Iv sorta neglected this blog..
yes it was for a man, a lovely guy to be honest, it lasted about 4/5 months I met him on that fish dating site August last year.. 🐠
He had his own business and 3 kids, when they wurnt in his house I was! 😬 My son who is 18 was grand with this because he just wants His mum to be happy!
Anyhooo things got very serious very fast, it seemed like we wur both living in each other’s pockets.. (not really a good thing)
After a few weeks he asked if I would like to go away for the wkend, off we went to the radison in letterkenny! Had an amazing time, treated me like a princess 👸🏽 he seemed very old fashioned about treating a woman Wudnt let me pay for anything! (Which for someone as independent as me was very hard to deal with)
Few months in it was my birthday and he went WAY OVER THE TOP with presents I was shocked at the things he bought me he even sent the BIGGEST bunch of flowers to my work! I couldn’t believe I’d met someone who done these nice things for me!
Now my main worry was his bday was 3 wks after mine! I had to be on my A game and really make it special.. Luckily I won a few quid online playing bingo and got his bday sorted! He was delighted with his present..
Now xmas was a few wks away and I had to buy presents for that too.. 😑
This was just all getting too much I felt I was trying to keep up with the presents he was buying me! This wasn’t me at all..
On the 22nd December he phoned me to tell me he would bring my presents down but he had to go somewhere first, I had been off work sick with pleurisy (felt like I was dying) I was a mess, in he came not his bubbly self, sat on the settee and told me he had been at gamblers annonomous and his business was on the bare bones of is arse because he had gambled and frittered away any money he had! 😶 I didn’t know what to say!
I hardly heard from him over xmas, we spoke the day after Boxing Day! He seemed distant, mayb I was reading too much into it or mayb I was spot on, I finished it there and then! I wasn’t going to be able to deal with someone who couldn’t manage their money! Might sound bad but I have always looked after myself my money and never really relied on anyone for anything! Iv always worked hard and my son has wanted for nothing! I just couldn’t understand how someone could put their children’s home at risk by gambling! Mayb I was too harsh..
But what kinda life wud that have Been worrying about every penny! I shuda realised with all the lavish gifts! 🎁
I do miss him even now 7 months later!
