This is unchartered territory for me but I feel sick to my stomach and think something inappropriate is going on. I thought of going anonomous but why bother.
My Fiance travels for his job a lot, usually about 2 weeks out of the month. He left yesterday and instead of coming home Thursday, he will be out of town until next Wednesday, so next week will be the earliest I see him in person.
Before he left yesterday, he took my car to run out to the store. I have a habit of leaving my cell phone in my car, so he called his phone from mine. I answered it, recognizing my number, and he said he was relieved that his phone was there. He does not have a lock on his phone. I didn’t think anything of it but he said if anyone calls to let it go to voicemail. No one did call.
He took a later flight out last night than usual and since he was going east the time difference was an hour later than us, he said if he gets in too late he won’t call. I asked him to text just to let me know he got there OK. He said he would. He usually travels by himself but he told me he was going with 3 coworkers, 2 guys and a woman. He was totally normal before he left.
This morning I noticed he did not text me so I texted him to make sure he got there and I never heard from him, which is very unusual as he lives on his phone. I figured he went out with his coworkers after they got to their hotel, however, I felt a little uneasy but I tend to be a bit paranoid about things so I just tried to brush it off.
This afternoon I got a text from a number I didn’t recognize that said “Hi cutie! What time are we going to dinner tonight?”
I don’t know why, but I decided to play along for a minute so I texted back “What time do you want to go?”
The person texted back “Well I need to go back to my room and freshen up first. By The Way you left your iPad in my room last night so you can pick it up and drop it off before we go.”
I was (and still am) shaking and texted “is it just us going to dinner? Are you sure it’s my iPad?”
The person texted “Yes because it has a picture of you and your hunny bunny on the lock screen. I thought she didn’t like your beard. I think it makes you look sexier :)” My Fiance calls me his hunny bunny and I know the exact picture the person was talking about!
I texted back “who is this?”
The person texted “Cindy, you dope!” (Obviously I’m not using her real name but it was the woman traveling with FI) Is this B? (My FI’s name)”
I then called the number as I was about to explode and a woman answered “Hi Cutie!” I said “This isn’t Cutie, this is Hunny Bunny!” and she immediately hung up. I am assuming Fiance was texting “Cindy” yesterday when he was out doing errands with my phone and she didn’t realize it was my number.
So I tried to call Fiance. No answer. I tried again, no answer. I texted him that I needed to speak to him immediately.
He called around a half hour later. I was a complete mess and I didn’t want him to hear me hysterical. So I first asked him why he didn’t text me when he got in. He said he was sorry but he got in really late and forgot (he’s never, ever forgotten before). He also said he had to get up really early and he was busy all day, that this was the first chance he got to talk to me.
Then I asked if he went right to his room from the airport and he got mad and said I was sounding very accusing, like I didn’t trust him. He didn’t answer so I asked again. He said that him and his coworkers went for a quick dinner and he went back to his room. I told him all about the texts from Cindy. I asked if his iPad was in her room. He said no. I said then let’s Skype right now. He got mad and said my jealousy was really a turn off.
So we started bickering back and forth about whether or not he had actually left his iPad in her room. According to her, he did, according to him, he did not. I asked if everything was so innocent, why did she hang up when I called and why would she call him Cutie? He said she calls everyone Cutie. I asked if she had a SO and he said she has a boyfriend but they’ve been having “problems” so he was there talking to her last night, but not in her room.
He then had to abruptly go. I said very sarcastically, to go to dinner with her? He said I was really being annoying and that he’d talk to me later. He did not answer my question.
I called my best friend very upset and she doesn’t think I overreacted at all. She said he did nothing to alleviate my fears and that the texts do not look good.
He hasn’t called all night, and I am sitting here wondering if I did overreact and I am a jealous pyscho Fiance, or if something more is up. They always say where there’s smoke there’s fire and there seems to be a awful lot of smoke!
I don’t think I will get any sleep tonight.
