Dating an Arab woman is not the same thing as dating a woman whose family embraces the Islam faith.
If the woman is both Arabic and Muslim you have your work cut out for you if you are not a believer.
One of the most common mistakes that we make today is in assuming that people from one part of the world all embrace the same religion or philosophies.
Therefore, when seeking advice on dating Arab women it would be best to understand that you are probably thinking that woman is Muslim. There is a broad difference between the two even though they have many points of intersection.
However, Arab women will still need to be treated with much more respect than their western counterparts if you ever hope to make this relationship work.
Muslim Women If a woman is a member of Islam and her family is devout then it would be almost impossible for an infidel (non-believer) to be granted permission to date her.
Young women are not generally seen in the company of men unchaperoned and quite often their marriages are still arranged for them!
This is not always the case of Arabs living in the Western world as families here may have been assimilated into our culture to some extent.
Bear in mind that there are roughly one and a half billion believers in the Muslim faith while there actual Arabs can only be numbered in the hundreds of millions.
Not only will the woman most likely be labeled as an outcast but you will be viewed as the enemy as well.
Of course not all Arab women are Muslims so they will not all be governed by the same strict codes of conduct.
This is not the case in the Arabic culture and perhaps one of the surest ways to win them over!
Gaining the Respect of Her Family Even if the woman you want to date is not Muslim, you will still want to earn the respect of her family.
