It should be a fresh start. Stephanie Gorton (27) was ready for her dream man to leave her old life in Australia behind and emigrate to Scotland. She was ready to leave it all behind. Family, friends, home and work. All for love.
But then everything turned out differently. Just before she boarded the plane, the Scotsman simply let her sit down.
The 27-year-old got to know the Scot thanks to Tinder when he traveled around Australia for several weeks. Already at the first meeting there was a great spark between the two. They couldn’t do without each other. Worse still that the two thousand kilometers separated them.
They had a long-distance relationship for a year. During this time they talked about children they had together and even exchanged ideas on possible names. For Stephanie Gorton it was clear: the matter is serious. And so he decided to emigrate. Dare the adventure of love. He quit his job, packed up his things, shipped some things to his new home, and bought a plane ticket. Once in Scotland, there is no turning back.
Her boyfriend has had several relationships
But four weeks before it was supposed to begin, her dream man barely responded. And Stephanie Gorton asked. “I’ve always tried to contact him. She also made contact with her mother, “she told the British newspaper” The Mirror. “Something was wrong. And she found that her boyfriend was spending a lot of time with a South American woman. He later learned that he had several relationships. A punch in the face.
“In retrospect, there were several signs that something was wrong. It wasn’t like it was the perfect relationship, there were also trust issues, but I just loved it, ”said the Australian.
There was a quarrel and finally a separation
Two weeks before the big flight, the 27-year-old’s phone suddenly rang. At the other end of the bulkhead. The Australian remembers. He said: “Steph, it’s too hard, but it shouldn’t be that hard. If it is difficult now, it will be even more difficult later. You will come to me and you will have no friends and you will only rely on me and I am not in a good financial position right now. Let’s just take a step back and give it a little more time. “
More time? Stephanie Gorton didn’t understand. Time ran out. He had stopped all his life. There was a quarrel and finally a separation. He had downloaded it cold.
He founded a successful company
The dream of Scotland was over. And so she stayed in Australia, she went back to her old life. “The worst part was getting back to work and all the people who knew I was moving to Scotland within two weeks.” She felt deeply humiliated.
But he didn’t want the anguish to end. Stephanie Gorton took courage and turned her life upside down, with no husband or emigration. He founded a start-up – successfully. The company now has 14 employees. (jmh)
