This Man’s Horrific Christmas Twitter Tale of Running Into His Ex With A Wife & Children Goes Viral

Relationships are hard. Not only because nobody said they’re ever going to be easy, but also because they deal with humans and emotions. And those are probably two of the most unpredictable things that life has to offer.

However, when it comes to relationships, there is also something alluring about them—it’s so intriguing to us humans that we can’t but be attracted to it all. Oh, and when there’s drama and perhaps a feud involved, it becomes even more appealing. So appealing that it can go viral.

In this case, it did. Blogger Daniel Andrew from England has recently tweeted about how he ran into his ex-boyfriend, his wife, and children—the latter two he was not aware of—and, later, his ex tried to get back together with him. Daniel took to Twitter with this story, where it went viral.

Daniel tweeted about his encounter with his ex who, unbeknownst to him, apparently had a wife and kids

Dan’s ex felt the need to contact him and to explain everything…

… but Dan wanted none of that.

Needless to say, Dan’s ex’s messages were relentless

Not only did the ex never tell Dan about his family, but he was also willing to ‘leave it all behind’

It all lead to the iconic ‘I forgot’ about his wife and children

The ex’s sad attempts at reconciling the relationship did not stop until Dan had enough and simply blocked him

Yeesh, nobody deserves that. Dan, you dodged a bullet, obviously. But dont let it define you. Someone will love you for you, and you will find that person the moment you least expect it. Just dont lose yourself to trash like this in the process.

Personally, I think Dan should let his ex know under no certain terms that if said ex contacts him again, all of the text messages will be forwarded to his wife.... I have sympathy for people that deny their orientation and get married to appear heterosexual...but there is no excuse for cheating on your spouse. When you figure out that you made a mistake by denying you are homosexual, have the decency to explain that and end the relationship with your current spouse before going to pursue a new relationship. Your spouse does not deserve to be put through that Hell of discovering you've been cheating behind their back on top of finding out you are homosexual. It's not that hard to do the right thing.

Agreed, but i do feel for the spouse who then feels like it was their fault, that they sucked so bad that they made the other person homosexual (or for gay marriages, heterosexual). No, I don't believe that actually happens, BUT when being left by the person you love you will always feel that you are at fault. And in some cases, like abuse or personality conflicts, you may be right. But this....this would hurt to the core. Granted being cheated on AND learning about the change in desired gender would possibly be too much for many. (edited for spelling)

He forgot to mention his wife and kids? TOTALLY forgot he had a wife and kids??? I am very absent-minded. I have forgotten to pick up bread on the way home or forgotten birthdays and anniversaries, but I have never forgotten that I have a spouse.
