The Man Who Got Away
Over a week ago, I met a wonderful person at a Christian dating website. His name is Evans and he is in his fifties. He was like no other man I have met. Not like the ones my friends had warned me about. He sent me a short email through the website and saying I can look at his profile if I like. Most men asks you for your email or will give you theirs which really is against the administrators policies (For safety sake) I decided to give him a chance.
In one message he wanted my email so I gave it to him and we started corresponding. I have told no one about him because everyone thinks I need to be careful as if I wasn’t-- I was. Maybe that was why I almost lost him. He wanted me to trust him and I had no reason not to.
It all changed yesterday when I decided on a whim to see if he was on face book. I found his profile and it blew me away! He was gorgeous and I wondered what he saw in me. All through out my younger life children teased me and made fun of me. If I liked a boy he didn’t like me so I suppose I thought “Why would someone so gorgeous like me?”(Not so gorgeous) I wrote him and told him. Well, evidently I had hurt him bad. He wanted to break it off and my heart went to pieces. I sent him a card and a video asking him to forgive me:
(The video was Bryan Adams’ Please Forgive Me).
Today, I may have a second chance depending if he forgives me.
