A guy in England posted on Reddit last week about a MASSIVE problem he created for himself: he has a girlfriend, but he's been cheating on her with one of his coworkers. He was planning to dump his girlfriend and PROPOSE to the colleague.
But on New Year's Eve, things changed.
He explained, "I'm seeing someone else, wanted to break up with her. I bought the ring for a work colleague, wasn't planning to propose until the holiday we planned.
“During New Year's Eve, I proposed to my girlfriend. It's been posted on my friends’ Snapchat, my girlfriend’s Facebook page, everywhere.
“I saw people proposing so I wanted to go with the flow and proposed to my girlfriend whilst partially p*****.
"Can I get the ring back and cancel the engagement please?”
After lots of people called him an idiot, he posted an update . . .
"I've had a long and hard think to myself, I decided to hand in my 4 week notice to my boss and start afresh. I think it's best my girlfriend doesn't find out about the affair I've been having so I've spoke to my colleague and told her I'm not going on holiday with her and I've ended it with her. I've known my girlfriend longer and my mum gave me a call saying she's happy and she's always wanted grandchildren and what not so I didn't want to disappoint my mum. I'm going to marry my girlfriend. She already planned out the wedding venue on her MacBook, she hid it from me, so I didn't want to upset her. Genuinely I feel bad if I were to break up with her, she's been buzzing all day calling all her friends saying she's getting married and taking photos of her ring etc. I think it's the right thing to do. Just worried that my colleague will somehow get a hold of my girlfriend and tell her about the times we've slept together. That's my final decision and I think I'll stick to that.
edit; can journalists please stop asking for interviews. i am not happy to go public for a very obvious reason."
Yikes. Good luck with that.
