Why Saudi and Kuwaiti Men Are Dating Moroccan WomenBy margotmarrakesh
Moroccan women seem to hold a special charm for many Saudis and Kuwaiti men.
The most commonly heard talk in Morocco is that most of them come to Morocco for hoped-for “sexcapades.” They are not free to meet girls in their own countries, and the relative openness of Morocco makes it an attractive tourist destination for the Gulf men. While some marriages do take place, the reality is that many Gulf men are not interested in marrying someone who they “spent time” with before marriage, according to much of the discussion on the topic which can be found HERE. Here are a few of the comments I found:
“For Kuwaiti men, Moroccan women are the forbidden fruit.”
“Moroccan girls are poor and they live badly back in Morocco.” (So, for some, it’s all about the man’s money and gifts.)
“They are fit and seductive, don’t nag the man, and are cheap to maintain.”
“Beauty, grace, intelligence all of it there. So, why a Moroccan girl? Well, I think the veneer of European joie d’vie along with that innate Arab charm does it.”
“It’s not totally their fault; the Moroccan girls don’t go and look for these guys; it’s vice versa. The guys come look for them. These guys travel all the way to Morocco. A Moroccan girl won’t take a six-hour flight to date or get to know guys. I don’t think so.”
Conversely, very few Gulf women are interested in a relationship with a Moroccan man; in fact, most seem to be prejudiced against it. Gulf women (like Muslim women everywhere) are looking for a serious marriage partner, and they (or their families) are not interested in any but a Gulf man.
“I’m a Moroccan man living in Chicago. Women from Kuwait and Saudi are racist. I used to chat on the internet with Saudi women, in English. But when they found out I am Moroccan, they never wanted to talk to me again. Arabian women look down on us. They only want Arabian men. The only other countries which can accept a Moroccan man are Algeria and Tunisia.”
Unfortunately, the high-profile rich Gulf men often give a bad name to those lower-profile Gulf men who are actually interested in a serious relationship, or even marriage, with a Moroccan woman.
Nouafel thinks,“If you want to marry a Moroccan girl, make sure you have some money a nice car is a bonus too…Moroccan girls like money and most of them will even give you sex for a dinner, or some dirhams! If you promise her to marry, you will hit Jackpot most likely. Every summer when I go on vacation, the Moroccan girls try to make eye contact, or they start doing something for attention, not only with me, but with almost all foreigners. However, I could NEVER marry a woman from Morocco. You would never know what she did in the past.”
“Do Moroccan girls have some kind of figurative magic by which they attract Khaliji men? According to Najat, no. They don’t have any magic. They (or some of them) are simply too “free” which is a huge pull for a “non-free” man; a man who grew up in a restrictive society.”
So, why the attraction to Moroccan women?
According to many Saudi and Kuwaiti men, Moroccan women have a magical charm, compared to the women back home. One Gulf man (3wwad) put it this way,
“Moroccans (Men and Women), really treat us nicely, and it seems very sincere. Even if the aim is financial, they do not treat us like a wallet, rather a person with a wallet. Moroccans are kind, charismatic, and polite from my experience. I found a few bad apples but we all have them. I have had the pleasure of meeting beautiful women from all over the world, both in the arab world and out. The women who can match the Moroccan women’s charm and sincerity, compassion, kindness, sexuality, cuteness (for lack of a better word) are few to none. They treat us very nicely and sincerely and we are not used to that. Our girls back home treat us like wallets too! The only way you cant get anywhere with girls there is if your initial are something like LV, or you have a name like coach. It’s all about the money and shiny gifts, unfortunately.”
A Moroccan woman from London commented, “There is somthing diffrent about Moroccan girls compared to Algerian or Tunisian or even Libyian girls. THEY HAVE SPECIAL CHARM! What I mean by that is they know how to talk to men.”
Another comment,“Moroccans are good people. They love people. We didn’t grow up in wars and hate. We have been living in peace as long as we remember. Living in peace make people friendly and loving. Moroccan women and men are both good for marriage. Moroccan women help their husbands and take care of them. I can only marry a Moroccan woman because she will make my life easy and less stressful.”
