Men in Egypt

All the subtleties of relationships that can be encountered in Egypt cannot be described. This article is only about patterns, about what is most likely to be expected if the topic of an Egyptian man becomes personal. These are generalizations based on personal observations and other people’s experience, that’s all. The main conclusions and actions still remain with those who want (or do not want) to build a worthwhile relationship.

When you move to live in Egypt, you begin to understand how many people here are involved in various kinds of international relations. There are really a lot of resort romances, love stories and marriages between Egyptians and foreign women! I repeat, you understand this when you constantly see around various pairs of German-Italian-English women with Arabs or read countless forums about unhappy love and insidious animators somewhere in Hurghada. Before that, you seem to know stories about romance with Egyptians – but this is perceived as a well-known fact, as an abstract cliche about southern countries and hot men. Real life is far from abstract, and does not fit well into generally accepted definitions.

Egyptian Men: Why It Is So Attractive to European Women

We will not dwell here for a long time, a matter of taste: preferences for the color of skin and eyes, masculinity in its basic understanding, excellent potential in sex, perhaps a touch of exoticism and expectations of an oriental fairy tale. Everyone finds their own reasons to fall in love with an Egyptian citizen. There are plenty of outpourings on this topic: “to feel like a woman”, “eyes black as night”, “he alone understands me”, “he only needs my love”, “I’m behind him like a stone wall”, “he will solve all my problems “… You can go on and on. Each one invents her own fairy tale, or even begins to oppose Egyptian men to European ones (not in favor of the latter). Forgetting that in fact, a man of ANY nationality can make his woman beloved and happy, no matter what the color of his eyes is and how tricky he says compliments. So to the listed reasons for the excessive amorousness of foreign women, one must add one more, important: at home (whether in Europe, America) there were simply no options, they did not like them. And the virgins go to meet the only one, not really understanding their possibilities to arrange life in their native country, which they immediately begin to persuade about the insolvency of their men. Only one advice can be given to such girls – it is basic: you need to understand yourself, love and appreciate yourself, and love life with all your heart, and then look for a man for yourself. If you rush into a relationship with an Arab just because it is more accessible, internal problems and “dislike” will not resolve it … expectations.

Where interests converge: the motives of Egyptian men

Firstly, they like this notorious Slavic appearance, they like the character and unpretentiousness of Western women (for example, there are legends about Others – this is a woman who will fall in love without memory, and will arrange the comfort of the house, and burn it out in bed. They also have their own delusions ;)) In addition to purely physical sexual interest (also exotic), many Egyptians are deliberately looking for a European as a friend because of the difference in mentality. Many are attracted by girls who are more relaxed, independent, with a broader outlook, with less pretensions. There is an opposite side to the same coin: non-Egyptian girls are more obedient, loyal, unpretentious wives. But this is already the “next level” of assessment. The first priority, let’s not forget, is the ability to have sex without problems. Arabs – yes, more preoccupied. They have more testosterone. They are less concerned with other questions of the universe. They want sex more in general. This is most often determined by their interest and attempts to win the girl in any way. Those who rate a potential girlfriend as, ahem, a person are much less, but they also exist. There may be another reason mixed in, which in general is easy to calculate from the intentions of a man. Europeans in general lead a relatively more prosperous life: the ability to travel, fewer personal and family responsibilities, and a higher standard of living in general. Egyptian men, too, sometimes expect that an affair with a Western woman will suddenly solve their problems. In general, they can be very sincere about the girl, but the thought of improving their position in life remains on the subconscious. The primary reason may be the nationality, not the personality of the girl. This must be borne in mind. They want sex more in general. This is most often determined by

Different categories: there are no fairy tales, here is the same life and class differences

We come to a painful topic. In Egypt, men are DIFFERENT. As in any country in the world. There are shameful losers, there are adventurers, there are successful men, there are many others, for every taste and all with their own goals in life. Generalizing them all under the concept of “oriental lover” or “real muschina” leads to many misconceptions. Social classes in Egypt are even more clearly divided. And concepts such as education level, occupation, life interests, income level and family relationships remain BASIC for determining the character and intentions of an Egyptian man. No, I’m not against a huge and all-forgiving love, but if we are to get involved in interethnic relations, at least appreciate the social roots of the prince. Too great differences in education, outlook, income level and basic values ​​- and there is a great risk of disappointment,

