This happened to me once, a guy just came and grabbed my cart and started pulling it from me despite my protests.We were yanking the cart back and forth for a while.In shock, I lost all verbal filter and said, "I like bacon and I love Jesus." He continued to attempt to tell me my religion was no issue but he never addressed the bacon. I've taken a break from dating but know that one day my guy will find me. The countries strict laws on gender segregation make sure all contact between the sexes is minimized.It was a whirlwind romance and we had a great time while it lasted.In Omani culture it is looked down upon to date a nonlocal, so he wanted to hide our relationship and we parted ways.You meet someone, go out a few times, cohabit without marriage and then have a baby. I have definitely found it hard to date as a single Black professional woman in Amsterdam, but it is no different from the struggle I faced in the U.
Sometimes dating and flirting attempts from young Saudi males tend to go a bit overboard though. It would appear that there is no such thing as dating in Saudi-Arabia.There are no movie theaters, restaurants and cafe’s are segregated by gender and single men are denied entry into malls and even parks.By the time he realized that I was in fact calling my husband and not eager to hear his phone number he ran like the wind out of the store!Bluetooth and Blackberry Street Tahlia street is a popular place for men to sit outside at its numerous cafe’s and restaurants.He gave me his number and assured me he didn't have a wife, something I had to ask since polygamy is legal here.
