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.
While I don’t imagine that you share intimate details about your relationship with the world, keep in mind that things that are no big deal to you, may be more personal to them.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.You’re on a conservative trip and you expect her to cover-up.
