Girl Accidentally Traumatizes Moth-Phobic Boyfriend By Enclosing Him In Space With Tons Of Butterflies

This girl mistakenly traumatized her now ex-boyfriend by enclosing him in a space with tons of butterflies. The real kicker here is that the poor guy was already deathly afraid of moths. Sounds like things just weren't working out for these two. Can't imagine the look on his face when this happened.

    tifu - Text - My ex-boyfriend was a big fan of grand gestures and surprise dates. He took me to all kinds of cool stuff to surprise me, like an Obon Festival, a special old school Star Trek movie showing, an art museum, even a surprise interstate road trip on my birthday! For his birthday, I resolved to pay him back with his own nice surprise. We had been together for -10 months at that point, so I thought I knew what would suit him: a picnic at beautiful outdoor conservatory, a walk around the

    tifu - Text - conservatory, basically a glass dome filled with lush greenery, flowers, and hundreds of butterfly species flying freely. (Not this specific one, but this video gives you an idea what it's like) I had always gone to the butterfly house with my family as a little kid and I loved it soooo00 much It was special to me and I was so excited to share it with him He was having a great time walking around with me by the lakes and at the picnic. I kept hyping him up, saying "l can't wait unt

    tifu - Text - We got to the entrance, they tore our tickets, and I led him in Belle-at-the-library-in-Beauty-&-the- Beast style. I still won't shut up, trying to get him hyped. Finally, the moment of truth: I took my hands off his eyes and watched him behold the kaleidoscopic beauty surrounding him. Immediately, his face blanched and he looked like someone had just punched him in the stomach. He was cowering and clinging to my arm when a butterfly flew past him. "Umm... are you OK, dear?"

    tifu - Text - "I'm.... fine..." he said with a classic Hide the Pain Harold grimace. "You don't seem fine. Did something happen?" He looked ill and muttered "why would people pay to go to a place people let disgusting bugs land on them". I must have looked hurt because he tried to pull himself together, put on a brave face, and grabbed my arm tight. Before we could even get going any further, he pulled away from and started shouting "OH GOD, IT'S IN YOUR HAIR, IT'S IN YOUR HAIR." Before I could

    tifu - Text - When I finally caught up with him, he had thrown up in the trash can by the duck pond. I apologized profusely and he said it wasn't my fault - his fear of moths/butterflies just hadn't come up in conversation yet. I couldn't have known. We just kind of stared blankly at the pond until he said, "Let's just go home."

    tifu - Text - months before I felt comfortable trying to surprise him again, and surprise surprise, I managed to screw that up too. (it's the Nightmare Redux: Thai Surprise in the comments) TL;DR: I accidentally traumatized my moth- phobic now-ex-boyfriend by enclosing him in a space with hundreds of butterflies.
