A man was left devastated after he drove 13 long hours to see his girlfriend only to find her sleeping with someone else.
The unnamed man took to Reddit and explained that he first met his girlfriend when they were kids. They didn’t see each other often as he’s from Kentucky and she lived in Minnesota.
Their relationship blossomed 20 years later, when the man moved to Minnesota for his work.
“This all happened this morning, but some back story first (to explain). I grew up in Kentucky and would spend summers in Minnesota with a parent. One summer, when I was 12, I met (my now-girlfriend) and we clicked instantly,” he wrote.
“We started dating at 13 but life would always take me back to Kentucky so it has always been an off and on thing,” he continued.
“In the past year and a half, my life has completely flipped. I finished a huge milestone in my career that allows me to work essentially where and when I want. After all this, I started talking (to my girlfriend) daily again and getting close, so I took a job call in Minnesota and we spend all of our free time together.
“Things were going well and we had been talking about building a life together, with her saying that’s all she has ever wanted and it finally makes sense for both of us.”
The man said he went back to Kentucky for his aunt’s birthday and a family fishing trip but during his vacation, he decided to drive 13 hours back to Minnesota to surprise his girlfriend for her birthday.
“I have a few days to spare between the party and the trip, so after the party, I drove 13 hours straight to Minnesota to surprise my girlfriend before work. When I finally arrived completely exhausted I walked into her bedroom and turned on the light to see her ex-boyfriend lying asleep next to her in his boxers and no shirt,” he went on.
“I then had to drive another hour and a half to a family member’s house before sleeping the day away. Now I’m sitting here in Wisconsin trying to process all this and have a 12-hour drive back to Kentucky to look forward to.”
The man said he is still unsure how to handle the situation but people on Reddit were quick to reassure him that it is good to find out about it early.
“Sorry bud, that’s rough. Better to have found out now rather than later. I know that doesn’t help your feelings right now, but look for those silver linings,” one person wrote.
“That’s awful, and I really feel for you. One take-away, one that you will realize one day after it stops hurting so much, is that you found out now rather than later. If you had committed yourself to her and found this afterwards, I think it’d be a lot worse,” another added.
