Your boyfriend cheats on you. This really blows. But let’s be honest, who do you hate more? Him, who you’ve now forgotten about the time he got piss drunk at your cousin’s wedding and you spent the night with him praying to the porcelain gods or the girl who he slept with? Yeah, I’d guess the latter. But now I’m going to tell you something you probably don’t want to hear: you’ve probably been her too.
Not at all speaking from personal experience, but boys are extremely hard to read. He could be super into sneaking into a building on your college campus after a few VWLs, asking for academic head in a random classroom because of the intense sexual aesthetic, and then even returning the favor when you get back to his fraternity. But then later you look at his phone background and see the girl who lived on your floor freshman year. You then return home to stalk her only to realize that, yes, they’ve been dating for three years. Tragic. Then a few weeks later, he hooks up with another girl you also know but weren’t around to warn. Serial.
It’s no secret that men love to hook up. It’s no secret that women love to hook up. Which is why, due to mathematical calculations and a highly scientific survey conducted via a Facebook group, the odds are that you’ve been the “other woman” whether you know it or not. In fact, it’s probably better that you don’t know it, but here I am to be the bearer of bad news and tell you. I’m also here to tell you that it’s okay.
The girlfriend may hate you. You might not even know she hates you. She might not even know who specifically to hate, but you’re hated somewhere I guarantee it. Which is why I’m calling on all girls to stop hating the other woman, hate the guy because you’ve probably been the other woman.
Hate the guy because scientific fact shows that guys can be tools so almost all of the time the girl didn’t know. I don’t know but if I were a guy looking to score I wouldn’t start with “Hey, I’ve got a girlfriend, please blow me in this old classroom.” Hate the guy because he felt so aroused by some random who is not you, he needed to drop his pants. Hate the guy because 46 percent of women have admitted to having been “the other woman.” Hate the guy because, like I’ve said, you’ve probably been that girl, whether you know it or not..
