Dear Jordana,

I understand you're a MENA woman but I don't agree with everything you said. Some of it I do! What I don't agree with is saying there's a problem someplace in the lives of the western women who get involved with a MENA man. I'm 26 years old , not fat, of Swedish descent , educated, strong willed, large family with loving parents. I was not vulnerable! I was taken by his words but each time I saw him in reality I learned much more that I was not impressed by him. The internet is not a real place and people can be whoever they want to be.

When you see them and spend time with them that's the only way to get to know who they really are. I'm sure there's MENA men who are good husbands and fathers to their MENA wives and children. Understand with a foreign woman they are not any of these things....only lies! Maybe I sound harsh but I believe I'm speaking the truth. Most stories on here have similarities but not all women come from the background you described. I've seen some of the women on here and they are attractive and seem to have it together but got lied to and misled by a MENA man because his desire was a visa and citizenship to a 1st world country. I appreciate you sharing your thoughts but I had to share mine of how I believe. You can't completely understand unless you're a foreign woman to a MENA man. There are women who do not listen when told the truth but it's their choice. You can only tell them how it is and the rest is up to them.

Submitting....
