Only due to the experiences I've had with them. Personally I find arabs incredibly good looking but those I've met come across as so controlling and quite clingy if you ask me... And that is even if you aren't even dating as well. Just noticed a pattern, and my friends have noticed the same, and its specifically arabs that happen to be like that most of the time. So yeah they are sadly a turn off to some extent.
I live in the UK, quite a lot of arabic people here.
Not at all. My boyfriend is Egyptian (Arab) in with ethnicity, he grew up here in the United States though (no accent or "cultural" differences as obstacles). I find his dark features VERY attractive. I will say though that I WOULDN'T want to date an Arab guy that followed middle eastern customs or was a hardcore Muslim. But that has nothing to do with his looks, just too much of a difference in basic outlooks. Oh, and I live in the Midwest.
