A bride-to-be's gloating open letter to her fiancé's high school girlfriend has gone viral after it was branded 'scary' by readers, the Daily Mail reports.
In a piece called "You May Have Worn The Prom Dress With Him, But I Get To Wear The Wedding Dress" published on The Odyssey, student Victoria Higgins admitted to being jealous of the girl her husband-to-be took to his prom - but bragged about being the woman who gets to marry him.
Victoria, thought to be a student at Missouri State University, wrote: "I wish that I could say I'm sorry it didn't work out for you, but I can't", adding that it "kills her" that she didn't know her partner in high school and get to cheer him on at sports matches.
Her letter has now gone viral, with startled readers calling the bride-to-be a "bunny boiler" on social media.
In the story, Higgins wrote that while many teenage girls think they will marry their high school boyfriends, she was the one to whom the unnamed woman's prom date had eventually popped the question.
She said: "You had your time, and now I get the wedding. You got to dress up in high school, but I get to dress up for my wedding with him.
"He may have put a corsage on your wrist, but he will be putting the wedding ring on my finger."
Despite her pride at being the one who got to marry the unnamed man, she admitted to experiencing huge jealousy at now sharing the milestones of a teenage romance with him.
She wrote: "It kills me that I couldn't be there for him because I know I would have actually been there wholeheartedly. I would have done it out of love, not as a popularity appearance."
Higgins told the ex girlfriend that she wasn't "sorry" that she didn't get to end up with the man she's marrying, but assured her that she would "find someone too".
The article has now been shared thousands of times on social media by users who mocked Higgins' "scary" attitude towards her fiancé's ex.
One tweeted: "Jesus Christ, don't even have to read the article. The title alone screams 'bunny boiler'."
"He needs to run! RUN FOR HIS LIFE!!!" another posted.
A third said: "This piece is one example of why I sometimes think, in all seriousness, that the minimum age for marriage should be 30."
"She sounds like she's 1 break up away from being a bunny boiler," another agreed.
