Greg O’Shea says both exes were “seeing people behind my back”

Poor Greg.

Greg O’Shea has revealed that his last two girlfriends were seeing other people “behind his back.”

The Love Island winner admitted that he hasn’t spoken to either of his exes since they broke up, and both didn’t end on good terms.

Speaking to Charleen Murphy and Ellie Kelly on their Hold My Drink podcast, the Limerick native said: “Before my last relationship, I was with a girl for four years, and I was so emotionally invested in it to the point I was going to propose to her.”

“I was head over heels in love with her… This was before Love Island.

“We haven’t spoken since the day we broke up… It’s a long story… We might as well be dead to each other. We don’t speak in any way, either of [my exes].

“The long story is both of them were seeing people behind my back. Both of them, it happened twice.

“I’d be civil to them if I saw them, but that’s why I’m exhausted with women. I can’t do it again. It’s so much emotional investment, and then to get burnt twice.”

Admitting that he wants to have a girlfriend again, he is not ready to get back into the dating field and was left heartbroken with the end of his last relationship.

The former rugby star said: “I’m really traditional, I love having a girlfriend. I love having one girl I care about and taking care of her. And all my mates are getting engaged, getting houses, and I’d really like that but I haven’t found someone to do that with yet.

“I’ve never done any dating apps, it’s never been my thing… I’m much more like walk up to someone and ask them out, which really takes girls aback nowadays.

“So yeah I haven’t gotten back into the dating world just yet… I’m exhausted.”
