Dear Woman.NG Readers,
I dated him for about 18months before he proposed marriage to me. We did a small family introduction but did not set a wedding date because he was travelling out for his masters degree in UK. The plan was that we will find a way for me to join him over there and get married. After about nine months of being in UK, he started misbehaving. He stopped communicating like he used to and sometimes will not pick my calls, he was always saying it is because he was busy at school or work.
Anyway, some weeks ago he called and said he wanted to have a heart to heart talk with me, he then confessed that he is seeing another girl who is the daughter of a Nigerian billionaire, the girl is crazy about him and he knows marrying her will give him the good life he has always wanted. The girl is also an American citizen.
He said he told the girl about me and they agreed to give me some money to start a business (I don’t have a job) as compensation for breaking my heart.
I cried and yelled and insulted him and cut the phone. But some days later I started thinking maybe it is not such a bad idea, I have not told my family but my friends are all saying I should collect the money and move on.
Please what do you think?
