The chances are, if you've used any kind of dating app, you will have at some point come across an ex. Do you swipe left or right? It's a question that's dogged mankind for millennia.

Now, we all know how awkward that can be, but how about coming across your current girlfriend or boyfriend on there and matching with them?

Well, that's exactly what happened to one 'lonely' guy who decided to download Tinder while his wife was away on a 'business trip'.

Sharing his story to Reddit, the anonymous man said they had met on the app three years earlier and had been married 'quite happily for over 14 months now'.

He wrote: "A month ago she left on a business trip for a week and I found myself downloading Tinder on a particularly lonely night. I don't even know why. I didn't have any intentions. But I did it.

The husband said he downloaded the dating app while his wife was away on business.

"On Monday my wife left for another business trip. Last night I once again downloaded Tinder and started swiping. Again, I had a laugh, but ultimately was bored of it.

"Then I saw her picture come up. I say shocked for a moment. I wondered if I should just delete it and pretend nothing happened. I thought maybe a bot stole her picture.... But I read her profile... it's her. It's her now and it's her live. There's even a picture of her where I am cut out.

"I decided to make a bold move and swipe right. I swiped and we matched."

The devastated husband then had the sudden realisation that he would have to bring it up with his wife when she got back from her trip.

He added: "I'm going to confront her then. I don't even know how this is happening. She's over 100 miles. Is a friend of hers using her account??

"Now I have to explain why I was on Tinder. This is just a huge can of worms that got opened. What the hell do I do?"

Some users think his wife was trying to catch him out.

Unsurprisingly, he found very little sympathy among fellow Redditors, with some claiming his wife may not have been on a 'business trip' at all.

While others suggested that maybe his wife had joined Tinder to catch him in the act after being tipped off by a friend.

"I think someone told her he was on there and she was trying to catch him out to see if he tries cheating every time she is out of town," said a second user.

While another added: "Honestly, what probably happened is that someone she knows or one of her friends saw you on tinder the FIRST time you went on, so she decided to investigate for herself."

A third person simply put: "You guys seem perfect for one another."

I think we can all agree on that.
