There’s no end to the mental gymnastics people will engage in to make themselves feel better about something. This person decided that being unfaithful with their ex’s best friend wasn’t really a big deal because they never actually went on a date. Huh?
The worst part about this text message exchange was that the cheating ex was trying to make the person feel guilty for moving on … a month later ….Talk about gaslighting!
Love the Way You Lie
We’d be lying if we said Eminem and Rihanna’s hit “Love the Way You Lie” didn’t remind us of some less-than-honest exes, and apparently, we’re not the only ones. This person got a suspiciously sweet message from an ex and instantly knew something was up.
They must have fallen for this person’s lies one too many times and this time they decided to do something about it. We love how the person doesn’t even have to google the lyrics to this song as the name of the song says it all!
Cool Story Bro
When this person began with a sob story, we’re sure that they expected sympathy, not a suggestion to join a dating site! This ex thought that if they romanticized how good things used to be, their ex would want to get back together.
Thankfully, the ex didn’t fall for their story and savagely offered to pay for them to join a dating site. We’re not sure how long it’s been since their breakup, but we’re assuming the ex was correct in saying that it was time to move on!
Things That Should Not Be Group Activities
We understand that breaking up with someone is often difficult. Finding the right time, place, and way to phrase things can become very overwhelming. That said, there’s absolutely no reason why you should break up with someone in a GROUP CHAT.
Surely there could have been another way to end things without an entire audience, even if you’re under “so much pressure.” Although, we have to admit that we would've loved to be one of the other chat members watching the drama unfold...
This person must have wanted to see if their ex was awake, or maybe they even anticipated this text message exchange becoming flirty, when they decided to click “send.”
What they probably didn’t anticipate was that not only did their ex NOT appreciate their late-night text but that their ex would burn them with that reply. The awkward “oh cheers lol” makes it even more cringe-inducing!
