I lied to my boyfriend about how many guys I've been with. It's been really eating at me and I feel like absolute sh*t. I do plan on telling him, and I even wrote a letter describing and telling him everything. Is the letter a good idea? I plan on giving it to him in person so that if he has any questions or comments I'm right there. Seeing him in pain will kill me, but I think after that lie the least I can do is see how much pain I caused him. Our whole relationship was always truthful and honest, this has been the only thing I lied about. If your boyfriend/girlfriend did this, would you leave or forgive him/her?
I've been a terrible girlfriend.. Should I tell him?

Guilt is a truly useless emotion, and, the past is the past. If anything, just let the feeling you have about this influence your future dealings with him, and others. Nothing good will come of detailing your sexual history to him (unless he's like me, and loves hearing about such things from my girlfriends).0
should you tell him? I'd say it's better to just act better.0
Best thing is just to leave it alone.0

Um no, you don't need to give him vivid details on what happen, that just makes it worse. Just make it short and tell him, hey I wasn't totally honest about all my partners, I've had so and so...but in depth details (unless you were like a stripper or something that needs the details) aren't your friend.1
