Was It My Doppelganger That My Friend Saw?


My close friend, (who I'm going to call Ruby for privacy reasons), has noticed something strange about me. Earlier this afternoon, Ruby told me that something very strange had happened whilst she was at my house two weeks ago. Apparently, I had been downstairs the whole time whilst she was upstairs, and I know this as when she got downstairs, she asked me if I had gone upstairs at all - which I hadn't. What she told me was: she saw shadows moving around from underneath the closed door of my room, and she thought that that was strange as she thought I was downstairs. When she opened the door she saw that no-one was there. Then she went to the toilet, and whilst she was in there she heard my voice say: 'Ruby, I'm in the guitar room' and she also heard me play the guitar, more specifically Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin and Wanted Dead or Alive by Bon Jovi, which is strange as I would never usually call the spare room (where my guitar lives) the guitar room, and those two songs are songs that I have known how to play for a long time, and play quite frequently. So, she came to see me in the guitar room, and saw me, except it wasn't quite me... According to her, it disappeared a few seconds after she saw it, and it was wearing my clothes and the whole of its eyes were black, even the white, and I have green eyes! Also, it had the long hair that I used to have, which is wrong as I had my hair cut a few months ago. It just seemed like a replica of me, but not quite right.

I feel really creeped out as it was not just then, but apparently she sees it every day... And I haven't been able to see it, not even today even when she pointed it out to me in front of me (although maybe that's because I'm short sighted and I hate wearing my glasses). According to her, it was like she had a mental block and couldn't remember it until I specifically asked her, as we were having a discussion on the topic last period at school. We made our way to the bus stop after school, and whilst we were walking across the park she pointed it out to me, saying: that's it! And we ran towards it. I couldn't see it as it was quite a distance away, but according to her it was standing in the middle of the road, facing away from us, wearing my school uniform and bag. It only disappeared when a taxi drove through it. Then, when I was about to get off the bus, Ruby spaced out, and I heard my own voice, but eerily different, calling my friend's name, in a haunting tone, the kind that sends shivers down your spine. When she snapped out of her daydream, she was surprised to see me, and said: Didn't you just get off the bus? I hadn't gotten off the bus but she was sure she saw me get off the bus.

I don't know if it was a doppelganger, but whatever it is, I have no idea what it is and I don't think my friend is going crazy as I have seen with my own eyes what she sees sometimes, although I can't see my 'doppelganger'. She's not the only person that has seen weird things concerning me, other people have told me they have seen something not quite human standing behind me, behind my left shoulder. Nothing has ever attempted to talk to me, just watch me. All the time, and I feel it behind me. What are your thoughts?

Thank you for your feedback. I am aware that my friend may be pulling my leg, as I always am afraid, but if she is pulling my leg then she has been for about 2 years and I trust her enough to believe what she says. To be honest, although I am a little freaked out, I'm just going to forget about it, as she hasn't mentioned it and it hasn't tried to cause me any harm. And no, I have not experimented with psychedelic drugs.

Hey,I had a really recent experience when I was in bed. My partner was in the bathroom & I was abruptly awoken by him complaining about our upstair neighbours making a noise (kind of ironic that he was the 1 that woke me up with his noise not the neighbours). I saw stood in the doorway of the bedroom... Em well it was me. I didn't get scared which actually shocks me. I don't know if being awoken abruptly meant I wasn't really inside my body at the time but if that was so wouldn't I have seen myself lying in bed instead?Anyways, I have heard a lot about doppelgangers & the legend that surrounds it. So reading your story was interesting.

I hope you comment again soon & let us know your answer to the questions others have asked you about wether your friends a sensitive, or you've experienced astral projection before etc...

I do have to say i'm aware your a teen & although you've shown great belief in your friend & what she says, the mother in me kind of wants to make sure shes not misleading you. Now i'm not saying shes made up the whole thing as you say you've shared experiences with her. Its just something i'd like you to consider. A true believer always embraces their inner sceptic.

I hope you find an explanation. ❤ 😊

That's an interesting story. I saw a replica of myself once which was very erie. Me and my friend were in a club. We were sitting at a table drinking and I saw my 'double'. From where we were sitting we could just see her walking around and that. It was around 1990 and I was wearing a dark blue skirt suit, with my hair in a curly bob and this person was wearing the exact same clothes and had the same mannerisms as me. The strange thing was that me and my friend didn't even comment on it to each other although it was staring us in the face. It was like we both noticed her but we never spoke about it and she was in front of us all night. I don't know whether we were just embarased about it or what.

Just questions. Do you or have you astral projected before, or experimented with doing it?

Is your friend psychic or sensitive? Is she aware of it in other contexts, or just around you?

Do you or did you ever have a twin?

And lastly--and no offense is meant--have you experimented with psychdelic drugs ever?
