Ok, I kid, but Saudi men can get very possessive and jealous.A second thing I need to point out is tribal thinking.Dating in Saudi Arabia is really no different in this respect, but there are a few things you should keep in mind. You should make continuous eye contact, but be wary of mall security at the same time.

If you’re a western guy, the Saudi girl will likely bombard your phone with pictures of babies.

If you’re a western girl, the Saudi guy will constantly message and never want any other man to message you, not even your father.

You can then do a global search for people in your area and message away.

Warning: It is very unusual for a Saudi not be married past the late 20s.

If you do encounter one that is older than 30, be careful. I also recommend you sign up for the dating site Muslima–it is a very easy way to meet a partner.

An expat living in Saudi Arabia should immediately register with their embassy and ask for a list of events.

since any “wrongdoing” (aka dating) by either men or women could bring shame to the entire tribe, and every Saudi belongs to a tribe.

Oftentimes, these tribes compete on an ethical level, and a girl who is found to have dated an expat, or slept with him, may suffer great loss of face for both her and her family. Lastly, due to kingdom’s very conservative nature, dating in Saudi Arabia needs to be approached very delicately.

Secondly, Saudi girls usually walk around in groups. You must remain very close when in the store, they can’t be seen approaching you.

The important thing here is how you look (your clothes), eye contact, and the lead away from open public areas.

Western Embassy parties are fun and facilitate dating in Saudi Arabia since veils are not allowed, and you will meet both men and women that are open-minded.
