Anyone else watched this show? My WW and I watched most of it Sunday. I didn’t realize the amount of infidelity in the story. It became pretty clear near the beginning of the series that there would be some infidelity, but didn’t realize how much and how messed up the story was.

It was a good series, but I was thinking about it and talked with my WW when we went to bed Sunday. She was a little worried that I would be triggered when infidelity came up but thankfully, it didn’t really bother me, so that’s some progress.

I just finished watching it. It didn't bother me either, maybe because karma was getting the cheaters lol. It does show how it can totally ruin your life and the far reaching effects and collateral damage of the others in your life.

We were watching a series recently and infidelity came up, the WW was making excuses a lot like mine did. I said to the TV “you don’t fix your M with another means dick”. It was one of those things I always wanted to say, but never did. I wasn’t triggered at all because honestly it felt good.

One day you will tell your story how you overcame what you are going through now, and it will become part of someone else’s survival guide.

To me, it seems like every movie has some type of infidelity. It's frustrating. The series that I just watched that sounds similar, in that it destroyed lots of lives was "Dr. Foster" (on Netflix). It was a crazy series with twists and turns, but the whole basis of the show was about cheating.

Stuff like this generally makes me seethe with rage, and I end up leaving the room. Find it impossible not to make some nasty comment to the screen, which WW thinks is directed at her. On some level, she's probably right.

I did manage to get sucked into this one though, and without spoiling the series for someone that may want to watch, it was unclear to me if the killer stumbled upon dead guy's original dating profile, or had created it previously and was just logging in.

I wish that had been a little clearer! To me it seemed like he did sign up and chatted with someone but then stopped.

The writers of the show said the character created the profile, but never acted on it.

No one changes unless they want to. Not if you beg them. Not if you shame them. Not if you use reason, emotion, or tough love. There is only one thing that makes someone change: their own realization that they need to.
