We're all telling her not to go but you know she will. I almost went to Pakistan!

Our hearts are so wrapped up in these guys that we believe it will work. Jackie, it's all a pipe dream.

If this guy was an American and treating you the way he is, what would you do? Continue the "relationship"?

Sounds like his mom is working with him for whatever reason--I don't know. A man does NOT quit his job if he is going to support you. The guy I was talking with was employed--a very good job working at closing down bogus quack dr office in Pakistan. He promised to take care of me and love me, etc, etc. But too many things didn't add up.

Many are telling you but you will do as you wish. First off, the guy I was talking to offered to pay my plane ticket. You should NOT have to pay your own airfare if he truly is about YOU. Think about it.

He should be treating you--pay your meals, your hotel, your airfare. YOU are his guest, his "love". Bet you never gave that any thought, huh?
