Woman Befriends Cheating Ex’s ‘Other Woman’ to Piss Him off and Serves up the Best Revenge Ever
They say the ultimate revenge is living your best life, and this woman has proven that to be true many times over.
Sharing her story online, the woman explained that she found out that her boyfriend had another secret girlfriend that he had been cosying up to. Despite her heartbreaking discovery, she opted to contact the other woman in a move that most would agree was rather unusual given the circumstances.
Instead, it turned out to be one of the best decisions she had ever made, as she explained on Reddit’s Petty Revenge sub.
“In my early 20s, I lived with my ex-boyfriend,” she began. “I was gullible and believed every word that came out of his mouth. I believed him when he said he worked late hours and came back at 4am and made up excuses to keep me from meeting his friends and family and let him isolate me and hide me away.
“Well, one day his grandmother passes away from natural causes (this is pre covid) and he was devastated so I asked if he wanted company or to be left alone to grieve.
“He of course wanted to go alone and so, I let him.”
Naturally, everyone grieves in their own way so giving her boyfriend the space to do so on his terms was absolutely the right thing to do. But this anonymous woman was not prepared for what was to come next.
“I got a call from someone who knew both me and my ex informing me that he did, in fact, take his girlfriend to the funeral but that person was not me.
“She had been introduced to his family, taken on date after date, and he had played Dad to her one year old.
“My heart sunk right to my feet that day and so did hers once she found out about me.”
Oh dear, not a good situation to find yourself in. How devastating! Often our first thoughts are to demonise ‘the other woman’, but our heartbroken heroine had other ideas.
“My friend got us in contact and we talked for hours. We laughed, cried and in the end decided to dump that man and be friends.
“He absolutely hated it. We became extremely close after that. I took her to her 21st and drunk-sat her after she got sick all over me and we took each other on a “date” and even to a concert that her family got tickets for. To this day, I have her in my phone as “the wife” even though we are both married to wonderful men.”
As always, the real gold was found in the comments below, when a Redditor succinctly asked what of the fate of the cheater:
“Aww, that ending is actually really sweet. What ended up happening to Fuckface McGoo??”
The answer had us giggling with delight!
“My ex? He’s in prison lmao”
Sucks to suck, man!
