Dear Aunty Lisa

I am a 20 year old girl. My parents died when i was 10 years oldand so I dropped out of school because no-one could afford enough money to pay my fees.

I then met this guy when I was 14 and he struggled to send me back to school. He was selling fruits by the street just to pay my fees.

He then got a job as a security guard and continued to send me to school even to the university, of which I am eternally grateful to him for… indeed there are angels made by God to help the needy in times of trouble.

My problem is that I feel I can’t continue with this relationship because he is not my type, I am not the girl that I used to be when he first saw me, don’t get it wrong, I am honestly appreciative of what God has used him to do in my life but i just cant get totally committed to him based on pity or how he helped me.

So I’m thinking about how best can I tell him that he is not my type without hurting his feelings? I am grateful that he sent me to school but I can’t be in a relationship with him anymore. I want somebody of my own class not a mahobho.
