I have opened myself before over and over. When I was much younger, to allowing a man to take over my life and sometimes my $$. How can I be careful, but allow them some control. Years ago a boyfriend , told me to get rid of my old women’s English racing bike which I rode, as it was embarrassing. HE said he would buy me a new one. Did he? No! But my friend had told me I could have another bike, his dead brother’s Italian racing bike. I went along with that offer. No new bike. No bike of my own. Not his brother’s bike, no bike at all, including my old bike which he donated a charity. Since THEN I have learned it was at that time was actually quite valuable. Slowly but frightened of trusting a new man very far. LM, I trust only so far. It is give me the Italian bike then I will donate mine secondly. This makes new men frightened. I don’t blame them. I have allowed men to live-with me then claim later have them that it was partially this. No money exchanged Help! I am in my 70’s, separated after 30 years, to a bipolar man, lonely, & need to love and trust again. I am frightened about trusting again. My husband warns me about match.com as full of men just looking for lonely, older women to take advantage of. Gee thanks. Help me to understand how to allow a new man to feel in charge with out really being in charge. Help. ReplySubmit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
