Dating in middle eastern culture
This is not an “honour” issue; your own insecurities are getting the best of you.
Of all the different cultures out there a girl could date, Middle Eastern men seem to be the most frowned upon.
Once you’ve worked out that you agree on some important basic values there is no reason to not at least give it a chance.
When I mentioned I was seeing a guy from the Middle East the most common response I got was “be careful.” This always just confused me. Usually the implication was that he was going to take me to his country and never let me go. While it made me laugh it also made me very upset to see how fundamentally misunderstood their culture is and how unwilling people are to give them a chance.
Jerks don’t all come from a particular country, religion, or culture so don’t judge a whole group of people from negative stereotypes!
The values of Arab culture are unique and often mysterious to Westerners.
Just as Americans are of mixed race and ethnic backgrounds, so are Arabs.
World Bank data for 2017 estimated the population of the Arab world at 414.5 million.
