LOL, I've just got this fascination as to why there are so many Tun men on Russian dating sites, and wanted to see what was so special about them!
I would've thought there was as many Tune men on Russian sites as there are on UK ones! Maybe not, needs investigating heheh

and probs just as many Tunisian guys on them as these ones!! Well...one thing crossed my mind actually. I know there wouldn't be any actual statistics but with the population as a whole....how many can actually speak Russian??

I would think that by languages, if you were to start with the widest known language in Tunisia down to the least known, it would be:
1. Arabic
2. French
3. English or German
4. Maybe Dutch or Spanish???

Yes, you're quite right there DZ, prob not many can speak Russian, so they'd have to find a Russian girl who can speak pretty bloody good English to communicate!

You find some in the tourist areas speak Russian now, with more Russians going to Tunisia. I went into two shops in the Sousse Medina, and both shopkeepers were speaking Russian to Russian tourists.

Have heard two friends of mine speak enough chatter in 21 languages to make a sale lol I think both of them are perhaps the exception though. They picked Russian up within a year...

No no Dutch and just a very little bit Spanish.
4 must be Italian

3. English more in the North, not in the South and German a lot in the South and common in the North.

Don't get me wrong....there's probably guys there that speak Japanese :D....I just mean out of all the languages mentioned there is probably a higher percentage of guys who know English/German than Russian

He is well educated (has a masters and PhD) doesn't work in tourism & speaks 5 languages (so he tells me).
I don't really know what masters and PhD are here and if it's possible to get them here by studying, but 5 languages......they will not learn that here at any school, they only learn that in Tourism!

I don't necessarily agree with that. This guy could be a translator or something. And even if he's not, my guy speaks Maghreb-Arabic, classic Arabic learned at school), English (also learned at school), French (everyone there does) and Spanish (again, school). And there's virtually no tourism where he came from.

The rest does sound fishy though, especially the whole "signing off because he's upset" thing. That's weird, I think he's guilt-tripping you.

Hi Katherine, so your guy speaks 4 languages because Arabic, doesn't matter what dialect or classic, it counts as one.
And that is also, when they study it at school here in Tunisia, what they will learn, French and some English, so it will stay for 99% the max what they learn at school, 3 languages not 5.
And even for English they have to choose for that, it's not standard here.

And Spanish here at school....? What kind of school did he went go too?

And if he was a translator......he wouldn't be working in a call centre because as a translator or teacher you can find work here much better than a lot off other jobs! LOL

Yeah so I know what I'm saying, because they learn classic Arabic at school and it's completely different from other dialects and does NOT count as one in any way. I'm learning both and I can tell you for sure they're about as close to eachother as English is to German: there are some similarities but there are some huge differences too.
My guy's French is almost perfect and so is his English. His Spanish isn't, but I'd still say his level is intermediate. I don't know how different it is in Algeria (compared with Tunisia) but I assure you I know a lot of other people like him.

Hi Katherine, thanks for explaining!
But the difference is big between Algeria and Tunisia about this kind of things than, because for excample the English they learn here, even at the higher levels aren't that high in real life.

Well that's a good thing then, that makes fewer chances for them to lure an English speaker into visa-ing them!

Hello PurpleNJ,

You're saying you were suppose to marry him, how do you mean that, is the planning still on or do you have doubts?

I came across this site when I was googling something about an extended layover and where to board my dogs in Tunisia, as I was on my way to an International Show. I was just looking around and started reading.....anyway, it snowballed and my perfect world crashed around my ears.
Since then I have learned that Tunisian men rank right up there with the Nigerian scammers and the people who will rob elderly, etc......not all of them are bad, but I have found out that caution and wariness need to be constantly with you all the time. If you are here asking questions, it happens for a reason. As I read, my perfect world didn't seem so perfect anymore and a seed of doubt started to grow. Within a week, a monster that was well hidden for 4 years busted out of it's cage because I had questions.
Ask questions and keep at it until you have answers. It might hurt at first, but it is a lot better than spending years hurting from a possible mistake. If he is legit, then it's great you found a good one and he should not be angry at your caution, it shows you care about yourself and your own well being. If you don't care about you, you can't possibly care about him.
All men throw temper tantrums, that's because they have testosterone and they are born that way. But if you try to tell him it bothers you and he won't listen, what kind of relationship can that be? It has to have communication between BOTH of you to work. It won't always go your way, and it won't always go his either.
Just be cautious and take your time. If your gut tells you there is something going on, listen!!!
