“My boyfriend and I have been together for almost 10 years”, writes this guy on Reddit. “We have been living together for the past 4 years, and I’d like to say that we’re pretty much integral to the other one’s life at this point.”

But that’s when things went terribly wrong.

“We went on a trip to visit a friend. We were going to stay for a week, and I decided to propose during a hiking trip.

When we reached the top of the mountain, I pulled him aside, spent about 5 minutes on a memorized speech trying to sum up our relationship, got on one knee, and pulled out the ring. I could hear wooing from the crowd, some people even saying kiss kiss.

He… he didn’t say yes. He nervously (?) laughed and he started walking… walking away. I was still holding the box and I tried to get up, but he then started running away. Running away from me.

Someone screamed that I should run after him, but our friend came close and hugged me and didn’t let me go.

I tried contacting him, but to no avail. When I got back to the hotel, his things weren’t there. I called my friend and he told me that I should stay at his place.

The week came and went. I couldn’t put my mind on anything else, despite my friend trying to distract me.

When I finally returned home, all of his belongings were gone; only his keys were there. I still can’t contact him. I’ve tried everything but I can’t get him to talk to me.”
