When 22-year-old student Madeleine Jaye started dating Jason in December she thought it was too good to be true. She explained how their first Tinder date, which she expected to last just a few hours, went on well into the night. They ended up in a whirlwind romance which eventually led to a romantic getaway.
But they hit a bump in the road when they were confronted by his pregnant girlfriend and her family at the East Midlands Airport.
Jay explained how it all happened so fast that she couldn’t see the red flags.
“We were talking about the future. We agreed about everything, when we want kids, what we want our lives to be like, what we want our future to be like, and we matched so well. It sounded too good to be true, and that’s because it was,” said Jaye.
“It was a whirlwind romance. The whole thing happened so fast. I didn’t get any sense that something was off. He (pretended to be) very withdrawn, he said he’s not had much luck with women and that he’s been focused on his business but now he’s ready to find someone.”
Jaye and Jason, who claimed he was 32, decided to take a couples’ vacation to Spain. That’s when they were confronted by Jason’s heavily pregnant and very angry girlfriend and her family.
The girlfriend walked up to Jaye and Jason, saying, “I’m his girlfriend, I’m giving birth in two weeks.” Jaye also recalled that her parents were “shoving a camera in (Jason’s) face” and “shouting at me.”
“I went into shock, like full-body shock. I’ve never felt anything like it. I was not expecting it in the slightest. I was there thinking we were going to get married, and this is the guy for me, and all of a sudden, he’s got this wholly different life behind my back,” Jaye said.
Jaye said the girlfriend later reached out to her to tell her she is not the first woman he cheated on her with. She also told her he was actually 37.
The student also found out he lied about his last name. When she found him on Facebook, she saw he had posted pictures of himself with his girlfriend.
She also discovered he had a son he never told her about.
Jaye revealed that Jason tried to contact her later to explain that his ex was mentally unstable.
“He lied to me and said it was a crazy ex who has mental problems who trapped him with a kid. Then he started trying to gaslight me and said that I of all people should understand the emotional stress he’s been going through,” she said.
Jaye has since deleted her Tinder account and says, “I feel like I have no trust in any man now really.”
She also issued a warning to other single women stating, “If it’s too good to be true, it probably will be. And always trust your gut.”
