A few months ago a young man from
requested that we be friends on my personal Facebook account. I didn’t know him but I wanted to see what his intentions were. No word came from him until this past Sunday evening. After a long day at work and then dinner with friends, I came home and got on line to see what was happening with my friends and family. Within a matter of minutes he had sent me an instant message. He started out with the usual greetings that one makes when greeting another. I told him my history with my ex-husband. I wrote to him in French, so that there wouldn’t be any misunderstandings. Nothing of what I told him registered in his mind. Before I knew it he was saying that I was cute, I have lovely eyes, and I look young despite my age of 51. He said that he wanted to have children with me. I told him that he needs a young Muslim girl to have children with. “No, I would like to have a child with you,” he said. Morocco
I felt like a gazelle that was being hunted by a lion. He was going for the kill. I quickly ended the conversation. His intentions were very apparent. I could feel the rage coming from deep within. How dare this man assume that I am old and desperate!!! I was offended by his seemingly lack of respect. People are very disappointing. Where are the good people? I think that it is a myth to believe that good will triumph over evil.
