This just happened about a month ago, right before the end of my freshman year of college. I know that I’m young and life will go on but I’m just so hurt by the whole situation. I’ll try to keep this short…..
I knew Kyle from around town but never actually hung out with him much in high school. We went to different high schools but had crossed paths throughout the years. We were always cordial with each other and would sometimes flirt, but never anything beyond that. We both ended up going to state university about 40 minutes outside of town. A lot of students from our high schools either go there or to the private university in town, so we stay close. Kyle and I ended up having a history class together. At first, we just said hi and made small talk, but eventually we were going out for lunch after class and studying together. We hooked up one night and he asked me to be his girlfriend. I was so excited to be in a relationship and happy it was with someone I thought I knew.
In January, my best friend Ashley transferred from the private university to state. I was even happier now because that girl was like my sister and it was so glad to be close to her again. Ashley, Kyle and I ended up taking a few classes together and we had a blast. College was great!
With final exams approaching, Kyle and I were studying in his room together a lot. One night, he decided to take a break and get a quick nap. I stayed up to put the finishing touches on a paper and organize my physics notes. I opened Kyle’s laptop so that I could run a videocast of an old lecture to double check something that I didn’t quite get. I was halfway through when one of his tabs started blinking. I wouldn’t have even bothered to open it had it not kept distracting me. I clicked the tab and saw a chat log open, with a new message that read “get up and get over here now if you can. I miss you!” No….no….something had to be wrong here. I knew that screen name, I actually had a chat open with that very person right now. My best friend Ashley was telling my boyfriend to come over? She had just popped into chat and asked me what I was up to. I told her that I was working on my paper but never mentioned that I was at Kyle’s place. So she had taken that as the perfect opportunity to hook up with him. But according to the chat log, it wasn’t the first time, and he was just as guilty as she was. They had devised the whole chat idea so that there was never any evidence in their phones. I had only used Kyle’s laptop once before, so I’m sure he never thought that he would get caught.
It turns out that they had been secretly dating since November of last year. He was the reason that she had transferred. They said that they accidentally fell in love and couldn’t help how they felt. Each and every day, they had smiled in my face all while scheming behind my back. I’m broken and can’t trust anyone. I feel so alone and dread having to return to school in the fall.
