Finding out your significant other cheated on you is one of the worst feelings in the world.
You feel like your heart has been ripped out of your chest and thrown in the trash.
Let’s hear from folks on AskReddit about how they found out their partners were cheating on them.
Hold on tight!
1. Oh, man…
“My 16 yr old neighbor at the time came to sit by me and asked whats wrong?
I was upset about a certain financial situation my wife had gotten us into. So as I was going to explain my situation. Before I could speak she says is it because your wife slept with your brother..?
My heart immediately went to my throat and my stomach knotted up. I was in shock. not only did I have no clue but my 16 yr old neighbor was the one who had to break it to me.”
“Social Services called me to discuss my children’s safety.
Because my wife was going out with a registered ped**hile.
Needless to say, we’re no longer married.”
“I saw a text come through to her phone from one of my friends regarding what mattress she wanted.
Turns out that they had been out for the night drinking, got back to her house and tried to have s**. He was too d**nk and couldn’t get it up, so they gave up and fell asleep. He then proceeded to p**s the bed.
I always felt like that was karma at work.”
4. A bro moment.
“My wife wanted out of Los Angeles, so I got a job in Utah. She suggested I move, get a house set up, and she’d join in just a few weeks when her bank job would let her transfer.
A few weeks later, I’m back in California for a romantic weekend with her up in the mountains. She forgot her cell phone at work (the bank) and couldn’t go back for it. She kept using my mobile phone to check her voicemail remotely. Like obsessively. And she would then return calls to people from random phones (hotel, pay phone, etc) but not my mobile.
As I was sitting in the airport, preparing to fly back to Utah, thinking about how weird it all was, I decided to check her voicemail from my cell. She hadn’t deleted her recent messages. There was a voicemail from some guy asking if she was okay, and he was worried about her sick grandpa she went to visit, and that he loved her.
In a stroke of luck, he said he didn’t have good cell service at his friend’s house, so gave his friends number to call. I called. He said he was her boyfriend, I said I was her husband. I yelled at him. He yelled at me. Then I was like “dude, we’re both getting played.” We had a total bro moment. Then I filed divorce papers the next week.”
“One of my friends called me and said “yo I’m at the bar right now and your girl is here with some dude.”
The dude turned out to be my coworker.”
6. The new guy.
“Her little sister came up and asked if I’d met her boyfriend yet.
I was like “you know I’m her boyfriend, we’ve been dating for years” she said “no the NEW one”.
7. Uh oh.
“It’s so cute that that couple is holding hands walking down the street.
Hey that woman has the same Disney hat as my wife.
Hey that is my wife!
Turns kids away so they don’t see anything as she notices us and pushes her boyfriend into the alley….
Yeah, I saw them…”
8. The phone call.
“Got a call from her dad at 11pm asking if I knew who “Scott” was. I was a bit confused until he said “well my daughter’s with him at the movies right now, I’d recommend you give her a call”
Turns out she met him on Tinder, and had been seeing him for a couple months at that point before her Dad caught on. I always thought he didn’t like me, and maybe he didn’t, but I always appreciated him giving me the heads up.”
9. Dodged a bullet.
“Her parents had cameras all over the house. Her Dad played the video of her kissing and fondling another man in front of me and half her family.
I don’t think he liked me… Dodged a bullet, though.”
“Her best friend approached me at a child’s birthday party and told me that I didn’t deserve what was happening.
Completely confused, I asked what he was talking about. He then told me about how she had been seeing messing around with a co-worker and telling him about it.
I then had to hold my heart in my chest and my stomach in my abdomen while a group of children, including my two small daughters sang “Happy Birthday” and had a great time.”
“She received a whatsapp message in the middle of the night and the light from the notification was bothering me.
I just wanted to get rid of the notification when I saw it was a reply from a message she sent that said :” Good night my love <:3 ” … And the dude replied with a I love you …”
12. Not fun.
“I actually didn’t find out until nearly a year after we had broken up.
Met a girl at a party and we started talking about crazy exes, our stories sounded a bit too similar and i jokingly asked “did we date the same guy?”. Turns out yes we did, and at the same time.
We had already been together for two years before she got involved with him. That was a fun night.”
