    Jamaica-Star.com: I Want To Forget Him

    I am a 19-year-old female living in London. I have lived in London all my life. On my 18th birthday, I met a Jamaican guy on the bus. We exchanged numbers and started having conversations over the phone.
    He asked me to come over for a drink at his flat. At first I refused, but the third time he asked, I decided to go. One thing led to another and we had sexual intercourse.

    The second time I went to visit him, he told me that he lied about his age; he wasn't 22 but actually 26 years old. I told him I don't want a relationship with someone his age… What do you think Tell Me Pastor had to say.
