It's interesting that a shadow figure seems to be involved with the sighting of your doppelganger. A couple of years ago, I encountered my
husband's doppelganger in our house late at night.
I wonder what the purpose is behind their imitating of people?
I've had the SAME thing happen to me a few years ago, and it freaked me out BIG time. The first time I had this encounter, I saw my younger sister
sitting in front of the TV watching cartoons in broad daylight, two feet in front of me. I had just got out of the shower. It was morning. I was
standing behind her drying my hair off with a towel and I was talking to her. I asked her "What are you watching?" She didn't respond. I asked
again, but again she didn't respond. That's when she got up and started walking toward a different bathroom. To my surprise she walked right into
the closet. I laughed and asked "What are you doing???" I walked after her, opened the closet door and she was nowhere in sight. I thought I was
going nuts. That's when I look in the other direction and see her walking from the kitchen into the hallway, and into the room. I was shocked and
told her what I had just seen. There was no way in hell she could have gone from the closet into the kitchen. Impossible. We were both stunned. What I
realized then is that the thing pretending to be my sister was wearing similar clothing and looked the same from the back, but I never saw it's face.
The second time this happened it was in the same room. I was in bed trying to go to sleep. I was listening to music with my headphones on in the dark,
propped up against the wall. Suddenly I hear this silly lion roar, as if my sister had made the sound intentionally. I took my headphones off, laughed
and checked to see if she was awake. She was asleep. I didn't think much of it, just got back into bed and put my headphones back on. Suddenly I felt
the bed move on the other end. I opened my eyes and saw a friend of mine sitting at the edge. It wasn't uncommon that he and his family would come
out to visit later in the evening. I took my headphones off and said "Hi!" It didn't respond, it was just looking at me. I repeated "Aren't you
going to say hi back?" That's when the thing lunged at me and all I could see was a face screaming at me, it's mouth open, maybe 15 inches away
from my face. It looked like it was made out of water, which I thought was very weird. I got so freaked out by this that I immediately jumped out of
bed, turned on all the lights and ran to my parents to tell them what happened. I couldn't sleep for the rest of the week with the lights off, and as
long as we lived there I couldn't look in that direction when I tried to fall asleep, always afraid I'd see something again. I had never been so
scared in all my life.
The third time this happened it wasn't as frightening or as clear as the other two times. It was a little bit more than out of the corner of my eye.
I was in the kitchen. I was preparing some food when I saw my (now) ex walking past the kitchen and into the living room. The hallway was lit only by
whatever kitchen light was able to break through. It was enough to see someone's features. I asked him if he wanted something to eat. He didn't
respond, so I went toward the living room to ask again. He wasn't in there. Nobody was in there. Shocked me a little, but compared to the other two
experiences this one was no big deal. I then saw him walking out of the bedroom and through the hallway. I asked "weren't you just in here???" He
said no. I knew it was true, because he wouldn't have been able to walk in and out without me seeing him. Couldn't miss him, he was a big guy.
To the O.P., that is one strange story. Other than my three experiences with doppelgangers unfortunately I have nothing useful to add. What your
friends saw in your girlfriend's room could have been what I saw those three times. Although I've had more than a few "strange" encounters with
what some might call the supernatural, I sometimes have a hard time believing in it myself. Two out of those three times I was as awake as one can be,
but the eyes can play tricks I suppose.
It's better when multiple witnesses are present. I hope you solve that mystery. I'm sure I speak for
everyone when I say I'm curious about the outcome.
P.S. I see some people mentioning Ouija boards. Maybe it's a coincidence, but during the two most vivid encounters there was a Ouija board present.
It was stored in the closet since we didn't use it much. It got boring real quick. My mom had bought it for us. It was a cheesy set and we did mess
around with it once or twice the way kids do, but nothing serious. The third time around I no longer had the thing anywhere in the house. I
didn't/don't really believe in Ouija boards, but I have to note that it was present during two of the most vivid and scary experiences of my life
thus far. I also recall having very vivid dreams about fighting the devil for a month straight maybe a few months later. That was interesting to say
the least. Lol.
