Breakups can be difficult however one woman didn’t let being dumped bring her down for long. After her younger ex ended their relationship and reportedly told her she was 'fat and ugly', she is now set to marry a new man and couldn’t be happier.
Joanna Girling, 47, says she and her Egyptian fiancé Hysm Fygo, 39 will tie the knot in Cairo, Egypt next year.
The unlikely couple met after Joanna was dumped by another younger man from Egypt.
Joanna, from Kings Lynn, Norfolk, said: “I’m excited that I’m going to be his wife for real – when he proposed we’d been living together and it felt right.
“The spark is still there, every day when we’re together it’s great it’s just hard being apart from each other.”
Joanna’s relationship with her British ex-husband ended after meeting her future beau on holiday in Egypt in 2018.
She said she would sneak off for rendezvous with the man, who worked as a waiter, while her husband slept. She officially broke things off with her husband in July of that year.
The whirlwind romance ended when the man, who is aged in his 20s, dumped Joanna, supposedly telling her she was ‘fat and ugly’.
Joanna said: “[Hassan] was texting me saying he loved me and missed me so I went out to Egypt to meet him – but after a month money ran out.
“He told me to go back to England to carry on working, but when I flew back he said I was fat and ugly and not to message him anymore.”
She didn’t let this get her down as she met her now-fiancé in May 2019 when she returned to Egypt to start a new life.
Hysm owns a shop and they met by chance while Joanna was working as a nursery teacher in Hurghada.
Joanna and Hysm shared a taxi ride back to her apartment one night – where they enjoyed a night of passion.
She said: “A friend of mine came to see me on holiday and we went for a walk and sat down for a drink at Hysm’s herbs and spices shop.
“My friend said she wanted to go back, so I said I’d go back to the shop and sort out a taxi.
“He came back with me in the taxi to my apartment and stayed the night – and after that he kept coming back and seeing me."
Now, they’ve been together for three years and are preparing to get married in January – and Joanna says things are steamy as ever.
But Joanna had lost trust in men which meant she initially pushed Hysm away at first.
She said: “He kept coming back saying you need to trust me I want to be with you – in the end I gave up pushing him away because I knew there was something there but I was still scared.”
Unfortunately Joanna is no longer In contact with her family.
“My family have still not had any contact with me since I’ve been back even though they know I’m back,” she admitted.
“But I have all Hysm’s family and they love me, that’s the main thing.”
