A man is freaked out after finding his girlfriend’s ‘creepy box’ as she was off to University for a lecture. Now he doesn’t know how to react around her anymore.
Here’s his story: “We have been together for just over a year and we have never had any issues apart from minor arguments that were easily resolved. Up until recently I have never noticed anything strange about her behaviour. A few days ago she left her room at uni to go to a lecture in the morning and left me in there. Up until that day I had never looked through her things as I’ve never felt the need to. She has this space above the wardrobe where she keeps boxes and stuff and I couldn’t see inside them. Boredom got the better of me and I wanted to see what she was storing.”
“So I found a box at the back which was like a Ted Baker cardboard box that a handbag had come in or something, and when I opened it I found so many random things that I used to own. There were odd socks in there that she has taken. A toothbrush that I thought I had lost after our holiday. Bits of hair from (presumably) my comb. Toe nail clippings. Reciepts that I assume she stole from my wallet. She even has things like empty wrappers of food that I know we’re mine. There was a piece of glass in there but I don’t know where that is from. A USB phone charger. A half used bar of soap. Boxer shorts. Used gum. A spoon. Used plasters from God knows when.”
“Honestly the things in the box were so random, but I recognised a lot of little bits that had gone missing over the past year. The most worrying thing was a used condom I found in there. I don’t even know how she managed to keep that? And a few empty condom wrappers as well. I even found a little tablet in there that looked a lot like my antibiotics that I took for my tonsils before Christmas. And I definitely remember losing one of my last dosage.”
“I can’t remember what else because I just put it back and left. She doesn’t know I found it yet. My girlfriend behaves normally and this is the first time I’ve seen anything weird. She has never acted obsessive or creepy or anything. I don’t want to confront her about it because she will know I was looking through her things. But then again, what else am I supposed to do? I love her so much but I am genuinely scared. I have been sat here trying so hard to come up with logical explanations as to why she is doing this. Any ideas?”
