A 45-year-old woman has shared how she was left heartbroken after discovering what her boyfriend of 15 months had been up to on social media.
Posting on Netmums, she explained that things had been great and her boyfriend made her feel like his universe.
“I thought I had hit the jackpot when I met him as he seemed so different,” she went on.
But her world turned upside down when she made a heartbreaking discovery on social media.
“In April I found out he had been sending flirty messages to a woman he has on his instagram who is from Italy,” she said.
“He shares a lot of photography on his Instagram so has a lot of followers from all over the world. This woman uploads photos of herself and he had been commenting back on them saying how s*xy and delicious she is followed with flaming hot emojis (sic) etc.
“I felt like my heart had been ripped out when I seen (sic) these. The comment had been going on before I met him. And to know he had been messaging someone else commenting on them like this through all the great times we shared made me feel sick.”
The woman said that she confronted her boyfriend and he apologized. He also deactivated his Instagram account.
“I don’t know what to do anymore as I love him and thought I could get over this and forget and things would get better but my trust has gone,” she added.
Many Mumsnet users shared their thoughts on the situation, with one commenting: “My honest opinion is: most men cheat. Even when they don’t do it physically, they do it in their heads all the time. Men reading this will say I’m being unfair, that not all men are like that, or that women are just as bad.
“But I genuinely believe that the term ‘faithful’ means something completely different to MOST men than to MOST women.”
