Dear Aunty Lisa
Keep up the good work. I have written to you before, and you helped me so much. I am writing to you about my current situation. I met this guy online. He stays in the UK. He’s in his 40s. He’s very nice, and kind to me.
He has helped me financially. I met him around November of last year, and we are still keeping it strong until now. He promised to come to visit me, but when it is always near the time for him to come, we always fuss over small things and he cancels the trip.
He also promised to carry a phone for me, but because the trip got cancelled I can’t get it. I got frustrated and tired of depending on him. I am a very good saver, so I saved £500 and purchased an iPhone. I didn’t tell him about it. He found out, got upset and he ended the relationship. I wasn’t in a relationship before meeting this guy, and I kept it that way. I haven’t been fooling around with anyone because this guy made sure I had everything for my comfort. Sometimes when he asked if I needed money, I said no because I didn’t want him to think that I was after his money.
I begged him to at least be my friend, but he was upset. Eventually, he came around to talk back to me. I love him so much, and I hope we will meet soon. But I am very concerned because he has a sickness called COPD. He has to have oxygen everywhere he goes. Do you think he can come to Zimbabwe, and it won’t be a problem? I would love to meet him, but I am afraid because of this oxygen thing he has to have with him.
