I met this young man at work. I did not know him, I would go to luncn, he would come join me, I'd listen to his boo hoo stories about his divorce. I felt sorry for him. He is 38, I'm 54.
I was newly divorced, (the divorce was't even final at that time), I was alone for the first time in about 25 years and I was scared. I had purchased a new home, (another part of this story...I bouht it for my father - that's what led to the divorce). I said something to this young man that I needed some help with maintaining my home he said he'd help with that. So, in the door he came.
My husband tried many times to get me to come home - I said no, I'd wait for dad. So, I waited and waited...dad had reasons why he wouldn't move (just yet). He jokingly said to me, "Oh, you got yourself a "boy toy". Didn't ask him to clarify what that was but I was having fun. I love my ex deeply and regret that I left him in anger over dad,
Three months of fun with this young man came to me throwing him out in anger of his do nothing, no help ways. I'd forget why he was gone and back he came....this repeated over and over.(Oh, he also brought his visitaton with his 7 year old daugter into my life - I'm chldless by choice.) I just lost my home because of my listening to him!
What a mess I've made of the best life I could ever have had!
