This is a last ditch effort. I am an Air Force veteran. I am in love with my best friend and the most amazing girl I’ve ever met. Because of school mistakes and struggling to find jobs that pay decent money, she feels I am unable to begin a future with her and she had to make a tough decision to end our relationship. We are still best friends and it is killing me to not have her in my life as my future wife. I have some student loans that fell into default and making under $13 an hour, it is impossible to be paying those off, moving out with her and going back to school to better myself and my future prospects.
I am working with several different options to fix the situation I am in, but I am losing the best thing that has ever happened to me in the process. We have been dating for over 2 years. We have never had a bad time together with anything that we have done. I would do anything I could to make her happy. I am trying my hardest to not cry 25 times a day while thinking about how great our future could be if I could climb out of this hole quickly. I know there is a super slight chance I can win her back years from now, but I’m not sure my heart can wait that long. It is killing me to not have her by my side as I try to be the man that I want to be.
I am hoping that I can at least get enough money to get myself out of this debt that is ruining a future with my best friend. With only $35,000 I could immediately start back at school and finish the degree I want in 2 years. Ideally I would love to have more than that to be able to jump start my future. With $50,000 I could not only pay off my default loans and start back at school, but I could move out of my parents house in the process and it would help me stay out of debt with my future education.
I know my request will probably fall on deaf ears. I’m just at a point in life, at 34, where it feels like a make or break moment. I don’t want to miss out on an amazing future with the love of my life. I don’t want to suffer through struggling for years to better situation while watching the love of my life meet other people and it forcing her to lose her best friend because of a new relationship. I just want to make her the happiest girl on the planet and I know I can. I just need some help.
Please help me. My heart feels like it is going to fall out of my chest. I would be forever grateful! Thank you in advance.
