Cheating is the topic on the tip of everyone’s tongues today (what’s up, Arnold?). But, what happens when you’re the other woman…and you don’t even know it? Yep, turns out you can be a homewrecker without being a malicious maneater. One Staffer shares how she unknowingly became part of a cheating scandal.
“I had been seeing this guy for a few weeks and it wasn’t anything serious—a few texts here and there and meet-ups, usually at night. In retrospect, the whole seeing-each-other-only-after-dark thing should’ve tipped me off. But since I’d just gotten out of a super-intense (read: dramatic) relationship, I decided that this was a fling and I was going to go with the flow.
One night, I met him out and we went back to his place. Things got a little, um, rated R from there. Suddenly, the door opened and in walked a woman who I had never seen before in my life—all while we’re in the midst of more than making out. A heated argument ensued: Random woman claimed to be the guy I was hooking up with’s GF. ‘How could you? I drove you to work this morning,’ she hissed. ‘We’ve been broken up for two years,’ the guy shot back. Oh, and did I mention that the woman starting slapping the man—all while I was standing in the corner, sans clothes?
After a few minutes of profanity and arguing (she believed they were in a relationship, he claimed this was false), I piped up with an, ‘Excuse me! I need to get my clothing!’ Fighting (non?) couple looked up and after confused (ex?) GF hurled a few insults my way, I escaped and called for a ride. Save for the apology and the quasi-explanation that the chick was ‘an evil ex,’ I never saw him or heard from him again. I wonder if they ever settled their (insane) relationship issues.”
