You are right, we are concerned for you and we can be a little aggressive. 23 years old is young and there is still so much that you just don’t know, but think you have all the answers( yes we are in mama mode). We see things you don’t see and really don’t want to see because you are hooked by his companionship. We don’t want to see you get taken for a ride. I’m Arab, so I’ll tell you straight forward what I know to be true and most other me speaking to you have lived your exact story.
I do appreciate it, I just feel like all I can say is I won't give money, stay with him, etc. I don't have parents so I appreciate the 'mama mode' even if it's hard to hear, I think it just is making me very emotional and has woken me up from the fantasy. TBH yes I am young and I should be focusing on myself and figuring out my own life. Even if he were the perfect guy and not a rat I think I should just focus on myself anyway. Thank you for all your help

Yes you really should focus on you because he may seem like the perfect guy, they all did to us!!! And here we are we have been hurt, lied to, …example ; tuition, but it was always something that made us feel obligated to give money, the fact is they are many miles away you can’t trust them they could be talking to many others, and some ladies here were taken for a lot of money!!! Because they were the perfect guy:( and ended up with a broken heart

I feel like I just need to meet him, with the intention of just seeing what he is like. He has mentioned he doesn't want to go to a Muslim country. He wants to come to Mexico but if he can't then maybe Serbia, which he doesn't need a visa for. I can listen to what you guys are saying and you're probably right. But obviously it's incredibly hard to just stop talking to him and move on when we've talked every day for over a year. I'm just going to see how it plays out and keep my distance. Focus on myself and not plan on anything with him, etc.
I said the exact same thing 'I need to go back, he might be different, I need to see for myself' it is natural and we understand your reasons....

You are very well travelled but that won't prepare you - trust me he will treat you like a Queen, his family will treat you as though you are a long lost daughter and you will have an amazing time then BAM he has you hook line and sinker!

OR he could turn out to be an absolute beast, drinking, having friends round all the time expecting you to provide the refreshments - he will leave you for hours to go to the coffee shop with his friends sometimes even locking you into the apartment!

If you do meet please book a hotel independent of him and stick to places that have lots of people around, if possible take someone with you or at least let us know so that we can put you in touch with other members that lives there in case of emergency.

Basically, I've been telling people about my Tunisian boyfriend and they keep linking me this site. None of them care about him and assume because he is Tunisian he is scamming me. I never thought much of it and now after reading these posts, I am worried! To clarify, I do not think he is a rat and hearing others opinions might be hard for me. But I want your guys' honesty on this please.♡
I met him on kik.. an app where you are matched with a random person and you just start talking. Me both used it during quarantine in April 2020 because we were both stuck at home bored. He never asked for nudes (like most guys) so I continued talking to him. We are both 23 years old btw and I am American. Also, both of us are Agnostic and have similar worldviews and wants for our future. From my perspective, he has been the sweetest guy I have ever met. He listens to me, and is never controlling. He has asked me for money once. Basically, he was supposed to start university and he found out a couple weeks before that his family couldn't afford it. He said he was so nervous to ask but he finally did.. to pay a bit for his tuition. I said no, and he said that's okay and money was never talked about again. I have brought up marriage simply because I told him if we're really going to do this we'll have to get married at some point. He wants me to live in Tunisia with him, he's very excited to show me different places, food, culture. I said maybe if things go really well we could get married so I can get residency there and he seemed open to it. We agreed neither of us want to live in the U.S. Now, to me, all this sounds reasonable and I'm really excited to visit him. Am I missing the warning signs? Or any questions u guys have about us for more detail? Thank you!!!
Sounds like a rat that contacted me. Once his name was aziz...

From what I understand he went to school in France and went to visit extended family during holidays. He then moved to Tunisia during covid with his family. I guess when he got to Tunisia and was going to start school, he had to take an Arabic language test to enroll?

So his family can afford to send him to school in France but can't afford the free university in Tunisia :confused:

I'm honestly so confused with this. Because I asked this question in a Tunisian forum and everyone said I'd be fine to stay with him in an airbnb or apartment, that no one cares. And that Tunis is more liberal than most places in North Africa. Is this not true?

In a Tunisian forum? Full of Tunisians who have used bezness to get visa? Of course they will tell you anything to help a fellow Tunisian with his bezness

Hi

Hi @Chipmunk welcome to the forum. As all the ladies told you he is feeding you lies there is no chance he is not into religion it's the way he is brought up. Tunisian men don't ask money only rats do, no ifs no buts and as @Aisha1 told you university is free in tunisia so why would he need it? Take a deep breath and read all the advice given to you and I think your friends gave you a good advice to read here because he is indeed a rat

The best scam I saw is they all get word off mouth your coming
And watch the friends come to your rat demanding money he owes 200 dinas the rat will pretend hes upset and will say habibi lend me 200 dinas
Then after the friends gone he will pretend he borrowed money to buy you a gift and the money was stolen they cry croc tears
Then stopped by the police more dinas
But the best is the shop keeper the rat and family will buy things on tick and expect u to pay when u are there u think its just rats no it isnt its all the fucking family !!!!!
Its all practiced before u come more fucking money ftom you

How low do they go well very low!!!!!!

I know the rats. rat friends and their rat families are into ratkateering. (Group of rats who profit from our money by deception)
I think I got ripped off when I got an apartment, I think the ex-rat pocketed money throughout the times I was there and I wasn't even aware of it.
No more dinaroes for this ratty bunch!

See that’s probably the worst part of it, the fact that they’re all in it together. As a newbie you might think (and I can see how) oh what lovely people, so welcoming, everyone coming to see me......Then you realise it’s because they’re all getting a piece of you, f*cking vultures.

The more you think about it the more sick it becomes... I actually can’t imagine getting my friends and family together and coming up with ways to scam someone’s that’s flying to see me. It’s so, so low and to me a form of organised crime. Ok, we might’ve picked the wrong guy but we certainly never chose to be scammed by GROUPS of individuals...!

If he’s introducing you to every Tom, Dick and Harry then yep he’s a big ole rat, and it’s another red flag as a wife or partner is meant to be protected from the male gaze. Obviously he shouldn’t be hiding you from everyone but we all know what north african men are like with their wandering hands and eyes.... I have been out with a regular middle eastern man and they are the total opposite to the common rat.... very jealous but in a protective way... don’t allow anyone to look or speak to you in a negative manner.... will fight anyone for you.... generous and keen to provide, yes they actually enjoy it and are eager to show off their manliness... these f*ckers are the complete opposite...! Don’t ignore red flags ladies.... if it smells like a rat then it probably is one! LOL

Im a private person and didn't like the attention no more .
His friend came to coffee and he paid for himself really did too
The rat told me bill was 25 dinas the friend snatched the money off him and gave me 15 dinas back and shouted at my rat
The friend said to me next time look at bill dont be crazy !!!!!
Ratty boy kept quiet all day didnt even mention the incident once
But boy oh boy I checked the bill all the time after that!!!!

@Starlight , who knows he might have shown off other victims in front of his friends.
Its all an act, all this ratkateering from the rat, rat's friends and rat family!
Even my ex-rats family asked for help to see if I could bring one member over?
Bad enough the rat alone and the whole family wants in on it!

You will find their behaviour bordering on mental illness childish imature selfish !!!
The more time u spend in the relationship the more abusive insulting they become the only thibg they want is visa money and to show off their atm which is you !!!
Lots of people judge us saying oh that this happens in relationship, and people disagree and I beg to differ because if its
happening to a lot of us then no its not a normal thing.
These rats are a different species, never had anything like this in my life because everything is wrong with them mentally!!
and I am happy to say I will never go through this experience again!
