Thread Name: BS: Dating Behaviour - am I out of touch ?
Subject: RE: BS: Dating Behaviour - am I out of touch ?
This will probably upset a few people if I say this, but the fact that the man involved is from North Africa may make the situation a little more complicated. Having had some experience in a similar situation I can tell you that the cultural attitude these men are likely to have towards women may be very different from the attitude of most Western Europeans or Americans. I had a couple of relationships with men from this part of the world and lived to regret it. They may be nice people but the deeper you get into a relationship the more they seem to fall back into the macho way of thinking they were raised in. Just a caveat. Remember that women in their culture are considered to be beneath men - period. And while they may expect sex from a western woman, they won't respect you after you get involved.
