My best to you.
Dear XXXXX, Thank you so much!
You have hit on a few valid points, and fortunately some of what is going on may not be as bad as it seems. I have limited space in these questions. The man is actually doing something constructive on the consulting proposal and we are going to see him today to go over it. The money was invested about a month ago, and now this man has introduced another person to invest. It is in a biotech company and components, which is the area the other person already invests in. Things are seeming more normal, thank goodness, in that respect. Apparently the new investor told my BF and this man in their meeting, that he is tired of and over the club scene, and prefers to spend time with his wife. (Boy, was I glad to hear that he was a family man.) What I want to do is find ways to let my boyfriend know to keep his distance from the man who is part lech/part consultant, since we will be having conversations with him with our new office near where he visits 1x week, and relating to the business. I am definitely going to use the phrases you suggested above. -What I am seeking are things to say so that I can remain thoughtful, not telling my BF what to do, and sound wise.
