I can highly recommend dating Lebanese girls. This is based on my friendship with many, even though I did not marry them. I lived in Boston and New York and there are is reasonably large Lebanese community. These women tend to be community and family oriented, Christian (Maronite Catholic 22% and Greek 8%), educated and well versed about the world. Most Lebanese girls are Muslim (Shia and Sunni both 28%) now as the demographics have changed but the expatriated in the west are usually not. They have Arab beauty and western culture, Middle Eastern cooking (Mezze) and morals. What else could you want in a wife?
However, a lot of people do not know this, Lebanese people are actually not Arabs but Mediterranean Phoenicians people. This is something else. They are ancient sea-faring people and even connected with the ancient empire of Carthage. They just happen to be located in the Middle East.
Combine that with the fact that their culture has a heavy French influence it makes them one of a kind in the Middle East, alluring and exotic. I remember in the 1960s Lebanon used to be the resort town for the rich and famous from France.
Where to look for Lebanese girls
- Lebanese online dating sites – There are manywebsites for online dating, but screen for quality. I would only sign up if they have a reasonable amount of real profiles. I think the best ones are things like Match.com and Plentyoffish.com – then screen for the words like Beirut or Brazil (10 million in stark contrast to 4 million in Lebanon) combined with words a Middle Eastern woman, would use, as this is where large communities are abroad.
- Beirut clubs to meet girls – As long as the political situation is stable it is fine to take a trip there. I believe in face to face meeting girls if possible, even over online chats. But again check the political situation for that month. Since 2008 they have been rebuilding and is fairly stable. As far as an Asian or Middle Eastern country for tourism it is interesting. Areas like the Kadisha valley and snow-covered mountains of the East as well as many clubs in Beirut nightlife make it worth it. You can actually go skiing there, real skiing not like in Dubai. Night clubs to meet girls in Beirut include: Buddha bar, Taboo, Void, Basement, Beirfuf, Music hall. My recommendation is any of the myriad of clubs in Monot area. You can try around Hazmieh near McDs, there are some clubs also. One of the best places in Beirut to meet girls is Insha’allah.
- Other women of Lebanon – Druze women, Palestinian women and Arab women , as well as French are all part of the culture. It does not matter, if you read my website you know I do not care about the ethic origins of girls for love, only who they are as people. This is also influenced by culture, religion etc. Further, you will meet many half French and Lebanese and half English and Lebanese girls who come for the summer and go clubbing. Although I do not know if they are marriage or wife material. There are a number of CIS (Russian) and other Eastern European girls in Lebanon, I think for the weather as working there is not the best. Also there are Syrian ladies there.
Cultural considerations when dating Levantine women
You can not just pick up women on the street like in the West and start chatting with them and get their phone numbers. Arab culture is conservative, it could be someone girlfriend or fiance. This of course does not apply if you go to a night club to meet girls, there anything is possible. Generally you need to also take your time with them. There is no way they are for guys into serial dating and being a player.
Other than that Lebanese gals will be happy to date you if you show any interest in their culture and even learn some Arabic. Some females are reported to be stuck up. I knew this one girl Collette from the gym. She was nothing special but she walked arround like she an Arabian princess. Just what I observed.
