My friend has had to make a tough call and pull the plug on a relationship with a man who can, at best, be described as a commitment phobe. After three years she can no longer wait for him to ask her to go on holiday together, let alone move-in. He still has his ex-girlfriend visiting his house to see his dogs and has even been spotted going out with his ex for ‘the occasional drink’. The worst thing is, it was him that proactively sought my friend for a relationship even while he was still living with his ex. My friend refused to start anything until he ended the relationship with his current girlfriend. Two weeks later he turns up on her doorstep having booted his ex out of the house and ended it. Three years later he does the same to my friend and she didnt even get the chance to live with him.
My friend is one of those rare breeds of people who put others before themselves and have nothing but good intentions, no hidden agendas. She deserves happiness yet she only finds the opposite with the men in her life (a bit like Kylie Minogue).
She is in her mid thirties and wants children and marriage (in no particular order).
I am hoping once she has re-grouped she will go on match.com and find the man who is drinking the same brand of orange juice as her while he waits for his path to cross hers (aka Sleepless in Seattle).
In the meantime I will patiently wait for the day when we can go wedding dress shopping (I DO have an agenda!).
