We have yet to come across a love connection that is completely ideal, and dealing with matters of the heart may be difficult. Faith Bistline was horrified to learn that her lover had been seeing someone else since she had thought he was true to her.
Two Women Learned They Were Dating The Same Man, Dumped Him, And Went On Vacation
She was preparing to go to Costa Rica with her boyfriend to celebrate her 30th birthday when she received a message on Facebook from an anonymous sender.
The message asked, “Is he your boyfriend?” pointing to a picture of her man, “Because he’s been dating my friend for the past 10 months.”
She was so astonished that she wanted to think there was a mistake. To explain the problem to her lover, she emailed him a copy of the communication. Unfortunately, he declined to reply, so she was unable to gain the confidence she needed.
Soon after, Emily Ortiz, who had been seeing her boyfriend for over a year, texted Bistline. She thought they were in an exclusive relationship and wanted to know Bistiline and her man's dating history.
Bistline, who claimed to have tried unsuccessfully to gain an explanation from Ortiz, was unaware of Ortiz's history.
The two ladies exchanged photos of the man to confirm that they had been dating the same person. It turned out that while they were both staying at the man's apartment on different dates, he had met both of their families.
They eventually put everything together and discovered how the man had cheated on them discreetly without raising any red flags.
Both of them live in Las Vegas and work in the medical industry. The guy met Bistline, a nurse, through a friend before they began dating in April 2021.
Ortiz, a medical assistant, was the first person he ever met there. He asked her out in October 2021 without telling her he was already engaged.
Two days later, the man finally responded to Bistline. She became even more furious by the half-laugh emoji he added to the text, which read, “So I guess I have a little bit of explaining to do,” without any indication of regret, which irritated her more. “That really got under my skin.” I asked, “Do you find this amusing?” “Yes,” said Bistline.
On one hand, Ortiz realized he was lying and went home right away. She was forced to wait outside for hours since he never showed up. She was relieved to find him there when she returned to his flat the following evening.
Ortiz admitted, “I pushed him.” “What are you talking about?” he questioned. You’re crazy; I mentioned the messages, and he said, “Oh, yeah.” She claimed that when he expressed regret, he said to her, “I never should have let it get out of hand.”
Ortiz and Bistline ended their relationships with their unfaithful ex-boyfriends and focused on getting better. At this point, Bistline informed Ortiz of her plans to celebrate her birthday in Costa Rica.
She thought about going with Ortiz since, of course, she wouldn't go with her ex-boyfriend any longer. “Please let me know if you’re serious about Costa Rica."
"I’m going to bring you instead of him, I swear,” Bistline wrote.
Ortiz agreed to her offer three weeks after finding out about their boyfriend's affair, and on September 16 they traveled to Costa Rica together. It was the perfect “breakup” holiday.
Bistline admitted that she didn’t want to take a vacation by herself. “I was thinking a trip like this would probably benefit us both.” After everything we’ve been through, we deserve this.
Ortiz said that he had some misgivings regarding Bistline.
"At first, I thought this girl was crazy," she said. But I was simply considering that it could be advantageous for us to heal together since we are the only two who are aware of our experiences.
Bistline and Ortiz spent four days adventuring and discovering Costa Rica's natural beauties. They had a terrific friendship and became close.
As a consequence of the encounter, Ortiz expressed satisfaction at finding a new friend, but she also added that the most crucial lesson she has learned is to "always listen to your intuition."
