American dating pakistani women
While she's never worn a hijab and restrictions are much more lax in her denomination, there are still some pretty big male/female gaps.Her brothers all got to the US on amnesty visas due to a feud with another family that had gotten a few male cousins killed and a female cousin raped, and her parents spent years helping her brothers get acclimated as well as the proper credentials (they're a reasonably wealthy family by Pakistani standards).I was so convinced that this was it, that I never thought to think about his individual qualities as a person, and whether or not they meshed well with my own, and the kind of life I had envisioned for myself.I overlooked so many red flags in the two years we were together.
I haven't dated any for significant periods, but the ones I've gone out with were intelligent and articulate..of like the white and hispanic women I've dated. Needless to say she was gorgeous, and from what I've seen the ones who are 2nd and 3rd generatio immigrants are just the same as other Caucasian women.
She was very reserved and modest in public, but as soon as you were alone at home or a hotel, she was nuts. It ultimately fizzled because, well, we just didn't have enough in common.
One experience that's still fresh in my mind was when I had a house party a few years ago: I invited my Indian friends and my new neighbor who's a Pakistani woman.
I once brought a box of Dunkin Donuts to a house of a Brahman family only to be told they don't eat them because they're made from eggs. She was born in Pakistan, but moved here in her early teens, so she was fairly Americanized. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this may have been a cultural thing, since every woman in her family was married ASAP and was a housewife.
Every time someone walked by with a dog - even if it was a little purse dog like a Yorkie or a Chihuahua - as soon as she saw it, she'd recoil in terror and yelp. They were all very nice, but it seemed like that was the status quo.
