DEAR CHRISTINE – Loser in love
I am 38 years old and I have a big problem. I used to live with a man but we fell out three years ago so we are no longer together.
I then got involved with a man who pursued me; it took me seven months before I talked to him. Now after talking to him for about two months, this man has stopped seeing me without saying anything. The thing is, I grew to love him very much so when he stopped visiting, it really hurt me.
After two weeks I started to talk to another man. The first time this man touched me, I knew it was love. This man also seems to have let me down since it’s been months now that I have not seen him.
Christine, I do not have any luck with men, no matter how I turn or what I do. It is always the same. I am not bad or wild. I am sick and tired of men messing me up all the time.
Can you tell me what you think? It’s not for lack of sex, washing and cooking.
All like now my head is hurting from studying this man; I don’t know what to do.
Don’t give in to despair or become depressed.
It seems you are yet to meet the man who is willing to become your lifetime partner.
I have to be honest and tell you that maybe you’re giving in too easily. Do you think it’s because the sex, washing and cooking are happening too early in the relationship?
While these men may all be fickle, I think you should give yourself a break from relationships and think a little bit about yourself. Why not give Jesus a chance?
Take time to feed your spiritual man, rather than concentrate on the physical. Even Jesus can lead you to that right someone. Next time you fall in love, I hope it will be with someone who has all the qualities you are looking for in a man.
