VEGEANCE IS SWEET: One woman reveals how she punished her partner for cheating
Ghosting is generally considered to be one of the cruellest dating trends – but one woman is being praised for giving her boyfriend the silent treatment.
The Redditor revealed how she came up with the best way to get sweet revenge.
After she shared her story, she was branded a “hero” by internet users.
The anonymous woman claimed that she decided to ditch her boyfriend of five years after catching him cheating.
She remembered: “I came over to his house one morning to surprise him with breakfast and a video game he wanted, only to find him naked, asleep, and with his ex curled up in his arms.
“He didn’t hear me come in, so I closed his bedroom door, and left his breakfast and game on the kitchen counter along with my key to his house.”
After making the horrifying discovery, the woman vowed to cut him out of her life.
Not only did she refuse to speak to the love-rat, she also completely vanished out of sight.
She explained: “I completely removed myself from him and didn’t offer a shred of explanation or opportunity for dialogue.
“I disappeared from his life after his betrayal and I think it’ll not only help me to focus on myself without his presence, but I think completely shutting myself off from him will hurt worse than anything when he thinks on how good he had it with me these last 5 years.”
Since the woman shared her story yesterday, her post as racked up more than 66,000 upvotes.
Hundreds of Reddit users praised her for taking a stand against her unfaithful partner.
One said: “That’s a really calm way to do it.
“You saved yourself the begging and apologies and potentially going through it all again. Well done, plenty of fish in the sea.”
Another added: “Good for you. Most people don’t have your strength. The best revenge is to move on and be happy. Screw that guy.”
Despite this, not everyone was convinced that the payback would’ve been that successful.
A commenter remarked: “Well, considering he was cheating, she clearly didn’t mean that much to him.”
A second agreed: ”If he’s screwing his ex on the side then he’s probably not really that invested in the relationship anyway.
“He gets a free game and avoids an awkward conversation, and she gets a fresh start away from a guy who would happily cheat on her. It’s win-win tbh.”
