Islamic women are not allowed to choose their dates and men must ask permission from the father, elder brother or elder male family member prior to dating a woman.In fact, the only way to date a woman from a traditional Muslim family would be on the sly.

Women who are accustomed to being dominated will soften when a man values their opinions.

Having been raised in a male dominated society they will certainly be flattered by a man who actually listens to their opinions and is willing to act on their wants and desires.

Because a great number of Islamic women do attend universities in the West you will interact with them so it is imperative to be able to discern if her family would take offense to her dating a non-believer.

How to Treat an Arab Woman on a Date The very first thing you should understand about dating an Arab woman is that she will likely demand a great deal more respect than her Western counterparts.

While the rest of the world was focusing on womens lib, the Arab nations were immersed in traditional Arab/Islam values and customs.

One thing that you will notice is that Arab women more readily defer to male dominance even though they demand your respect.

In the West we have trouble with this concept because women have been independent for a very long time.

This is not the case in the Arabic culture and perhaps one of the surest ways to win them over!

Modesty is of prime importance to Arabs and segregation is vital.
