A woman whose ‘high-flying CEO’ boyfriend regularly sees prostitutes and uses cocaine has revealed why she refuses to end the relationship.
The Australian woman, who has been with her boyfriend for two years, revealed she doesn’t want to leave him – even though she is disgusted by his addiction.
Speaking of the situation, the 42-year-old said her partner had spent thousands on escorts in the past year.
‘He has spent Ksh 6,000,000 on prostitutes in the last year alone and that’s only what I’m aware of,’ she said.
She said she met her current boyfriend two years ago on a blind date, six months after her relationship ended with her ex-husband of 10 years.
The woman revealed this man had been married for 20 years previously and told her he had never cheated on his wife.
She said the man, a ‘high-flying corporate CEO’, had moved to her town to recover from a cocaine addiction – a problem she thought she could handle.
The woman said it didn’t take long for her to realize something wasn’t right with her relationship after she turned up to visit the man and he didn’t pick her up from the airport or answer her calls.
Her worst fears were confirmed when she turned up to his apartment and saw the man passed out on his bed.
‘There was a text on his phone saying, “Baby, please call me”. So, I called the number and the woman on the other end admitted she was a prostitute – and was looking for payment,’ she said.
The woman said she thought this had only happened a couple of times when he was high on drugs, but realized this wasn’t the case after checking his bank statements.
She discovered that in three months there was Ksh 2,000,000 worth of transactions to prostitutes on his credit card and he had been hiring them when away on business trips.
She said while she felt ‘absolute shock, disgust and disappointment’ over being lied to, the man told her he didn’t see this as cheating – more as paid transactions with no ‘heart connection’.
While she said there have since been countless promises of change, including a trip to Thailand to heal their relationship, the man has continued to use cocaine and see prostitutes.
She revealed the most recent of these interactions involving escorts, and possibly cocaine, was just four weeks ago when she saw another credit card statement showing he had spent Ksh 5, 00,000 in just one night.
While the situation is one she described as a ‘s*** way to live, she said she doesn’t want to leave.
The woman said if the circumstances of her life were different, she may have walked out. She explained her previous partner had killed himself, and that four days before he died she discovered he had also been cheating on her – and for a long time.
‘I absolutely adore this man and have a soul connection with him. Life is messy. I’m 42 and if I leave him and meet someone else, there will just be another problem to work on,’ she said.
She added while there are ongoing promises of change, she doesn’t trust this man, however, despite everything she has hope that one day he will stop.
And she’s not the only person struggling with these kinds of relationship issues.
Recently, a man revealed he had fallen in love with an escort who sleeps with up to 20 men – and that he was on the brink of ending his relationship because the woman wouldn’t quit her job.
Speaking about his situation, the man, named Michael, said he was initially okay with his girlfriend’s profession.
But because his feelings had grown for the woman, he was hoping she might take a step back.
The young man, who himself earns Ksh 120,000 a week working a run-of-the-mill type job, admitted his girlfriend doesn’t have sex with him at home.
‘She can see anywhere between 10 and 20 men a week,’ he said. ‘I’m at the point where I’m going to crack and I can’t do it anymore.’
While the conundrum was put to listeners to share their thoughts, it took the honesty of one caller to put the man’s situation into perspective.
This man shared how he had also fallen in love with past girlfriend who was an escort and the pair had spent 15 years together.
But while he was in jail for a drink driving offence, she fell in love with a client and the pair lived in his home while he was away.
The decision of whether to leave or stay was clearly a difficult one for the man seeking advice, and one that ultimately rested with him.
