"My ex left me for my best friend in October 2021. They are married and have a kid together. It hurt me, but I think it's perfect time to move on," he said.

The soft-spoken guy revealed he matched with a lady identified as Wambo in March, and after six weeks of chatting, they planned to meet.

"She told me she was a model and works with local companies especially in doing promotions. I was attracted to her beauty and her slender body drove me crazy. I invited her to my house one Saturday evening and we had a great time," he narrated.

Otieno said they woke up the following morning at around 11 am, and he headed to the kitchen to clean dishes and prepare breakfast for Wambo while she took a shower.

"After 20 minutes in the bathroom, I came out and she was nowhere to be seen. I tried to call her but her phone number was off. I checked the drawer where I used to keep mother and other valuables and my Ksh70k I had withdrawn to pay rent and other bills was missing My newly purchased Samsung gear watch was also missing," he narrated.

Otieno said he was shocked by what Wambo did, and when he sent her a message on Tinder, she threatened to report him to the police and claim he forced himself on her.

"She blocked me everywhere and it hurts me when I think about her. I'm yet to pay this month's rent and have been avoiding calls from my landlord. I will never again go online looking for a soulmate, once I heal from the heartbreak, I will start going to church because I'm convinced I'll find my life partner there," he said.

Otieno said he deleted the Tinder app from his phone, advising men not to be deceived by beauty.
