When The Love Doctor Needs Advice (2)

This is the concluding part of the interesting story about a love doctor we began last week.

In the six years we have been together, I have never seen nor heard him talk about another woman, he too has never seen or hear me talk about another man. When he wanted to get his apartment, he asked me which area I would love to live and I said Ikeja. He got a three-bedroom apartment in Ikeja and also asked me to decorate and furnish the apartment to my taste. I was really happy to hear him tell me this, “Suzzy you are the woman here, decorate and furnish the house to your taste. I will give you all the money you will need.”

In less than three weeks, everything was in place. From the sitting room to the kitchen were tastefully decorated. I thought with the apartment ready, he would soon propose so we can start our wedding plans. Three months later, Tayo told me something that totally shattered my entire life: “Suzzy, I just want to say a big thank you for being a very good friend over the years. You will always be special and dear to me but you see my fiancée is coming back into the country in three weeks so that we can start planning our wedding. When she comes, I would want you to be friends with her. In fact, as my best friend, I want you to be her chief bridesmaid. Would you do that for me, please?”

I was dumbfounded. “Did I hear you say fiancée? What have I been to you all these years?” I yelled in tears. “Suzzy, I never asked you out. I see you as a very intelligent and special woman. Have you ever asked yourself why we have never kissed nor slept together? It was because I never wanted to cheat on my woman.” He stressed. “So why didn’t you tell me you had a fiancée for the six years that we have been together?” I asked. “I didn’t say anything because you never asked me. I think you just assumed we were dating but I should have made things clear from the beginning,” he said.

I was devastated. Tayo told me God would bring a good and responsible man my way and very soon too. Immediately, I picked up my handbag and rushed out of his apartment. That was the last time we saw each other and even though he has been calling my phone, I just refused to pick or reply to his text messages.

I hear his fiancée is in the country and their wedding plans are in top gear. I have chased away many potential husbands because of Tayo. How and where do I start from at age 35? Please, I need your advice. The love doctor desperately needs your advice.
