I met and became good friends with a guy. We hung out couple of times inside and outside. It is pure friendship, no feelings on both sides whatsoever. We hung out a lot as I was trying to get this friend back on their feet as he is going through a difficult time. I feel guilty for not telling my boyfriend about him or hanging out with him because we always tell eachother everything. I did not think of it, I was too focused on trying to help. I am so loyal and would NEVER betray him ever. On the other hand, I feel like perhaps I should let it go and never tell him about it as he would get very upset due to hanging out alone especially inside, and I just met this guy. Sort of like that quote, don't do good things that may seem otherwise. Perhaps some things are better left unsaid. What do you think? I really don't want my boyfriend to mistrust me because I've never betrayed him in any way for the whole 5 years together. :( PS: I am no longer hanging out with this friend until I introduce him to my boyfriend , honest opinions

I think someone should not make NEW opposite gender friends while in a relationship. If I was him and found out, I would lose trust in you for that and doubt your loyalty.
I suggest always asking permission first before making new opposite gender friends.
How would you feel if your boyfriend was spending time alone with another girl without asking you first and hid it from you?
No matter what he said, wouldn't that make you doubt his loyalty and wouldn't you always be a little suspicious of him after that?0

Always be honest. Always.
Would you want to know that your boyfriend was with a girl alone? It's just common courtesy. Keeping this from a SO to not bring "harm" unto them, disturb the peace or because YOU think it's for the best, is not fair or respectful towards your SO. Your boyfriend will appreciate your honesty and remember, don't treat others especially your SO like you wouldn't enjoy being treated.
Truthfullness, honest etc those things always win vs hiding things.0
