10 Crazy Stories About Cheaters and Their Partners
1. He was caught hooking up with his secretary at a golf course.
This Redditor’s friend worked at a golf course. During an outing, a woman showed up and wanted to surprise her husband and meet him on the course. “So my buddy looked up which hole he started on and then hopped in a cart and drove the woman out there.
“Rather than take the cart path all the way around the course, he did a shortcut through this area the maintenance staff uses. During the shortcut, they see a cart off in the woods, which just happens to have the [secretary giving head to the woman’s husband].”
2. He made a fake persona to catfish her.
He set up a fake profile for a guy named Matt Vanguard. “I set up a fake profile with a sizable library of handsome photos from some random guy I found online. Then I add enough info and friends to make it believable, then added her and started chatting her up on this fake account.”
Eventually, she set up a meeting with this fake guy. When the date was set, he stood her up and admitted Matt Vanguard was actually him then broke up with her.
3. She cheated with her son’s roommate.
“So my old roommate’s mom cheated on her husband (roommate’s dad). They had been together for 40 years and she [banged] some guy in her daughter’s bed while the whole family was downstairs at a party. No one found out but it was pretty [crappy] of her to do.”
And then a plot twist: “I was the guy she cheated with.”
4. He faked a road trip and left her in the gas station.
This guy found out he was cheated and couldn’t help but exact revenge. “Planned a road trip as a way for us to heal. Drove until the tank was empty and pulled into a gas station. She grabbed her purse and went to the bathroom.” He then put some gas in and turned around to go home.
5. She covered his car in tampons.
This Reddit user gave the following advice after finding out her boyfriend was cheating: “Attack his car with pads and tampons. Unused, of course. Don’t stick the pads to the paint because that will really mess it up. You don’t want to do any real damage. Tie tampons to door handles, windshield wipers, and mirrors. Find places to hide them where they won’t be found for a while. Pads stick well to windows. Guys will apparently freak out if you use a blue marker on them. I don’t know what they think periods are, but the one time I’ve done this, they thought they had been used. Because they were blue. If you’re lucky, it will rain right after you do it (so everything expands) and he’ll return with his new gal pal and be so freaked out that he makes her clear off the car.”
6. She stole her daughter’s boyfriend.
This Redditor’s cousin had it hard. “She walked in someone [getting with] her boyfriend. Bad enough. The other woman was her mother (my Aunty). After that, my poor cousin went off the deep end and ended up an… addict. She is okay now, though, considering.”
7. She cheated on him with an entire family.
The Redditor knew this girl once. “She gets married to my buddy right after graduating HS. He joins the military, goes off for training, she starts [messing] around on him with this one guy. Then, she breaks it off with the guy she was [messing] around with to start [messing] around some more with his older brother.
This was all during his buddy was still getting trained in the military, “making bank all the while (and she’s spending it as fast as he can earn it). She stops [messing] around with the older brother, steps up to their father! Now she’s [getting it on] the father, he talks her into becoming a [dancer] at the bar he worked at, and she gets up on stage for all of us to see. Some nights, he brought her and other girls home for [good] times. All the while married to my buddy, who dropped her…. finally as soon as he came home.”
8. He asked for her family’s help to go with him and surprise her on her birthday.
“I had a feeling she was cheating as she set off a lot of red flags. . . . After asking her what she wanted to do on her birthday this year she rather insisted on me going out of town with my friends as she just had to work anyways and didn’t want to be reminded she was aging. . . . I leave and go to my friend’s house pretending like I am going out of town.
“While there I call up her mother, father, sister, and several of her friends. I tell them how I want to give her a big surprise by sneaking into her room with party streamers, kazoos and a big cake with candles. . . . I had everyone meet me outside our apartment at 8:30 in the morning. . . . We all sneak in and make our way down the hall towards the bedroom. Each holding a kazoo and her mom holding the cake grinning from ear to ear. . . . And there was my wife staring at us wide-eyed, getting pounded hard by her lover. Mom drops the cake, sister screams, the father begins to shout. I pretend like I’m horrified to which her friends try to push everyone out while yelling at her. My wife, excuse me, the ex-wife is sobbing and screaming how could I while the lover is desperately trying to puthis pants on while running out of the place.”
9. The victims became best friends.
This Redditor already had suspicions for a couple months, but he still had no evidence or anything until . . . “My ex lived about 40 miles from me, and we were 18. Dated and went to high school together for 3 years. She would come down into the city on weekends to spend time with me. I knew she had another group of friends in her town and a few were guys which didnt bother me. But, I woke up in the middle of the night and messaged her on facebook, only to notice she had been tagged in a photo with one her friends. He was holding her up and kissing her. It was his new profile picture. I messaged the guy and calmly asked what was going on. He immediately responded and was confused. We decided to meet up for coffee the next morning that my ex was over. And the look on her face was priceless when she saw him walk in and sit beside me. She begged for our forgiveness and claimed she loved us both. Turned out it had been going on for 7 months. And that everytime she left my place during the weekends she was returning home to him for the week. Me and the other guy are now best friends and share a house with my fiancee and his girlfriend. F*** You Taylor.”
10. He accidentally projects photos of his naked wife and her lover on the projector screen during a business meeting.
Finding out you’ve been cheated on as a roomful of people watch the horror unfold—or even worse, a meeting room full of work colleagues—is the kind of excruciating experience from which you’d never quite recover. “He loaded an SD card with a scanned project file on it,” this Redditor recalls. “He put it into the conference room PC and we were treated to naked pics of his wife with another guy. We were just stunned. This was in a senior budgetary meeting with the outside accountants and auditors.
“He was sitting right there and we were looking at his wife and another guy going at it. I reached over and shut the projector off. nobody said anything.
“He got up, walked out, drove off and left his phone and laptop sitting on the table. He wound up driving to his parents’ house three states away. He was gone for a week.”
Is Your Partner Cheating?
If David H. Petraeus couldn’t keep his affair secret even as director of the Central Intelligence Agency, how can the average cheater not mess up? Product reviews from real people have shown time and again that GPS trackers have caught cheaters in the act. GPS trackers are small enough to fit onto the palm of your hand and hide anywhere. There are many different kinds, but they all perform the same basic function. The difference from there is what and how many features you need.
Tracking technologies are relatively new, so the legality of their use may vary by state. Even federal courts are still split on how to handle this issue. For starters, it’s entirely legal to spy someone if they’re using any vehicle or asset you own. On the other hand, it’s only illegal if you are not the owner of the car and do not have consent to track it.
