I recently listened to this Bill Burr podcast where one of his fans asked for his opinion on a situation. This guy was dating a girl who adamantly proclaimed to hate cheaters yet she was more than happy to cover for her best girlfriend who was going behind her boyfriend's back.
So I'm just curious how many people are like that where they claim to hate cheaters but if one of their friends is the one doing it then they'll look the other way.

I just love how the title of the video suggests this hypocrisy only exists in the female gender. Meanwhile in the real world, there are so many guys willing to even actively cover up for their brothers, friends and what not than I can count with both hands and feet while still demanding loyalty from their own girlfriends and wives.0

I was in this situation once actually. One of my very best friends had a short-term affair (few weeks) with another girl while having a long-term girlfriend. Since he also regarded me as one of his very best friends, he told me about it and asked for advice. I was totally shocked because he was one of the last people that I thought would do something like this. He regretted his actions but also said that it had been a very nice experience since his girlfriend was the only girl he had ever had sex with before this affair. Me being a little younger and more emotional and today (I was maybe 23 or so), I got super pissed at my best friend because I liked his girlfriend quite a lot (as a buddy I mean) and I felt very bad for her. So instead of giving my best friend some good advice how to get out of this mess again, I yelled at him and went home. At home, I sat on my computer and wrote a long email to his girlfriend, where I told her everything. What I didn't know back then: this was only the beginning of the real drama. Obviously, my best guy friend was super pissed at me. But more surprisingly, his girlfriend also didn't react in the way I had expected. Instead of thanking me for telling her about it, she reacted in a very cold, distant way, saying that it's none of my business (I was also giving her the advice to break up with my best friend). After several weeks of pure drama, I ended up being the loser. My best friend broke up the friendship with me because he felt like I had abused his trust (which he is right about) and his girlfriend didn't want to talk with me anymore because she said I'm too nosy and smartassing people. So while I only wanted to help, I ended up losing everything. Now, several years later, my best friend and me talk again but our relationship has become very superficial and more of "let's-try-to-be-polite-to-each-other" type of thing. It makes me incredibly sad when I think of all the great memories we have together... it was so not worth it. My best friend and his girlfriend came together again but a bit later she cheated on him and eventually broke up with him.
Now that I'm older and wiser, I've adopted my home country's favorite policy: neutrality. I'm now being very "Swiss" about these things. Other relationships are none of my business anymore and I don't want them to be. If a friend cheats on his girlfriend, I will tell him it's probably not a good idea but I will keep out of it 100%. People have to live their own lives...2
