World Guide to Dating

Researching “Pashtun people” on Google (I’m reading The Kite Runner and wanted to find some photos of Pashtuns, actually) I found a very interesting site that I could not help but share. I am off the market, but I still find sites like this absolutely fascinating for the insights to men, women, and dating they can offer. Reading about the deets on international dating, and how crazy, sane, horny, repressed, or casual people from other countries are? I’m in there like flynn.

Check out a few samples of Road Junky’s Guide to World Romance and Dating. Good stuff.

Argentina:

Argentine guyArgentine guys have suffered from the neuroses of dating the women for so long that they too have gone nuts.

On the other hand that means you will get special treatment from them for not being a crazy Argentine girl. It’s not hard to find an Argentine guy, they were always trying to kiss my American girlfriend whenever I left the room.

Nico, is this true?!

Morocco:

Moroccan women are gorgeous but they’re a package deal. You could well meet a girl from university and date her but you’d be expected to marry soon afterwards. And that means marrying half her family also who would then need loans, visas to Europe etc…

Moroccan guys get big status kicks out of dating Western girls but you’d be hard pushed to find any that know the first thing about women’s rights. You might find more open-minded souls in the more modern cities of Casablanca and Tangiers.

Moroccans are all Muslim to a man but it’s rarely that strict here. In the cities you’ll see women walking around in tight jeans and it’s not taboo for young couples to have discreet relationships. Virginity should still be preserved but the guys tell us they get creative.

The Moroccans are very confident and have a good deal of charm and style to them. Not many women here opt for veils and in the cities may prefer jeans. To this extent in the major cities Morocco can be as sexy as it gets in the Islamic world. Head out to a night club though and you’ll see just a bunch of guys in their cool, fake Levis.

Pakistan:

Yeah, right.

If you’re a woman looking to date a Pakistani guy, you could probably take your pick. Not only are white women exotic, they’re also a ticket out of the country. Don’t expect your potential partner to know anything about women’s rights, freedom of religion or foreplay, however. Pakistani couple

Ok, in Karachi and the upper classes of Islamabad and Lahore there exist classes of people who are more world-conscious but it’s hard to meet these kind of people when you’re on the road; they live in walled communities, protected from the masses.

If you’re looking to fall in love with a Pakistani woman you’ll be risking a rifle down your throat in much of the country. The newspapers in the south occasionally feature the story of a runaway couple from the Pathan country and the murderous pursuit of the girl’s relatives.

Pakistan just isn’t the kind of country where you’re likely to get a date.

Peru:

Peruvian girls are sexy, stylish and fun [ ed. – ahem, you don’t say? ]. Peruvian women are romantic and you’ll never go wrong by buying her a dozen roses or taking a midnight walk through the plaza arm in arm… and don’t forget a bottle of good Argentine or Chilean wine.

Go ahead and say every cheesy line you can think of in Spanish – at the very least she’ll think you’re cute and will like you for it. Too many Peruvian hearts get broken by travelers though so don’t lead her on by saying you love her unless you really mean it. Honesty really is the best policy.

You can also read about how Korean men between 30-50 are too busy with work to date, Hungarian girls are mysterious, and how alcohol and Kiwi dating go hand-in-hand.
