Her: Evalene, Philippines: :
“You are not 32!” That was the first thing he said to me when I picked him up from the station. He thought I looked younger. That was one year ago after two months of talking on the phone. When I got the first message from him, I ignored it. But he kept sending, until he finally decided to call me. So I answered him, but I didn’t understand what he said, because his Danish language was very bad. He asked me to teach him the language, and because I was feeling bored at that time I agreed to do it. Then we started talking on the phone every day. Our relationship started as teacher and student, but then it changed to love. I know he loves me. He asked me to marry him, but I don’t know if he will stay here or they will deport him to Iran. I think everything will be okay if he get a permission to stay in Denmark. I love him and I think he’s handsome guy, I would like to make a family and have a sweet baby”.
Him: Babe, Iran:
“I heard that Danish women like a man who loves her and is honest with her. I had that in mind when I researched it on the internet. I am an asylum seeker from Iran, and she’s from the Philippines, but she has Danish citizenship now. I fell in love with her. She has all the things I want in a partner. She’s beautiful and very kind. I hope to stay in this country. The first time i called her, I read aloud from a document I had written in Kurdish and used google translation to translate it to Danish. But unfortunately she didn’t understand me. But we developed our language step by step. I like it here, so if they force me to leave, I will come back, because I love her”.
