Woman busts cheater after noticing another woman’s reflection in photo

A 26-year-old woman busted a man she was dating for cheating — by paying close attention to a reflection in a photo he sent her.

Kayla Paeth, who lives near Chicago, has gone viral on TikTok for sharing the Snapchat photo sent to her by a man she was involved with.

Kayla quickly noticed something suspicious about the photo: Based on a reflection in a shiny surface, he appeared to be standing next to another woman.

‘Geta a snap from a man I’m talking to,’ Kayla wrote at the beginning of her video, which has been viewed 840,000 times.

The image shows a stove with two burners going, one browning ground beef and the other cooking pasta in a skillet.

The man appears to have sent the photo to show Kayla that he was staying home for dinner that night. 

‘Haha you ain’t lyin, I couldn’t eat out another night in a row,’ he wrote. 

But while the man may have in fact been at home, he wasn’t alone. Kayla zoomed in on a shiny surface behind the stove, which reflected the hands of another person holding a phone.

Examining the hands, it was clear to Kayla that these didn’t belong to the man she was dating — but another woman.

She pointed out what look like long white acrylic nails, bracelets in one wrist, a ring, and what she deduced to be a rose gold Apple watch.

Cringe: Kayla revealed in a comment that when she confronted the man and asked who the other woman was, he tried to be smooth, telling her, 'should've been you'

‘Gots to do better my guy lmao,’ Kayla wrote.

Fortunately, Kayla doesn’t seem to be too cut up about the man’s dating activity, and as she didn’t call him her boyfriend, they may not have even been exclusive.

She also revealed in a comment that when she  confronted the man and asked who the other woman was, he tried to be smooth, telling her, ‘should’ve been you.’

Commenters are in agreement that the man should be treating her — and the other woman — better.

‘Please let that girl know. I would be so upset if I cooked for someone else and then he sent it to someone,’ wrote one commenter. 

‘Not him snapping you while she’s RIGHT there,’ wrote another.

Several other commenters even shared their own stories of finding out a man was cheating due to a reflection in a photo.

Kayla is one of many women to go viral on TikTok for using a reflection to expose a man behaving badly.

Earlier this year TikTok user @ppidhebwklwosjwpqlqmbdb recorded a man scrolling through Bumble while out on a date with her — through the reflection in his glasses.

‘I wish I was kidding,’ the 23-year-old American captioned the video.

The video begins on her unamused-looking face in what appears to be a restaurant. She then flips the screen to show her date, a mustached man in a black hoodie and glasses.

He is looking down at his phone, which already would be a no-no for some people on a date — but when the woman zooms in on his glasses, it shows a reflection of what’s on his screen: Bumble.

The man cluelessly swipes through the dating app, seemingly unaware that he’s been caught out.

While plenty of TikTok users like to make up content for likes and views, this woman swore that this was a genuine experience. 

Whoops! Sydney Kinsch revealed how her relationship ended in a viral TikTok video last year, showing the selfie her boyfriend of four years sent her on Snapchat

Whoops! Sydney Kinsch revealed how her relationship ended in a viral TikTok video last year, showing the selfie her boyfriend of four years sent her on Snapchat

In November, Sydney Kinsch shared a selfie that her (presumably) now-ex-boyfriend sent her via Snapchat.

Before hitting ‘send,’ the two-timing dunce apparently failed to notice the reflection in his sunglasses, which showed another woman’s legs lounging in the car next to him — but Sydney certainly didn’t miss it. 

‘That one time my boyfriend of 4 years snapchatted me him cheating on me,’ Sydney wrote in the video.

The short clip shows her standing in front of the selfie, covering half of her ex’s face.

In the image, he is in a car wearing black sunglasses, and in the frame that’s visible, his arm on the steering wheel is reflected back at the camera — which is concerning enough, as the young man appears to have taken the photo of himself while driving.

But Sydney then shifts to the other side of the picture, revealing the other lens. And there, the reflection is also quite clear: a woman’s bear legs, propped up on the inside of the car with her feet out the window.

‘Check the reflection in your boyfriend’s sunnies ladies,’ Sydney captioned the clip. 

Not so smart! The man didn't realize that the woman sitting comfortably in the car next to him was reflected in his sunglasses

In the comments section, she went on to share more details, revealing that things got even worse after she got the photo.

‘I called him and asked if he realized he sent me a b***h in his Snapchat and he had no idea’ she wrote. ‘So I sent it to him and he called me crazy and that it was our friend’s gf and [that] he’s allowed to have friends.’

She later learned that he as been seeing at least five other women on the side in the past month alone. 

‘Guys always thinking they can pull a fast one on us,’ wrote one horrified commenter.

‘Don’t know why he’s got the sunnies on, he’s not that bright,’ said another,
