Finally got past my dislike for men
More than 20 years ago I slept next to a man whom I was seeing for three years, only to have him wake up from my bed and walk down the aisle with another woman a week later.
It took me a long time before I could get over the disappointment. In fact, my mind turned from men altogether and I even had a brief encounter with a member of my own sex.
In a few months’ time I’ll be taking that walk up the aisle. I told my husband-to-be about the episode and he showed me all the love, understanding and affection that a true man would.
I still have memories of the past and I often wonder what I did to deserve that man’s inhumane treatment. Even his relatives turned their backs on me.
Luckily for me, he left the country to take up residence abroad and I never had to run into him again.
I have been hurt really badly in the past, but I am now looking forward to a life of happiness with a man I have grown to love dearly.
I told him that I wanted to write to you about my ordeal as a way of getting it off my chest, and to let your readers know that love does not have to come during their teenaged years; when they are in their twenties, or even in their thirties. I am now 45 years old, and I am much wiser. My husband to be is ten years my senior.
I am writing to encourage others whose hearts have been crushed not to give up on love or give up on finding that special someone. There will always be wolves in sheep’s clothing, but never be fooled by their sweet words or worldly offers. You can enjoy true love, if only you take time to wait and for it to find you.
I am happy for you. Thanks for taking time out to share.
As you embark on your new life try to keep the past out of your head and look forward to the wonderful things which are ahead.
I wish you and your husband-to-be many years of togetherness and love.
