Advice Me: I Am In Love With A Guy But We Are Far Apart

tell tale thursday penastory

Dear PAS readers, it is time for another episode of Tell Tale Thursday and we have another issue at hand so come out to advise your fellow reader. This concerns a woman who is in love with a man far from her but is afraid that he doesn’t want to commit to her because of the long distance. Read the issue at hand and drop your mature comments only.

Hello, my name is Ogechi and I am a very attractive young woman who has had my fair share of relationships. I recently traveled out of the country to a neighbouring African country and decided to have a one night stand since I have been single for a while. Note that I have been single not because I haven’t had suitors but because I am very selective of who I get involved with.

I met this guy just some few days before I was to return to Nigeria and he was good looking and everything I want in a man. Fortunately or unfortunately, the one night stand turned into more because we both fell in love. We have a lot of similarities and he also says I am the kind of woman he has always wanted.

Sadly I had to return to my country and things went on well for the next few days as we kept in touch. He said he wanted a relationship with me and I was super excited but shortly after we started dating, he called it off, saying he is afraid of long distance relationships and would like we be friends and get to spend more time together. According to him, he is doing this because he wants something serious.

I agreed because I am madly in love with him and believe him to be my soul mate. The only problem now is that weeks have turned into months and I feel the spark has died down for him. Every time I ask him, he says he hasn’t stopped loving me but just trying to take things easy. Even when I propose coming over, he says the timing has to be right, I don’t know what that means since it was not like he knew I was coming the first time we met. I have to point out though that he wasn’t working when we met but he now has a job.

Please am I being too clingy and should give him a breathing space. I am afraid because I don’t want to bother him in case he doesn’t want this any longer or is there a chance of making this work.

Please I need your expert opinion on this.
