A young woman has asked the internet for advice after discovering that her long-time boyfriend has been cheating on her.
The lady in question took to Reddit to explain that her partner of four years cheated on her in the past. And despite vowing to never do so again, the man now once again betrayed her trust.
According to the poster, she has since her discovery been tempted to get back at her boyfriend by exposing his text messages with another woman in front of his family on Christmas.
“Just recently I found out he was cheating on me, it has happened once before in the past and he swore up and down that it will never happen again but here we are in the same situation,” she wrote.
“We have been doing Christmas in my parents’ house every year but this year he was really adamant about having it at his parents’ house this year, after a little bit of back and forth I gave in and decided to go to his parents’ house this year.
“I bought him concert tickets for an artist that I don’t really like but I wanted us to spend time as a couple on something that he really likes. I was going to surprise him with the tickets for Christmas but now that I know he has been cheating on me I was planning on including screenshots of him cheating on me as a present too for him to open it in front of his family.”
The woman went on to ask the readers if she would be the a**hole is she went through with her plan for a sweet revenge.
And while the majority of people sympathized with the young lady, most of the readers urged her to avoid such a confrontation because it would also ruin not only her Christmas day but also her and his parents’ holidays.
“Don’t waste 12 more days of your life and miss out on Christmas with your family. Break up, send his parents a text letting them know why you are not coming for Christmas. Keep your tickets and sell them or invite someone else and send ex a 10 second video from the concert if you like,” the top comment read.
“That would cause a lot of stress for people who didn’t do anything wrong (unless you know for sure they were all involved somehow),” another suggested.
“What I’d do instead is, without warning him, call his parents, thank them for the invitation, and explain that you’d like to see them for Christmas but feel it would be too awkward since the relationship has ended due to him cheating again.”
