See I have some additional baggage: I am divorced and have a child of my own.
I am also college educated, I am a teacher, and I feel like I have a good head on my shoulders.
Submitted by alr (United States), Dec 21, 2008 at I have been dating a Muslim man here in the states for going on 3 months, and so far things have been great. He told me that he loved me about a month ago and that he has never told any girl he has dated that he has loved them before.
He told me that he wanted to tell his family about me (they are still in the Middle East).
I feel that he has been open and honest with me(he didn't have to tell me about his parents and the consequences if they say no), and after learning some of this I did try to break it off and he started crying hysterically saying that we didn't even know what they would say yet. I feel like I have in the back of my mind been planning for us to fail, and now with that guys comment I am even more concerned.

It seems so cruel, and does not seem like my bf would ever do this. Reasoned disagreement is welcome but not comments that are scurrilous, off-topic, commercial, disparaging religions, or otherwise inappropriate.

Israel is not exactly the first country that you think of when it comes to online dating.
JDate is a niche dating site that cares deeply about its niche.
Beyond bringing Jewish singles together, the site is equally passionate about strengthening and nourishing the spread of the Jewish culture.
I am very respectful towards him, and I have always been open minded to different people and cultures.
I have never been on this side of the racial line before.
I once asked him that if you don't think your parents would approve of you dating an American girl then why do you do it?