A significant number of Europeans see only the resort side of Egypt. And these are mainly service personnel from villages and poor urban areas, tourist guides – who generally live on squeezing money from tourists, and souvenir sellers, for whom every foreigner is a walking wallet. There are completely different orders, you can completely plunge into the rest, forgetting that you are in a Muslim country. In the same place, novels are twisted, which immediately turn into long-term relationships and even marriages. Then you can read the forums about the “black lists” of Egyptian bred, offended and abandoned girls, children taken hostage, and other darkness. Everything starts out the same: “he only said what I wanted to hear, and immediately offered to marry.” Why, for example, the same girl will not have the desire to IMMEDIATELY marry a visiting worker, or a janitor, or a boy from a dysfunctional family, or a resident of a distant village Vasya, but for a black-eyed waiter / animator / instructor / seller of garbage – please. I am not belittling the importance of anyone’s profession … but where do illusions and shattered dreams still come from as a result? Imagine such a boy comes to work as a cleaner – from his village, where in the literal sense subsistence farming is conducted, conservative order and hopeless poverty reign. And now he sees five-star hotels, sparkling with cheap marble, white women with money and quite friendly. At the same time, he is also obliged to serve everyone – Violent men, loose tourists, German drunken merry fellows, and other vacationers, deeply hating them in their souls. Of course he understands that if he does not use this chance while he works in the resort, he will have to go back to the poor. And the boy has already felt the taste of easy money and affordable women – and of course, bright feelings with such a combination of factors are hard to find here. However, the girls believe and marry … I saw a mother, quite pleased with herself, flying with a child from St. Petersburg. She is married to an animatra and lives with his parents in a rather poor quarter of Cairo. The girl smiled and looked happy. That is why I don’t presume to judge, I wish everyone happiness – but before falling in love and moving for the sake of a man to another country, it makes sense at least to ask about the young man’s past and family … And you don’t need to give them money))) light feelings with such a combination of factors are hard to find here. However, the girls believe and marry … I saw a mother, quite pleased with herself, flying with a child from St. Petersburg. She is married to an animatra and lives with his parents in a rather poor quarter of Cairo. The girl smiled and looked happy. That is why I don’t presume to judge, I wish everyone happiness – but before falling in love and moving for the sake of a man to another country, it makes sense at least to ask about the young man’s past and family … And you don’t need to give them money))) light feelings with such a combination of factors are hard to find here. However, the girls believe and marry … I saw a mother, quite pleased with herself, flying with a child from St. Petersburg. She is married to an animatra and lives with his parents in a rather poor quarter of Cairo. The girl smiled and looked happy. That is why I don’t presume to judge, I wish everyone happiness – but before falling in love and moving for the sake of a man to another country, it makes sense at least to ask about the young man’s past and family … And you don’t need to give them money)))

From the poorest adventurers to the middle class. Basically, there are not so many of them, they live in big cities, speak English well, are advanced in using the Internet, perhaps even work “in a company.” Unfortunately, ambitions often still run into the standard “I want to leave nah from here – to Canada, Italy”, no matter where – a clear unwillingness to live in their own country makes foreigners see a ticket to a happy future. Less trick can be expected from such, there will be no clear and cruel calculation here. Most likely, just a desire to steer from Egypt will be superimposed on quite sincere feelings for a visiting foreigner. And then how it goes. Sensible boys can easily arrange their life and work abroad by marrying a foreigner. Clueless – well, they can be good housewives, I guess.

