I’ve been reluctant to write this story time because it borders on all levels of insanity!
Like this incident gets permanent position in my hall of fame for the dumbest thing I’ve ever done.
Soooooooooo I faked my engagement. Hold up now don’t go judging me so quickly…actually judge away because I was straight crazy. I am still adamant that I have a perfectly good explanation…mhmmm maybe a half decent explanation for why I took my craziness to new heights.
The short and simple reason…MY EX BOYFRIEND. *face palms* I am convinced men were created just to drive women to the brink of madness.
Ok so I’ve made a few posts previously talking about my first boyfriend. And that’s because I’ve known him from kindergarten and he was my longest relationship. Now, when we ended the relationship I felt we were on mutual terms. We were young and wanted to explore other options. He’s a cool guy and great first boyfriend. So after the split I continued to talk to him. Sent a few random texts to check if he’s ok. I was living in Tennessee and he was living in Canada. I thought we had so much history the least I could do was find out if he was good. For a year this guy dropped off the map! He went MIA like a rogue secret agent. He didn’t respond to any of my calls or text messages. I wasn’t too pressed that I didn’t hear from him, I just figured he changed his number.
I have this dude on Facebook and Instagram and thought I should just send him a FB message to check if he was at least alive. This same dude that has not posted shit in a fucking year! A few minutes after getting my message, he updates his status to in a relationship and new profile picture was of him and his girlfriend. Now I was drove!😠 He still had not replied to my damn message. I’m like dude I was not messaging you to suck yo dick, but good to know you alive asshole! In this moment was the spiral into crazy lol.
I felt that it was such a low blow. I’ve known this dude too long for him to be treating me like a second class citizen. I would have preferred if he had just said, “hey sharih, you don’t need to check up on me I’m good, living life with my beautiful girlfriend”. I am not a hater I would be happy for him. But for him to ignore me….ooooooo that made me so mad! 😡😡
I figured his girlfriend had a strong influence in his sudden Facebook activity and the rational thing for me to do was just drop it. But nope! I am too petty! You know the saying that the best revenge is success. I thought I had to seem like a hot commodity and that I was living my life quite comfortably without him. So what do I do…fake my engagement and post it on Instagram.🙈🙈🙈
I am laughing my ass off right now because of the lengths I went through just to get a legit engagement ring to flaunt. Cubic zirconia was not going to make the cut and I am not so crazy to go buy my own engagement ring. This was in the summer and Jake and I were just good friends. Jake is such a fucking enabler. [ P.S. It’s good to have friends that will enable the bullshit]. There is no doubt in my mind that Jake doesn’t know that I am certifiably crazy lol. Anyways, he pretended to be my boyfriend so that I could try on rings at Kay Jewelers at the mall. We were so fucking convincible, like I am probably going to hell. The lady assisting believed that we were truly in love. I started crying and she handed me a box of Kleenex. OMG! I am going to hell. I snapped a few pictures of the ring I ended up liking. I wanted to post the picture I took with Jake but I thought I was taking ish too far and I just posted the ring.
I had two of my best friends gas up the post so that he would be convinced it was real. The last thing on my mind was my other followers. My mom called me! My brother! The pastor! Everyone was convinced I was engaged!
Now to add insult to injury. My ex just liked the photo. He freaking just liked it, completely unbothered by my antics. I felt dumb! I don’t know what I was thinking would happen. Was I expecting a phone call? A comment? I just don’t freaking know. I was just dumb and petty and everything backfired. So many people had liked and commented on the photo I had no choice but to leave it. So this photo is just on my insta as constant reminder of my stupidity.
Have y’all ever done anything crazy because of an ex?? I would love to hear you stories! So share in the comment section.😬😬😬😬
