There’s nothing like a dramatic story with multiple twist ending updates, and this one from Redditor flowerbandiz is a real rollercoaster. Her story went viral after being shared on Twitter by the account @redditships with this very provocative title:
“My ex turned up last night drunk. Tomorrow is his wedding day. Should I tell his soon-to-be wife?”
My my! Should she?!
The OP says she dated this ex for two years and they didn’t have a great relationship. Eventually, she moved away for school and they broke up. She didn’t really want to be with him anymore anyway. Five years later, she is engaged to a guy she says is her “soulmate” and her ex was scheduled to get married to someone else. Then, around 10 pm on the night before his wedding, he showed up at her door. Very, very drunk.
When my fiance opened the Door my ex just started sobbing saying that he couldn’t believe he (my fiance) was real or some bs like that. We took him into the apartment because he didn’t look dangerous and he just vocally vomited before he actually vomited in our bath.
What I could gather is that he was still very hurt because our break up, that he thinks that we could have made it work. And he regrets treating me badly.
He then threw up again and called an Uber to his hotel.
She said the situation was “surreal” but they did their best to deal with him, giving him some food and coffee and asking him to text when he got back to the hotel. But naturally, she was disturbed by the interaction.
I was left with a weird feeling. Almost dirty. I am thinking of contacting his soon-to-be wife? Or should I call him to encourage him to tell that to his fiancee? Or should I not do anything and let this just be an anecdote for my future?
The response was pretty split because some people didn’t understand why the OP wanted his fiancée to know. Was she bragging? Trying to split them up? In an update she explained, “The reason for me telling her is solely that I would want to know if I was her. Nothing else.”
Ultimately, the OP decided that she shouldn’t contact the fiancée because they don’t really know each other. She ended up contacting her ex’s sister and saying he needs some help.
Then the OP found out he’s disappeared from his sister!
She thanked me for the massage and apologized profusely because my ex has been apparently acting a fool for a few weeks now leading up to his wedding. She asked me if I was okay and if her brother had gone back to the hotel room because they couldn’t find him. I told her he had ubered home and had written us that he had arrived in his room at arround 11:30 pm. She thanked me again and I haven’t heard from her since
In the end, the ex never showed up to his wedding and no one knows where he is.”So me telling the fiancee is now obsolete,” OP concluded. Sometimes things take care of themselves.
