I wrote the following email to my girlfriend today, any comments are welcomed:
I don't know how to tell you this but I'll try anyway. When I first met you, I told you some lies, but in my defense, I didn't know that things would ever progress to the point that we are now. Some of the lies that I've told you have now snow-balled into even bigger lies. It was never my intention to hurt you. Things have progressed between us and now I'm at the point where I'm in love with you want to come clean with you but I don't want to hurt you and I don't think that's possible. I love you so much, but these lies are killing me and I just want to come clean with you. I would completely understand it if you decided that you don't want to have anything else to do with me after you read this email.
The following is a list of lies that I've told you:
1. I don't have one sister but, rather, three sisters; One older step-sister (T) who is married and has five children, A younger sister (C) who is married and has four children; An even younger sister (S) who is single and lives on her own with no children.
2. I was passed over for a promotion at A a couple of years ago and I was really bitter about it and I quit my job without having another job lined up. It took a while for me to find another job that paid well and as a result, I defaulted on all of my credit cards, my truck and my boat both got repossessed and I moved into small house in L that was being financed to me by the owner because I couldn't afford to live in my apartment. The house I was buying got to be too much for me with all of the repairs, upkeep and what not, and in November 2001 I moved into a mobile home in L with my cousin F.
3. The Expedition: In January, I was trying to get financed for a new Expedition. I finally got approved despite my credit history (repossessions and defaulted credit cards) but I couldn't come up with the down payment that they required ($5000). I was embarrassed to tell you so I've lied to you since.
I am really sorry that I told you these lies. I feel really guilty and ashamed about all of this and the reason that I'm telling you now is because I don't want to lie to you anymore. Like I said before, I would completely understand it if you decided that you don't want to have anything else to do with me.
I hope that you can find it in your heart to forgive me because I don't know that I could ever forgive myself.
I DO love you and that is one thing that I've NEVER lied to you about.
I love you.
