Secret sexting

I have a wonderful boyfriend, we've been together nearly 4 years.I love him dearly, but I feel like I did something awful.Shortly after my birthday I met somebody "else" and started talking to this person regularly.We flirted and toyed with the idea of being together, even though both of us have significant others.He sent me some risque photos and I did the same in return.Nothing too revealing but I still feel awful about it.About a week ago I told the other person that I couldn't continue with the flirting and talking romantically and since my relationship with my boyfriend is better than ever.However I have this secret that I never intend on telling him not to mention the picture floating around in so and so's phone.Is there any way to make this guilt go away? I can't stomach it.I never physically did anything with this other person but I still feel so dreadfully awful about that god forsaken text message I sent.

Dont tell him, it will make your relationship so much worse cas he wont trust you.
If the other guy is decent enough then your bf will never find out. You havnt cheated on him, you just got a little bit carried away with this new guy.
I would only tell him if you felt the need to keep talking to this other guy and if you wanted to be with him.
But you clearly love you bf, and have done the sensible thing and stopped talking in that way with the other guy. So from this point on your not doing anything wrong.
Even if you tell your bf and he stays with you, your only causing him pain, cas he will feel like hes not satisfying you enough in your relationship and that you have to look at other guys.

I agree dont tell him. It will only make him feel terrible and what if he leaves you? Then you will feel terrible. Tell one of your bffs and that might make you feel better. Or write an apology letter and tear it up. Telling him will only make him think you dont love him and that you betrayed him.

You feel guilty because you did do something wrong. You sent pics and flirted and talked about a relationship with another guy. I think that's pretty much cheating on someone. You should grow a pair and tell your boyfriend. If he forgives you, he forgives you but you can't deny that if he dumped you it wouldn't be a bad thing because he has every right to do so for what you have done.

well you could let the guilt eat you alive or you could be mature about everything and just tell him. He might be insecure for a while, yeah, but he'll also realize that he can trust you to be loyal to the truth. Keep things simple.

I would not tell him anything about the photos, he won't trust you anymore. If you tell him, he will always be on a lookout for signs of betrayal.
