“All along he had a girlfriend of seven years” (Friday edition)


Dear Willie:
When I just met my boyfriend he was soooo good to me. I had nothing to complain about. I felt like for the first time I finally got a good man to love me back sincerely.

After a few weeks of dating I asked him if he had a girlfriend, he said no. I felt like I was floating way pass the clouds as he had a wonderful personality, a great job, his own place and his own vehicle.

He treated me just as I treated him. Trust me Willie, things were going great. Up until a year after, I got to know he had a girl pregnant for him. I was dumbfounded and crushed. When I confronted him he was so sorry and explained everything to me. All along he had a girlfriend of seven years.

I was really hurt but being I was so in love with him, I stayed. He begged me not to leave him. Now she knows me and harrasses me, calls me 24/7. He still tries to be good to me but I keep seeing her face.

I feel like things will never be the same but I really love him and I know he loves me. My mom says I should leave but I am so comfortable with him. And I love him so much I feel like I can’t.

I am unemployed and he takes care of me. I am hurting and depressed over this. It just isn’t as easy as you may say, to leave him. It’s hard. Please help me.

Dear Miss: This guy is a master player. Unfortunately you have fallen in love with him. You’re right: At first glance, I thought to tell you, “leave the man alone”, but you’ve already admitted it won’t be easy. And I believe you, and I understand.

Well, why don’t you play the game too? Continue to eat his money. Times are rough and you don’t have a job, so don’t stress it. If you do not intend to leave him yet, might as well you continue to make most of his benefits while ensuring you protect yourself. Don’t get pregnant.

This guy is a smooth player and he needs a dose of his own medicine.

I believe part of the reason you believe you cannot do without him, is the fact he takes care of you financially. Well, proceed until you get a job. When it is hard to get over someone, “tek wey yuself” in stages. Getting over someone does not happen overtime. Take it one step at a time, be smart.

Trust me when I say this: No matter how much you believe you cannot get over him, you will get over him. Eventually, you will grow tired of his bull— and go – if he doesn’t shape up..

As my mom always say, “If you cannot hear, you will feel.”

But one thing I note from all these letters: men here seem to have a “lying disease”. And I am wondering why are women falling for these lies so easily? Don’t ya’ll investigate before going with a guy? I mean, investigating as in not just listening to haters or hearsay, but actually doing your own investigations.

I think a lot of females in St. Lucia are minding people’s business and not minding their own. You’re talking piss about another guy and another relationship, but you fail to address the underlying issues in yours. Females here got to be a bit more vigilant in their relationships. It is ok to “float”, be in love, and be happy, but be smart. Not everything you see, actually looks the way you see it.

I know females in relationships for many years and had no idea their men had multiple children outside the relationship, for example. How did ya’ll allow this to happen? From what I know,  a lot females here know everybody’s business. I guess they don’t know about theirs. OOps!

Willie

  7. those men not easy.. but I don't blame them fully.. because we show people how to treat us... if we as women didn't accept those shit.. im sure they would dare continue this crap.... but any way action speaks louder than words... ive had my share with them... I recently met this guy who is in a long term relationship... and he is telling me he wants to be with me... I said dear I don't wan to be no side chick... and I ask him if im worth being someones second.... and that he is very selfish... allow me to get a single man who wants me to be wifey... this guy is still persistent.... I might hv to pull my papper spray if he cant understand..

  10. I think you should put yourself in the other woman's shoes the one who has been there for seven yearsand has probably had to deal with seven of yyou one in each year and then you will find the courage to save her some more grief and leave

  11. This relationship is solely based on convenience don't mistake it for love. Own car, own home, has a job and you don't. If you loose him you're back to being broke and no woman likes to be broke.
    Guess what, no woman likes another woman sleeping with her baby daddy.
    Pray to God baby mumma don't get crazy on you, cause she also wants to eat. A woman about to loose her bread can get crazy, especially the pregnant ones.

