Who I Follow


What I Read at University — Fantomina; or, Love in a Maze

From her first finding out that he design’d to leave her behind, she plainly saw it was for no other Reason, than being tir’d of her Conversation, he was willing to be at liberty to pursue new Conquests; and wisely considering that Complaints, Tears, Swooning, and all the Extravagancies which Women make use of in such Cases, have little Prevailence over a Heart inclin’d to rove, and only serve to render those who practise them more contemptible, by robbing them of that Beauty which alone can bring back the fugitive lover, she resolved to take another Course.
