Mother Turns To Internet For Help After Catching Her Husband On Grindr

A desperate mother turned to the internet for help after catching her husband using the gay hookup app Grindr.

The distraught wife turned to Mumsnet, a website where parents can swap advice with each other, and posted the following message titled: “My husband is on grindr. I need some hugs and advice

Hello. Hands shaking. Today I found my DH on Grindr. Without a doubt it is him. Posing in our ensuite bathroom. Confronted him. Says it is not him but refuses to let me see his phone. He is refusing to talk to me. Two children. 7 and 10. I am 43. Dont know what to do. Please some advice.

“Sorry but may I ask what Gindr is? Is it a dating Site?,” wrote one user.

“Yes. He is in kitchen. God cant type. Have had doubts. Discussed it with him and he makes me feel tgat I am paranoid,” the wife replied. “It is a gay pick up site. I know my DH. You can see some of his face. God I even recognise his pants and moles on his chest. He went ashen when I showed him and them defensive and then silence.”

“I think the advice about putting him in the spare room for a few nights till you can get over the shock then you’ll be in a better position to talk about where you go from here,” wrote another user. “If it was me and I talked now I’d end up screaming shouting or worse.”

“I downloaded the app. Low and behold up he appears,” the wife adds. “His message was beyond crude – that he would be ebegetic for a nice ass and that he wants to learn new tricks. . Feel sick. And why cant he just admit it. Tried to take a photo but it didnt work. We had sex on Saturday. We laugh. He tells me he loves me. I will have to go to GUM clinic…His phone is always locked (no wonder) and he said he will never let me see it even though I am distressed…At the top of his pic it just read hooks up only.”

After receiving hundreds of messages of advice, she came to the conclusion that her husband has probably “been living with this huge burden and I have no intention of destroying him or his reputation so long as he plays fair.”

“I dont know if I can face a solicitor and have no savings to pay for one,” she adds. “I am going to take tomorrow off work as sick leave. Just cant face going in. Cant help wishing I was still in the dark but that is no way to live. Why could he not face up to his sexuality. He has checked out though and I deserve better. I am going to try and get some sleep.”
