“God this is a doozy. I swear my life feels like a movie right now,” wrote an author u/throwra_wheredshego on the relationship_advice subreddit. As he was on a secret mission of picking out a ring for his to-be fiancee and consulting her BFF, the GF seemed to also be up to something.

The couple was soon caught in a web of lies, and the author realized something just didn’t add up. “My girlfriend and I have zero trust issues and we tell each other everything, so this lie is killing me,” the boyfriend wrote as his suspicions grew.

But in an unexpected turn of events, things turned out to be much more wholesome than you’d think. No wonder the story has won the hearts of Reddit!
