l am Prince Peter Odili.....from manchester london...I am looking for the mature woman who is understanding capable and willing to share the burden, the joy and the happiness of my life:a woman who finds deep care and humble commitment in her heart and thrives for excellence in her service for man and that i can spend the rest of my life with, a woman that has a winning personality and clean straight forward character.....who can transfer this role and be a model for the children a woman who is not afraid to learn to live up to the social standings of her family and.. still, does have the erotic capabilities and sexual drive to attend to her man with great personal desire,.....She must know that I am an individual with thoughts and opinions of my own, and she's willing to be open minded and discuss differences of opinions. She understands that in some cases there may be no 'right or wrong,' but just a difference in the way things are viewed according to one's own perceptions.. A kind, easy going woman who wants to be a help mate.....wish u could be d one....i hope to read your favourable reply soon...you can contact me on my personal mail firstname.lastname@example.org
I could posts months of conversations, btw I basically told him go elsewhere when I received this letter, but he was persistent and I was eventually charmed. Right now I am going through grieving, being furious with him and myself for not paying more attention to the red flags that were sent up or inconsistencies, to just sad and lonely for the person I thought was my partner. My last husband was an abusive jerk and I really was trying to not put my distrust on my new relationship, which sadly is what I should have done from the start. Even though the amount of money he received from me isn't a huge amount, I am more disillusioned by how someone could be that evil and do it for months on end. Please stay away from anyone who refers to themselves as 'Prince' as a nickname (and yes I was aware of Prince Peter Odili in Nigeria were this person is most likely from.) I can only hope that I can prevent any other women the heartache I am feeling now.
OhI almost forgot, He sometimes uses the email address of email@example.com and is currently on Facebook under the name of Steve Johnny and using firstname.lastname@example.org on Myspace and listed as Prince Peter saying he is 38 yrs old from Bolton, London UK. For his profile on Tagged.com he claimed he was 28 yrs old and birthday was June 12th 1980 from Manchester, UK working as an electrical engineer educator.
