A man stumbled upon revealing pictures of his girlfriend, who used to be a lingerie model before becoming a teacher.
I’m in a tough spot right now and I’m not sure if I’m the AH or not. My girlfriend (27F) (let’s call her Sarah) and I (26M) have been together for three years. She’s always been passionate about her job as a teacher and has worked really hard to build up her career.
However, a few weeks ago, I accidentally stumbled upon some photos of Sarah on Instagram that I had never seen before. They were pictures of her in some very revealing clothing, and some of them were even nude. I was shocked and confronted her about it, and she told me that she used to be a lingerie model before becoming a teacher. She said she stopped doing it because she didn’t want it to affect her career, and she thought I knew about it already.
I didn’t know how to react at first, but eventually, I told a few of my friends about it. One of my friends is a gossip and ended up telling someone who works at the school where Sarah teaches. Long story short, the photos somehow got into the hands of the school board, and Sarah was fired for “unprofessional behavior”.
Sarah is devastated and blames me for ruining her career. She says that I should have kept my mouth shut and that I betrayed her trust. I feel terrible about what happened, but I didn’t know that it would lead to this. Am I A Jerk for accidentally ruining my girlfriend’s career?
