Most Western women living alone anywhere will tell you that they won't allow anyone into their homes without determining that he is not an axe murderer first; or at least that he won't show up at your door drunk at 3 am and wake the neighbors (as happened when I first moved into a non-secure building in Salwa years ago).Wouldn't it be easier if you could just find out from the beginning?Many men just don't want to get married, leaving the single girl to wonder if she should invest time and effort in the relationship, or to get out and look for another that might be more "serious".
For example, if you are a single woman living alone in Kuwait, you may not want a man you only recently met to invite himself to your home under the assumption that it is "okay" because you are "open minded".
Kuwaiti women are intelligent and likely want to find out if her mate is intellectually compatible and if it will be a suitable love match.
What happens if he isn't the "right one" and a divorce ensues?
Dating someone outside of your own culture has pros and cons.
On the upside, it is interesting and there is always something to talk about.
