There's an Arab girl I like and it's obvious she is interested too. We were texting today and she asked me if I was going to this event tomorrow... I told her I wasn't sure. She then informed me that her mother was going to be there and that I should "try to come" - that was one train of thought, so it was pretty obvious what was being implied. She has told her mother about me already in the past. It's kind of a cultural thing for me to meet/win over her parents before any "dating".
My questions are: is that what she meant, AND any advice?

Well...you could just go for it...I'm Arab and have been in a relationship with my non-Arab BF for almost 2 years...I've hid it from my family...it's been working out so far, but I'm going to have to tell them cause we want to get married...
So, you never know, something could come of it...but it most likely won't be easy because dating is looked down upon as well as physical contact between a man and woman...they shouldn't even be alone together...If she doesn't have her family around she may be more open to it because her reputation can still be in tact...
Yeah..my BF didn't know how to approach kissing me either...we had been going out for a month and a half..he hadn't done it so the day we became "official" I told him he could kiss me now...was very awkward because I'd never kissed before...
My best advice is to just go for it...invite her out for coffee...then keep asking her out...and see how things develop...make it really casual to ease her into it...then if things go well let her know how you feel. I suggest not to try and kiss her right away...maybe start off with hugging.
I could tell you all of the things I did, but she is an entirely different person, so the same techniques may not work...plus I was born in the US.0

She wants you to make it and meet her mother. I, personally, would try to go and be as open-minded and accepting to their culture as much as possible. If her parents are going to be okay with you, it's much more likely to be because you're being respectful of their culture rather than trying to Westernize their daughter.1
