A Reddit user took to the social media app to describe how horribly her year started. She shared the most embarrassing moment that happened to her on New Year’s Eve, after her partner of six years absconded halfway through a marriage proposal to her.
Read what she wrote below:
“We had talked about getting married, and I always said I wanted a proposal in front of a few close friends/family members. He agreed, and thought the sentiment was nice,”
oftestroksy’s story began.
“Our anniversary is New Year’s Eve and a friend was hosting a party with a handful of our other mutual friends. I kind of knew what was coming up. He was jittery and nervous, acting super awkward the whole night.”
After dropping to one knee and not popping the question, the boyfriend in question fled the scene and hasn’t been heard from since.
“Right at 11:59, he gets down on one knee, but he didn’t say anything. He just stared at me, and kept opening and closing his mouth like he was trying to say something. I knew it was happening, and I was just so excited. I was crying, our friends were gasping.
“At midnight, the ball dropped on the TV , and we all heard the cheering, and my boyfriend shook his head and got up, and told me, ‘I’m sorry. I’m really sorry. I just can’t do this.’ And he left.
“I’ve never felt more embarrassed in my life. That was supposed to be the happiest moment of our lives, shared with our friends. If he hadn’t wanted to propose, I wouldn’t care if he just didn’t. I wouldn’t care if he told me. I wouldn’t care. I want to spend my life with him, and if that meant not getting engaged and married, I wouldn’t care”.
“What I care about is him getting on one knee, watching me cry and look so excited, then tell me he ‘can’t do this.’ I feel like it’s almost my fault. I mean, did I ask for too much?”
As if that wasn’t bad enough, using the location tool on Snapchat, the jilted woman was able to pinpoint the location of her boyfriend and it was a place she didnt recognize, so she asked a mutual friend of hers if they knew the location, but their friend refused to tell her, saying they were sworn to secrecy.
“I didn’t recognize the intersection, so I sent it to a friend, who said they were sworn to secrecy by my BF. Nobody else knew. I’m feeling really paranoid. Is it an ex’s place? Just a buddy’s house? I don’t want to sound like a stalker, but I’ve been watching him on the map, just feeling endlessly betrayed by him.”
“He hasn’t called, hasn’t texted, hasn’t emailed, hasn’t even snail mailed. I miss him. I went into 2018 alone and confused and scared, and it’s just stayed that way ever since. I feel like he owes me at least half an apology. I’ve texted him, called him, done my part- and he always reads it (he has read receipts on) or declines the call. I’m so worn out. He’s trying to ghost me, it feels like.
“I don’t think I can do that with the man I’ve lived with for four years now, or the man that I’ve dedicated my life to for six years. What should I do?”
What do you think she should do?
