Need the advice of Syrians, since I don't know any. I was born in Europe but grew up in the US. I went back to Europe and met a Syrian man there and fell in love at first sight....crazy as never before. So nothing happened and I told him I want to be his friend ONLY. He says he loves me too but can't leave his wife and I need to move on....does he just see me as a "loose American/Euro/whatever girl?"...he knows I am traditional person who doesn't sleep around.....how do Syrians percieve American/Euro women in general?

Well if you are pursuing a married man you are loose! That is why the world despises American women, you have no respect for others or yourselves, you are not raised with values or morals. If you had been you would have some dignity and realized that he is married!

Love at first sight across a vast gap in cultures is a recipe for impending disaster. I am surprised, in fact, that he wouldn't sleep with you first then dump you. But perhaps he's got "morals", like the preceding commentator suggests. What exactly did you have in mind? Him divorcing his wife, abandoning his children and following you? Or you just fucking him?

Being married and becoming a "friend" with a foreign woman is not exactly a Syrian tradition. People - especially westerners - confuse lust with love...

If you are after "excitement" and like the "exotic" in Syrian men, then hop on a plane to Damascus. There, you'll fine thousands of horny men ready to oblige; they all probably look like the object of your forbidden desire, and given the current turmoil there, you might be picked up by the Syrian Security and Intelligence men who would make sure you get a lot of sex, albeit unwanted.

Good luck.

This can only be a hoax, and if not, it should be.
You are either making this up or living in a parallel universe - the fact that you are American-but-born-in-Europe (well over 20 countries in Europe by the way, you could be more specific...) and he Syrian is totally immaterial. The fact that you are lusting after a married guy however is a bit of an issue, further complicated by the fact that you don't seem to be living on the same continent. Sort yourself out, lady...(with all due respect of course...)

Relax will you? How do you know how I was raised? Are you daft, the reason I am posting on an anonymous board is because, yes, my family would be upset if they knew, Westerners do think adultery is wrong as is being loose. Yes, I am a Western woman and if you bothered to read my comment you would see that I did not pursue him but rather left him and had no relations with him BECAUSE he was married and I would not wreck someone else's family (yes, Americans do think "home wreckers" are bad). And how could I pursue him if he lives on a separate continent? Do you not understand that even if a woman can control her body and actions, she cannot necessarily control her heart?

Some of you Arabs are really thick, but then he told me that once....

PS. I have a Turkish father who raised me traditionally if you are so interested and a wonderful, brilliant, morally sound American mother.

Another judgmental Syrian I see....he didn't have sex with me and dump me because he said he saw that I was the "nice girl" close to parents and anyway, I told him I don't sleep around (esp. with married men). "Morals" are not his issue, because wealthy Syrians in Europe all have mistresses, and I gave him crap for that. Basically, it was a weird situation because I felt more comfortable with him even without sex than with anyone else and we could talk forever about our feelings, politics, history, different cultures, etc. Yes, I wanted him to marry me even if it sounds stupid and I should realize as an MBA candidate that it statistically is most unlikely, satisfied?

Thanks for the "rape fantasy" but no thanks, and BTW, the man I liked had blue eyes.

Thank you for the respectful post. I appreciate it. I am a graduate student and working in law full time and am trying to meet someone nice for marriage and kids, hopefully I will forget him.

Nice to know what opinions you have of American women, while all the while enjoying American freedoms and living standards...enjoy the country, trash their women. I think it's what a lot of Arabs do in Europe too....that is why you all are so loved

Forgetting about him and concentrating on your career is the best thing you can do in my opinion. Plenty of other (unmarried) fish in the sea...
All the best

That's uncalled for. I am a white female and I live in the UK - I have yet to meet anyone from Arabic descent who hasn't shown anything but respect and common decency to me. Sweeping generalisations are never good, no matter what unhappy personal experiences you may have had to go through...

what do you mean? he came on with the racist remarks, saying how American (translate Anglo cuz he sure didn't mean Cherokee) women are loose, despised, immoral, without values, etc. Note I only said the man in question was Syrian, he came with the "American women are this and that" so I gave him a taste of his own medicine. You think they respect you so much, look on the Egypt forum and Morocco too and see how respectful they are to Anglo women.

I am a bit confused - who are you refering to?

I still think that trading insults is unhelpful and counter-productive, even if some Egyptian and Moroccan forum posters are out of line. I have also read some insanely racist comments towards Middle-Eastern people in general, and to be frank the 'Anglo women have no morals' argument is fairly tame compared to what they (men and women) have to contend with on a daily basis.
And I still stand by my stance - most people from Middle-Eastern descent that I have met have been as respectful as any other ethnic groups, and often way more than their Anglo counterparts.

That explains your crass and vulgar language. If you are Latina (which I don't think you are), go focus on the enormous number of pregnant, unwed welfare teenage girls that have about 7 kids with 7 different men by the time they are 24.

Why do you judge her? Who are you? She is right to judge you back.
