Some Saudi girls go here “grocery shopping” usually with a friend or a maid in tow.
She will be donning her flashy abaya and most likely have very strong make-up on.
Any interested guys (all of them) will then have a chance to give her their numbers.
A couple that takes interest in each other must seem like they are casually picking up groceries while doing this to avoid getting thrown out by the security.
It’s sometimes hilarious watching these things going on in a grocery store!
Role playing Another tactic is pretending to be husband and wife.
The interested guy goes to the girl, grabs the cart and starts walking next to her as they were a couple.
They can chat freely while pretending to shop together. This way they could also leave together in the same car and drive to a house where the parents aren’t home.
This happened to me once, a guy just came and grabbed my cart and started pulling it from me despite my protests.
We were yanking the cart back and forth for a while.
First I imagined he thought that it was his but when I pulled out my mobile to call my husband the guy went nuts.
The countries strict laws on gender segregation make sure all contact between the sexes is minimized.
It would appear that there is no such thing as dating in Saudi-Arabia.
There are no movie theaters, restaurants and cafe’s are segregated by gender and single men are denied entry into malls and even parks.
