Communication is key in any relationship, romantic or otherwise.

Without clear and honest communication, misunderstandings can occur, leading to hurt feelings and broken relationships. This is a lesson that Reddit user learned in his own relationship when he discovered his girlfriend was lying about her whereabouts. The internet is a strange and wonderful place. A recent post on Reddit’s popular r/relationship_advice forum garnered an unexpectedly large response from users seeking to offer advice to a man concerned about his girlfriend’s recent behavior. The original poster suspected that his girlfriend was cheating on him, but the responses he received were mixed and sometimes toxic.

The OP received both helpful and harmful advice, and it reminded us of the importance of communication in relationships. Some users suggested that he simply end the relationship without even talking to his girlfriend, while others went so far as to encourage him to physically harm her. These responses are not only unhelpful but also incredibly dangerous. Fortunately, the OP did not take these toxic suggestions to heart. Instead, he chose to confront his girlfriend about his concerns, and they were able to have an honest conversation. Scroll down for the complete story.
