"Dear Pulse,

My name is Pauline Tombra. I am the kind of lady you would call a daddy's girl because I have been close to my father since I was a little girl.

I love him so much as he has been my hero all my life. This does not mean that I love my mom less but we are not that super close.

My dad has always been a ladies man even going into his 50s and I have had to personally stave off some women but in the past two months, I have been in a dilemma over how to handle an issue that has been tearing my heart apart.

I have been out of Lagos for a while on my youth service and on my discharge, I decided to surprise dad and flew into Lagos without telling him.

I made straight to his office and in my usual boisterous self, zoomed into his office without knocking. And lo and behold, there was dad, almost naked and his also half nude secretary, Stephanie, making out on the couch.

The most disappointing thing is that Stephanie happens to be mum's best friend's daughter.

In my anger, I stormed out of the office and went straight home. My first instinct was to tell mum what I just saw but I knew doing so would definitely hurt her so much. Also, I could not stand to see my father suffer if their marriage breaks up.

Dad has tried to talk to me about the whole issue but I am still very angry at him. Everyone seems to know that there is a strain in our relationship and no matter how much they probe, I do not know how to break the bad news.

What do you think I should do in this situation because it is tearing me apart.

Pauline,

Accra."
