    Honestly, it doesn’t sound like he truly loves you. He wanted to marry you after seeing a photo. He barely just met you. He saw you like 5 times. My dear, that’s not true love. Love takes time. That’s attraction, a crush, puppy love, not the true love which gets deeper every day. Don’t marry this guy because you think he loves you so much. He doesn’t. He loves you “on paper” just like you do him.

Let them know you don’t love him and don’t think you ever will. You have lots of time to find the right person.

    sk13579 :  take this within the context of your culture, because I wouldn’t normally be blasé about an arranged marriage. I’ve seen that arranged marriages can work, but bee, a marriage is for the rest of your life. 

    What are you going to do 40 years from now when your kids are grown and he’s not working and all you have is time to talk to each other.

    some people don’t require great intellectual stimulation and they might value being taken care of first and foremost. You seem to want more, and that’s my concern. 

    its possible to have a marriage to someone who is as smart as you, makes you laugh, etc. the risk is, it could take a while to find that person. Of course I think it’s worth that time and risk, but your values might vary.

    Going along with this and marrying this man will be the easiest option, and will likely make him and your families happy.

    However, it sounds more than likely that you will not grow to love this man and will be deeply unhappy. That will be more difficult to live everyday rather can calling this off now. You simply cannot force yourself to love someone you do not. I think you owe yourself more than to do the easy route here. You deserve to be happy and to have a fantastic, love of a lifetime, not just a life of contentment.

    You don’t want to marry him, and he deserves someone who loves him back. You both deserve happiness and love, and it looks like you won’t get that if you stay. It doesn’t mean he’s a bad person, or you’re a bad person. Just not marriage material together.

    Call it off!

    I would call off the marriage just as much for him as I would for you.  Both of you deserve to be with someone you are attracted to and love.  You would be doing him wrong if you marry him knowing that you probably won’t be capable of feeling either of those things for him.  I would appreciate honesty and forthrightness even if it hurt my feelings rather than find out some time later that my partner was living a lie.

    I’m sure there are arranged marriages that work out. However, you clearly do not want to do it. I understand you have cultural pressures, but you get one life. I wouldn’t marry this guy if I were you.
