Is Silence really Golden.
Guy likes a girl whose boy friend is cheating on her. Is he doing her a favour by shutting up?
Or is he just being selfishly strategic? If he tells her, she will hate him for breaking the bad news. (“And if I tried I know she’d say I lied”). But if he waits until she learns the truth, he can rush in to pick up the pieces.
Yeh sometimes it is best to keep your mouth shut, but ultimately isn’t the truth more important.
