Have you ever seen You on Netflix? It’s amazing, but boy is it creepy. A bookstore manager named Joe meets a woman named Beck, and he becomes completely obsessed with her.
So obsessed, that he stalks her, and even takes out other guys she’s interested in so he can end up with her.
Just when you thought this plotline was too insane for real life, you were wrong.
A 32-year-old woman recently revealed online that she found out her husband stalked and manipulated her into being with him.
The internet is saying this guy is a real-life Joe from You and her story gave me chills (not the good kind), and people are seriously concerned for her safety.
She starts out by explaining that she met her 37-year-old husband Dave around 5 years ago, and they tied the knot around 2 and a half years ago.
They went on to have a daughter, 20-months-old, and this woman is 4 months along with their second child.
They also just bought a nice house in the suburbs a few years ago. She’s a stay-at-home mom, which she loves.
Dave works to support their family and makes good money. He’s a wonderful husband, a great father, and her best friend.
He sounds like the perfect man, but she found out not long ago about a pretty dark secret he was keeping from her that has her wondering if she should even stay married to him.
“Dave was an acquaintance of a coworker (Mark), so about 5 years ago I started to see him frequently at the bar we’d go get drinks at after work,” she said.
“I’ll admit that at first I wasn’t particularly attracted to him, not that he’s ugly! He just wasn’t the type I was into at that point in my life.”
Dave tried to pursue her, she kindly rejected him…but Dave did not give up.
He was very persistent, and after she admits she had a few drinks more than she should have, she relented and said she would let him take her out on a date.
What could go wrong, right?
Their first date started out a little awkward, but then she noticed as the night went on that Dave started talking about things that really interested her.
She couldn’t believe that had so many things in common, so she continued to see him. Even though he was more interested in her than she was in him, she then ended up falling in love with him.
“Up until last night, I had a great, loving husband, a beautiful family, and a life that most would kill for. Technically nothing has changed, except what I now know,” she explained.
