Dating egyptian american men
Then these boys grow up and are exposed to the opposite sex in an abrupt, often sexualized way. This is definitely seen in how they treat not only women, but everyone around them.
The consequence of this is a lack of understanding of women, a lack of comfort and often, a lack of respect. There is a courtesy, consideration, chivalry and thoughtfulness in how they act, behave and engage with others.
The dynamic may or may not move into a serious relationship, but they are not trying to gather other options or back up plans in case it doesn’t. Americans (both men and women) have been socialized to play games, to act unavailable, to wait a particular amount of time before texting back…
There are a set of ritualized rules that are abided by in American dating culture, and if you don’t play within them, you are labeled as desperate or needy or undesirable.
The American way is loud and even arrogant at times. Call it the revolving door or hedging – there’s the idea in the American approach to dating that there’s always something better around the corner.
With European men, if there’s mutual interest, they keep seeing that person and don’t keep hunting for better options simultaneously. Nor will they freak out when discussions of commitment or future come up.
We must take a look at who we are drawn to in the first place, and why.
If you keep attracting (and are attracted to) men who are emotionally unavailable and who treat you poorly, then it really doesn’t matter if your dating prospects are from France, New York, Vancouver or Mars – the shift needs to occur within you first and foremost.
You can very well be born in America but have a more “European” mindset and vice versa. Perhaps this ‘score mentality’ is for bragging rights, perhaps it’s for validation so they can feel wanted and desired, or perhaps it’s a pure ego play.
The two cultures are so far apart in customs and values that it seems like they would not actually marry.
Especially since one, the Hindu culture, traditionally forbids unnaranged marriage, marriage outsid eof the religion, marriage outside of caste and also marriage outside of their percieved race. In fact I'm sure that in this world there has to be atleats one example, although i doubt it will be a documented fact, because of the sensitive nature of the subject. One, because the answer posted was short and trite.
Two because I myself joined an interracial dating site and was e-mailed by a Pakistani man around my own age who is successful here in the states and grew up in Pakistan.
We've been plannig to meet but I am somewhat leary for though he applies very progressive beliefs about the world and has found great success in doing so, his home culture is very explicit about forsaking dark skin and entering into a marriage that is NOT arranged.
