Man Discovers Creepy Box Hidden In Girlfriend's Closet - Just Like In 'You'

No matter how long you date someone, there are likely things about them you don't know. Sometimes the things are small, like a food they don't enjoy, but sometimes they are big, like really big. That's what happened to the character "Beck" on the hit Lifetime/Netflix series You. *Spoiler Alert* "Beck" was in love with her boyfriend, "Joe," who she thought was the greatest guy ever until she stumbled upon a box hidden in the ceiling of his bathroom that contained some disturbing items which proved "Joe" was actually a sociopathic stalker.

Well something pretty similar happened to a 21-year-old guy and he shared his experience on Reddit, seeking some advice for what he should do. He explained that his girlfriend of over a year left him in her room at school while she went to a lecture, so to pass the time, he rummaged through some of her things. He wound up uncovering a box on top of her wardrobe and what he found in it chilled him to the bone.

Inside the box was an assortment of items, some a little odd but others alarmingly bizarre. The man, who never before noticed anything strange about his girlfriend's behavior, wrote:

"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. Receipts 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 [band-aids] from God knows when. Honestly the things in the box were so random, but I recognized 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."

He ended his post saying, "I don't want to confront her about it as 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."

The comments are filled with people suggesting he break up with her, but also many who think she might be using the items to practice witchcraft. One wrote: "Nail clippings, semen, hair, saliva - all useful in pretty much all types of magic. Clothing and receipts can also be used too (esp. in Romany magic) and the piece of glass possibly has a lip print on it."

Meanwhile, another commenter had a different but very interesting idea:

That person might actually be on to something - the original poster responded revealing that his girlfriend's major is biotechnology.

As yet, the post hasn't been updated but keep an eye on it here.
