Would you be suspicious?

DP went to a gig in another City with her friend (we are both gay females). This friend is someone she used to be "buddies" with iykwim (friends before then led to other things) then they returned to be friends. Anyway, no previous form in regards to my DP cheating on me or anything.

DP said she would stay at her Dads in the City otherwise it would have cost £60+ for a taxi - fair enough.

Anyway, she text me the next day to say she had lost her shoes and glasses in the gig - the band are pretty heavy and have a bit of a mosh pit scene and she claimed that that is how it happened.

Would you be suspicious of this? Losing SHOES and Glasses?!

What other explanation are you thinking of. Where they shoes that were easy to come/take off or laced up trainers?
What sinister reason could you think of for losing them, I have lost my glasses when I was spectacularly pissed.

um ... Not personally, not at all. The glasses are a problem, they don't come cheap if they are prescription!

NealCaffreysHat Wed 03-Jun-15 16:46:02

Were not where!

Nope, I've been in a mosh pit before and lost sunglasses and most of my jacket (complicated story), losing shoes and glasses would sound totally normal to me.
If there's no previous form of suspicious behaviour and you trust her then I would take her at her word.

Vans trainers. She said she got tugged and one slipped off, as she looked down her glasses slipped off as she was sweating so much from the moshing! She said she dumped the other trainer as it was useless without the other!

I dunno, I hadn't questioned it, just laughed until a friend of mine said she would think it was suspicious. Could have stayed at someones house, one night stand - hurried to leave!

Woah.

No, not at all.

She would have just not mentioned it if it were suspicious.

I have never been in such a hurry I would leave without my shoes confused

I don't think you'd leave a one night stand so quickly that you didn't put on shoes or spex....the mosh pit sounds more likely.

RedKite1985 Wed 03-Jun-15 16:57:42

Lol thanks guys. Like I said, I do trust her. Just a so called friend stirring things up!

Lipgloss74 Wed 03-Jun-15 17:06:04

Probably not, I've come home from my local before without shoes!

LazyLouLou Wed 03-Jun-15 17:15:55

Very much a 'so called friend'. I know who I'd dump smile

Mosh pit sounds more likely as if she'd hooked up with someone surely she'd not have lost her shoes and glasses?

ALaughAMinute Wed 03-Jun-15 18:33:30

I don't understand why you're suspicious. Did she stay at her dad's house as planned or did she stay with her friend?

Losing her glasses and shoes wouldn't give me any reason to be suspicious.

Your 'friend' needs to back off and stop poking her nose in!

FolkGirl Thu 04-Jun-15 03:07:38

Yeah that's a friend who's enjoying the drama of speculation and drama.

I'm very tuned into 'suspicious' and this wouldn't bother me (apart from the cost!)

If there had been a one night stand, outer layer of clothing would be most likely to be remembered, with socks or underwear left behind, not shoes. And yes, totally possible to lose shoes in a mosh pit. I always wore lace up boots, preferably with steel toe caps. Lost loads of earrings and bracelets, sunglasses, wallets etc from that. In fact, hanging around until the end of the gig and cleaning up the mosh pit can be quite profitable.

In my yoof I went to one of them foam party thingys. Lost 1 shoe, my handbag and my pride grin. I too dumped the other shoe. Does not sound suspicious at all to me. Your friend is a shit stirrer.
