I never thought this would happen to me. In a matter of seconds, my entire world came crashing down around me. I had been with my boyfriend for four years and I thought things were great.
We were planning to move in together and I naively thought that we were on the same page. Turns out, I was wrong. Dead wrong.
It all started one night when I was browsing through his phone. I know, I know, it’s wrong to snoop, but I just had this feeling that something wasn’t quite right.
As I was looking through his apps, I decided to go to the Grab app to check if he has been going anywhere without my knowledge.
That’s when I saw it. He had been taking Grab rides to a certain address multiple times a week. I recognized the address as belonging to a woman who was from his Secondary school clique.
The timings that he took Grab to her place was always in the wee hours or whenever I am not free.
They have not really been in touch for a while but recently he has been meeting her for quite a bit.
I felt my stomach drop and I knew immediately what was going on.
My boyfriend was cheating on me.
I was heartbroken. I was devastated. I didn’t know what to do or how to process the information. I wanted to confront him but at the same time, I didn’t want to believe it.
I was in a state of shock and disbelief. I knew I had to act fast so I decided to confront him about it.
I immediately woke him up to clarify the matter and asked him about what I saw on his Grab app. I told him what I had found out and asked him to be honest with me.
He tried to deny it at first but eventually he broke down and admitted that he had been seeing someone else. He apologized and begged me to forgive him, but I just couldn’t. I was too hurt and angry.
I ended the relationship right then and there and told him to leave. I knew the relationship was over and that I would never be able to trust him again. I was so angry and frustrated that he had betrayed my trust. I had been so naive and gullible and he had taken advantage of that.
All of this happened because of one little ride-sharing app. I never would have found out if it weren’t for Grab saving addresses of all your recent trips.
It’s crazy how something so small like Grab’s saving of addresses can have such a huge impact. It just goes to show that you never really know what’s going on in someone’s life.
I’m still trying to pick up the pieces of my broken heart and move on from this experience. It’s been a long and difficult road, but I’m slowly starting to heal.
I’ve learned my lesson and I will never make the same mistake again.
