My boyfriend’s dad caught my boyfriend and me having sex! I’m so stressed out and embarrassed. How am I gonna face his father without dying of embarrassment?! Please help!!
Ack! I’m not going to lie, getting caught having sex is totally awkward no matter what the situation is or who catches you. But don’t worry – you’re not alone! Couples get caught getting frisky all the time. Even though it might seem like the most embarrassing thing in the world, I promise you’ll get past this.
I know you probably would be happy if you never had to see your boyfriend’s dad again, but unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. The first few times you see him or talk to him might be a little awkward, but things will get better as time passes. The best thing you can do in this situation is just act completely normal. Keep in mind that your BF’s dad is probably also feeling totally embarrassed for walking in on you guys.
The next time you see him, just act like nothing weird happened. Keeping things light instead of avoiding or ignoring him is going to relieve some of the tension. Say hi and act respectful and polite. Don’t bring up the situation unless you know he’s really mad about it – in that case, a simple apology might be in order. But if he doesn’t bring it up and he doesn’t seem mad at you and your boyfriend, then that probably means he wants to forget it just as much as you guys do.
Honestly, the first few times you see him will probably feel totally uncomfortable. But like I said before, things will get better as time goes by. Eventually, it’ll be like it never happened – and it will also make a pretty funny story you can share with your girlfriends!
