My name is Blessing, a 48-year-old woman who has been hurt several times in my quest for love in my desire to settle down.
I cannot call myself a smashing beauty but I am not ugly in any way. Though I may not be a beauty queen, I am what you would call an average woman and I take very good care of myself.
I may be on the wrong side of 40 but I can pass for a woman in her 30s. I have a good job and do a lot of contracts by the side where I make good money.
I have my own house and have three cars. I am very generous and whenever I am in a relationship, I give everything to the man and always hope for the best but in the end, I always end up getting hurt as they will either dump me after taking my money and body.
I can’t count the number of men that have used and dumped me, leaving me with a broken heart and crying my eyes out.
All my younger sisters are all married and the shame I go through whenever anyone asks when I will get married cannot be told here. Many people, especially in my church snigger behind my back when they think I am not looking.
They make it seem as if there is something wrong with me or that I am a bad woman who can’t keep a man.
The last man I dated had promised me heaven and earth and vowed never to hurt me but after I gave him over N2 million to set up a business with the hope that we will get married, he absconded with my money to South Africa and had the guts to send me a text message that he cannot marry an old cargo like me.
Yes, that was what he called me!
I have prayed, gone for deliverance in several churches, undergone fastings and assignments all in my bid to get a husband to no avail.
I am really fed up with my situation and I wonder if there is a good man out there for me. I really want to get married and have my own child.
Dear readers, on True Confession today, what do you think Blessing should do in to find a good man who will marry her?
