W hen I wrote last month about western stereotypes of Arab men, several commenters, including WeAreTheWorld , suggested that Arab stereotypes of western women would also be worth exploring. Just as Arab men are stereotyped and pigeonholed in the west, western women hover somewhere between myth and fantasy in the Arab world. Like the traditional orientalist image of the harem , Arab views of the contemporary western woman are also highly sexualised. In fact, many Arab men, particularly those with little contact with the west, have this fantasy of western women that comes straight out of Playboy magazine or the grainy images of pirate pornos. In this view, western women are oversexed, promiscuous and have revolving doors in their knickers. This can lead to hassle and harassment for western women travelling or living in Egypt and some other Arab countries, although in places like Yemen men will either just stare or the western woman will become invisible like the local women, as my wife found while travelling alone through the country. Of course, given the potent mix of sexual repression, poverty, ignorance, the growing disappearance of the traditional model of respect for women and the failure to replace it with a modern equivalent, you don’t have to be western to be harassed on the streets. Some men will hit on western women out of the conviction Ahmed described, while others who understand the west better will do so out of simple opportunism, hoping that they will “get lucky” with a woman from a society where sex does not carry the same heavy restriction for her as it does for her Arab sisters. In fact, some men want the best of both worlds: a bit of fun with western women, then settling down with a traditional local woman. Another form of opportunism is the allure of escape.

In countries across the region, men are legally allowed to marry anyone outside of their religion. For men, interfaith marriages are in line with Sharia law, and societally widely accepted. Women on the other hand, are required to provide proof that their previously non-Muslim spouse converted; otherwise the marriage is not valid. With the world becoming more and more globalized, one would assume that interfaith marriages would become increasingly common, and that more Arab Muslim women would open up to the idea of dating, and even marrying non-Muslims.
But is this really the case? To find out, we talked to five Muslim, Arab women about their thoughts on interfaith dating and marriage. Maybe my mom would be cool with it, but my dad would probably freak out. It took me years to get to the decision to let go of the stigma behind dating outside my race or culture. Through heartbreaks and disappointments, I finally came to realize that in the end, all we really should be looking for is how good of a human your significant other is.
Dating (Sort Of!) As A Modern Muslim Woman
I exist in many spaces as a Muslim woman and play countless roles. Just kidding! My parents have always been somewhat progressive. The biggest rule, which was heavily enforced: no dating, ever. In my house, dating was the most condemnable act, right after becoming a vegan socialist sorry, mama. In my formative years, I held that narrative very close to me, and it eventually became part of my very confused identity.
They’re usually not into black girls. Well once an Egyptian Arab guy liked me and I’m mixed race: Spanish, black and white. I don’t really look.

Rama, a Syrian in her twenties, came to Germany with her mother last year to escape the horrors of war. She’s learning German at the advanced level at the moment so she can prepare for university study. She is only not used to seeing small things, such as kissing in public. However I can not act like them regarding romantic relationships, as I am a Muslim from a Muslim family and I want to maintain the customs and traditions that I grew up with.
She then adds: “Romantic relationships and having kids should be confined to marriage. I will only get married to an Arab man, as a large cultural gap exists between me and the Germans, the easiest part being the language! Rama knows exactly what she wants, but the situation is different for others, especially teenage girls. Sara has been living in Germany for about two years now.

Our relationship was entirely through my second language , Arabic. At first there was nothing forbidden about it at all — we met, we did the right thing and approached her father for permission, he gave us the green light, preparations for the engagement ceremony were made — everything was perfect. That was until a bunch of unforeseen problems came our way that threw a spanner in the works and brought the whole thing to a halt.

So there’s this Arab chick at work who I recently started talking to. Good looking girl, and the mutual attraction is definitely there. I’m thinking about asking her to hang out outside of the workplace, but I’m kinda hesitant. What type of things should be expected dating an Arab girl?
