Dear Angela

My boyfriend (30) cheated on me with a girl I (26) have known since primary school.

At first I thought it was just a fling, and was willing to work on our relationship, but then my boyfriend said he really likes the girl, and broke up with me to be with her.

This happened two weeks ago, and at this stage I'm not even sure anymore whether I still love my ex. But I want revenge.

I want my ex to hurt as much as I did, and I want him to beg for me to get back with him.

One of his mates has a huge crush on me, and I thought I could maybe sleep with the guy. That would surely make my ex very jealous.

The only problem is that I don't fancy this fella, but that's a small price to pay for my revenge.

Should I go for it or what do you think?

Answer: No, revenge sex is never a good idea.

Your ex would surely be annoyed if you slept with his mate, but the only person who'd get really hurt is the guy you intend to sleep with.

It's not fair to play with his feelings, especially as you acknowledge he has a crush on you. So forget about your little plot - it wouldn't work in the long run anyway.
