From a female blog reader:
I am in a little bit of a situation here. I met this guy last year when he came to serve in my state, we got talking and we clicked and started a relationship. In October we will dating for a year. He came to see me recently and he told me he had a confession; he said he lied about his age and that he is actually 3 years younger than I am.. Although I was devastated I am too in love with the niccur to let go. He says he needs to be able to stand on his own before he will like to settle down and he knows now that he wants to spend his life with me when he is ready but he doesn’t want me to get hurt later and I’m like why will I get hurt? Are you planning something else? As far as I am concerned the only way you would hurt me is if at the end of the day, after I have waited for 3 years or so you tell me things have changed and that he has another girl. I am not in a hurry to get married now but in a few years everyone will be wondering what’s going on. I understand that he isn’t in any hurry but I just need him to be sure. Give me a word, give me a bone, hell just give me something to hold on to. I know he loves me and instead of going for his masters like his father wanted, he persuaded them into setting up a business for him and he did it because he wants to be able to stand on his own for me. Should I look at the fact that he is putting in some effort into getting settled quickly and forget that he is not giving me his word that when he has made all the money he wants to make we will start making plans towards marriage? Should I let him go or hang in there.
