I wouldn't have thought that's the sort of reputation you'd want to give yourself even if your now-ex-girlfriend really did break up with you...

You're probably better off. Her friend seems like the type of friend that would rather keep her single than with anyone for some time...

While it was immature, it is understandable. OP was emotional, struck out, and regretted it. Happens to everybody. Hopefully the gf will forgive you OP.

While it may be understandable, I don't think that it was a good idea to try to further escalate the situation, #17. :)

I can understand being hurt, but I don't see why "I cheated" was the go to. It MIGHT hurt them, yes, but you really think that will be kept to themselves? Sorry YDI. The friend was terrible as well, but op still did something stupid.

I hope you're meaning the girlfriend for playing a retarded prank like that in the first place.

The girlfriend didn't play the prank according to the FML, her friend did. And it can mean cheating, but if someone admits interest in you and you break up with your partner to date them, you're actually avoiding cheating.

When said lashing out will escalate the situation beyond repair. A few moments of contemplation could have left things amicable (even if she was actually breaking up with him) and saved him years of trying to recover his reputation.

Immature? Getting burned hurts, especially when your girl leaves you for another man. I'd blame the person who first sent that text.

It's immature, it shows you can't handle emotions like an adult. Lashing out at someone for breaking up with you aiming to hurt them isn't how you handle the hurt feelings. I can understand getting angry if the breakup was done with no regards to your feelings, but claiming to have cheated? Really?

If her friend sent the text but she didn't respond to say sorry Becky sent that we aren't really over. She was playing along too. I don't really understand why everyone is attacking him for saying he cheated. #1 it was a lie to his ex. #2 She's a bitch for treating him that way and making him think out of the blue that his relationship is over. we also have no idea how long they've been together and yes that does matter. if my bf of a month-8months did what she did I'd be like "okay? bye&qu

let me teach you about the "amygdala" when a deep emotion occurs, it activates and makes your brain and body act differently, something known as the "limbic system". this hit OP hard, so his. brain decided to act dumb for a second. so, FML, op.

#118 you won the comments award. You were right. The girlfriend had Big part to play. Why did she let her friend do that in the first place and why didn't she follow up with sobering like, "that was so in so, they were kidding, sorry for that... babe were good." In my opinion she may have caused the whole thing.

I wouldn't say op jumped to conclusions but I do think it would've been wise to try and call the girlfriend or talk to her in person before he started freaking out on her. Anyone could've had her phone and stupid friends tend to pull pranks like that unfortunately. Plus, she could've done it just to see what his reaction would be (we all know those kinds of girls). If it were me I would've tried to get in contact with the person first before saying something that would irreparably damage things.

I agree 4, and OP, try to convince her you didn't really cheat and that you just felt betrayed and made a stupid mistake. You didn't really cheat.

Right? If it were true, the ex would have the reputation of being a cheating slut. But now it's OP. Revenge isn't always sweet. Getting back at someone doesn't make you a better person.

Ouch. Sorry OP, that sucks you were hurt by their prank but it's a good example of why you should take the high road. Hope you can learn a little from this and move on!

Why the fuck, man? Even if she did ditch you for another guy, she'd not even be worth the time for a remark like that. It's not something to be proud of anyway.

Reply

I'm PRETTY sure that he didn't claim it out of pride, but rather quickly deduced what might hurt her on an equivalent scale...just a thought though.

if you have another lined up, why would you care if the ex was a cheater? kind of like so long and good riddance.

Reply

97, because cheaters usually have no issue dishing it out and doing it to others but can't handle the thought of someone doing it to them!
