Colleen’s story hit us pretty hard, but we think it’s worth sharing. Read on for her heartfelt tale of love and loss. If you’re going through tough times, keep your head up and keep on going!
This is my sad love story. When was in I never really dated I was always one of the guys so when I was seventeen I had my first boyfriend and to find out he had a girlfriend and I was the other women. I was hurt but I moved on. Then when was eighteen I met my next boyfriend and this relationship last 3 1/2 years it was very destructive their was a lot of abuse physical and mentally on his part and he cheated on me by the end of the relationship he had me believing that no one would want and I believed it but lifted him. At the age of twenty one I had be came an alcoholic from 21-25 I had a lot of friends with benefits because it was easier than getting hurt.
I got sober.
I worked on me then I met some one online we became really good friend and stared dating and found out he had a girlfriend. I stopped talking to him a year later he message me and we started dating and I thought I found my soul mate then on my 30th birthday I got a phone call from Dan’s brother telling me he was going to a call even though he was off duty the call was close to his house so he hopped on his bike in a 17 year old drunk driver hit him on his way to the call he was firefighters and from the accident swelling around the brain internal bleeding do for broken ribs he was in the hospital for a month he was supposed to come home on a Friday Monday I got a phone call saying he died I took it really hard for a month or two all I did was get out of bed to go to work and that was so I didn’t have to go to work I didn’t get out of bed you’re lucky if I showered some days I thought my phone was broke because every day at 1 o’clock he would call me so I had friends who helped me through the start time it would call me at 1 o’clock and help me through this I never will ever pick up a drink and I took his death really hard I told the family I would fly out to his funeral cuz he lives in Illinois and I live in Connecticut if they only told me the funeral was just for friends and family and that’s it so I asked for o
Obituary and his mom called me and told me she found letter with an engagement ring say he was going to ask me to marry him I never got that I really thought he died and I never got over that for a long time that year after he died I moved to South Carolina in a year after living in south Carolina I met my ex-fiance and it was really rocky we would break up get back together I was with him for three and a half years in the whole time we were together he was cheating on me I thinks lot had to do with me not getting over dan death commitment my ex fiancé but not the way I loved Dan
And I met this really great guy I’m afraid because everybody I love has cheated on me or die finding love or letting people loving me because I’m afraid of losing them and that’s what’s ruining us because I’m afraid but never loved anybody the way I loved Dan until I met rob or now. But looking back the whole dan thing I really don’t think he died because I’ve never found anything about him dying see your obituary. Will never know the truth about that.
