Take My Advice: Share The Love…Sores

My close friend recently broke up with her boyfriend, and told us it was mutual, just grew apart, blah blah. But I ran into his best friend at a party and he told me that my friend not only cheated, she gave her boyfriend herpes. Once he woke up with herpes, basically, he realized she’d been sleeping around and dumped her. I know she’s in a “take a guy home from the bar” phase post-breakup, and seeing as she didn’t even tell us about what happened, I doubt she’s telling the guys. Should I say something to her? Should I go out with her and cockblock? I have no idea how to handle this, but I’m afraid for the eligible male┬ápopulation. More

I have a friend who’s very…empowered about taking guys home. She claims she just does it because she has fun, and that she’s not looking for anything serious, so I mostly keep my mouth shut. Recently, though, she slept with one of my guy friends and he told me that she gave him herpes, and that she didn’t tell him she had it before they slept together. I feel like I should say something to her, but I don’t know what–that I know? That she needs to see a doctor? The whole subject is super awkward, but I think that what she’s doing is wrong. How do I get her to address this? More
