Dating middle eastern - updating the status from view
He's also very well read and cultured, seems to be liberal, and has a nuanced understanding of people. If he didn't seem so different from the stereotype, I'd be totally dismissive of the idea of dating him.
There's a 27-year-old Iranian graduate student at my university that I recently met in a school related club, and I'm a bit interested in him.If you or someone close to you is currently in crisis or in an emergency situation, contact your local law enforcement agency or emergency number.Are you having trouble finding a Middle Eastern single person to love?There is nothing to worry about based only on his background. He was a gorgeous man...boy...was hard..breaking up with him was scary. I think if he had been here a few years it may have been different. The silent treatment and games due to his own insecurities and different cultural expectations was too much.Think of him more as an individual, he isn't some cookie cutter stereotype. yuuuuummmm Interms of 'dating but not marrying' outside race, I have two family friends with interracial marriages - one is a guy and the other a girl who married americans. He's still playing games today even though I've started to ignore him.Iraqis, I was told, prefer to date Muslims only for the sake of having someone to go out with but rarely would they want to marry anyone outside their race. He was not a citizen and I was leary about moving forward with him...while his family was lovely....having dinner with them at their home was a shock. They're not all the same, but I wouldn't take a chance again.
They still practice arranged marriage (which are related) and will not go against their families even though they are in love with the girl from different race. I'm a first generation Iranian and personally know Iranian guys and girls who have SOs of varying ethnicities. They spoke no english and used their hands to serve food. Because despite all of his wonderful qualities, I just can't handle being controlled like that.
Based on the little I know about him, this guy seems like he could be pretty different from the stereotype.
He's very nice and polite, he's respectful of women when they talk and treats them like equals in intellectual discussions.
Don't know anything about how traditional or religious he is.
I don't know any middle eastern men transplanted in the U. However I've met a lot of middle eastern women that moved here with their husbands from the middle east. Young, hot, & enjoying Half of their ex-husbands US holdings. Because middle eastern women are treated like 2nd class citizens.
We broke up, and ironically he married a white (Christian) chick about 6 months later. He ranted about all her shortcomings, and as he did I thought to myself "poor woman." Because all his gripes and compaints had more to do with her American customs than anything else. My point is that he did marry an American girl, but he had lots of issues that I couldn't personally live with.
