I have a friend and about 7 years ago, he had met this girl, she seemed nice and all, and my friend gave his virginity to her and not long after that, she cheated on him with his best friend, obviously they broke up. Now 7 years later, he met up with her and is now back together with her, saying that he's aware of her past and he doesn't want to lose her again. I've told him it's a really bad idea for him to get back with her, but obviously he doesn't really care. Should I just let him be with her and let him learn his lesson? What should I do to let him know he's making a huge mistake, if anything? Would you give someone another chance after they cheated on you even years later? To everyone who responded, thank you and everyone has a valid point. I did word a part of my question wrong: I was coming from a place of frustration, and helplessness, not to mention extreme concern for my friend. He is a big boy and will do what he's will do, no matter what. You're right, when someone already has their heart set on something, there's nothing anybody can do to change their mind. I absolutely do believe that people can change, in fact a lot of people do change over the years and for the better. I just know that my experiences with giving someone who's cheated on me a second chance have been disastrous to say the least and I was wrong to think that he'll go through the same thing. I really do hope she's changed and that this time, it'll work out with them, because I want to see him happy and he absolutely deserves to be as happy as possible!Answer Question

You already gave your opinion. Let it go so it doesn't end up ruining your friendship with him.

I don't think there is much you can do other than be there for your friend when he needs you.
