You know if you read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, that an African Facebook (FB) friend had asked me to marry him.
As I've written about in the past, this seems to be a fairly regular occurrence for me. Being approached and proposed to on FB, I mean. Not just from men from Africa, India, Malaysia, but also from men, in North America, too!
Also, as I've said in the past, it makes me wonder why this happens to me.
As I recently discussed with a real-life friend, I wondered if I have some kind of message posted on my forehead that people misinterpret as me being vulnerable, needy or an easy mark.
Oh well, in any case, the point is, it happens. For whatever reason, it happens to me fairly regularly. lol
Back to the story about this African fellow who proposed marriage to me.
When this happened, trying to be pleasant and not wanting to be hurtful to him, I refused in a polite way.
In my own mind, I fluffed it off as just being another one of those FB come-ons. After all, I have received too many marriage proposals from people who were not on the level, in the past. Especially, on FB!
Then, this African fellow began making comments that made me wonder about him. He began commenting about marriage, in a rather negative way.
I asked him to confirm he was single and never been married, or if he had ever been married, in the past. Why? Well, he sounded like he had a chip on his shoulder.
At first, he didn't respond. So, I asked again, and again. Eventually, he replied with an answer that nearly blew me away.
This African fellow told me that he was married!
Not in the past, either. He was married at the time he asked me to consider marrying him!
Hopefully, you haven't died from having a heart attack. Or, had a stroke. Or, even just fainted.
There's more to this story, so stay tuned for tomorrow, please.
Until next time...
