Dear Wefugees community,

I'm in a very complicated situation and I hope that someone here can help me with advice. I'd be very grateful for your support.

First good and positive things -
I came to Germany in 2016 from a Caucasian small country (don't want to say the name out of privacy concerns). In 2018 I was granted an Absciebungsverbot according to §60 Abs. 7 and got my residency permit according to § 25 Abs. 3. In these 3 years I have learned German by myself, got certificates for B1 and B2 language levels (both of them 100% scores), took a Das Leben in Deutschland integration test (also 100% score, broke local time record - 2:58 minutes) and did an Ausbildung for 1 year (cancelled out of health reasons). I love this country very much and feel myself fully integrated into the culture and society. I speak 5 languages and I'm waiting for an open vacancy now to get a job. If that doesn't work I plan on doing a Weiterbildung and try again.

Now the difficult thing - 
I am gay and have a boyfriend who lives in Russia. We're in a long distance relationship since 2017. He visits me on a tourist visa once in a while. The relationship is very serious, as we really love each other and want to live together. We have tried everything we could these past 2.5 years to get him to Germany. He has a very specific profession (perfumer in fine fragrance) and tried to apply for a perfumery school or a job in Germany, to immigrate.

We're having very difficult times because all of his applications get denied. He speaks 4 languages, including German, has a Master's Degree. He was offered a very good job by a German company 2 months ago. They sent him a Job Contract and he signed it. But 1 week ago they wrote back, saying that the application was denied by the German government. It was our last hope to get together. We don't know what we can do anymore. If I had a German citizenship, I could marry him and he could stay here but I don't have full citizenship. I only have a German Blue Card (Aufenthaltstitel) and a Reiseausweis (my original country documents are not with me).

A lawyer told me that theoretically I can marry him now but it will not help us. Does anyone know what else we can try to get together? :( His job searches get denied and he can't apply for Asylum because he has no problems in his country. We lost all hope and really need some advice.

Thank you in advance.
