Please hide my identity. I am very hurt as I speak to you. The heart of man is desperately wicked. How could some men be this cruel and dishonest to their fellow humans? Why? I don’t even know where to start because as I write to you, I am very very sad, disappointed, broken and at the same time angry at myself for being a fool all these while. I met this guy at the restaurant where I went to eat. I had a very hectic day at work and because I didn’t want to go through the stress of getting food from the freezer, microwaving it and oh their stuff, I decided to simply get into one of the nice eateries around my office and have dinner before heading home. When I got to the restaurant, I ordered my favorite soup and as tired. Because of how tired I was, I didn’t take note of other people that were around. I just wanted to eat to my satisfaction.
When I was halfway, I had quenched the hunger so I was able to look around and observe my environment a little. That was when I found this not so young gazing at me. When our eyes met, he smiled and I looked away awkwardly and focused on my meal. Shortly, he left his friend and moved over to my table. He sat directly opposite me and with the same smile as before, he introduced himself. We exchanged pleasantries and we spoke for a while. To cut the long story short, he paid for my meals, took my number and promised to call me later and he did. I was uninterested in his stories and niceties at first having watched my best friend go through a terrible relationship in the past.
I was always careful in my dealings especially when it had to do with men. I was very careful but how careful could one be? We started dating about three months after we met. He told me so much about himself, his workplace, university years, family, hometown and many other things. I won’t lie, he sounded very genuine. We started dating and we have been dating for 7 months. Seven whopping months. How I stayed this long without finding out still baffles me. I always went to his house, I slept over many times, he also comes over to my place sometimes and we have had sex so many times. He was so cool, everything about him seemed right. I couldn’t even suspect anything. How he was able to cover up all these while still leaves me in complete shock.
I found out just three days ago that he was married. His wife called me on the phone and abused the life out of me. There was nothing she didn’t say to me. I can’t believe that I have been dating a married man for many months. Initially when his wife called, she called me a husband-snatcher and insulted me without thinking twice. I was lost. I kept telling her that I didn’t know what she was talking about. She later calmed down and warned me sternly to stay away from him as he was married with two kids. I told her it was a lie. That was when she sent me pictures of their family together including their wedding pictures. Apparently, they stay in Awka while the man stays and works in Port Harcourt. I am deeply hurt. He already promised he was going to come and see my people this January so we could finish things before Easter. How on earth did he manage to lie effortlessly? I am hurt.
