7 Ways People Discovered That Their Partners Cheated On Them

April 22, 2020

Everyone knows someone who has been cheated on or someone who cheated. It’s almost the theme of many adult conversations. Let he who is without cheat or almost cheat cast a stone.

7 people shared how they found out that their partner was cheating on them.

Inside life.

I didn’t catch her. I just saw that someone else proposed to her and she said “yes.” I wan mad. The worst part was that my guys consoled me for only two days before they turned it to banter. Smh.

Mahn.

Her tab got spoilt so she gave it to me for repairs. I had to confirm that it was working after fixing it. So, I unlocked it to confirm. We had been dating for six years and we had a no “checking of phone” policy. I was curious so I went through her messages. The first thing I saw was “bring 4 condoms, I don’t want a repeat of the last time.” Bro, my heart cut. This is someone that said our relationship should be celibate. And for good six years, we only kissed. I felt taken on a ride.

What?

It was his birthday party and he told me to stay in the room. He said that his friends were checking me out too much and he didn’t like that. So, I had to stay out of sight. So, here I was in the room feeling flattered that I made my boyfriend jealous. That’s how some babe stormed into the room and started insulting me. Asking me to leave her boyfriend alone. That I am a husband snatcher. Gold digger. I was so confused.

It turns out that my “boyfriend” told her that I was a crazy stalker that wouldn’t leave him alone. And all his friends who I thought were my guys were in on the lie. Someone told her that I was at the party, so she came to tell me to leave her man alone.

After hearing that, I just packed my bag and left with the little dignity I had remaining. I cried from the party to my hostel.

Below the belt.

I beat my “guy” at FIFA and I was trolling him. Just light banter. That’s how he said that he is sleeping with my girlfriend and that’s the only win that really matters. I told him to take it back because I was ready to rush him.

Baba showed me sexts and I became calm immediately. Something actually died in me that day.

When I look back, he really won. I paid too much of a price for winning a stupid game.

Na wa oh.

She “mistakenly” sent me photos of them kissing. She now said, “oops, I guess the cat is out of the bag.” I blocked her life.

Tiki taka.

He told her I was his best friend. He told me she was his best friend. All of us worked in the same office and we even hung out together. We sha broke up because of religion. The babe and I still kept in touch because she’s really cool. We eventually became close friends.

One day, the babe texted me that she’s sorry blah blah, and started to confess. I was like huh? And she was like that she knew we were dating but still indulged him and whatnot. She said that since we had become good friends, it was only fair that she told me. Her conscience could not take it. I actually wished she had died of guilty conscience instead of telling me.

I called the boy to confront him and he said: “Did I catch him?” I was just weak.

Damn.

I was staying at his place for the weekend. I went to the store inside the compound to get provisions. I got talking with the shop owner. I told her I was spending the weekend with my boyfriend and she asked me to describe him. I did. She then blurted “Hmmm, the aunty wey him dey call him girlfriend yellow pass you.” I assured her that she was mistaken and thanked her.

A few weeks later, I surprised my boyfriend at home. Na so I jam Aunty yellow feeling all cozy on his legs. I felt so stupid. I just left quietly because surprise backfired on me.

The store owner kept giving me I told you so eye as I was leaving. Very annoying woman.
