Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: Yes shameful but

Submitted by Lina (United Kingdom), Jan 27, 2021 at 17:23

I have to respectfully disagree with your comment, as it implies that targets of these men are all "older". This is wrong. I have been pursued by Muslim men since the age of 18. Nor am I promiscuous. If a man has his sights set on a woman of his own faith or background. Then it doesn't matter if you're Miss Russia 2019 cause he's still trying to pump and dump.

I WILL say that women of childbearing age (so 17-34ish) are more likely to be taken a bit more seriously with regards to marriage and kids. Believe it or not, I have seen many examples where men aren't so bothered about a woman's past, if they end up falling for her. Men are actually pretty good at sensing a good, genuine heart. Not everything is black and white.

Please get this notion of out your head that's it's only older or undesirable women (which is also a highly insensitive thing to say on a board of mainly ladies) that are being used and abused, because it can happen to anyone. And this can make it harder to detect, because an attractive, young woman may believe that she's exempt from being exploited. Finally, not all "Western" women have loose morals, just as not all Muslim women are angels. Never judge a book by its cover, you will be "sure of a big surprise!"
