Maneuvering through the abundance of young, beautiful, well-endowed women in Jordan as a poor, white, non-Muslim foreigner is a bit like walking through a Mercedes-Benz dealership without a dollar to your name. After hearing of one of my futile attempts to court a local woman, an American friend looked at me and laughed. “That’s a dry well man!” Luckily, I took my vow of chastity early. Male-female relationships differ significantly in Jordan; they’re quite patriarchal (so for females planning to date Arab men—be prepared to be “taken care of”) and public displays of affection are haram (forbidden).
