You may be aware of the scheme called “honey trapping”. The term refers to when romantic and sexual relationships are used to the detriment of one party involved in the affair. It can be used for political, monetary, or personal reasons.The scheme has been carried out countless times by spies, blackmailers and private investigators, but sometimes it is just amateurs who try out the practice. This is the case for Julie, who turned to the YouTube channel To Catch a Cheater to carry out such a scheme.
Normally the channel deals with people hoping to find out whether their partner or family member is a cheater or not, usually by an actress employed to flirt with them and tempt them into committing adultery. But not in this case. When Julie set up her husband for the cheat test, she did so in the hopes that he fall into the trap. But it did not go how she expected it to.Julie is married and looking for a divorce. It is her belief that if she captures her husband cheating, it would be reason enough for her to get a divorce. “We’ve been married a long time,” Julie explained, “every time we get into an argument, he calls me names, he’s verbally abusive. I’m ready for my life to begin”.The scheme starts as it usually would, with an attractive woman named “Kristina” planted to test out the husband. She stands outside his office building and starts up a conversation with him, pretending to be lost in the area. At first her flirtations seem to be working, as she asks him if he goes to the gym and compliments his physique. When she convinces him to feel her toned abs Julie looks like she might get what she wanted.
She asks him if there are any good restaurants in the area, then asks if he wants to join her for dinner that weekend while her friends are away. He politely replies: “No thank you”, and when she persists, he points to the wedding ring on his finger to explain. Julie tilts her head back and moans with frustration; this isn’t going her way.“I’m old enough to be your dad,” he calmly explains. Not one to give up easily, Kristina pursues him after he walks away, slapping him on the rear. It’s at this point he changes his tone completely, pointing to her and saying: “F*ck off little girl! Alright? I said no, I mean it.”For those thinking Julie would have a change of heart when she watched the footage, she was instead disappointed by his actions, or lack thereof. She discusses how their arguments escalate, claiming that “as a god-fearing woman I can’t keep putting up with that.”The host questions whether she would pretend she had cheated to get rid of him, but she refuses, claiming that “as a Christian woman, my reputation is pretty serious”. And when she’s asked whether her God would approve of what they are doing, she answered: “Well absolutely, because God wants me happy”.Not feeling like she had contradicted herself enough, Julie imparts some advice for any rocky relationships at home – communication is key. It seems like she has a strange way of communicating with her husband, however, that’s for sure.For a cheat test that had an entirely different result.
