be overly jealous about a series of texts that she's misconstrued. This is why I never used to assume anything about an FML. But sometimes, you either have to, or you do without realising it because of the way you've read it.

"he could have simply been telling her shes a gorgeous woman, who hed ask out if he were single, etc etc." Well, then it isn't sexting, but it's still something you don't do if you're in a relationship and/or to a grieving widow. It's still plain disturbing.

@82 yes but you can see that his heart may have been in the right place if hes saying those things, rather than just flat out sexting. its stupid, rather than deceptive. or, thats the way i see it anyway :P im not saying it WASNT sexting, but intimate doesnt just imply sex.

but the thing is when your with someone intimacy should be between the partners. when it reaches outside the relationship that's when it's cheating, emotional cheating. women take this very seriously while men just think it's harmless fun...... til they FALL into someone!

"The road to hell is often paved with good intentions." And you're right, he might've simply been trying to help, but that doesn't really make up for the fact that he's crossed a line.
