21 People Confess The Moment They Knew Their SO Wasn’t “The One”


I found texts in his phone telling a girl how much she meant to him and how beautiful she was. When I confronted him he told me she was a single mom with an abusive ex who needed encouragement. I let it go. Then i found out they had exchanged nudes and slept together just before we started dating. I put my foot down and told him either his relationship with me or with her. He kept talking to her and lied about it, even saw her in person and lied about it. But the worst part is I didn’t bail for another 4 months.


When she came home drunk after a night out with friends claiming I wasn’t texting her enough even though a review of our text thread showed I responded to every text in a timely manner. Not a big deal by itself, but it was a straw that broke the camel’s back sort of situation.


I was relieved when she cancelled our plans together, and realized I’d rather have an evening on my own.


When she chose alcohol over our relationship.
