1) What made you write the book?
I wrote this book because I learned that many women are victims of such faux relationships. The men are gushing over them and they have every intention of using them for a green card and to get to a supposed better opportunity. Whole families wait for this opportunity and support the user in his endeavors.
2) Is it 100% factual or have some names or other things been changed?
The book is based upon my own experiences – some names have been changed.
3) you now healed from this heartbreak?
I am healed, but I won’t ever forget it. It was a waste of my precious time even if it was a wake up call.
4)What should other women look out for?
Other women should look out for how quickly the relationship moves from online chatting to “I love you” and “I want you to marry me”. They should slow the whole relationship acceleration down by making certain to claim their time for themselves and NOT be on the phone/computer for his every message. This will establish boundaries and once he feels he cannot hold your attention he will move on. Time is of the essence for him. In my own case mine claimed to love the name “Latoya” and had befriended several ladies with that same name. I would later learn that he only was looking for a specific type of person of whom he thought would be able to assist him in his dreams.
5)Do you still believe in Love?
I do believe in love…with boundaries and a plan that each of the people involved is in on.
