Hello, so nice to always get your words of encouragement! And this shield I have been hiding behind is finally breaking! Alot has happened to me in the past five days. So, lets start at day one.

As you know, my young Egyptian man stopped contacting me after I told him that I don't want him to come here to live with me, but that I want to move to Egypt to live with him forever! Well after a brief answer from him he never answered me back for four days! I sent him many emails, asking him to please talk to me, I got to the point where I was begging him to answer me. I even thought at one point he was dead! Then, after day four, my last email to him was Good Bye Mohamed. And then I deleted him off my friends list, and blocked him. The end.

Then I contacted the anti fraud department here and reported him for possible fraudulent activity. I gave them his full name, date of birth, everything. Then I called the Border Agency here and told them my sad story. And that I was afraid he may already be in my country under my letter of invitation, and I don't want to have my name attached to him at all. They said don't worry, as they deal with this sort of thing every single day. And especially from the Middle East. And I will be in no way held responsible for anything he may try to forge. Now that they know about it, that is. I was relieved to hear that. Then, I felt very sad and thought what if he was a truly legit guy who actually loves me? But then I told myself that I cannot think that way, as I know very well that is not the case. They said they will be watching him and when he tries to do this with another woman, they will catch him red handed. They said what these men usually do, is when they find out they are refused a visa to come here, they abandon that woman and move onto the next one. But he won't make it that far, as they will be able to stop him from scamming anyone else now that they have his name.

So, I went on with my day, having waves of sadness and crying over someone I truly loved, but doesn't love me and never has. Then my cell phone beeps, a text message. And lo and behold, it is him. I forgot he had my cell number, duh!! So, he texted me appologizing, and saying he was mad because he was refused to come here. And that his cell phone fell into a puddle of water. The same cell phone he was now texting me with!! Yeahhh anyhow.........so he said he loves me so much and to please forgive him as he cannot live without me, and it was his mistake in not talking to me and he was wrong and that he is afraid to lose me and please dont leave him! Oh boy........here goes my heart breaking........no now don't let him do this to you, don't let him reel you back in here, I think to myself. My heart wants me to just text him back and say oh honey I love you too, I will never leave you! I forgive you! But my head was saying NO Dont you dare text him, you will never be rid of him if you do this! And he texted me more lovey dovey words, that I never answered back to.

I called back border agency and they said that to be strong, and keep being suspicious, because if he got that upset over being refused, he probably had a bigger plan for when he got to my country and it probably didn't involve me. It may even have been something illegal. So, they told me to be strong and remember, he is lying to me. They will keep a watch out on any border, in case he is lying about that too, and is already in the country. They know about him now, and will find him if thats the case. Wow, that is intense!!

On a nicer note, I have had three dates now with a nice local guy, who is so nice and honest and kind, and guess what?? It isn't an act!! And I even gave him a kiss tonight, that was nice! And we will see each other again on weekend and he wants to cook for me someday! Okay, so as the days goes on, my young Egyptian man is becoming part of a lesson learned, and if I had not found this website, I would have been on my way over to Egypt right now! Another words, you more than likely saved my life! And so, I owe my heartfelt thank you and gratitude to you all and your stories on here have broken the glass shield I had put up when I met Egyptian man. And it looks like I have met a very nice man here in my own town, who truly cares about me for who I am, not for what he can suck out of me. I will keep you posted on how things go. Once again, thank you for your eye opening stories, you are trully my guardian angels :)
