Dating in afghanistan dads ten commandments for dating my daughter
He showed me around the city, but most interestingly he told me about Afghan dating.
It's amazing how un-free you are to do what you want here.
it's just sobering to meet people who are so ignorant of the culture of the country they are living in, and so unwilling to learn.
I'm leaving today to Mazar-e-Sharif, and looking forward to the big BIG city, the first major city I'll have visited in about a month.
He told me about his girlfriend, who he thought he recognized by her gait, but was mistaken.
He converses with girls, but without looking at them.
I love Afghanistan because it's certainly the country that's retained it's culture more than any other I've visited.
I will be enrolling in a language class but for right now Im looking to meet someone who speaks at least some English.
As we would walk, he would point to a girl and say, 'ohh, she's very beautiful.' and all I could see was a blue burqa.
I'd ask him how he knew she wasn't a 60 year old toothless woman, and he'd say 'I went to a wedding 6 months ago where I saw her unveiled, and I can recognize the way she walks.' which was amazing to me.
We were walking along and seeming to look off into space he spoke several sentences and a one girl in a cluster of burqas replied. His girlfriend he can only see in cover of darkness, because if anyone sees them, it would be a scandle. He estimated to me that about half of the women in urban Afghanistan are prostitutes.
He also told me that all men sleep with prostitutes before they are married, and many after they are married, and this doesn't seem at all immoral to him.
They were all carrying state of the art assault rifles and looking very paranoid.
