After two women discovered they’d been going out with the same man for eight months, they decided to work together and get the ultimate revenge: one flew to another country with him for a trip they’d planned, but then ditched the guy at the airport and took the vacation with the other woman.
Kristen Bishop, 33 a resident of Houston, Texas, says she received a voicemail in late March from a total stranger. Her name was Sophie Miller. Miller, a technical sales manager, said she’d been dating Kristen’s boyfriend, “Adam” (not his real name) for the duration of their (Kristen and Adam’s) relationship. He apparently had met Sophie on the same dating app where he had met Kristen, about a month beforehand.
Kristen said of the initial contact, “At first, getting the phone call was a bit shocking and [I was] in disbelief. Sophie was a really good team player about it and at the time I made first contact with her, I was asking questions and she said, ‘I’m at his house now if you’d like to see.’
“I said, ‘No, no, he’s out of town this weekend,’ because that’s what I believed to be true. She FaceTimed me to show me where she was.”
Kristen continued, “It was clear very quickly that she was telling the truth and we needed to talk some more to get to the bottom of what was happening.”
“I told her I was going to be traveling solo to Turkey. I’m not afraid to travel alone; it’s something I’ve done before. But she offered to join me so I wouldn’t have to be alone. Once Sophie offered to come on the trip, she booked the tickets a couple of hours later. Sophie planned to come in on a different flight than we did. We didn’t want to have him see her on the way there.”
Sophie arrived in Istanbul a few hours before Kristen and Adam, and was waiting at the airport for them when they landed.
“I told her I’d see her in Istanbul and we’d touch base as soon as we landed. Once I was at the airport, I had a message from her saying, ‘Here’s where I’m going to be sitting.’ We touched base in the women’s bathroom for a quick moment.
“She said, ‘Hey, I’m here. Here’s what I’m wearing where you can find me.’ We had a spot picked out where I was going to confront him,” she continued.
After Kristen and Adam landed in Turkey on April 2nd, she did the “big reveal” in the airport – Kristen told a ‘pretty stunned’ Adam that she knew about Sophie. She also let him know that she had changed all of their vacation reservations to just her name.
“I showed him some photos. One was a photo of me and Sophie, after we met up on that first night. I told him not to contact me again or follow me out of the airport. At which point I turned around, waved over to Sophie and she walked up.”
“His jaw dropped when he saw her. She reiterated my message, we turned around and walked away together.
“There was not much commentary on his part. He had already attempted to paint her in a negative light prior to that. He had tried to say they’d been broken up. I knew that wasn’t truthful. There wasn’t much opportunity for him to respond.”
With that, Kristen and Sophie left the airport and the two new friends enjoyed their vacation in Turkey.
Kristen said: “[Sophie and I] honestly had a phenomenal time. From the moment we met, we instantly connected over an unfortunate circumstance. We became friends quite quickly after we met up. We had lots of time to get to know each other and develop the friendship that came out of it. We really bonded over the eight-day trip and it’s by far the happiest thing out of this unfortunate situation, that I found a great friend. A girls’ trip is infinitely better than trying to travel alone to a foreign country.“
So then what happened? As per Kristen, “He ended up being on our flight home. There was a very short-lived attempt to mention something, but we weren’t interested. We were actually sitting behind him on the flight back. That’s a 13-hour flight.
“We just sat there chatting, giggling and enjoying the flight, and he heard every word.”
Nowadays, Kristen shares the warning signs she had, so other women don’t fall victim to cheats. She admits that his alleged refusal to commit to plans or communicate while away should have been a red flag.
Claiming he was not ‘willing to integrate or engage’ and was ‘very inflexible’, Kristen said: “Always trust your gut, know your worth and empower other women.”
