I am in a big panic! I am a 29-year-old banker in Yaounde in great need of advice or a word of reason. I am sinking into depression daily as my 30th birthday approaches. I used to tell anyone who cares to listen that I will be married and will have had all my kids by 30.
It hasn’t all worked out the way I wanted as I have not had much luck with relationships. I am about to hit the big 30 and I have almost given up all hopes of meeting Mr Right and starting a family. I love children and I think I am financially stable enough to be a single mother since I can’t seem to find a man.
A married colleague of mine has been pursuing me for almost a year and he seems to be the only man interested in me at the moment. I am seriously considering to use him as the father of my kid(s). He told me his wife is unable to have kids so I think the arrangement will benefit us both.
I think this is a good opportunity for me, but then my desperation might be clouding my judgement. I wanted to seek advice from my friends, but I am worried about being a subject of gossip, which is why I shared it on this blog anonymously. What do I do, please?
