About a year ago I relocated to the Delco area / Brookhaven, Pennsylvania from the city of Wilmington, Delaware. I came here to live with my boyfriend (Felix) of a year and a half. It's difficult to live in a new and unfamiliar city. I'm not near my circle of life long friends. Felix's friends have become my friends.
Mid/end of April we were all enjoying a BBQ together at Felix's best friend's house. The couple that own the house and invited us over are Hogan and Gina.
After eating and relaxing for an hour or so with other mutual friends, Gina politely asked me to go outside with her so we could talk. Gina is in management at a popular high end clothing store in a big mall nearby.
She became very serious and asked me why I came into her store, tried on a bunch of size six clothing (my size exactly), trashed the fitting room and never even bothered to say hello. I told her I didn't go to her store at all and the Saturday she claimed I was out shopping I was actually with Felix. Gina gradually became flustered and demanded to know why I would lie right to her face. She said I told another store associate my name. She asked me how it could be a different Adelaide with blonde hair exactly like mine who wears the same size clothing. I told her I don't know how that could have happened and there was no way it was me.
I told her being new to the area I did not even know how to get to the mall she worked at without getting lost nor did I ever have the money to even step foot in such an expensive store.
Things escalated. Gina became extremely upset and strongly felt I was blatantly lying to her. I became more upset trying to defend myself. She eventually began charging at me and threatened to call the police if I did not leave immediately.
I had a complete emotional meltdown and began uncontrollably crying. Everyone agreed Gina was very mad and I should go. I left and continued to cry myself to sleep. Dealing with the loss of what little new friendships I had in a new town was tough.
Felix had my back from the start. All along he told Gina I was nowhere near her store. Not long after I left he came home very mad. He said he told everyone it was not right to kick me out and he was sorry I was so upset. (Editor's Note: Irrelevant personal information deleted.) I am currently 14 weeks pregnant with both of our first child... About a month and a half after that night I found out I was pregnant. Currently we are overjoyed to be parents.
It's been a very happy and slightly scary experience so far. Just earlier tonight I learned doppelganger had a paranormal definition. I always just thought it was a funny term to describe people who look a like. I'd like to think I'm not a very spiritual person but I just don't know at this point. Since I have little experience with any of this I thought someone else out there may.
