He assured me that he loved me and that he was not willing to give up his soul mate.”Her eyes welled as she told me her story.I tried to be as empathetic as possible but I was growing angrier by the minute.“He swept me off my feet with his sweet words, compliments, attentive gestures, romance, and warmth; he was a god compared to European men, who are often distant, reserved, and not very emotional.