  12. St. Lucian Men: we have the LIARS, the CHEATERS and the ABs. Lord, what chance do we have of ever finding a good man?

  13. I believe you Willie and everything that you stated are true to the bone. my sister always say to me if you cant hear you will feel it. It is very sad to say a lot of young women loves men to feed them . Their dignity and pride can be taken as long as money is getting into their pocket books. get your independency intact and trust no man will take you for a ride.

  14. I think you should leave despite how hard it is. Pray for God to see you through and maintain your pride and dignity Leave this man alone.

  17. FIRST OF ALL YOU SHOULD HAVE ASK FROM THE BEGINNING WEATHER HE HAD A GIRLFRIEND OR NOT.
    SECONDLY DON'T BE NAIVE, A MAN WIL CHEAT AND LIE AS LONG THEY ARE GETTING AWAY WITH IT.
    NEXT, TRY YOUR BEST TO GET A JOB AND TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF,CAUSE IT MAY ONLY BE A MATTER OF TIME TILL HE GETS TIRED OF YOU, DON'T GET PREGNANT CAUSE THAT WON'T MAKE HIM LOVE YOU MORE.

  19. Smh at you women playing innocent....she indicated that she loves him for hes money. Its obvious he would never take a hobo as a wife. Stop depending on mun for everything. I am sure there were hints to show this man was lying. Now for those saying men are dogs some women are bitches...who u think sleeping with the guys after one night, women just mad because they get stuck with a belly and cant run from that. Note I am one of those who love only one woman and believe that every man should take care of their own.....but these hoes aint loyal. You a good girl find a good guy not a guy with money and car and buys you whatever u want...thats not a good guy thats a sugar daddy.

  21. A relationship doesn't start without the consent of a woman. Lies or not, a fella will "try ah ting" and it's up to the woman to determine whether it's true or not. You mentioned all the things he has, if he didn't have them but was nice to you, would you still want him? If he was a construction labourer without a ride, but treated you like his queen, would you fall in love with him? I think you fell in love with his things and money and you are now trapped. Tell me, how can you not find out something about someone in St.Lucia, such a tiny place?

  22. Girl, I was in your shoes one time; sad thing is my "bf" at the time NEVER admitted to being with this other girl. We started dating in the second year of our friendship, split for a few months, then reconnected. When we got back together, I saw signs that something else was going on with him and I heard rumors too. So, I used to investigate for myself, and did find evidence that he was seeing someone else, but not concrete at the time. At the time, this girl was out of island for some years, so I figured that he had cooled off. But every time I found more evidence, I confronted him; he kept turning me down like it was not true...until I found more concrete info that he was seeing the other girl. I confronted him and eventually told him of my intentions to leave him. He didn't take it well, and up to a day like today, he has not admitted to being with the girl. But truth is, I can't trust a man who is not honest with me. I hang in there for 8 yrs hoping he would come clean, but since he never did, I figured that it would never be, so I picked up the courage to move on...BEST THING EVER!!!!
    In any case, do what makes you happy and what is best for you; but be sure to also think about what you would do if it happened again..

  23. Wow....so many issues in this one letter. Lady it's time to get up on you own two feet and to start supporting yourself.. That way you won't have to depend on a man and take man crap. I understand that you are unemployed and times are rough but you need to at least start something somewhere, whether it be school or odd jobs here and there. 7 years??? Well he won't leave that woman for u.. And she even harassing u... Chops.. Chick you deserve so much better.
    I agree with willie when he says that people don't mind their business... Master stalker as I am I would be all over Facebook and Twitter , Facebook and Instagram looking for clues... Granted people hide there these days.. But even in things he would do and say you get clue... Have u been introduced to family? When do you see him? Where do u see him? What does he do when you guys are together.. Is his phone off? Can you get him when you call him.. Ask questions and you will see how he answers then you will learn a lot.. Unless of course he is a master player and knows how to cover up.... But mind y'all damn business...
