Who doesn’t love a good love story? After all, most people are interested in romance and often spend hours dreaming of ways they’d meet their significant other. However, while this girl got to live out a bona-fide romance novel, it didn’t quite end as nicely as one would have hoped.
A netizen recently took to a Facebook group to share her woes. Apparently, she’d met someone via a dating app and got pretty interested in him. He was a national athlete, caring and sweet on her. Unfortunately, she later discovered he’d ditched her for another girl. Needless to say, it left many wondering exactly who he had been!
The girl shared that she had been getting over a break-up when she met him. At the time, she had downloaded a dating app, hoping to find someone else to help her move on sooner. Well, she managed to match with him, and the duo chatted for a while. She soon found out he was a swimming athlete and was very friendly. However, she felt bad about using him to move on, so she stopped talking to him.
A month later, she felt she had gotten over the breakup, but the athlete was still on her mind. As such, she reached out to him. Of course, being a national athlete, his schedule was packed with training and competitions. But the duo worked hard to keep in touch. “Although we hadn’t met (physically) at the time, we still chatted occasionally,” the netizen said. “He would also take the initiative to (reach out) to me. When he arrived in Vietnam (for a competition), he sent me a video of his room and chatted (with me).”
They got closer during his competition as she was there for him when his team got disqualified. The duo ended up sharing more about themselves and the athlete even urged her to call him “babe”. He’d share anecdotes with her and didn’t seem to care if his teammates were around when she called. During one such chat, he made a request of her. “He asked me not to find anyone else, and I promised him I wouldn’t,” she stated. But things didn’t last.
Eventually, she realised he was drifting away from her. His responses seemed colder and he later told her he was still using the dating app. “But he didn’t try to chat with others, just swiped though it,” she wrote. “Although I was a little concerned, I didn’t say anything, but he told me not to (do the same).”
His next competition took him further and longer away. This time, before he left, he promised he wouldn’t chat with others and would call her as usual. However, as time went on, she noticed he got even colder with her. Eventually, he told her he liked someone else and claimed he hadn’t spoken to her yet.
“I found out that he had already started chatting with the girl early on and was already calling her,” the netizen shared wryly. “After he was sure the girl was interested in him, he told me he didn’t feel anything for me anymore. So, two months of my time were (wasted) by him.” The girl lamented that he claimed they were only friends, yet he didn’t treat her as such.
“He spoke to me every day. When he was sad, he’d ask me to accompany him. He shared his family and swimming with me, and looked for me when he wanted to play games together,” she wrote. “He said I sometimes made him jealous because I once went out with a guy friend (who already has a girlfriend and we aren’t that close).” She also shared an incident where she had jokingly called his more well-known teammate “babe”, which had supposedly annoyed him.
The netizen was quick to deny that it was a poser, claiming he had sent her footage of himself which couldn’t be found online. However, she refused to mention who it was, leaving many frustrated. Despite the few clues that they had, some were already speculating on the swimmer’s identity, with many certain they could narrow it down.
Well, it certainly is a mystery for the ages! However, we do hope the girl is doing better now after two successive heartbreaks. Hopefully she manages to find someone who will treat her right soon!
