Hi Isis- i'm just extremely worried he'll google his name (if i do mention it) & he'll find these comments i wrote. that's pretty much it. but i'm worried cuz of his overly emotional tendencies. if he's passionate, effusive, romantic & full of promises on the one hand, he's volatile, oversensitive, defensive & histrionic on the other. I sometimes wonder if he's bipolar or borderline. Seriously. It's crazy b/c while I feel quite invested in this strange relationship / friendship it's full of so many unhealthy dynamics that are draining me mentally & filling me with anxiety. it's like caring for a special needs child. I'm exhausted b/c i want to help him & offer as much support as i can, but i feel like it's never enough; either that, or what he's telling me to be his struggles & hardships are in fact lies. I just don't know and that's even worse. So I err on the side of compassion but something tells me he has commitments/priorities elsewhere. And it really hurts to think that as much as he's told me he loves me, it might all be lies (but why string me along??). Something that's been bothering me particularly is his suspicious unavailability on Fridays. Sat & Sun not so much but always Friday. what is it with Fridays? i know they are supposed to be the sabbath for Muslims, but i highly doubt he is deep in prostration during Salat. and if he was taking this day for religious observance, wouldn't he be more than willing to share this?

Sorry but i think there's another woman. Either a girlfriend or wife. He's 29, so wouldn't it be a bit unusual even by his cultural & religious standards not to have been married by now?? Something's going on, and who knows, I could merely be a side dish. Btw for what it's worth- his name's Jamal (so tempted to put his last name). who knows, maybe another woman reading this has also fallen into his web of lies.
