Lately I've heard of some heartbreaking true stories from Western ladies that were new to Kuwait and dated Kuwaiti men. Most of this I read through emails that were sent to this blog and they wish to remain anonymous.
I decided to post this so readers can comment with their own experiences and offer advice. It's shocking how incredibly smart expat women move here and suddenly lose their common sense on what is wrong or right when it comes to how a man treats you. Just because they speak another language doesn't give them the right to treat you like a doormat.
I really felt sad reading the last email I received and I hope this post might shed some light on what to look out for when you date a local man. Not everyone has a circle of friends here to give you the 411 of what the majority (not all) of men are like in Kuwait. I was lucky because one of my first friends in Kuwait (who is like my second Mom) shared all of her knowledge with us to prevent us from making huge mistakes.
Anyone can comment on this post and please feel free to do so anonymously. I would appreciate it if some local men could offer their advice. Share your game player! ;) This might help the female newbie’s in Kuwait so they do not have to learn the hard way.
BB sent me the article below of a case that happened in Kuwait back in 2005.
