A distraught man has discovered his girlfriend of six years cheated on him after she accidentally sent him a message she was meant to send to her secret lover.
The unsuspecting boyfriend said he thought the couple were in a ‘happy’ relationship until he received the ‘wrong’ message that ended their six years together.
‘Everything was seemingly like an ordinary day at work, I was chatting to her about some stuff and out of nowhere she sends me screenshots of messages. F***ing thankfully I saw them before she deleted them,’ he wrote in a Reddit thread.
‘She wrongfully sent me messages she had with a guy who she is asking for a commitment.’

Clearly shocked by the messages, the man said he started having a panic attack.
‘I was holding back my anger and tears. I asked her ‘what the f*** was that?’ and asked why she was asking for a commitment – did she get pregnant or something? she says ‘no’,’ he said.
‘After that she had a Freudian slip and said ‘I broke the relationship off on August 31’.
‘I just exploded there, so many negative thoughts were flooding my head. I was shaking and felt really numb.’
Without questioning his relationship, the man said he dumped his girlfriend.
‘It has a been a day now and I haven’t gotten out of bed. I don’t know what to do. I have cut ties with her but she’s been trying to call me and message me but I blocked her off. A part of me wants to confront her. A part of me wants revenge,’ he said.
‘I am clueless with what I want to do from here on. I won’t lie, I’ve spent the whole day just numb and remembering the signs that I should have seen if I wasn’t so blind with love.’
Many urged the man to ‘move on’ because he’s better off starting a ‘new life’ without her after she broke his trust.
‘Don’t confront. She showed you her true colours and now comes the hardest part. That is to keep her blocked and not try to contact her,’ one wrote.
Another said: ‘Don’t confront her – your closure happened when you got those screenshots. Take time to grieve for your dead relationship… Please do not go back or give her a chance to explain herself because it will just be a barrage off excuses.’
While one added: ‘Now is not the time to be alone. Block her on everything. Don’t get sucked back in. You dodged a bullet. It’s much easier separating from a girlfriend than it is a wife.’
