It has always been said that love is a beautiful and thing and its sting leaves many people feeling in touch with themselves and the idea of staying in love forever.
This is the story of an American lady who was married in the United States and eventually separated from her husband only to hook up and fall in love with a Ghanaian on Facebook who looks just like her ex-husband.
A lady known by the Facebook name, Envy Tiecy, reached out to YEN.com.gh and shared a rather bizarre love story of how she met the new love of her life who happened to be a Ghanaian called Philip but known to her family members by the nickname, Charlie.
Philip, according to Envy, was a 43-year-old self-employed DJ in Accra. He had been married before but only for 5 months.
According to the lady, she had fallen so much in love with the Ghanaian that she has scheduled coming to Ghana for the first time to seal their engagement.
Envy Tiecy, who happens to be a 33-year-old divorcee and mother of 4 children, said she met her Ghanaian lover on Facebook.
She revealed that earlier, she was ignoring the messages sent to her by Philip because she was married at the time.
As time went on, her marriage of 8 years finally came to an end after requesting for divorce from her now ex-husband. With her husband out of her life, Envy said she received yet another message from Philip and she decided to just open up and be friendly by responding to his message.
She said that, “He told me straight up 'I want you to be my Girlfriend' Like I don't even know you dude! He actually thought I was in Africa because I was telling him that I live in Louisiana. And he was adamant about talking on the phone, So after dodging his calls while trying to chat, something in me said "I bet his voice sound sexy AF" And that’s when I actually answered that MAGICAL call. His voice was EVERYTHING!!! Deep, Sexy, Accent, and to top it ALL OFF, HE LOOKS JUST LIKE MY EX HUSBAND!"
Envy indicated that she had a feeling that her ex-husband and Philip could be related because their resemblance was too striking to be just a coincidence.
However, all may not to be too rosy for the new lovebirds since according to Envy, Philip had also been married before and divorced his ex-wife because she was ‘crazy’.
She added that Philip wanted both of them to keep their relationship rather private since his ex-wife could sabotage their plans of getting married.
Envy revealed that if everything went according to plan, she was going to fly to Ghana to advance plans of getting married to Philip even though her ex-husband is also upset about her decision.
She added that some of her friends and church members hinted that she was going to end up in sex-trafficking should she decide to come to Africa to see Philip.
She added that even in the face of opposition from her own family members, she was loved and adored by Philip’s family members in Ghana.
Envy also revealed that a prophet in Ghana had told Philip that he was going to travel abroad but he did not know when and where.
If everything goes according to plan, Envy Tiecy would be making her very first trip outside the United States to marry the love of her life in May this year.
