Dating An Arab Man

Dating an arab man Jan 12, 2009
i'm a filipina, and i met an arab man. he's an intelligent man, a major turn on for me. my friends had been telling me to cut whatever communication/ties i have with him. they said that arab men cant love, and will only use me for sex. ive read lots of horror stories involving my fellow filipinas being abused in arab countries, but then i'd like to think that not all arab men are bad. i happen to have a very high regard for Muslims, and i have wonderful Muslim friends.

this arab man told me he loves me, and would want me to come and join him in dubai, or him coming over, whichever is sooner. i felt that 'love' is too soon, i want to get to know him more. i'm torn coz i kept on remembering wat my friends told me, but at the same time, i want to give this guy a chance.

im confused :(

true not all arab men are bad, in fact some of them are really sweet, gentleman, caring & family oriented. but you have to be careful cos most of them are looking only for transitional gf while they are being arranged for marriage by their families.

i assume that you have not seen him so it depends on exactly what your expectations are. are you looking for marriage? the title is quite confusing cos you posted dating an arab man but you said this"would want me to come and join him in dubai, or him coming over, whichever is sooner" connotes that it is leading to marriage.

Are you saying that you're going to marry the guy? since it is forbidden to live with a boyfriend/girlfriend here in Arab countries.

i have seen him, in pictures.

confusing title? i dont think so. but let me clarify sumting: coming over for a visit. does that mean marrying? not in my book. but i dunno how it goes in dubai. if coming over means getting married, no, i dont wanna get married yet.

@ArchitectRoel: i think he mentioned sumting about gettimg me my own flat/villa...that is, IF EVER, im coming over

Hollyy Coww!!!
You never met him..for goodness sake wake up kabayan!!
1.Unmarried couples: If you get caught living with him in the same room/flat/villa by the police you be imprisoned.
2.Visit visa is only last for a month.After that youl be penalized per day!

Be careful look before you leap!

Aisha, hate to say it, but open your eyes and don't be so naive!

To get involved with someone you've never met like that, is sooooo dangerous! How do you know the pictures are even him? There are some serious weirdos (from all over the world) trawling the internet for unsuspecting victims!

Don't do it, no way, no how!

And anyway if he's a local guy, sad to say that he will only want one thing from you, and to keep you on the side for fun, that's all you'll ever be.

Kick him to the curb, wake up and don't be so gullible.

Sorry if ths seems harsh, but this is how some people end up in a box!

nah its ok....dats why im asking opinions in the first place right?


ive had relationships wid some foreign guys,but not wid a middle eastern/arab. all i heard were horror stories.

@ArchitectRoel: im pretty sure it was him. you see, he is a friend of a former officemate. but our interaction is limited online. so the pics that he sent me was his, according to my former officemate. the former officemate was the 'bridge'


thank you for your comments guys....im kinda sad but you are right :(

coming over for a visit? then what? like what architect roel said tourist visa last for a month only. non-renewable. he must be a rich guy if he is getting you a flat... extremely rich i must say if a villa on your own. i hope he did not say in the marina.

whoops! posted after aisha responded. good thinking girl...

i had him checked. i have friends in dubai who know their way around. yup, he is rich.

im not totally daft as u might think.

all i want to know really is what arab men are like. if seeing the goodness in any person is stupidity, then im guilty. u see, im just the type of person who doesnt think like 'all arabs are terrorists', etc. yeah sure some maybe @**holes, but im sure there are decent ones?

dang, im actually starting to get scared :?

Ordinary people can get a villa/flat since the contract is only rentable for 1 year..He says getting her a flat not buying her a flat/villa.

Aisha7. I don't know if you are for real, but lets assume you are. Listen to UAEKid above. He is the only local who has responded to your OP so far. Please don't get hurt.
