  •  Your intentions are not the issue (0+ / 0-)

    It is the fact that the power relationship is so skewed that it becomes abuse.       He is not just "poorer", he lives in a country where there is very little chance to be economically successful.      

    It is the same dynamic as a sexual relationship between an older employer and an employee  who wants to get ahead.

    It is the same as a sexual relationship between a military commander and a private in the field.

    I may not have come to this conclusion except that your friends referred to him as "a hustler".   I found that offensive in the first place.    He is poor and doing what he can to survive.   Maybe he sees you as a hustler?     You are relatively rich and exploiting that power differential.

    Sorry, but thats the way I see it.
