    english help please? (correction of a text)

    Hi.

    I have to write an essay for my english class. Unfortunately my english isn't that good so I need you to correct my text.
    Can you please have a look at grammar and spelling mistakes? And at the formulation?
    The italic and red text does not belong to the actual text, that are just some comments.

    Will +rep every helpful correction / tip. Thanks!

    @Mojo
    Thanks for the help.

    In one sentence you wrote "Another point is that you might not even like the person and his character and behavior the situation, making the situation much more complicated." ... is that correct? Seems like you just forgot to delete "the situation"? :p

    And where you said I should add an explanation I wrote this: "I personally would not feel comfortable and safe by spending every single day with a stranger because there is no basis I can rely on.". Is it correct?

    And in my last sentence I said "act more freely like European women.". I was wondering if you understand it correctly. I mean that they will act like the European women do act now. Can I say it like that? To me it sounds a little bit like "they are more free like european women are"... you know what I mean?
