When you fall in love in Egypt, you’re almost in trouble.
You can go out together, but you can’t kiss in the streets.
You can kiss at home, but the porter won’t allow him to come upstairs.
Because girls are not allowed to have male guests, and vice versa.
If your porter allows him to come upstairs, he will probably have to leave at some point because he lives with his family and can’t spend the night outside.
He’s probably engaged, he’s probably going to get married to an Egyptian girl.
If this is the case, you will be “his little secret”.
And if he’s single, he’s probably not willing to marry a foreign girl.
If he wants to marry a foreign girl, it could be because he wants to leave Egypt. (I said it could be. This is not always the case… But you have to be smart to understand.)
When you want to have a holiday together, you can’t sleep in the same hotel room unless you’re married. Yes, this is Egyptian law.
When you’re a foreign girl and you go out with an Egyptian guy, you’ll get “that look” from people a lot. Many people here just think we are sex machines (because I don’t want to use the term “whores”. Ops, did I say that?).
Even if you’re single and you’re going out on your own you will get “that look” a lot.
Some guys may want to be with a foreign girls just to have sex, but will never stop telling you they love you. It might be too late when you understand they were lying.
When you fall in love in Egypt, you fall in love in a mostly chauvinist country. You might not get as many attentions from him as you would like. And he will even think he’s doing great.
Beware of the ones that tell you “don’t worry, I am one of the open minded ones”. They will use this in their favour.
When you fall in love in Egypt, you’ll have to face many more obstacles than in the western countries.
It might not be the case, but sometimes it happens.
Therefore I’d say, it’s much better not to fall in love in Egypt.
