The thought of courting (romantically) in Saudi Arabia is hard to believe, let alone casual dating. But believe it and me it happens quite a lot. In a country with strict gender-segregation rules and ultra Islamic-conservative practices it’s hard to comprehend the idea of
dating. Considering dating publicly is strictly against the law here, keep it discrete and you may get away with it. I am by no means advocating forbidden dating. I am a realist and truth be told, it happens. So, for all you single expats venturing out to Saudi Arabia this may in fact be the place you find your soul mate (cheesy, I know).
