A man took to social media to seek advice after learning his girlfriend lied about her location at the very moment he was picking out an engagement ring with the help of her best friend.

The 28-year-old man shared on Reddit that he was planning to propose to his 26-year-old girlfriend, who he had been dating for three years, and had sought out her best friend “Justine” to help him pick out the perfect stone to pop the question. Sadly, things doest not happen how he expected them to!

Following a ton of comments advising the conflicted man to “just leave,” implying that “she’s cheating” and “it’s over”.


I know you say you can’t tell her why you know, but I honestly think you should. You don’t want this to bug you forever and propose to a girl that could be potentially hiding something. Just say you were hanging out with Justine because you need help with a gift, so you know she wasn’t with her. And see what she says. Trust and communication are important and it would suck to know you propose to a girl who could be doing you wrong, but also just as bad to sit there and let that lie eat you alive.


Doesn't have to be "the ring" you were shopping for - you can tell her that you asked Justine for her input on a gift for you and she was standing next to you when the text came in.

However, what do you think the chances are Justine has not already tipped her off that you know she lied and has given her time to prep a story?


Justine, while being my girlfriend's best friend, is someone I consider trustworthy and she's a very mutual friend of ours. Besides, I know she's very non-confrontational and wouldn't want to get involved. I highly doubt she mentioned anything to my girl. She mostly likes to stay out of things that don't directly involve her


Honestly, I don’t understand this. I would’ve texted her right away that Justine was with me picking out a present for her. You’re thinking of marrying this girl, but too scared to talk to her? Also, have you two talked about getting married? Because I think the only thing that should be a surprise is when he proposes, not that he is going to be proposing.


How are you going to maintain a trusting relationship in marriage if you can't bring this up now? Dude quit it with this "too scared" stuff. Cheating is scarier than ruining a surprise. A divorce is scarier. "Justine was shopping with me." You don't have to justify further, but if she asks, just tell her.


How about something simple like " I know you weren't with Justine yesterday. What's going on?"

If she doubles down on Justine the simply say that you know she wasnt. Who was she with?

If she gets in your face and insists then you should know that your relationship is in serious trouble. So serious that you then confirm that you were with Justine yesterday. Where were you and why are you lying to me about it?

If she diverts at all about what were you doing with Justine...then you tell her i was getting her help to picknout and engagement ring for us. But now i'm thinking im an idiot for doing that.

Then get up...ask her to get her story straight and leave until she comes clean.

Warning...she may try to make it some kind of surprise for but verify.

If shes cheating then you have matrixed yourself out of a bullet.


Be honest. "I asked Justine to help me pick out a gift for you. I was with her when you said she was with you. Why did you say that if it wasn't true?"

Your statement "My girlfriend and I have zero trust issues and we tell each other everything, so this lie is killing me" is an oxymoron. You now have a major trust issue that SHE caused. Accept this, and don't start lying to protect this false image you have of her in your head. Hopefully the truth isn't that bad, but what's worse is letting your anxiety eat you alive. It's time to be strong and face the truth, whatever it may be.
