Ask Gwendolyn Baines: I Have Found A Man Who Loves Me!

Dear Gwendolyn:

Six months ago, I was in the process of building my house.  One  morning a construction worker delivered the kitchen cabinets. He accidentally  ran his truck into the corner of my side porch.  He agreed to fix it  himself – begging me not to report the incident to his foreman.

Gwendolyn, I am 65 and the man that is in love with me is 32.  All  my adult life I have been misused at work, by my family and people from all  venues of life.  Before meeting this man, I had come to the conclusion  all people were cruel and unkind.  But this man is perfect.

Leslie

Dear Leslie:

There is too much of an age difference.  I suggest you end your  relationship with this ‘perfect’ man immediately.  Let me tell you  this:  I strongly feel the accident was staged.  Elderly  women with money are prime prey to men with none.

I want you to seriously think about your feelings.  Too badly no  one told you that the world will chew you up, spit you out, and stomp your body  into the ground.  People will treat you the way you allow them to  do.  Let no one cause you to have an unhappy day.  Some  people (especially family and co-workers) are so miserable the only joy they  receive is when they have made others feel the same. Think about  it.  Whatever they say or do, ignore.  Never stop to give  thought to people who possess — an ignorant mind.

 Got a problem, email Gwen at: gwenbaines@hotmail.com or write to her at P.  O. Box 10066, Raleigh, NC  27605-0066.  To receive a reply, send a  self-addressed stamped envelope .
