If you have been to the Middle East, what do you think of Arab and Turkish guys? Could you hold a conversation with them, or they only want to talk about sex?

  • I thought men from that part of the world are not suppose to talk to women that where not related to them.

  • I have met them at school and they barely recognize you and feel they do not have to I also work in a hut on campus in the parking and they are not into the greeting or conversation at all. There is the rare one that will say hi. Its okay we are all entitled to our own customs so I just thankyou and move on.

  • I've never had that problem with the ones overseas. They are always very curteous and respectful and most of the time will try not to even talk to you since there are religious reasons for not talking to non-relative women. The only ones I've even had that problem with are the ones that come here to the states thinking all women in the US are loose floozies who do it with anyone at the drop of a hat. They are the minority though even among the ones who come here to the US. Most are among the most respectful I've ever met.
