Love, or at least lust, at first sight, is not unusual, but one British woman is learning how fast it can go wrong.

It started out innocently -- Pippa McKinney was celebrating her birthday at a club when she ran into 'Mr. Right.'

The two hit it off and before the evening was over, Pippa and her mystery boy had shared a few kisses and posed for photos.

But the smitten woman from Stockport accidentally wrote down his number wrong. Not letting Mr. Right pass her by, McKinney posted a photo of them together and appealed to Facebook for help find her mystery man.

Within a day, the post had nearly 14,000 likes and 2,000 comments.

After the post went viral, people began tagging Matty's girlfriend, Emily, in the photo. People soon discovered that Mr. Right was actually the opposite.

As people began to slam Matt for his adultering antics, the two women got in touch discussed their "man."

Pippa updated her status later, scolding all the "judgey" people and saying that there was no bad blood between the two ladies:

"Honestly didn't expect this to happen and my heart well and truly goes out to emily who in fact i have spoken to an [sic] shes lovely."

There was some backlash against Pippa from people who wanted her to take the post down, but the 22-year-old stood her ground, saying, "He shouldn't be a fool then."

When asked if she would ever give him a second chance if he was single, Pippa replied blunty, "No, he's a cheat."

Thanks to social media, it's never been easier to cheat or more difficult to keep your infidelity a secret:
