Any people here feel compelled to stay in the US because of extenuating circumstances that prevent you from going back to your home country (i.e. reasons other than career, money etc.) ? I’m not talking about personal preference but a truly complicated circumstance. I’m looking for examples to help someone appreciate how different peoples reasons for immigration are and how sometimes there’s very little choice

As an example: I’m an Indian married to a Pakistani. It’s very unlikely either of us can go back to either home country in a way that the other can live freely / without a high degree of police oversight..

Director 1 - asking someone on fishbowl to “advise” you on how to date a “paki girl” probably isn’t the right move, or even a way to start.

It’s not like you’re gonna get a response where it’s like, “oh yeah, just follow this approach.” This isn’t the GMAT or some shit bruh.

This be a human ting knahmeen. You know, y’all do the meet and greet, there’s mutual attraction and all, coffee and conversations, etc.

But I feel you - shout out to Pakistani women, y’all fine as hell
