Being cheated on is one of the most difficult things anyone could ever experience. This takes years to heal before you can trust and open up your heart to someone new again. Cheating often happens when someone is not able to be honest with their own feelings. Or, they’re a coward or can’t end the relationship in a healthy way. Sometimes, they’re going through a midlife crisis and believe some temporary fling will fulfill whatever they feel missing in their soul. But don’t worry. In the end, karma always finds a way to get them back. Sometimes, people are blindsided by their partner cheating, because they never see it coming. But the majority of the time, the signs are there that your partner is seeing someone else. On Reddit, people shared their personal stories of how their partner was caught cheating.
30. Ghosted and Robbed Blind
A Reddit user by the name of DocHoliday tells the tragic story of how his ex-girlfriend took everything he had, and then ghosted him. “Classic love at first sight. ‘I love you’ after 2 weeks, moved in together after 2 months, engaged after 6. We had been together for 4 years. Left my rent control bachelor pad and picked a bigger apartment so she could have her art studio. We really loved each other. As cliche as it sounds, we completed each other. She goes to ComiCon in NYC for work, and I helped her pack. I dropped her off at the airport. Everything was fine. No signs of anything. She should be back in 4 days, but she never came back home. Totally ghosted. I freak out that she may be dead, just to find myself blocked on everything: email, phone, social media.”
Everything I know is due to the unpaid bills she left behind. Found one particular NYC area code over and over on the call history. She met him on San Diego Comic Con a few months before and methodically put together a plan to abandon me while taking as much as she could to NYC. She maxed out credit cards to furnish their new home. It was too late for me to cancel everything. I had to log in and see all purchases made with my money for a house I will never live in. It was a good 6 months of blackout drunk, Tinder and overall self loathing. She took around $7,000, and this took me over a year of living paycheck to paycheck to get all balances to zero.
