To many people, beauty influencer Cathryn Li (李元玲) is a strong, independent woman who doesn’t need a man. After all, she’s confident in herself, and seems to have her life sorted!
However, Cathryn has been in several relationships before, although they didn’t last long. In fact, her most recent relationship ended disastrously! Yesterday (10th April), Cathryn shared what went down with her ex and what exactly broke them apart.
A few days ago, Cathryn posted an eye-catching post on her Instagram Story. She stated that her friend had asked her about the worst time in her life. Unsurprisingly, Cathryn stated it was last year. On top of dealing with “the biggest PR crisis in (her) life“, Cathryn’s then-boyfriend apparently cheated on her with her best friend. Apparently, when it rains, it really pours.
Of course, her fans were curious about the issue and Cathryn later revealed more. She stated that her ex had been very sweet to her in the beginning. “I got used to his company, and slowly fell in love with this warm man who seemed harmless and upright,” she wrote. Cathryn stated she cared for him, opting to pay for her own meal or choose affordable ones when he wanted to treat her. Additionally, she wanted to “give him a sense of security and trust” by not having relationships with other boys.
Unfortunately, things changed drastically after her ex met her friends during a karaoke session. He was apparently “crazy” about her best friend and claimed Cathryn was being self-indulgent about their relationship. The influencer explained she had plenty of proof to refute his claim, such as intimate photos of themselves and records of him visiting her at her house. Afraid of losing him, she posted a photo of them together, yet took it down after he requested her to.
In the end, all her sacrifices were for naught. The two had supposedly already started dating behind Cathryn’s back. “I have been unable to release this lingering nightmare,” Cathryn sighed. “I hid at home and couldn’t go out to meet people. Maybe it was depression, but I didn’t dare to believe in men again.”
Additionally, Cathryn posted a warning about her ex and her best friend, showing their faces to boot. “I’m warning all the girls to not fall for his trap,” she stated, referring to her former lover. “He sees and flirts with multiple girls at the same time, but always tells others he’s still single.” As for her best friend, Cathryn stated she no longer has Cathryn’s trust. “I really can’t believe in “girlfriends” anymore,” Cathryn wrote.
China Press somehow got in touch with her boyfriend who claims to have no comment regarding the matter. “If I respond, there will be more (issues),” he apparently told the news site. However, Cathryn wasn’t done dragging him through the mud just yet. She alleged she had a few others message her saying they have also been tricked by her ex. Cathryn stated she would ask these others to share their side of the story as well.
Thankfully, time and distance has helped her heal from the incident somewhat. Cathryn hopes to be able to let go of it soon and wants to believe there are “still good men waiting for (her)“.
The influencer shared about her ideal boyfriend last year and is clearly holding out for someone special to step into her life. Hopefully her next relationship is less toxic and better for her!
