  4. Please help me….
    I am seeking for help from anyone in Negros Occidental, pulupandan to find my love and speak some sense into her. The person I’m referring to is Rosie (Anirose) Espanola from pulupandan. Her phone number is 639272252666 AND EMAIL: LUVYAH_ROSIE@YAHOO.COM. I love her very much and miss her. Ever since she came back from manila to the province 3 weeks ago where she was working in a bar named THE APPENZELLER estrellita bldg.2 ALABANG ZAPOTE RD.MUNTINLUPA, she is ignoring and avoiding me, she isn’t answering my calls, sms or msgs, giving me excuses which are full of lies. I don’t know why she is doing this to me. We both love each other very much and she knows it too, for 9 months we have been talking online and spend a lot of time everyday for over 8 hours daily. She confessed and committed to me and I gave her my life, I’ve spent a thousands of dollars over a million pesos by way of gifts etc on her which I did out of pure love for her, now she wants another million and insists I give it to her to love her. Omg I cant believe this blackmail.. I trusted and believed her blindly and she is my life now, I cannot live without her. I have lost all bearings on life without her now. I need her to survive, I’m completely at her mercy now and dependent on her, she was my eyes I saw the world. She was the beacon of light for my soul. I’m totally committed and sacrificed a lot for her, I’m sick now and devastated and ruined. My days are dragging and I don’t want to live anymore. I will not commit suicide as I’m a god fearing person, I know the lord will put some sense into her to realise how much I love her…I ask all kind and loving people over there to understand me and help me pls. I want to talk to her parents please if anybody knows tell me.
