Let them talk!
You will find out who your true friends are.
After d-day I was an emotional wreck and I told everyone about the LTA-friends, family, co-workers, you name it.
The majority were very supportive and concerned.
And I was surprised at how many people shared their own stories of having been betrayed etc.
Were there those that gossiped?
I'm sure there were.
But,you know what?
The statistics being what they are more than 1/2 of those gossiping will eventually be affected by infidelity and then they will not be so smug.
