I met an Algerian man age 26 via Facebook. I am a 34 year old Canadian woman with a 14 year old son, living in Canada. Since the moment we met we have been very close and have a very strong connection. I am seriously considering meeting him in person as he has made it very clear to me that he accepts my son with special needs and loves me unconditionally. He is educated and speaks fluent English. He is interested in marrying me and living together in Canada.
I have told all my friends about this man and explained that he is of Muslim faith. Everyone is trying to convince me that Algeria is a dangerous place and that Algerian men are not to be trusted.
I am beginning to feel discouraged as nobody has anything good to say about our relationship.
We talk every day online and he knows everything about me. I am planning on meeting him in Tunisia or Algeria and I would like some solid advice about whether this is a good idea or not.
Most people I talk to advise me to give up and walk away but I really feel we have long term potential.
