New Maserati Owner in USA

Hello all,

Funny how the road of life changes, it throws you lots of curves and forks in the road. So what better way to navigate them but in a Maserati!

First I want to say to everyone, no matter how low you get, or how much darkness and despair is in your life, you CAN get through it. Talk to someone, anyone, family, friends, a therapist. It does help......I know because I was there. I was so far down and so far in the dark I couldn't see any light. I was literally on the verge of ending it all.....I'm so glad I didn't.

I was married 22 years and together for a total of 27. My kids are 23 and 20. A few years ago my wife said she didn't love me anymore, and wanted to split. Shock, anger, and then depression..... I attempted to move on, started "dating" .....UGH..... Dating in today's world is a mess, especially when you're 49.... Online dating, catfish, wackos, you name it, I've experienced it.... But I found a great therapist, she told me that I would be a great partner for someone, and to start thinking that way. Obviously a lot more therapy went into my mood and thought changes, but I came to the conclusion I really didn't need anyone to make me happy, if I never find someone, that would be fine.

I know, what's this have to do with owning a Maserati......bare with me....

After tons of first dates, some short "relationships" , Leslie came into my life. At first I thought she was a "fake" profile....Absolutely stunning pictures, easy to talk to, humble, and kind. Basically out of my league, or so I thought. I am a fit, fun, decent looking, nice guy, but I never had the highest opinion of myself..... Some people think they are the greatest, my self confidence leans the other way.....We set up a first date, and when we met she took my breath away. She was PRETTIER than her pics, as well as nice, sweet, and super humble. Never thought it would go anywhere, but she seemed to like me more than I liked her?!?! So getting to the moral of this long story. She LOVES cars. She has a real nice MB SL550 hardtop convertible.... After dinner we went to her local hangout, and as we're talking to some friends the topic of a used 2015 Maserati Ghibli S Q4 comes up. White paint, red and black interior, 15000 miles..... She loved that car. Always wanted one....

Now after dating her for over 2 months, and staying with her almost every night, I realized I needed a car considering I own a Dodge Ram 1500 and a Yukon Denali....Yes, horrible on gas mileage and the commute to and from her place is around an hour drive. So there's a Maserati dealer near her and low and behold, they STILL had the exact car we talked about on our first date......SOLD....... I absolutely love the car, but love Leslie just a little bit more...HAHA

Thank you for reading my story. If anyone out there needs someone to talk to, send me a message. I've been there, the darkness will become light eventually, just hang in there....... Quoting one of my favorite bands, The Maine....." YOU ARE OK."
