Assuming that the girl is really open to learning and accepting his culture and religion, even open to the idea of converting to Islam.
I think I want an Arab boyfriend.
I like this Iraqi guy in particular and he seems interested in me but I'm not sure yet if he is just hoping to sleep with me, or if he wants more. We have not kissed or had sex or anything like that.
He grew up in Iraq and then did his postsecondary education in Canada.
I feel like if we dated, it would be difficult because of cultural differences and other people being racist and negative towards our relationship. But I like him and he has been really sweet to me so far.
Most Helpful Girl
I am uniquely qualified for this one. Dated a Palestinian American.
A Muslim man can date any one who practices religion in The Book (as in Bible, Torah, Qu'aran). Chances are, however, he will marry within his own faith. There are exceptions with individuals, however. Mine was divorced from a Christian and dated Christians.
He is a peace loving, passionate guy who cried on 9/11 and is anti-Muslim extremist in every form. He taught me that Muslims were the first to give women rights of any kind; sadly extremists twisted things to what they are now which is in total opposition to the original teachings.
Mine is American born, which makes a big difference in his views on dating.
He treated me like a treasured princess, was never anything to me but kind and gentle. He changed my views to the point that I realize there is no blanket statement to be made about every person in a religion.
When he would get aggravated (playfully) he would curse me out in Arabic (dang you, woman and such). I don't know why that tickled me so much lol.4
