Marina Voinova was simply looking for an address on Yandex Panorama, Russia’s version of Google StreetView, when she found an eyeful of much more than she had bargained for.
Russia’s Life News reports that Voinova was looking for an address in Perm when she stumbled across a street shot of her fiancé kissing another woman. Yandex Panorama doesn’t blur the faces, so there was no question that her Sasha was cheating on her.
Ms. Voinova said, “When Sasha came home, I immediately called him to the computer and asked him to find that address in the map. When the image loaded, Sasha’s face changed in color. I looked in his eyes, waiting for an explanation.”
When he couldn’t provide an answer, Voinova dumped him, thank goodness. “At first I regretted searching for that address on the Internet,” Voinova said, “But I eventually realized that it was silly to blame the Web for my boyfriend’s unfaithfulness.” You think? The internet actually saved this woman from marrying a cheater. Let’s shoot the messenger.
According to the video, while Voinova avoids Yandex, Russia’s largest search engine, she has started using the internet for online dating.
Several questions come to mind. Was he in fact her fiancé, or was he her boyfriend? There is a big difference, though cheating should not be a part of either relationship. Why is she now avoiding Yandex? I would be permanently addicted after such an experience. And WHY is she now going the online dating route? It seems to me that there is more of a chance of getting a cheater by hooking up on the internet than there is by dating people you actually know.
In a related story, on August 30 in Japan, an Android smartphone app called Kare Log (“Boyfriend Log”) launched. Now girlfriends can track smartphone GPS data via PC as well as the phone’s remaining battery life and call history. If a boyfriend were cheating, the phone’s location and call history might reveal his deceit. Knowing the battery life could eliminate the “dead battery” excuse. So, guess what, Voinova? Good news! There’s an app for that.
