Dating in middle eastern culture
In general this also applies to kissing in public places, even a bar where it’s generally more socially acceptable.He may not be comfortable just yet with sharing that kind of moment with the rest of the world.Today I hope to clear up some myths and verify some facts about dating a man from the Middle East and why it’s not something you should immediately turn down!If you are interested in a guy who is from the Middle East it’s important to find out about his family life and where his values lie.1) Complaining about your overtly jealous woman then throwing tantrums when she merely glances at other men in the room.You are not the Sultan and whatever applies to her applies to you as well. 2) Flaunting your finances when wooing a woman, wining and dining her at the priciest spots in town, ordering the ridiculous magnum champagne bottles and showering her with expensive gifts only to later complain that she’s only with you for your money. 3) Her style is what got you noticing her in the first place, but suddenly you’re not feeling those mini dresses and shorts anymore.Even the word Arab can be unclear because people presume Arabs are a single race.However, the term Arab refers to culture and language rather than lineage.
6) She was honest to you about her past relationships from the start, yet the closer you get, the more annoyed, jealous and paranoid you start to become with her history.
Dating a guy from the Middle East can be an extremely interesting, fun and rewarding experience, as it was in my case. Their expectations may not be the same of yours and it’s important to find out early on so as to avoid running into heartbreak down the road.
My rule of thumb when it comes to dating is that no matter the culture or background they come from, if they are kind, interesting, and make me laugh I can give them a chance.
If you are not interested in dating the person, make sure you make it very clear from the beginning.
Otherwise, they may take your interest in friendship as an interest in romance.
