Dating arab casual
The thought of courting (romantically) in Saudi Arabia is hard to believe, let alone casual dating. In a country with strict gender-segregation rules and ultra Islamic-conservative practices it’s hard to comprehend the idea of dating. So, for all you single expats venturing out to Saudi Arabia this may in fact be the place you find your soul mate (cheesy, I know).Considering dating publicly is strictly against the law here, keep it discrete and you may get away with it. Some have mastered the art of this pick up, whereby the interested person (most likely the male) will directly drop the number into her purse. I seem to get this one a lot, usually during the early stages of conversation.
This behavior is what keeps most of us wives from asking for very much. And knowing a person will do pretty much anything in the world to make you happy prevents us from wanting to bother them with silly things.
Another common method is doing the name drop through an open window. Yes, it is very daring but if you’re interested, you’re interested. How better to get someone’s attention than directly on their phone. If and when interested you make a blatant gesture on your phone (i.e.checking, typing).
