Such as betraying a secret you had promised to keep... just for example.

Most Helpful Guy
I used to do this but it got me into huge troubles one day. One of my very best guy friends admitted to me that he had been cheating on his long-term girlfriend for a few weeks (some affair with a girl he knew from childhood). He felt extremely bad about it but he also didn't want to stop it because the sex with his girlfriend apparently sucked and the sex with that other girl was amazing.
Now, back then I was this long-term single person and I got pretty pissed at him. I didn't tell him that I was pissed but I thought to myself "This is so unfair. For the past 4-5 years I've been desperately looking to find a girlfriend or at least have casual sex with a girl, all to no avail. This guy has everything I dream about and yet he would risk losing his amazing girlfriend over some sex." Also, in addition to my pretty extreme envy, I was also young (early 20s) and quite a bit of a moral priest. I still believe that cheating is wrong but now that I am in a 6-year relationship myself, I know what it means to be sexually bored. It's not that the sex in my relationships sucks. I love my girlfriend very, very much. But when you've been dating the same person for many years, it's just not the same as it was in the honeymoon phase (first 2 years of a relationship). You can't have sex with the same girl/guy for thousands of times, see them naked every day for years, shower together hundreds of times etc. and still feel the same passion as in the beginning. It's just not possible. Unfortunately, young and inexperienced people are a little dumb and they don't get this (that's also true for TONS of young people here on GaG). So they get all cocky and obnoxiously moralistic. Like I said: I don't condone cheating but now that I'm in a long-term relationship, I can understand why people do it. I can emotionally empathize with them.
Back then when my best friend told me about his cheating, I wasn't able to empathize with him. Instead I called his girlfriend behind his back and told her everything. I didn't intend to be a jerk but that's basically what I was. I just firmly believed it would be for my friend's own best interest if it all came out.
Well, the whole thing royally backfired on me.
Obviously, my friend was extremely angry at me. He had told me about his secret because he believed me to be trustworthy. However, his girlfriend was ALSO pissed at me because she felt like I'm meddling in with stuff that isn't my business. Eventually, they worked through the0
