Landlady captured my lover

May 15, 2017

Dear Pastor,

I am 20 years old and I am living in Clarendon. My boyfriend is 23 years old. He told me he rented a room from a lady for $10,000 per month. He used to visit me every weekend, but he has stopped. His mother is not living far from me. I told him I would come and spend a day with him, but he said the place is not convenient because it is small. Also, he rented the place furnished, so not even the bed is his.

Every time I call him these days, the lady answers. Whenever I asked for him, she says he is either outside cutting the lawn or doing something for her. One day I got him, and I asked him if the lady is his girlfriend. He said not really, but she likes him. She is a big woman to him, but he wouldn't tell me her age.

I love him, but I don't know what to do.


Dear E.D.,

From a distance, this looks more than just tenant and landlady relationship. You should let your boyfriend know that he is not fooling you, he is fooling himself.

Perhaps this lady likes him, and she would do anything to make him very comfortable. She would take off his clothes and feed him, etc. Well, she would go even beyond that. And if your imagination is running away with you, he has caused that, because he does not even visit you anymore.

The next time you talk to him, tell him that you are waiting on him to tell you the truth, because you believe that he is lying to you, and it is better for both of you to know where you stand in this relationship. In the mean time, don't put your heart on this man.
