A woman from Manchester, England, is selling her 1.35-carat engagement ring on eBay after discovering her fiance is gay.
"So, you know when you're engaged to be married and then suddenly your fiance starts spending a little too much time with his friend, Brad?" the woman wrote in the item description. "And you're like, 'Hey, it's okay, Brad's a great guy. He's pretty buff and he's a laugh and his fashion sense is amazing.'"
She goes on to give a light-hearted recap of the sequence of events that made her realize she would not be getting married to the man she owned a house with.
"So then your fiance starts not coming home at night because he and Brad had a 'wild one' and he comes back walking a little bit like John Wayne at 4 p.m. the next day and you think 'Wow! It must have been a wild one since he can't walk straight anymore. They must have had a lot of good, clean fun together,'" she recalls.
More questions were raised when she found a suitcase full of women's clothing that didn't belong to her.
"But then, whilst unpacking, you find a pair of bright pink stilettos in a size 11 and a long blonde wig and a dress in size Large and a pair of white stockings, all of which definitely are not yours but have been worn and you think, 'Okay, well it could be for Halloween', but it's March?"
Any lingering doubt was removed when her fiance stopped having sex with her, despite the fact that, according to her, she has a backside that "Kim K would insure for [$9 million] by mistaking it for her own."
So the 27-year-old is no longer engaged, although she still lives with her ex-fiance because they can't afford to move.
She describes her current situation as follows: "Single, living with my ex fiance because we're both too skint to move out with a rock the size of Gibraltar on my finger wondering, 'How many other men have I turned?' whilst sharing a tub of ice cream with my dog and screaming 'WHY' at the ceiling."
"The ring is beautiful," she continues. "I mean, Brad probably picked it as he has great taste. But it just reminds me of my failure to grow a penis so I'd like to sell it so I can start my life again. I still have the receipt and the box, as if subconsciously I knew I'd be in my pajamas alone in the middle of the afternoon on a Friday writing this tale on eBay."
"I'm looking for money so I can finish renovating this house so I can either sell the house and move on or be bought out by Brad so they can live happily together," she adds.
The auction ends June 10. So far the ring has received two bids -- one for $5,047 and another for $5,160. A bid for $8,862 was retracted two minutes after it was submitted.
