The social media users on Reddit had talked about the revenge stories they had over the cheating experiences they had, or the stories they heard.
A Redditor named u/tkcool73 had shared; “This is what my dad did. My mom cheated on him with the dad of a family she was a nanny for. In the divorce she got half his pension and primary custody of my brother and I. Then she spent the next decade telling us a story that they split because my dad was too cheap about money and it led to too many arguments.
Despite all of that he ending up remarrying with an old flame from high school who owns a lucrative heating and air business that allows them to live quite comfortably, they bought a big plot of land in the countryside and started a horse and cattle farm like he always wanted. Now he’s happier than I’ve ever seen him.
My mom still doesn’t know that I know all of this, and I go back and forth about confronting her on it.”
Another Reddit user, u/Own-Text7602 had shared a story as, “My wife left after I had a health issue so she could enjoy her life. I recovered, joined a gym, joined a whip dancing club and got out with friends at least four nights a week, took my grown kids out fishing on the weekends. Dated some but more importantly made a lot of lady friends that really helped raise my self worth. 11 years later I married a fantastic woman who makes my life wonderful. We’ve been together for almost 30 years now and she told me she owes my ex a debt of gratitude for making me available. My ex quickly married a bar hookup who refused to work and she had to support them both. She’s still unhappy with her life. So as far as I’m concerned the best revenge is to forget they even exist and enjoy your life.”
The next Redditor, u/ThisTimeJust30rock had commented, “So when I was in my 20s I was with this girl I really really cared about. Thought it was really going to last forever. Beautiful, sweet, smart, independent. I mean i got a real sense she wanted to be with me and not needed to be with someone. Made me feel great. I one day caught her fucking another dude. I was absolutely devastated. But instead of yelling, screaming and acting violent or angry I just said “oh shit. Sorry” and left.
Never picked up the phone. Again. Never went to “get my stuff” or any other nonsense. Just cut her off. She called and left voice-mails and texted me. They started out as “you have to let me explain” to “please give me another chance” to “the fact that you showed no emotion or anything and have just cut me off shows you never cared about me anyway” eventually she said she hated me and was glad she did it. Then she would apologize and say “please talk to me” it was pretty obvious that my reaction was eating her up inside. It hurt, but you move on. It’s fine. In the end she wasn’t the right one. I’m happily married with 2 kids and 2 dogs and a house now. Life is full of ups and downs. Don’t let them define you.”
A user with deleted Reddit account had shared, “An ex-gf about 10 years ago *emailed me* to say it wasn’t working out and that she had met the “unconditional love of her life” (something she told me I was lol). So, needless to say, I was a bit hurt, but not much I could do about it. I chewed on it for a while and got really pissed off the more I thought about it.
I eventually moved on with life, and basically forgot about her entirely — like pushed so far out of my mind and memories that I legit never thought about her at all. I ended up running into her several years afterwards working at a hotel reception desk and straight up didn’t even notice her. She was acting a little bitchy and I didn’t know why and chalked it up to her having a rough day or something. Got my key and got settled in my room. The next morning I was coming out to get ready to head to work and was in the lounge area where they have the waffles and shit and she taps me on the shoulder (I assume she worked all night) and proceeds to challenge me. And I’m like “whoa, whoa, whoa! If I did something to offend you, I’m so sorry, but who the fuck are you?” (or something to this effect). And then she said “I’m so glad I married _________ and not you, you’re such a piece of shit.” And then i was like “ohhhhhhhhh, OHHHHHHHH!” as the light finally came on.
She looked like she was very miserable in life, and that made me very, very, very happy. She was a real tool. Looking back on it, I am kind of proud of myself that I managed to completely move on with my life that I didn’t even remember what she looked like. LOL I am amazed that she expected me to dwell on her as if she was the greatest thing that ever happened to me and that I lost her…like it seems she almost expected me to dwell on it for YEARS and be depressed about it.
As if that wasn’t enough, I met a woman in Germany who is like the female version of me. It’s pretty awesome. Funny how life works out when you just go with the flow, eh?”
Another user, bobdig986 had commented their story as, “I moved very far away from my home and friends to a place, so my wife could have horses. It was Just not financially feasible where we were. I did manage to find a pretty good paying job after a year of being there. Downside, it was night shift. After a while I noticed that she was becoming distant. She no longer wanted to have sex with me or spend off time together. I was disturbed to say the least, but chalked it up to a rough patch that we needed to work through. Long story short, she was having an affair. I found out later that when I left for work, her boyfriend came in for the night. Thanks neighbors, you could have told me sooner.
Anyway, we did get divorced. She insisted. I was still stupidly trying to make it work. I moved out. The boyfriend moved in and parked his Corvette in front of my house. But, I have to say I had no part in the ultimate revenge, it was karma. They were traveling on the very narrow and winding road that led to our country house, and they collided at high speed with another vehicle. The boyfriend spun the car, so the passenger side took the full force of the impact.
Nice guy, he barely got a scratch. She was severely injured and was in the hospital with multiple broken bones and other injuries for weeks. Never wished her any harm or even tried to get revenge of any kind, but she did this to herself. BTW, the boyfriend dumped her and moved to another state to avoid her lawsuit. Karma is a bitch.”
The next user, 1Leviosa had shared under the post as, “The night I found out he was cheating I was so angry I took screenshots of everything and posted them on his social media. I’m not gonna lie, it felt good. Everyone knew what he did and what he was but he still made excuses and called me crazy. Most of his friends believed him because they were his friends and I was just a crazy girlfriend. I know what i did was petty but I don’t regret it. However, as others have said in the comments, I know that the best revenge is moving on with your life and not caring at all about the other person.”
The Redditor, waveswaveswaves had shared, “I worked doing silver service at wedding venues and a married couple were renewing their vows. Hours past, everything going great until the wedding cake came out. The cake had a mountain top snow scene with two figurines donned in ski gear embracing on the top with another figurine in a 4×4 with a smoke on and sunglasses at the bottom driving into the sunset. It was a masterpiece.
You could see the bride study the cake and wonder. There was a noticeable change in he demeanour. Then came the speeches where the husband announced to all that he found out about her fuckin about with her ski instructor and that he was filing for divorce and she is on her arse. It was incredible but pretty sick.”
