A flurry of Arabic went back and forth between Ahmed and two other men before the story was eventually explained to me.
Ahmed had been dating a girl from rural Egypt who came to Cairo after the revolution to earn money to send to her family. And he quickly made it clear she floundered at the job: she was unable to demand payment and allowed men to do whatever they liked. Even worse, the girl had disappeared and Ahmed hadn't heard from her in months, until that morning on Facebook.
This perhaps comes via meeting a lot of men so I am able to weed out the good catches from the not-so-good.
Prostitution in Egypt is a good indicator of wealth inequality.received message: I am a foreigner male living in Egypt.Egyptian men overall are quite wonderful and I personally know many men here who would be great and ethical husbands to foreign women.Of course if their goal of marriage is to just obtain a visa then that is the biggest red flag. And it doesn’t matter if Egyptian men read these tests and attempt to con you by pretending to be ethical.The truth always seeps through sooner or later even if via the smallest discreet ways. I am just saying it will increase your odds if his work has nothing to do with tourism.
