Nice And Easy

I found the man of my dreams only to lose him. I've been going out with this guy for almost four years. He's wonderful in bed. He proposed to me several times and asked me to move in with him. He's a doctor and has nice cars and big houses. He's gentle and understanding, and he's so patient with me. That's why I don't understand why he left. You see, when we met, I just got divorced. I have a son, whom he loves, and my son loves him too. I wanted to wait before I got married again. He understood. So, he waited for two years and asked me again. But I couldn't move away from where I lived since my ex-husband won a court order for me not to move. So, he waited again. Once, he took me out on a trip and I got drunk, something I'd always do every time we'd go out. I ended up having sex with a stranger in public and right in front of him! He was hurt but understood. He said he loved me and stuck with me. He asked me again after a year to move in with him. I said I couldn't. I don't know why I said it. That was it. He moved away. He didn't call me, and he had his number changed. Right now I'm thirty-seven. I don't have a job or money. All I have is the allowance I get from my dad. I think I'm nice and easy. A man can have me for three martinis or any wine for that matter. So, why did he leave me? I miss him so much!
