Dearest Cindy ~ Again, it was very nice to hear from you. As always ~ I was touched by your words and felt deeply the heartache you have suffered. -BUT- compared to a few weeks ago, I also sense in you a stronger "self" - aligned with more courage and faith. Yes...Cindy...you ARE right - I AM very PROUD of you! It was nice to hear that you are getting yourself 'back out there' - dating- that is. Certainly - you WILL find a man who will love you (for the right) reasons. I was also happy to hear that you are using a 'dating site' which allows for you to date within your own community. Speaking of - -one of my best friends, met her husband on a 'christian dating site' and they have been VERY happily married for 15 years and together they have two beautiful boys. :)

As for your EGY man ----- It is so~~~~~ obvious that he is lying to you Cindy - however - I strongly believe you are aware of that now. -AND- you ARE right---- he does NOT want a lady twice his age - he ONLY wants what you will give him, be it your hard earned money - or - as you said - SEX. SEX before marriage in Islam is a HUGE sin Cindy - AND- he wouldn't DARE even THINK of asking a Muslimah to have sex before marriage - and especially one he wants to call his 'wife'.

I know it's been difficult for you Cindy - but you are getting there! I pray the day will be (sooner rather then later) that you will close this chapter in your life with this 'muslim' man! Just keep reminding yourself that no matter how much he plays the 'game' of 'hearts' - YOU are the one that is in control of your destiny. -AND- remember - he WILL continue to lie to you as long as you allow him to. - I'd also like to remind you (again) that in Islam, it is deemed as OK to lie to us infidels. It's called - 'taqiyya' which is an Islamic doctrine of deception - sadly - this means that lying in Islam is 'permitted' as long as they are gaining the 'trust' of non-believers in order to draw out our vulnerability so to defeat us for their own personal gain be it financially or otherwise.

I hope I've made some sense and hope I've been of some help - I DO care - and have been 'praying' for you. Please - keep your faith in 'God' - STRONG - and let him guide you - He is there for you - as am I - :)

I hope you will stay in touch - I want to know how you are doing - I am here for you always! We at the 'Daniel Pipes' are here for you.

You are on your way to a BRIGHTER day! <3
