Do you imagine a situation where your girlfriend cheats on you and you catch her red-handed? Is it even possible to deal with it in any way? Most people would just smash the other dude’s face or just panic and run away.
A 25-year-old Josh Gilbert from San Diego, California has proven that it is actually possible to dodge a bullet when he decided to show the world pictures of his girlfriend caught in bed with another man.
“I would never expect something like this from her, I thought she loved me” – said Josh. He also thought she would appreciate the fact he offered her to move in, without even paying part of the rent. She wasn’t earning much and he could afford to support her financially.
Catching your beloved on cheating is a huge blow. You start asking yourself questions: Why? What did I do wrong? It leaves you emotionally devastated and makes you feel like your whole fell apart. Josh was actually planning to propose soon, so you can only imagine his dissapoinment when he saw what his girlfriend was capable of.
When Josh’s work trip to LA has been canceled, he decided to surprise his girlfriend and come home earlier than expected. He was very excited to see her again, but all those positive feelings disappeared the moment he saw her in bed next to a naked man. “I was completely shocked, I couldn’t make a move.” – said Josh.
“I opened my bedroom door and was completely shocked. They were both sleeping naked in our bed, didn’t even wake up when I entered and said: SURPRISE. The room smelled alcohol and cigarettes. I could even see the parts of her underwear scattered around the floor. Those black panties, she got it from me as her birthday gift. Nice move…”
Well, it was quite a surprise, but clearly, it was Josh who was astonished in the end…
He left their bedroom and started to think: “What am I supposed to do now? Wake them up and kick them both out of my apartment? Or maybe just pull this dude out of my bed and kick his a**?”
Josh was still trying to defend his girlfriend, even after what she’s done to him. “Maybe it’s also my fault, I was all the time at work, maybe she just got too drunk and made a mistake?” – says Josh. But that shouldn’t be an excuse! Even if you are drunk, you should control yourself. Sometimes he had too many drinks on a night out with his buddies, but even if there was a bombshell standing just next to him, he wouldn’t even talk to her. Josh was a loyal and devoted boyfriend. He loved his GF and there was nothing that he could do behind her back. He expected the same from her…
Josh was standing in his bedroom, staring at the miserable pair and suddenly a crazy idea of revenge popped up in his head. He grabbed his phone and took pictures of his girlfriend sleeping next to a naked guy.
“I will make her remember what she’s done” – he thought. It didn’t take long for him to post all of them on Facebook, including a selfie he took with both of them knocked out in the background saying: “It’s been two years we are together, I came home early to make her a surprise, here is what she prepared for me”
“I guess her mom won’t be happy to see her daugher in action.”
Josh suddenly felt relieved. He also realized that there must have been something happening behind his back for a long time. All her girls’ nights out, weekend business trips. With all the respect, but who is sending a waitress for a business trip, for the whole weekend?! It was an eye-opener. All of this was just a cover-up, she’s been clearly messing around while he was away. That’s definitely not what he expected to discover after coming back home earlier to surprise her. And after everything he’s done for her.
Unsurprisingly, his pictures immediately reached thousands of people around the world, who started to comment on his reaction. Most of them congratulated him for keeping a stiff upper lip after what he saw. A few girls contacted him, offering to go for a drink. Some of them were actually hot.
There was also a guy who invited Josh to his town and go for a crazy night together, to meet some girls and make it easier to forget about what happened. he was surprised how nice people were to him. He would rather expect hate and criticism after how he humiliated his ex publicly. He answered all the comments: “From now on, my life will be better off without her. Revenge is sweet.”
Later on, he came back on Facebook to thank all the people who supported him through this rough time. He believes his story can be a good lesson for many people who found themselves in a similar situation. Now he is smarter and will never do the same mistake again. “When your partner starts to hide her/his phone from you and tells you unclear stories about how she/he spent the evening, it’s a signal that something is happening. Don’t ignore that. Be careful and react immediately – you don’t want to find yourself in a situation as like mine.”
He wrote: “You all made me realize world ain’t as bad as I thought. Thank you so much for that.” It wasn’t easy, but Josh finally recovered. He understood his mistakes and promised to himself he won’t be so naive anymore. Love is one thing but being blind and fooled is another. Now he is ready for someone new, who will appreciate him. Even though at the beginning he was still blaming himself, now he knows it was just a wrong woman he chose.
By the way, one of those girls who invited him for a drink, cooked him a dinner recently, and a breakfast the next morning…
