There they told what they wanted with all my heart, you namely that they soon a man meet would and that within 12 months. The wife invested around 4000 euro in the line subsequently because she fell into a real dependency.
Always, she wanted to inform themselves about the latest developments, wanted to know the details of the promised partner and the time.
