Did you see signs of cheating before D-Day? Furtive cell phone shenanigans? Odd smells? Portents and omens?
To be a chump is to be unknowing. (And that’s as it should be — trusting your partner is natural.) Of course, cheaters are doing everything they can to conceal their nefarious double lives, and gaslighting you when confronted with something “off.”
If you see the signs now, don’t beat yourself up. No one comes equipped with a wingnut decoder ring.
Part of the point of this blog is to reveal the manipulations so others don’t fall into the same tiger pit.
It’s really beyond most people’s ken to imagine that predators exist, or that double lives are a thing.
But knowledge is power. So your Friday Challenge is to tell CN what were the signs? What was off then that makes sense now?
Warn the newbies.
This is an updated post. Good to have all the intel in one place!
