Miss Manners: I keep letting my girlfriend make the same mistake. Should I feel guilty?


DEAR MISS MANNERS: I have been with my girlfriend for a little over two years. We are madly in love, respect each other and communicate well; basically, we both seem to have hit the relationship jackpot.

However, there is one thing I am hiding from her, and I’m not sure if I should feel guilty or even reveal it.

Now and then, we play a simple, low-stakes card game. At the start of each turn, you can remove cards from a discard pile, but doing so is always a mistake, as you lose the opportunity to get cards you may need to win.

Since my girlfriend doesn’t like her pile being “messy,” she always takes from the discard pile. It doesn’t appear that she realizes that this is a losing strategy.

I’ve thought about pointing it out, but we are each other’s only competition, so why would I divulge strategies? For love reasons? I’m in it to win it.
