“I never knew he had another girlfriend. I thought I was the only one. Or perhaps, I not smart enough to discover his slippery nature? I didn’t have any cause to doubt him, so I didn’t.

After this experience, I didn’t or couldn’t trust any guy anymore.

Maybe soon, I would date again. But for now, not again, no so soon.
