A woman revealed her unforeseen Halloween scare she suffered through this year.
It was a Halloween to remember for the worst reasons, after discovering that her partner of eight years had been cheating on her. What’s more, it was her partner’s fancy costume that betrayed him.
The woman had long suspected that her boyfriend could have been involved in mischief behind her back, but was constantly reassured by friends and family because he ‘seemed like a great guy’.
Her suspicions were confirmed in the most terrible way. A close friend of the woman told Reddit readers that she had brought her along to a Halloween party she’d been invited to, given that her boyfriend, a police officer, had been ‘called in to work’.
The 22-year-old woman was looking forward to spending the weekend alongside close friends and her long-term boyfriend, enjoying the Halloween party.
The boyfriend, according to him, was unable to take part in the couples’ costume party that his girlfriend had arranged.
The unnamed friend wrote on the social media app that around 1 a.m. on the night of the party, the man ‘just sort of appeared in the crowd’ alongside another woman.
“When I saw the red football jersey my heart sank,” she wrote. “Because about a minute later a girl dressed up as Taylor Swift came up and held his hand. My friend saw it and she immediately ran for a bathroom sobbing.”
Understandably fluctuating between heartbreak and pure rage, the friend recalls the girlfriend repeatedly demanding to go and confront her cheating boyfriend. She was, however stopped out of concern that ‘she was going to do something that would end her up in jail’.
The friend eventually decided to ask for the help of her colleague, also attending the last-minute party, to encourage the girlfriend to leave the party immediately.
“We ended up dragging her out,” she wrote. “And she made such a scene that her boyfriend finally noticed she was at the party and he took off like a scared rabbit.”
The friend then added that her friendship with the girlfriend had been actually destroyed by the gut-wrenching incident.
“She called me a horrible friend for not believing her for the past few weeks,” the friend penned. “I said I was so sorry. She said I’m a major a*****e for making her leave because she could have caught him in the act and made a clean break.”
She added: “I said she was scaring me with how she was talking in the bathroom. She said she’s an adult and can make her own choices. She said it’s going to be a long time before she can forgive me and left and I think she’s blocked me on everything.
“I feel bad for the whole situation and I feel bad that I may have made the wrong decision.”
