in response to reader comment: Yes Robert

"This forum is for women seeking advice, help, reassurance, a soft ear to listen, a place to vent, to help others. It's not to be told, "oh, you messed up"."

Polly, I did give advice, probably the best advice anyone has ever given to these women here - to all women who are over 25 years old & non-Muslim, or just non-Muslim of any age - do NOT consider seriously a Muslim man. He will not take you seriously (in 99% of the cases), and will not respect you.

I also never told the women here "you messed up". I asked them repeatedly, "How could you prevent this from happening again?" Not ONE woman answered me. Implication being, the answer to that question is "I could have used better sense, better judgement, researched more the culture & taken an honest look at MYSELF (my age in particular), before giving money, having sex w/ & falling for a Muslim man."

"Mr Pipes should have stopped her posting a long time ago, with her passive aggressive, bait and switch posts!!!"

Yet, my several of my posts were starred and have received dozens & in some cases over 100 "likes". No passive-aggressive posts Polly. But my responses from the women here certainly were.
