Woman makes crazy discovery about date just days after get-together: 'Men are SICK'

Morgan Greenwald

The dating world is rough. Just when you think you’ve met someone who might be the one, you find out that the two of you just aren’t compatible — or worse, that your Mr. Right is actually someone else’s Mr. Right, too.

Recently, Twitter user Anna shared a story that truly highlights the sad reality of being single and navigating the dating world. Apparently, she “hit it off” and “hooked up” with a guy, only for him to get engaged to his ex-girlfriend a week later.

In a screenshot Anna shared to Twitter, she confronted the guy, asking him, “What was up with your Instagram post? Engaged??”

“We have been off and on since thanksgiving,” he responded. “She caught wind that you and I were hanging out.. and she said that if I don’t put a ring on it, I’d never see her again.. we are down here in Mexico for her bff bday and s*** got wild the last few nights with drugs n s*** and friends and we didn’t expect it but we just went for it today.”

Anna’s former fling goes on to explain that he and his fiancée “aren’t engaged in the US yet, only Mexico.” (That isn’t a thing.)

“Im taking my life literally one f****** day at a time and it’s insane, but like damn… idk, this is my life and I am in love with her with everything in my heart,” he said.

People — mainly women — quickly rushed to the comments to share their thoughts about how “men ain’t s***.”

“Men are SICK,” one person said.

“Gents don’t be like this it’s really simple,” another user added.

Many people simply couldn’t believe that the mystery man thought that getting engaged in Mexico didn’t count in the United States.

“Anyone else stuck on ‘only in Mexico’??? Does he think….does he think that engagements can only happen in one country at a time?” one person said.

“Phew I thought he was engaged in the US,” another person joked.

In a follow-up tweet, Anna explained that she harbors no resentment and simply posted the screenshot as a “funny tweet.” At least she still has her sense of humor!
