Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men

Hello everybody!

I would really need some advice from you here, since i am really lost about my situation.

I was in Hurghada on holiday this year in october and i meet one guy he was working as animator there. We went out and started "dating" something like a summer romance

After last day he said to me that he don't want this to end and we stay in contact and see eachother.. Everything was okay when we went out i didn't pay for anything, he took care of everything, he has his own apartment (he is 8 years older than me i am 22 he is 30). He was married to another European women before for 9 years and they have son together who lives now with his mother. He say they got divorced because they were fighting and she didnt want to live in egypt anymore (before that he says that he has lived with her in EU for few years but didnt like it and they came to egypt)
He supposebly got divorced from her like 8 months before he met me... But they keep in touch and he talks to his son regullary... The apartment is like , okay for egyptian and i think it is really his (not from his friend or anything) because all of his belongings were there the pictures of his soon etc.

I planned a trip back to Egypt now in december but here is now the problem.. He told me already back in egypt that he has to have a registration for his car or something like this, and now he has problems paying for it (he left the animation job and he said because of me - so i would trust him more and blabla) but i do not believe that, maybe he got in fight with somebody or he got fired but i do not think he left it because of me (if you need money whywould you leave your job for a girl that you just met=).

So now i tested him when he started to complain about his car and that the registration is something like 100 euros, so i offered him to lend him money just to see if he would take it (i know their culture and i know that the man who respect his women will take care of her financialy and not let his women
take care of him). At first ofcourse he said no no i will not take it from you, but then he said yes... Now i got somehow out of it and not giving him the money But really i am considering if i should even go to him after all that? He say that he will try to figure something out to pay the car so we can go anywhere
and so on.. But i got the feeling that maybe he just want to use me for sex and money... He tried with small amount of money at first mmaybe because he knows that as a student i probably dont have a lot of it.. But on the other hand i did offer him the money by myself to test him (but now when i look back i think he intentionally complained about the car and how stressed he is because he can't go here and there and how lost he is without it)

We talk and hear eachother everyday but i really do not know what to think now..
Any advise and anyone had a similar experiance? I have been to egypt 6 times now and i do know all the stories about women who got scammed especially older women.. And i do know that the worst people there are the ones that work in tourism especially the ones from animation team.

Is this a scam?
