    There are many many British / European guys who love middle eastern girls, most men really don't care where you come from, attraction is attraction after all, plus this country is beyond diverse anyhow =]

    I'm from a (relatively) liberal Middle Eastern country, currently in my first year at uni. I was raised in a Muslim culture but I'm not religious at all and I'm usually attracted to European guys. However I feel like they back off when I tell them my home country. I'm not really into boys from my culture, but I may also come across as being reserved compared to British girls as I don't wear revealing clothes or get involved in casual hookups.

    Anyway title says it all really.
    You will always face the problem of 'white guys' being wary of you once you tell them where you're originally from and most probably wouldn't want to be in a relationship with someone,like you, who's from a muslim background and has muslim family etc.
    That being said,you can give it a try,i'm sure some would love to and others maybe not so much.
    where in the Middle East are you from?

    I'm guessing they wouldn't want to deal with, what could be a very religious Muslim family.

    Yes but Turks aren't all that religious,it's a secular country.

    i meant why dont you just date a middle eastern man.
    Surely your cultures would be the same,like the same music,food etc
    Here's your answer:

    I wouldn't automatically turn down a guy just because he's Middle Eastern, but after living in a Muslim country for 20 years I've come to the conclusion that misogynist values are so deeply ingrained into the minds of men in those countries that even the most enlightened of them may have shocking thoughts. Simple example: a survey was conducted at the top uni of my country and roughly 70% of the respondent men had sexual intercourse before, yet they almost unanimously said they would want their wife to be a virgin.

    Also, as superficial as this sounds, I find it kinda daft to look for men from my culture after travelling all the way to the UK, as I want to settle down here for good.
    tl;dr: Middle Eastern men are more often than not too closeminded for me and they're so booooring :P (ofc there are always exceptions)

    Well my family isn't religious either (in fact one of my parents is an atheist) and yes I'm Turkish. Our country is more or less in a gray area between Europe and the Middle East. Especially the big cities are largely modernised but it's still a fairly different culture from Western Europe.

    Thanks for the positive responders by the way

    Hell no. I grew up as a Brit in the Middle East, and I know that if I was lucky, the girl would just get in trouble and get told off. If I was unlucky, I'd end up upside down in a gutter somewhere.

    Because she'd have to hold the "Sorry I can't date you; you're white" mentality against the majority of boys in the UK?

    Well she is right, Turkey is a bit between Europe and Middle East and more open minded than other Muslim countries, but it still hard to find a rightly open minded partner. She was right about the survey about sex before marriage. Noone really honest about being open minded, and can be the one easily judged by others. This leading some Turkish people to have a non-Turkish partners.

    Of course we should be wary.

    anyway there is a HUGE difference between an Arab and a Persian.. so it depends

    What country are you from?

    I'm Palestinian, and Christian. I look middle eastern, and have tanned skin, dark eyes and hair. However, I love white guys, especially with light hair and eyes, and none have never shown any hate/dislike to me or my culture.

    I hope you have good luck! xx
