Airports are usually associated with romantic comedies and chasing after the one you love, like the iconic scene in Love Actually. But this woman used it as the perfect setting to dump her cheating boyfriend.
Not only that, but the woman he was cheating on her with also dumped him there before the two went on a girls' trip to celebrate their new-found freedom.
Kristen Bishop, 33, from Houston, Texas, had been dating her boyfriend, 34, for eight months after meeting him on Hinge in August 2020. She then received a voicemail from a stranger saying that she had also been dating the same man during their entire relationship.
The stranger was 26-year-old Sophie Miller, who had met the boyfriend on the same dating app a month before Kristen. Sophie verified her cheating allegation by facetiming Kristen while inside the boyfriend's flat. He had told Kristen that he was 'away' while he was actually with Sophie.
Kristen only received the voicemail four days before she was set to go on a romantic getaway to Turkey that she had planned with her boyfriend. She therefore thought that she would have to do the trip on her own as it was too late to cancel all the reservations she had made.
However, when Sophie and Kristen met up the day after the voicemail to plot their revenge, Sophie offered to come on the trip with her.
They planned to confront the boyfriend at the airport in a dramatic reveal. Sophie took a different flight to Kristen to avoid being spotted by the boyfriend, and then the two women arranged to meet in the women's bathroom once they touched down in Istanbul. They then picked a spot to reveal the truth to him.
In the terminal, Kristen says she confronted her boyfriend, also telling him that all his reservations had been changed to Sophie's name and that he shouldn't contact her again.
She then turned around and waved at Sophie who came walking up.
Kristen said: "His jaw dropped when he saw her. She reiterated my message, we turned around and walked away together."
Sophie and Kristen then enjoyed their girls' trip, going to a hammam, cruising the Bosphorus River and exploring caves.
Kristen said: "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.
It wasn't the last they saw of the now ex-boyfriend though.
Kristen said: "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."
Kristen is now sharing the warning signs of a cheating partner, siting red flags such as refusal to commit to plans or communicate while away.
Good on you, girls. Sounds like you had a fab holiday!
