This article is about dating in Saudi Arabia (KSA) is very much targeted at the men doing work in Saudi Arabia who want to date Muslim Saudi girls and females of other countries. This is targeted at assisting them to find a woman here in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and includes lots of advice and stories given to me by others here in the kingdom – not my own encounters I promise. For that reason the stories may be overstated or complete fiction – or maybe they are totally true, I will let you be the judge!
If you are female and wish to date a man then I am sure the guidance here could be applied similarly as well, but you should be aware that where some men may just be smacked on the wrist if found performing something they should not; it is probably that your penalties would be severe. You could quickly find yourself in prison locked up for deportation / removal with lashes to withstand every Friday for your sentence. Most women found in the business of men, particularly foreign women from less wealthy countries will be charged with prostitution and jailed appropriately before being deported from the kingdom. If you are deported for these factors you will find that they will stamp prostitute in Arabic in your passport. If you are a wedded woman, just don’t take the risk of dropping your head over some young attractive man.
But that apart, it is not difficult to go on dates in KSA and meet some very charming women here, after all I met my wife in the kingdom where she had worked well for ten years as a nurse. Have fun while dating women and Muslim Saudi girls in Saudi Arabia but stay very safe at all times.
The Guidelines of Dating in Saudi Arabia
Dating in Saudi Arabia can be quite challenging, as you are aware, you can only be alone with a woman if she is your wife or primary blood relative therefore mixing with women is very challenging in the open unless you have nerves of metal and very lucky!
If you are captured with a woman who is not your sister, mother, daughter or wife you are going to be in big problems, she in even worse! You can very easily be caught for this offense and if any lewdness is claimed you could be finding yourself spending some serious time in jail or worse!
Should the woman be married and Adultery is claimed the penalty is death, despite the fact that this is normally applied only to the woman! Should you actually be sentenced to death by stoning for this violation you will only be hidden to the waist, should you be able to escape then you are free, women are hidden to the neck, but can also win their freedom by escaping! This is most likely not the best ending to a romantic date in Saudi Arabia!
Meeting a Girl in Saudi Arabia
You can be fearless and take risks, many individuals do when dating girls in Saudi Arabia! It is in fact quite rare for a westerner to be stopped and challenged about the woman he is with, despite the fact that it does happen. But be reasonable, you are a westerner, being associated by a fully veiled woman will raise a few doubts, best for whoever you take out on a date in KSA to behave in a western way even if not western, so no veils and uncovered hair.
A westerner strolling with a Filipino or Indonesian girl will attract quite a few stares, particularly in Riyadh which is far more traditional than other cities. This can be unpleasant for the woman and there is the potential for someone to say anything. Many Arabic women look quite western so there are fewer stares, but they are more complicated to date, Going out to dinner or a walk around the mall and a quiet romantic coffee can be achieved but little else, getting a room is quite difficult, requiring your ID and so on! The hotel is not going to turn a sightless eye to you bringing a woman to your room I promise you! I do know one hotel in Riyadh where you can get from the vehicle parking to the rooms without being seen going through the lobby – if you need to know just message me.
