Hello sir, I don’t know if it’s okay to share my experience with you.We met at the university. I was in my 2nd year and he was in his 3rd. The day I met him, he was talking to his father on the phone, begging him to do anything to get his fees for the semester paid. His airtime finished while talking. We were both walking to the campus market. He tapped me on the shoulder and asked me for 5 cedis to buy airtime. I gave him Gh¢10 and bought Gh¢10 worth of airtime for him.
That was how we became friends and he asked for my number. The day he visited me at my hostel, he told me he was hungry. I cooked for him. He is a guy I was willing to do anything for. I asked him about his conversation with his Dad and he said he wasn’t sure he would come through with money for his fees. Dave, this is a first class student. He was a watchman at night at Adjiringanor and a student by day.
Two weeks into our friendship, I called my Uncle in Australia to help. My Uncle wanted to see proof of his grades before extending help. He sent 5000 dollars two days later. I paid his fees, bought him provisions and gave the rest of the money to him. I used my father’s connections to secure him a good placement for his National Service. When I was in 3rd year, I got pregnant with his baby.I wanted to keep the pregnancy but he insisted he wasn’t ready to be a father.
Dave, I wanted the child but he made me abort it. When I was doing my National Service, I got pregnant the second time. He said he wasn’t ready to father a child. I told him I wasn’t going to do an abortion again. But he begged and begged and I got it aborted. We were having unprotected sex because he didn’t like using condoms. A year after his service, he was employed full-time and transferred to Kumasi.
But before his transfer, a side job I was doing for a client of my Dad paid me a few thousands of dollars. I am an accounting freak, very good with numbers so I do a lot of accounting related jobs for people. I bought a car for myself. The car was for me but because my boyfriend had been transferred to a different region, I gave it to him to help him with his movement. We had an arrangement for him to visit me in Accra twice in a month. I was to visit him in Kumasi twice a month too. We talked about getting married in 2021 last year.
Everything was fine till he started missing his visits to me. He always had one excuse or the other. One day he told me he was attacked and the car had been stolen. Dave, I wasn’t worried about the car. The fact that he was alive, that was all I cared about. I was doing much of the visiting now because work was taking all his time. Last December, I saw a mutual friend like and comment on a picture of a sister of her school mate who had given birth and was naming the son.There were several pictures. In one of them, was a photo with my boyfriend. She named him as the baby Daddy. The girl’s post also mentioned, her fiancé had gifted her with a car. She was standing next to my car in another photo, the supposed stolen car.
When I confronted him, he told me he didn’t know how to break the news to me. He wasn’t sure he was in love with me anymore. He also said he had to be with the other lady because she got pregnant and was scared of abortion. David, this is my story. I am heartbroken because after 5 years of being in a relationship with him, he leaves me for someone else without giving me any reason at all. I want you to sing I dreamed a dream, because that is what my story is right now, a dream. Nothing real anymore, they still have my car and I don’t know if I want it back.
