How to people in Saudi Arabia date if you're not allowed to be with unrelated mates?

How to people in Saudi Arabia date if you're not allowed to be with unrelated mates? Topic: What kind of cell phone case should i get
June 15, 2019 / By Camden
Question: I was reading on Saudi culture, and honestly, it sounds frightening. Public floggings, lengthy prison sentences for "crimes" that would seem ludicrous to the average American. I read a story about a 13 year old girl who's getting 90 lashes + 2 months in prison for bringing a cell phone into the school and attacking her teacher who caught her. There was another story about a girl who received 200 lashes plus 5 months in prison for being with an unrelated male and getting gang raped. So I wanted to know, how on earth can you date? Is it all arranged marriages? Is the way of life a constant panic attack? It seems scary...

Is the way of life a constant panic attack? No it's not. Please take into consideration that being brought up in a different society/culture than yours, people have a different view of things. What maybe sounds "strange" to you, is just normal for a person used to it. I really don't know why Americans mostly pick on incidents which happens once in a while like the things mentioned by you. These girls did something wrong regarding Saudi laws and received/may receive their punishment. The kind of punishment maybe can be discussed but I think it takes something to approach a teacher and it her with a glass. What that girl maybe do next? In case she will receive her punishment she might think twice before acting again. Anyway.....I might get constant panic attacks sending my kids to an American school where some schooting is going on, where my kids get aproached by drug dealers, where they have to carry a see through back pack for security reason, where I maybe get robbed, where I can't feel save walking the streets at night (depending on the area), where I have to check out if any child modlester lives in the neighborhood and where I will not receive proper medical care if not insured. Just to mention some issues. Are you not scared to live in a country with such a high crime rate? As you can see, every country/society/culture has it's pros and cons. How you see things just depends where and how you was brought up. Btw: Saudi girls don't date. Most marriages are "arranged", but a girl should not be forced to marry a guy she doesn't want to. Take care.

They don't date. Dating is not the most important thing in the world and I know it's hard for some people to understand that. A lot of young people get to know each other over the internet or through school, relatives etc.

Hijaz refers to the desert portion of Arabia, admitedly that is most of it, really the wilderness area. Arabia means land of the Arabs. While it is clear that the Saud family is not exactly the cream of the crop as far as rulers are concerned and that they are in the chokehold of the Wahabbis and stifle dissent I think that the name is appropriate. WHY????????? By naming the country after themselves they have shown , and are continuing to show, their arrogance. Hopefully their people will overthrow them and intall a government that is beneficial to the people over which it rules rather than merely to itself. PEACE

Well, I would totally go for the first floor apt. with the hook-ups for the washer and dryer. I've only had to use a laundrette once & over a period of a few weeks. So I know it can cost anywhere from $7 to $10 each time... if it's only clothing and for a couple of people. One time I had to do bedsheets and blankets as well because of a party I had which got out of hand and I spent over over $30 just that one visit. o_O So if you expect any company at all or plan on washing linens and drapes & such on any regular basis, then the extra $50 a month could be cheap in comparison to laundry costs. So I agree with the Baron on that. Plus there is the time factor. At home it's easy to just toss a load in and leave it and go about your business, whether it be watching Sponge Bob or making deviled eggs or cleaning up spilled maraschino cherries. lol Meanwhile, you either have to spend a bunch of time watching your clothes or else leaving them to the mercy of the laundry gods. lol To add... do you "really" want your clothes washed in the same machines as a bunch of complete strangers??? I mean, just what IS on their laundry?? o_O I prefer my own towels and clothes and pillow cases be washed in my own washer. I don't want the unsettling surprise of waking up in the middle of the night with my pillow case smelling like butt & having to ask myself "What is that spoiled grilled cheese sandwhich & cabbage smell and what individual with no societal conscience whatsoever left it for me?" Ungh! It's like using a public restroom. *shudders* The time I was using the laundrette I felt like I was wiping my face with someone's hairy butt every time I used a wash cloth. As far as privacy.. just put up drapes or shades. I mean is it "really" any more private to have a 2nd floor apt? The neighbors across the way probably have a telescope, high zoom camera or binoculars. Well, actually, they probably don't, but they might. One time I had a town house apt in Oklahoma City & I was on the ground floor and 2 walls were almost solid glass. I was asleep one morning with my boyfriend and suddenly I was aware that the lawn maintenace crew was outside watching us! lol I was butt naked & so I just waved at them and the pulled the comforter over us both and hid. lol Another time I was at my grandma's house.. and this was the house she had before the one she has now. It was an old Victorian house with many rooms, skeleton key locks and crystal doorknobs. It had many bedrooms & so one time I was visiting and just randomly chose a bed & it had this gigantic stuffed bunny on it with a pink bow around its neck. Anyway, she was having a new roof put on the house & I awoke the next morning to a tapping on the window and there were the roofers looking in laughing at me as I bear-hugged this huge gay rabbit. And I was on the 2nd floor. So I vote for the 1st floor. =) Omega
