My boss invited all the employees and their plus one to his home for our annual Christmas Party. I bring my boyfriend of six years and soon-to-be fiancé, Kevin, to join me. When we arrived, I felt awkward stares from one of the managers, Steve. Upon introducing Kevin to my work family, Steve hesitates, shakes his hand, and says, "Pleasure to meet you," to Kevin's reply, "Pleasure is all mine." We sit at the dinner table, and Kevin gets a strange text from Pizza Hut that says, "Oh, so it's her turn tonight?" I'm sitting there like, who tf is this? I immediately started questioning Kevin about the text, and we got into a heated exchange. He took a call during the middle of our argument and walked off, which only made me angry. Steve, who is also on the phone, follows him. My co-worker Miguel then approached me and told me that Kevin and Steve met on Grindr and had been dating each other for months. WTF!!! What am I supposed to do with this information? Does everyone at the job know? I feel so embarrassed. Steve and I have been sharing the same MAN! Should I quit my job? Kevin has a lot of explaining to do! How could he do this to me? I didn't see the signs. I'm so confused; I'm not sure what to do. Help!
