Hi Bella:

Yes, I understand that this is difficult. But all of the yelling, crying and screaming, that's designed to manipulate you. The reason why it works so well with the target audience is often due to inexperience and because things always seem to start off so well that you don't want to just end it. When I was involved in on-line dating and called out women for lying, they would snap back at me about how rude I was. I don't think people on our side of the fence are used to that, and the liars and scammers will go all out drama because it works, and frankly, they've probably pulled that once or twice on someone else and got it to work.

It also sounds like he is trying to get you pregnant because then he figures you'll want him in your life and he'll be set with his "plans".

I understand the desire to have a dream wedding, Bella, but believe me, this is a nightmare in the making. I have no doubt that you had fun in Morocco, but you would not be marrying Morocco, you would be marrying him. And do you think with all of this fussing he's doing that he's going to help you raise a bunch of kids in addition to the ones you already have?
