Nah - this isn't even booty-call level. This is below that standard....
There are no more relationships in Kuwait. People don't date. They don't need to. They just get on the internet (programs like Instagram, WhoseHere, etc.), meet and then you can send them money for phone sex or a web cam session.
I don't date anymore. Honestly because I'm so revolted by how degrading everything has become. No one wants a decent relationship anymore. They are obsessed with their "smart" phones (used by stupid people). Most have multiple phones with multiple applications under multiple names. "Playing the field" has now become "playing the region". All from the comfort of where ever you happen to be at that moment.
Disclaimer: I have been living in Kuwait for a long time and I don't know how to rate it against dating back home in the US currently, so I can't say if it is better or worse or the same. I'm just writing about my perspective and what I see here and now.
I met a guy recently through friends - and through the canine world. I met him on several occasions with his father. They seemed like decent people and it was a decent way to meet. We exchanged numbers. So I started calling the guy and asked him the usual questions, 'Do you have a girlfriend,' etc. His answer was the same that I've heard from many-a-man lately: "I don't have a girlfriend. I have friends." Translation: I have a lot of hook-up girls that I just call on for sex. "I don't want a relationship." Wow. Ok. So... you're showing interest back at me for the same reason? The guy was into phone sex - that's it. That's the extent of his contact. When that wasn't to continue, our "friendship" was over. Pity. I liked him for a while.
I was really shocked when my x was scammed on webcam having sex and being videotaped by what he thought was a cute girl he met on the internet. Turned out to be a guy who wanted to blackmail him. This was a huge blow to me - I still find it hard to believe. It was no big deal to X. He thought nothing of it. And why should he, I guess? He does it all the time. Everybody seems to be doing it all the time.
(My mother calls it "The New Religion": Head bent in worship of the mighty cell phone.)
My friends at the farm talk about me behind my back. I know this. And it isn't deceitful or mean. They don't intend any harm. They just all find it hard to believe that I don't have a man around - and haven't. My dear friend recently said in front of me (making a face that could have been referring to an injured kitten), "(Desert Girl) isn't lucky in love."
Ooooooh nooooo, that's not the problem, girlfriend. It is that I'm selective. I'm not going to put up with all the same bullshit others might be willing to adapt to. Nope. Her boyfriend, for example, is a very close friend. I wouldn't put up with the way he treats her. Hell to the no. I love him as a friend, but in a romantic relationship - no way.
I'm not going to bring some average guy who won't last a week with me back to meet my friends and family. I'm not going to be known like some of our other friends who bring "flavor of the week" around. Not this girl. If they rank the friends and family stage, it is something serious.
But alas, I doubt that's going to happen at all in this new/modern Kuwait environment. Ick. Phone sex, web cams and booty calls in the middle of the night. No thanks.
