Im in love, but...

So, I am in love with this Emirati girl. Absolutely adore her, talk to her every day but there are multiple problems:
1. Im not Emirati (her family is quite religious, but enough so that she does not wear a hijab)
2. This is long distance, but I plan to visit her at some point in my life (maybe stay with her)
3. There is 5 years between us in age (but we are fine with that, no clue about parents however)

I don't know what to do really, she has kinda moved on since she believes it cannot happen due to the reasons above. But man... I really love her with all my heart and cannot stand the thought that we cannot be together because of cultural differences. (Main problem is mainly because im not Emirati)

Any advice?

5 years difference in favor of whom? are you older or her?
um, where are you from?

I sympathize with you, you do not need to give up. It all goes to her family, this is a major factor in the Arab countries.

If you are Muslim, decent, will have her live a decent life, i don't think they'll object. You should seek approaching them (her father) and see how things go.

of course this is if she is still interested. it won't make any sense if she has moved on as you said.
