in response to reader comment: "I know that I can sacrificially love"

It's always refreshing to see comments from men on here, and they're usually right on the money probably cause men are often greater realists.

I think you're right about the masochistic element. A lot of women that are attracted to Muslim men have that almost Catholic need to please, to fully submit to a man... but no matter how much of themselves these women are giving it's never enough. Either they're not giving enough money, or they're not pious enough, or young enough, or pure enough even if they were virgins (cause pure to them means pure like a 9 year old girl)... or mena enough... lol.

In fact you can be the perfect female whoever that is, and one day his parents decide they don't want you for their son... and boom it's over... wasted time

I don't think there's one specific religion these women should be looking for... but I tend to think that the one that's closest to your own belief system is the best option... which is why I'm always talking about Mediterranean men who have that same macho culture that mena men have, but without the ulterior motives (visa, spreading their faith, war booty etc)...

Everyone wants their happy ending... but could it also be that some women are setting themselves up for failure... out of insecurity... intimacy issues...? That's something else to think about

Submitting....
