Dean welcomed Cliff into their shared living space for a temporary summer internship.
Cliff had recently moved across the state for a local minor league baseball team job, but the position didn’t come with a large paycheck.
She Agreed to Pay for Everything!
His girlfriend, Meg, stepped in to cover his expenses.
“She paid for his rent, his gas, and his food. Not only was this girl very generous, and she was beautiful. He was a really lucky guy,” Dean explained.
Strong Bonds and Loving Commitments
Dean and Cliff grew closer, and a friendship blossomed between them.
Meg often visited on weekends, going above and beyond to support Cliff financially, even assisting him with work-related tasks, such as being the team mascot.
Shocking Swipe Betrayal!
It was evident that Meg loved Cliff with all her heart.
In a shocking twist, Dean noticed Cliff swiping on Tinder.
Staying Out of It
Dean thought nothing of it, reasoning, “I figure they might have some kind of open arrangement and didn’t want to get in the middle.”
Escape Room Escalation Leads to Heartbreaking Discovery
As the day of Cliff’s departure drew near, the roommates celebrated their time together with a farewell visit to an escape room.
After their failed attempt to crack the puzzles, Dean returned home to a disturbing scene.
Mysterious Girl Disturbs the Peace
Dean saw a girl that he didn’t recognise in his living room before exclaiming, “Dude, that’s a girl!”
Cliff’s defensive response was, “Guys and girls can be friends,” which left Dean feeling suspicious.
His Heartbreaking Past Is Revealed
Dean had been cheated on in the past and was disturbed by the scene, “I really cannot stand a cheater. My wife had left me earlier in the year for another man.”
Disturbing Noises From the Room Next Door
Dean’s world was shattered by the sounds of intimacy coming from Cliff’s room, “I do keep my door open so that my dog can come and go. when this strange girl came in the house, she started to bark at her.”
Then he reveals the shocking truth, “After that I started to hear them having sex.”
Playing On His Emotions Until He Finally Broke Down!
“At this point, I am very upset. I had told him about my ex-wife and everything she had put me through,” Dean recalls as he’s forced with a dilemma on what to do next.
With Cliff’s job coming to an end it was soon time for him to leave the flat, so Dean decided to tell Meg the painful truth.
Friendship Betrayal or Good Samaritan?
Dean messaged Meg saying, “I was wondering if you and your boyfriend had a special relationship? Do you and your boyfriend have an open relationship?”
Meg confirmed that she and Cliff did not have an open relationship.
Revealing His Past Infidelities
Dean delivered the bitter truth and Meg acknowledged that this wasn’t the first time Cliff had been unfaithful.
Meg then confronted Cliff on the matter before Dean blocked his number!
Losing All Contact
Now, Dean has no idea if they broke up and has lost all contact with his close friend.
Was this a good move or was it a cowardly act? One admitted, “If I was the girlfriend I would appreciate your honesty and consideration, even if it was difficult to hear.”
Another also expressed admiration while raising some concerns, “you did absolutely the right thing. Although I’m 97% certain the girlfriend thought you were hitting on her with those open relationship questions.”
