All we really want is to get engaged. I'm from USA she's from The Philippines. We know each-other like nobodies business and honestly we just want to make things right and do this officially. In order for that to happen though I need to meet her entire family.
So Mahal Ko, my best friend also the woman I wish to marry & myself had recently saved up enough to get everything handled .
I guess some misery loves company because in the end some "friends" took advantage of my kindness taking it for weakness leaving us both high and dry. They basically took all the money I had idiotically put into a safe and not into a savings ugh yes I'm young under 30 ...... young.....
A little about me, I'm 26, Caucasian, god fearing and just trying to do what my heart tells me. I have tried to get things back on track but it seems it is a slow moving train on rusty tracks now.
I grew up with nothing. I became educated, disciplined, well spoken and the world taught me with the rod.
I feared god and he brought me wisdom. I embraced his word and he brought me love.
I established my own business from the ground up.
I saved up for an entire year, I gave someone a job worked hard at my trade and ended up getting worked over once again trying to help someone else rather than being selfish and helping myself more than I needed.
I saved to go to my love, to propose to her. I saved to ask her family for their permission and to pay for our ceremony in full since I don't have a family of my own.
I worked every day to make it happen and then when I tell those I was helping that it was time for me to pack up. They took me for all they could and ruined everything I had.
I'm stuck here now. Working my butt off trying to save up again. It hurts almost every day.
I just wanted to be by her side right now. I wanted to tell her that she is the only one for me in person.
I can never be happy if I can't have my best friend standing right next to me living day by day.
I wish I had a family to help me. I wish I had people who could make a donation to our love.
I pray to god every day that he will make this work. He surrendered her love to me. I have loved her since I was a small child.
I never settled. I always gave the plethra. I practiced virtue and I have lived through strife.
I just wish I could finally hold her in my loving embrace, and put the ring on her finger, which even that was stolen.
If you know how this feels and you can help maybe reach out.
If you don't care then don't worry about it.
I don't want to wait another year to propose. I waited an entire year to do this and now there is nothing I can do about it except pray that someone helps us and or work my butt off for another year.
I don't want to feel stuck here alone anymore.
I just wanted to be doing this already.
Long story short I'm just trying to get a short trip to the Philippines so we can get this done.
USA to Philippines round trip 1 time. 1-2 weeks stay.
