Real Life Betrayal Stories People Can’t Get Over
There are two ways to stab someone in the back: physically and metaphorically. Sometimes it's hard to tell which one hurts more. These Redditors know that better than anyone and joined together to share their stories of the people who stabbed them in the back and what it taught them.
Betrayal Before The Big Screen
As the Redditor, @Sweetzombie expressed, he made plans to see a movie with his friends for his 16th birthday and planned it weeks in advance. Everybody bailed the day before or on the day but he decided to still see the movie. He ran into his whole group of friends leaving the movie theater while buying popcorn, ouch!
Traded In For A Better Model
I dated this girl for three years and loved her more than anything; then she broke up with me for the dumbest reasons. I was pretty hurt, and my best friend of 14 years went to her side and didn't ask me how I was at all. They ended up talking and are currently dating. We sympathize with you, @RyanCannon88!
Too Many Emotions Too Handle
The user, @genericname619 told his tale as follows; my best friend stopped talking to me after my dad passed away, and I found it strange. He took the whole friend group with him when he unfriended me. Apparently, I was "too emotional." I was 13. Having my entire friend group walk away stuck with me forever.
No Vacancy For Me
Listen to the sad story of Redditor, @Sighborgninja... I asked my friends if they wanted to live together in college. Then one of them asked another person in our friend group if he wanted to join in as well. Then they asked another…and another. And then once there were too many people for one apartment, they dropped me out of it.
I'm no longer "friends" with them. It was kind of a wake-up call, though. It really taught me not to put others on a pedestal and respect myself more and has since led to me developing far more healthy relationships that bring me a lot of happiness. I would rather live alone than with people who don't care for me anyway.
Snooping For Better And For Worse
Reddit user, @Atheizt expressed that his mate from school decided he liked his girlfriend, which understandably caused some tension. His girlfriend's phone went off while it was sitting in front of him and he noticed it was from the "friend", so he glanced at the message. It read:
"I'm so in love with you too, I just don't know what to tell him, but I guess it's his problem, not our [issue] babe."
Plot Twist On The Playground
I was bullied by everyone. My friend would be bullied too when they hung out with me at school, so we only played outside of school. One day a popular kid asked to play with me. "You're not as bad as 'friend' said you are." And that's how I learned why I was bullied. We're sorry that happened to you, @ArishaSmile.
Friends Close, Victims Closer
Listen to @EvilGargamel's bad experience... I had one "friend" who would steal from friends pretty regularly. One time I had a small social gathering (six or seven people), and my new smartphone went missing. Jerk helps me look for the phone in my house for over an hour, later on, I see my phone in his room on his desk.
I just took it back, and no words were exchanged as I left his house in silence. I just stopped talking to him altogether after that. Later, he was at a mutual friend's party. Her 80gb iPod goes missing. My friends and I were suspicious that it was him but gave him the benefit of the doubt.
The Worst Part Is Not Knowing
User, @niC00L, shared that when his friend's roommate moved out, they asked him if he wanted to move into their spare room. He was delighted to live with his good friends, and he did everything he could to be the best roommate possible. After three weeks, they found another source of income and kicked him out.
First, they offered to help him find another accommodation, but the next day they changed their mind and just told him to leave by the end of the month (it was seven days until the end of the month). They didn't speak to him ever again. He has no idea why and was semi-homeless for a while.
This Betrayal Made Me Join the Navy
In high school, I was in love with one of my best friends (I'll call her Jackie Black). Jackie Black and I dated a little bit then right before prom I found out she was with my other best friend (I'll call him Sam). It turned out they were going to prom together without telling me. Ouch, we feel for you, @nerd_ftw.
I confronted him about it, and he spread rumors around the school that I smacked Jackie around and emotionally abused her. I found this out when I arrived at the prom and had a mob of people drag me behind the hotel and beat me up. It was the worst moment of my life so I joined the Navy to getaway instead of going to the college
We Have The Wedding Blues
This Redditor's story, @snakeoil-huckster, took a turn for the worse. My friends saw someone hugging me, and I told everyone I was cheating on my fiancé. Our wedding was to be at the "cheater's" house, and the backlash was devastating. We canceled the wedding and got married at the courthouse.
The Real Mean Girls
The user, @elizzzzzabethqq shared, a "quiet" girl I made "friends" with would only sit with me in class so she could go snitch about me to my ex-friends. She would literally sit next to me for one or two classes (randomly) then go sit with them (later). It was awkward, and I have no idea why she had an issue with me.
I called her out on it after she came to sit next to me and told her, "Why do you even bother sitting with me when we both know you're just trying to get stuff to talk about me with them? When I come back from the bathroom, you better go sit somewhere else." She left, and we never spoke again.
Brought a friend into a company based on my backing him because he had zero verifiable work experience. He ended up going around making up stuff about me to my boss, got the position I was supposed to get as a supervisor, and ended up getting me fired from the job I got him in the first place. Your "friend" was a jerk, @Permalink.
Friend Or Foe, I Don't Know.
@NakedKittyAlucard expressed, my husband and I had a friend who we helped get back on his feet. Paid off some tickets he had. Got his license reinstated. We even hooked him up with a reliable connection for a reasonable, well-running car to replace his beater… AND we gave him a place to live and a job (automotive repair).
He decided it was a better choice to tell all our customers we were overcharging them (spoiler: we weren't). He'd do the jobs cheaper if they'd bring it to him at his house (This was a short time after he moved out of our house, after never repaying anything he owed us. Not that we'd asked). Broke my heart…
Looted By My Roommate
The user @Habosh shared his story expressing that, as roommates in college, we purchased furniture and electronics for the house. The agreement is that when we graduated and moved out that one would buy the other out. The day comes when my roommate begins packing up for his new job in another city.
I said my goodbyes and headed to work for the day. I returned eight hours later to an empty house. The jerk took everything he could. I never pressed charges because I had no proof, but I will surely never forgive him. I guess you really can't trust anyone, not even your own roommate!
Soap-Opera Level Betrayal
Redditor, @Nephilimelohim had a good bud of his who was the godfather of his son, living with his wife. He traveled a lot for work and was out of the country for about six months at a time (working mostly in the Middle East.) He came back and found out his wife was pregnant with twins, and that they weren't his.
Ring Heist Time
The user, @T-Money93's friend stole his fiancé from him. He took it one step further and married her using the ring that YOURS TRULY bought. Profile pictures now feature her holding her hand up with that ring, and everyone is pretending he bought it for her. The cheek of that person to take the ring! I'm still shocked...
Thankfully, all wounds heal, and there are always people out there that will help you recover. Chances are if someone stabbed you in the back, they weren't that great anyway, and you're probably better off without them. Leave your own story of betrayal below!
