American woman dating egyptian man dating trip
So, this week I begin a series called “Men Every Big Girl Will Meet”. She’s from the south, she has blonde hair, big green eyes and a chunky frame.
I went to grab a cup of coffee the other day when I heard her talking to one of the other interns.
Some of these foreigners are single and like to live their travel experience to the full by sampling romance with Egyptians.
Such relationships may be common, especially among foreign students spending a long period of time in Egypt, but they are often laden with complexities both on a daily level and in the longer run.
"Would you like me to tell you the difference between making love to an Egyptian woman and a European woman?
" "Mike", my driver in Luxor, leaned forward and gazed sincerely in my eyes. They have sex for two minutes, just to relieve themselves, and the women lie like boards.
"One woman taught me how to use your mind to control yourself--she said, look, just concentrate! Now, I can resist for about an hour." "And Egyptian women? "They're all circumcised here, so when you sleep with a woman, it's like sleeping with a piece of wood.
They have never slept with tourists." Mike shrugged over his beer.
She was also chubby during a time when size conveyed a certain social/economic status.
It depends on social class, but some Egyptian girls would like to be in a relationship with someone less complicated or demanding than an Egyptian guy.” Some believe that Western culture provides for some looseness in the relationship as there is not as much social pressure to legitimize the relationship into an immediate marriage.
But cultural expectations also extend to other aspects of the relationship.
When women married, they depended on their husbands to make all decisions, while the women themselves were depended upon to carry out household chores.
Married Egyptian women were expected by their husband's families to bear children, but particularly males.
