Born, Yesterday?

If you've not yet read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I would suggest you do so.

I need to mention that the two (2) Facebook (FB) messages from men I didn't know, that I posted in yesterday's entry, are common to what I seem to receive on a regular basis.  No, I haven't opened each and every message, but I have opened many.

In addition, I have chatted/messaged from time to time with some.  Less than a handful, but still some, nevertheless.  I just wanted to clarify, so that you wouldn't think that I never, ever had discussions with any.

However, even though those the men I wrote about in yesterday's entry weren't FB friends, a few others became such. 

In addition, I find that many of my male FB friends approach me in various ways, encouraging me to get to know them better.  Some just want to be friends.  That's okay with me.  We all need friends, whether male or female.

What bothers me is when I am approached by men who claim they want a relationship, or worse yet, want to marry me.  lol  Yes, you read correctly!

If I had to try and determine a number of times I have received marriage proposals, I would have to pick a number out of the air, because although I never kept track, there have been many.  Many, many, many.

In some ways, it's kind of sad.

Oh, I don't mean because they are let down.  That's not the case.  The fact is, they couldn't really care less.  They don't know me.  They don't know anything about me.  Most are just looking for a way to come to Canada.

Years ago, I had a cousin that happened to.  She met a fellow from Europe.  They fell in love, or so it seemed.  They married.  Once he arrived in Canada, and once he had landed immigrant status, he left her.  Marriage over.  Done.  Finished.

To be honest, I find this sort of thing to be rather insulting, at times.

After all, those who are doing things like this, must think I am either desperate for a relationship, or else they must think I am stupid enough to fall for their love advances.

I am grateful that I am not a shallow person who would fall for this sort of thing.  I am grateful that God always reveals truth, in my life.  Thank You, Jesus!

Let's face it.  I wasn't born under a rock.  And, I wasn't born, yesterday!


Until next time...