However, there are people who are quite satisfied with themselves, moderately traditional, who see their way in getting an education, working and certainly marrying a good girl, most likely an Egyptian. Such a socially approved and well-trodden path. They are not tempted to leave the country. Such men are usually real Muslims – they do not drink alcohol, respect family values, and honestly abstain from sex until they get married. Oddly enough, there are not so many of them among the urban middle class)))

The wealthiest and richest men differ little from the same wealthy Western men. They have no problems with self-identification, they are quite happy with the country in which they live – money and the ability to travel provide the necessary mental comfort. You will not surprise them with foreign women, they work in international corporations or for themselves, travel, they can safely go to Egyptian resorts to relax with the same tourists. In general, they live their own lives and can be completely different people, pleasant and not very pleasant, but the lack of an enthusiastic or prejudiced attitude towards foreigners makes communication with them much more comfortable. Marriages with foreign women happen, most often for love. They can, however, include their social assessment – how well the bride passes by the standards of the family. Of those couples that I personally saw are quite harmonious marriages, with their joys and problems. The broader outlook of both partners (that is, tolerance) makes such an alliance strong enough.

Common features of Egyptian men

Even dividing everyone into classes (forgive this snobbery – but otherwise how to identify the differences) – one cannot but say about the common features of almost all Egyptians. They are based on culture, common attitudes towards family and women, and cannot be ignored.

Egyptian men (as well as women) can really speak! Words are the most powerful weapon, they revel in long and emotional conversations, it is a matter of honor to overthink another. Often the impression made is enough; actions after loud promises may not follow. And this, by the way, is a very simple way to evaluate a man – as a potential partner. Words can remain only words, do not believe the effect produced. Spending time together and seeing the person in action is essential if you are going to enroll him in a close circle.

Family is very important to them. An Egyptian man cannot be on his own – if his intentions are serious, you will be introduced to numerous relatives. And after you get married, you will become a member of a huge Egyptian family. This is such a “bonus” – in addition to the beloved man.

Egyptian men, in general, are indeed more emotional and even infantile. It boggles the imagination when you start to get rid of the clichés about “real Arab men” with their cult of masculinity. Yes, they take responsibility for the family and for their woman, perform the male functions of a protector and earner. But their behavior is sometimes very emotional and manipulative. They are not always honest and straightforward – this is contrary to their culture. You can hit your head against the wall, but you don’t get a clear answer. You will be persuaded to play mental games and guessing games, speak in vague hints, and manipulate your beliefs. This has nothing to do with their feelings, they can love and appreciate their woman – it’s just that many do not know how to do otherwise. Most likely, you will have to get used to – or end the relationship if such communication becomes unbearable.

They are very traditional. Even the most advanced and unconventional))) A few examples: an advanced boy, the son of an oligarch, owns his own company, has traveled all over the world and hangs out endlessly in Sharm. But – he is married to an Egyptian, and she gives birth to his children. What is this all for? And so, there are the temptations of the big world, but there is a tradition and a family, and the family must be respected – no matter how you play tricks with tourists there.

Another example: a quiet, wealthy, well-educated Egyptian who has been living and working in France for 20 years. He studied in Scotland and still remembers his dashing student years with a smile. But when the time came to marry (at the age of 30 – relatives began to push), he was picked up by a girl from a wealthy Egyptian family. And, of course, a virgin. He still took his wife to Europe, although her family resisted. But again, devotion to tradition is evident.

We must not forget about this. Even by marrying a foreign woman, most likely, the Egyptians will arrange family life according to local traditions. This is home, children, household, visiting parents – a completely prosperous life, if someone chooses it. But there is hardly any other choice.

Another important factor, common to almost all Egyptians, is the almost complete absence of reflection and craving for self-education. Maybe someone doesn’t need it at all – there will be enough everyday questions to occupy consciousness. But People are somehow inclined to talk about life, read something confused, yearn for no reason, think about the fate of humanity. Most likely, it will be difficult to share this with an Egyptian man – they are more down-to-earth, simple in their perception of the world, they are not so often interested in what happens outside of their traditions. There is nothing wrong with that, but for someone it can affect the relationship. There may simply not be enough heart-to-heart conversations, because – well, how can they understand the soul …

In general, if you start a relationship with an Egyptian (I’m talking about relationships, not sex in resorts), first of all, do not forget all the simple truths of life. You need to get to know a person before you associate your life and your plans with him. They are different – this is a fact, some beliefs will have to be sacrificed if you want to be a strong couple. And there is already a choice for each – is it worth it.
