Will I pass as Middle Eastern?

Just spoke with a man from UAE and I was so puzzled and shocked by his response. He said I looked like the Filipino workers. I assumed he meant mixed or more affluent Filipinos who don't always look like the majority population but he said I would be considered a regular full Filipino. Here in the S...

This is the most sarcastic forum I've encountered. Is it an Arab thing or an expat thing or the mix of both? Yeah yeah I know what I am but how would you like being of English, French, Irish, Norwegian, Spanish, Lithuanian descent and having people tell you that you must be adopted, have lying paren...

Would somebody just tell her she looks cute, which is the only reason you'd post your picture on a forum full of strangers.


Apparently it seems all non-Arabs look alike in Dubai so it doesn't matter because you see me walking by every minute. :roll:

I already mentioned I was from the States. So does any female have the 'hooker' reputation. I'm assuming the UAE natives don't but is everyone else 'hooker' reputation by default. Is it that bad for women?

Unfortunately it's a sad fact that many nationalities get stereotyped here very very quickly, just the way it goes unfortunately. Russians, Uzbeks and Morrocans have the same problem. Yes you do look slightly Filipino, I'd never say that Bjork look Filipino to be perfectly honest. I have a few Dutc...

If someone wins my heart, I'm very loyal, patient and trustworthy. I won't treat that person like a god but good enough without getting psychotic. That's as romantic as I get. Now if I don't love someone which is almost all the time, I'm not romantic at all. Romance is a waste IMO if it's not for so...

erm ok, but being from a certain country, doesn't necessarily make it your original ethnic background, like someone could say they're British but be black, or Asian, Chinese etc in actual origin. There is rumor in the family I have 'original' American ancestry like Blackfoot or Iroquis. Don't know ...

^So overall is Dubai a nice place. Are you native or there to earn money to leave? Are you guys retired? Do you live in this luxury? Is it nice living in a country with preconceived stereotypes? I know there are stereotypes everywhere but you guys make it appear more extreme in Dubai. I'm a simple h...
