An Instagram model caught her boyfriend cheating on her with prostitutes after viewing messages on his Apple Watch.
Neyleen Ashley, 30, from Miami, Florida, met her ex-boyfriend, who has not been named, through mutual friends back in 2016.
She thought he was immature at first and was’t suitable for her long-term, but her affection for him grew and things soon became serious.
Neyleen saw numerous red flags during their long-distance relationship, but would sweep it under the rug as she was completely smitten by him.
Neyleen said: “My feelings about him were that he was very immature and not ready to settle down, but then as things progressed the feelings grew and eventually we became very serious about each other, but I always saw red flags, being that we were in a long distance relationship things were easy for him to keep under wraps.
“He would never post me on social media, and he was very secretive about his phone.
"I always posted him on my stories and made it known I was in a relationship, and my phone was always at his disposal.”
Neyleen helped pay for all her partner's expenses – but was none the wiser as he saw other women behind her back.
Neyleen had a hunch something was wrong and admitted their relationship was always “rocky”, but she said her caring nature often took over and she became blind-sided to his behaviour.
She added: “Our relationship was always rocky. He never made me feel secure as a woman, or that I was worth anything.
“I figured dating a normal man from a small town that he would be in ‘awe’ of me, but he treated me like I was anyone else.
“At the time he was trying to get his life in order so I was the sole money maker towards the end of the relationship, and he used my money and his free time to see prostitutes, go to massage parlours or even have another girlfriend in another city.
“He left me to see these prostitutes on my mother’s birthday knowing how stressed I was, and wouldn’t even talk to me on my birthday or post anything because he didn’t want his other girlfriend to see.”
One day, Neyleen’s boyfriend noticed her boyfriend’s Apple Watch buzzing repeatedly with notifications while he was outside their home.
Out of curiosity, she decided to check it up and was mortified to find pictures of a girl in lingerie along with dozens of messages from prostitutes.
She soon found out he had been corresponding with these girls for months and was meeting prostitutes every week since they had started dating.
She said: “I found out he cheated because I had a hunch for a long long time, I am very intuitive and I knew something was off.
"Although I wanted to trust him, I felt like I was getting taken advantage of. Not only financially, but personally because I’m such a loving and caring person.
“One day I was home and he was washing his truck outside, I saw his Apple Watch going off buzzing and buzzing and buzzing.
"I got curious because I saw a small square that looked like a picture of a girls butt in underwear and I opened it.
“In utter shock and disbelief, I find numerous attempts to meet prostitutes at massage parlours, hotels and their home.
“One girl even said ‘I can’t my parents are home’.
“I saw numerous girls sending him pictures on his birthday, and texts from his ex as well.
“I then decided to take the Apple Watch with me and I left the house and parked by a spot with open land close to my house because I could not breathe.
“I kept investigating and I found messages and calls from one specific number, I saw messages saying ‘I wanted to fuck you’ the same day he left me and told me he loved me.
“I saw messages saying how much he missed her and liked her, all while he never acknowledged my presence and often left me with arms wide open when trying to hug him goodbye or hello.
“I found out that he had a whole other girlfriend for several months, side chicks, talking to his ex and meeting with multiple prostitutes weekly.
Neyleen decided to confront her boyfriend at the time, but downplayed her concerns.
After their break up, Neyleen claimed her ex begged her to return and even contacted her friends and family to convince her he had “changed”.
However, Neyleen said she has no plans of going back to him and now hopes move forward with her life on a positive note.
She said: “I am feeling empowered and actually very strong.
“Unfortunately, I can’t say I’ve never had a good relationship or partner because I love too hard and give too easily and conform.
"So, I allow myself to be a doormat, because I didn’t know my worth back then.
“But now I know how indestructible I truly am, and how strong and beautiful I have become.
Neyleen stressed the importance of believing in one’s worth, and advised others to know it is not their fault if their partner cheats.
She said it people's "insecurities" which reflect their behaviour and urged others to focus on loving themselves from within.
She said: “Please know this is not your fault, this is not because of you.
"Cheaters become that way because they have their own insecurities and need fulfilment in the form of other people.
“It’s not your fault, it never was and it never will be.
“They say time heals all, and it is true.
“I used the pain I was in to rebuild myself using the bricks life has thrown at me, and now I’m an indestructible power house.”
She added: “I am learning to move on by truly looking at myself from the inside out and knowing that I was a good person, I was good to him... I was there for him when he had nothing and all he did was take and take.
“I learned that a good heart will always be a good heart, no matter how much people try to destroy it. I know my worth now more than ever.
“In the words of Selena Gomez , ‘I needed to lose you, to love me’.”
