It is forbidden to have a love relationship with anyone except one's husband

Dear Sheikh,
I am a Muslim female.  Two years ago I went through a love experience with a young Muslim man,who was divorced. I liked him,and in fact I loved him.
Then he asked me for making love, so I told him that I don't do that as I am religious and that this is zinah.
So he told me i have to make love to you then i will marry you. Anyway, for two years, he is pushing me and twisting my arm to make love with him and that then he will marry me and i keep on refusing sex before marriage.
In spite of all of that I am a strong Muslim and I can stand torture for not to commit any sin with him.
My question is that how can I forget the torture and the very unfair behaviour he caused me and what is the status of this man in Islam?

Praise be to Allaah.

Praise be to Allaah Who has saved you from this man. However, you should not have entered into any kind of relationship at all with him, not even meeting or speaking with him. He is a stranger to you, who is not related to you in any way, and Islam does not allow any kind of love relationship with anyone except one’s legitimate husband. Repent to Allaah from what has happened, and keep away from this man completely, especially since it it quite obvious to you how bad he is and how eager he is to commit haraam deeds and pursue fallen women. We ask Allaah to keep us safe and grant us good health.
