Today in the opening issue of a series, "I read this terrible thing today, so now you have to" (I am mainly joking), I have discovered the story of a man on Valentine's Day as a surprise for his girlfriend's own fingertip section. I could not stop thinking about this story, so please share this horror with me. It will be fun. Probably.
My story begins with r / relations, a reddit community where people anonymously ask for advice about their relationships. The only accepted identity traits are gender and age – I would be 28 / F for example. Among the notorious contributions to relationships in the past include " My [29/F] BF [32 M] has my Hamilton cards "given away." " and " I (34F) with my BF (41
With a so-called "disposable account" – an account created specifically to publish a particular story to ensure absolute anonymity – a Reddit user has published a story under the slogan: "My [22F] Friend [24M] Cut your fingertip to make a "joke" for my Valentine's Day present. "
Yes, it caught my attention as well.
The 22-year-old friend, 24, tells the story," Surprised Chandler from Friends Chandler is played by Matthew Perry, who himself lost the top of the middle finger of his right hand after being a toddler in his right hand (The character of Chandler also lost the tip of his toe in Thanksgiving in the fifth season, but that has nothing to do with this story e? i think?)
Wrote the anonymous redditor: "Guys, there were 0 red flags. He was SO normal. He was a fucking chess player. He liked to go to the bar. He studied to be a legal assistant.
In short, here is the story:
I do not know what to do, I'm scared to tell my friends or family about it, I've been with Gray for 4 months, he's funny, smart and treats me very well, I'm finishing my final semester of graduation, so I was in school (3 hours from home where we met) and I did not have a weekend to get home anymore two majors and a minor and working part-time at my school, I was finally able to make a difference and came home this weekend to party with him.
An important treat: I love my friends, it's my favorite show, I know that it's sort of stupid, but I just do it, I have posters, I called my hamsters Chick and Duck (a thing from the show) and Phoebe inspired me to dye my hair and become vegetarian, Gray knows that and of course teased that one of my Gesch enke about Valentine's Day friends were. Not romantic, but anyway, cool! I come to his house and hold a teddy bear, a bag of chocolate, an expensive tie he mentioned when shopping, and a card.
So. Gray extends his hand and says: "HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!" It took a second. But then I noticed. The tip of his index finger was gone. I obviously asked what happened, and he rolled his eyes and said, "I think someone is not that big of a fan" or anything. It really did not click. I just asked him once more how he hurt himself. I was so worried and tried to grab his hand and he pushed me away and said it was still sensitive.
He took the presents from me, kissed my cheek, and told me to come to his room. I did, and he pulled up his laptop and went to his bookmarks. There was an enlarged picture of Chandler (one of the main characters) and his hand. And he lacked a fingertip.
It clicked. The actor who plays Chandler cut his fingertip in an accident before he became famous. There were a few moments of calm before he put his hand back in my face and grinned. I asked Gray what he did it for. He said he knew I loved the show and thought it was a funny story about literally cutting off one limb for Valentine's Day (???)
The wound was still … kinda fresh? It looked sewn together, I think I did not really enjoy it. But it definitely lacks a literal FINGER. TOP. I became quiet. He asked why I was not happy and seemed very confused, so I told him I forgot I had to call my mother and pretended to go to the bathroom. Instead, I booked it.
It's a day, he's called me about a dozen times, sent me texts that say it did not even hurt, and he's okay and asks us to talk about it. Guys, there were 0 red flags. He was so normal. He was a fucking chess player. He liked it to do a few little things. He studies to be a paralegal. I do not know what to do. I have the feeling that all the romantic inclinations that I had towards him have become extinct. I'm really scared to be honest. He told me that he loved me a few weeks ago, and I built up the self-confidence to say it back. Now I feel sick. Can I part with someone? I literally can not even imagine telling anyone. I'm so embarrassed.
W.H.A.T. I repeat: WHAT
