Finding Love in a Hopeless Place

Before you get excited, no I'm not in love nor have I met someone, Well not technically. Sorry to disappoint, I know you are all waiting with bated breath for me to announce that I finally found me a man. You probably should breathe, it may be a while yet.

Like any normal person, when you move to a new place particularly after being single for far too long you begin to wonder if it is possible to meet someone. A new place holds the potential to find the ONE. The love of your life that clearly was not in your home town.
I've been wondering, maybe even hoping that this could be the place; that maybe I'll fall hopelessly in love with someone here and settle down.

Yesterday, I met a beautiful boy from Jordan. Serious eye candy. He was friendly and funny, even though he knows about 10 words in English. Haha, you should have been a fly on the wall for that conversation, you would have died. Him switching between Arabic and broken English and me speaking as slowly as I could in English. Many looks of confusion on our faces.

Here is the thing, he is Muslim and I am Christian.
Many of the men you will meet here are probably going to be Muslim, after all this is a Muslim country and the countries surrounding this one are also predominantly Muslim. Muslims and Christians don't typically marry. They don't convert and I won't.

Nothing may arise from this meeting between this boy and I but it made me think that this is how it may be for the next two years that I live here. There are lots of other beautiful men and I'm a single gal so I check them out but it seems it may be a hopeless situation.
I guess I can continue to browse the aisles but I just can't buy. Depressing thought. lol.

I suppose only time will tell how this all unfolds.


  1. Many have found love in the UAE. Just be patience it just may happen.

    1. Yeah, I'm in no rush. The situation just opened my eyes to the realities. What is meant to be will be.

  2. Hi Kahleel,
    Your post was funny and interesting.I was on a mission to find love abroad. As I learned about the cultural do's and dont's,I rationalized that GOD sent me here for a reason...Thus far, the only offer I had was to sponsor a Jordanian man and take him back to the US. It doesn't seem that bad of an option since he was going to pay a dowry... I'll keep that option open, only if it's in US currency. Maybe, we are sent here to change the culture of Muslims and Christians marrying as there are a lot of single women here with a few single men. It's like finding a needle in a haystack or similar to the odds in the states. Since the Muslim men are amazed with our beauty and curvacious bodies,maybe they will change and start marrying Christian women. Once we get over the religous obstacle, we can deal with the racial caste system...
    God where will you send me next....Asia?

    1. Thanks for your comment. I am on the same page with you on everything. Maybe I'll go to Asia after this too. Whatever god has in store for me, I'm totally open.
      Lol about the Jordanian, you never know. Best wishes.
