Ok, I kid, but Saudi men can get very possessive and jealous.
A second thing I need to point out is tribal thinking.
Finding love and dating in Saudi Arabia is not as difficult as many expats think.
The important thing here is how you look (your clothes), eye contact, and the lead away from open public areas.
Dating in Saudi Arabia is really no different in this respect, but there are a few things you should keep in mind. You should make continuous eye contact, but be wary of mall security at the same time.
First of all, you are not legally allowed to just walk up and talk to a girl. Follow the group or, if they are following you, make sure you occasionally make eye contact to signal interest, and then go somewhere discrete, like a unisex store. Saudi girls may initially be shy, but many won’t hesitate making the first move (kind of a paradox there) and hand you their phone number.
If you are American, go to the embassy gift shop and inquire about their events (sign up to the newsletter too) 😉 You can also buy a event membership there.
Some countries automatically add you to events when you register with the embassy. A little more direct, but highly effective, is meeting your future lover in a mall.
