A sneaky man divided Redditors when he used his Russian language skills to trick his girlfriend. What she didn’t know actually did hurt her in this case. Here is the full story.
He Loves Russian
OP taught himself Russian several years ago and then ended up living in Ukraine for a while.
He’s Completely Fluent
That gave him the chance to brush up on his language skills in a real-life setting.
Now, OP speaks pretty much flawless Russian.
He Found the Perfect Girl
Later on, when he was back home, OP started dating a Russian girl. She was bilingual, though, so there was never any need for him to speak in her native tongue.
He Had a Secret
And OP never even told his new girlfriend that he could speak Russian.
He Was Selfish
OP’s motivation for keeping his Russian skills a secret was a very selfish one.
He Was Going to Play Dumb
In particular, OP wanted to make his girlfriend think she could speak with her friends in Russian and that he’d have no idea what she was saying.
He Wanted to Spy on Her
That way, OP could find out if his girlfriend was really loyal to him, or if she was saying anything bad about him.
It was his way of spying on her.
More Than He Bargained For
OP’s plan paid off for him big time, but in the most terrible of ways, after they had been dating for about 4 weeks.
It Was Just Girl Talk
One night while she was at his apartment, OP’s girlfriend was talking to one of her buddies on the phone.
As usual, they were speaking Russian.
She Cheated on Him
OP felt sick when he heard his girlfriend tell her friend that she had cheated on him twice while he was out of town not long before.
She Felt Guilty
OP listened as his girlfriend came clean to the girl on the other end of the phone line and said that she felt like she’d made a mistake.
He Busted Her
That’s when OP busted in on the conversation and told his girlfriend that she was right.
She had made a huge mistake.
He Gave Her the Boot
At that point OP told his girlfriend that their relationship was over and that she needed to leave his apartment immediately.
She Demanded an Explanation
OP’s girlfriend was shocked that he busted her and demanded to know why he hadn’t told her he could understand Russian.
He Violated Her Trust
The girlfriend then got really angry and accused OP of violating her privacy by listening in on her conversations the whole time they were together.
He Was Done With Her
But OP didn’t want to hear her whining and told her to leave immediately or he would carry her out himself.
She Told Everyone
Eventually, the girl left OP’s apartment, but she told everyone they knew what had happened.
They All Turned on Him
In the days that followed, their mutual friends attacked OP by text and through phone calls. They all think he’s a horrible person for “spying” on his girlfriend.
He’s Proud of Himself
But OP told those friends, mostly girls, that he’s glad he did what he did.
How else would he have known that his girlfriend cheated on him?
He Dodged a Bullet
And since the cheating happened so early in their relationship, OP feels like he really dodged a bullet.
Redditors are torn about this situation. Some of them agree with OP that the ends justify the means and think he was clever for what he did.
But others think OP totally violated his girlfriend’s privacy and is no better than she is for cheating.
In the end, some say, maybe OP and his ex deserved each other.
