Ask Sis Dolly: My Ex is harassing me

He promised to marry me if his business did well, when he couldn’t reach me on my cellphone, he used vulgar language with me, even after I explained we’re not allowed to use our phones at work

I was in love with a guy for six months. He’s self-employed and stays in KwaZulu-Natal and I’m in Gauteng.

He promised to marry me if his business did well. When he couldn’t reach me on my cellphone, he used vulgar language with me, even after I explained we’re not allowed to use our phones at work.

He also said I should go to hell as he’s given me Aids. He’s now apologised for saying those things.

However, I don’t see myself in a relationship like this and now I’m scared of him.

Sis Dolly Answers 

It sounds like you’ve already made up your mind. But your first step is determining whether there is any truth to him infecting you with Aids.

You have to go to your nearest clinic for an HIV test. If you’re sure about leaving this man but you’re anxious about your safety, I suggest you go to your nearest Magistrate’s Court

where you can get information about how to apply for a protection order.

You can also contact LifeLine’s Aids helpline on 0800-012-322 for advice and support.
