Here is a lesson to all of the ladies out there: don't test your boyfriend's loyalty by setting him up with another woman. It is bound to fail as one British woman found out.
The Daily Mirror tells the story of Samantha Phipps, who suspected that boyfriend Jack Ewing (left, in happier times) was cheating on her.
"But what could I do? I confided in friends and one simply said ‘so test him,'" the 26-year-old recounted to the tabloid. “She suggested I set it up for a woman to chat him up and see if he fell for it. If he was true to his word, he’d tell her he was already spoken for and if not, I’d know he was a cheat."
She found a service online (for about $300) that does just that, and a meeting was set up for one night when Samantha knew Jack would be at a local bar. Afterwards, Samantha got the bad news from the woman who called herself "Miss Honeytrap."
"He bought her a drink and half an hour later they went outside and kissed. They even arranged to meet again."
And then Jack disappeared. She called and texted for several days with no response. Then he finally responded.
"The message I got back was brutal and to the point: ‘I’ve gone and I’m not coming back’. I burst into tears, worried he’d found out about my trap," Samantha said.
Drowning her sorrows at a bar later in the week, Samantha spotted Jack with a woman.
“He was sat there with the honeytrap who I recognized from a photo on the website,” she said. “I asked what the hell she was doing and looking really nervous she said sorry, that it had just happened.
