So, I have a girlfriend, and there is a rumour going around my school that I am cheating on my girlfriend with another girl. This rumour is false.
My first complaint is now my girlfriend is mad at me.
My second complaint was the girl who I am "rumoured" to be with, her boyfriend is now mad at me, and he was my best friend.

How do I stop this rumour from spreading? I need help. :sweatdrop:

Lol this website is only for growtopia related comments and questions, but I will help you on your real life situation. You should probably tell people that again that you are not cheating and show proof you are not, like for example show evidence that the girl that people think you are cheating with doesn't like you but likes you as a friend. You should also tell people to mind their business and tell them to get a life. I know it's harsh but it's possibly the only way to stop it. Thats all I got hopefully it would stop. :)

This website is not only for growtopia. It is for the games/programs/etc. that Seth has made.

Also, it's not only for games and programs. It's for life things too. It's called a discussion forum for a reason. To discuss anything you want.

Dude, THIS is the RTSoft Tavern, not the Growtopia General Chat. It says clearly on the RTSoft Tavern description that we can discuss about anything (that won't break the rules, of course.)

There is also a reason why it says "Growtopia Discussion" and says growtopia. Doesn't say real life discussions anywhere. If he needs help he should talk to his counselor in his school. This website is for only growtopia and growtopia only. Its called Growtopia forums for a reason also. Lol :nope:

Telling people to mind their own buisness and get a life will not only seem harsh, but may make them think the rumor is true. You're going to try to brush them off the topic which will only convince them that the rumor is true.

It's called RTsoft forums.
and if you read the description for RTsoft Sub-Forum it clearly says "Help yourself to a free drink at the RTsoft tavern, kick back, and discuss (almost) whatever pleases ya."

I know it and I agree but does he really want to talk about real life stuff in a game community website. :confused:

Please learn to read sub forums and know that the forums is called "RTSoft Forums" and not "Growtopia Forums" before you comment.

Firsthand have had something like this but ended up pretty bad, so first I'd tell your girlfriend everything that's happened, calm her down first. Than move on to your best friend, you don't want to lose him. After they realize it and after those things you told them start to float around nobody will care. It'll just pass after a week or so, if it continues pm me and I can help. Also for some brownie points tell your girlfriend in person, not over text or anything like that and same goes for your best friend. If the rumors aren't true you have nothing to worry about!

Thanks to my best woman friend. She said do the chain method (She's so smart)

Chain Method:

Ask the person who old you about the rumour: "Who told you about the rumour?"
Then, go to that person and ask him\her the same question
Then keep going on and on and on. Until you find the one who started it.

No offense but those people seem really stupid to believe *any and every* rumour that go around..
I'd understand your girlfriend loosing a little trust in you, not much though (cause that's normal), but getting mad at you is stupid.

The one who started it will just say that they heard it from someone you already asked..

1. This isn't in Growtopia General Chat
2. This is RTsoft Forums, just it says "Growtopia Forums" because it brings you to the Growtopia area

I believe 99.99% rumors are fake. As long as you love your Girlfriend there is nothing to worry about. True love is what it counts.

Accept rumors with a steady stand, they were made to bring you down, show them that it won't work.
jk.
If your girlfriend believes this rumor then i dont think she trusts you, that is gonna be a problem one day.

Find that guy and chase him with an umbrella.

Worked for me.:crazy:

But you can solve this problem by ignoring it and telling your friend. If he doesn't listen, bahala na siya. Lol.

And you can report it at the principals office or Guidance Counselor.
