I have created this blog to post about my experience in online dating . I have been using online dating to find "The" man and recently I have been using the dating sites in a research am doing for work. The experience has been so overwhelming that i could not just keep it to myself.

Do You live alone ?
From my favorite co-dater
Ku- wait-a-minute! dating
“Do you live alone?”
If you are a single and non-Kuwaitiwoman living in Kuwait, lots of men think that it is acceptable to go back to your place to date.The #1 question I get asked is “Do you live alone?”followed by, “why don’t we eat at your place instead?”No…. because I don’t invite strangers to my home – ever.And I don’t invite a lot of people that I know well, either.If I’m ready, I’ll invite you.If not, don’t ask.The next step is to get the look of confusion/dismay.I’m sure that they were all ready to come over and get right to business because (according to the twisted mentality) “it is okay in your culture.”Emmmmm….. Says who?
The trick here is to flip it:“Do you live alone?Where do you live?Oh, with your family?What time should I be there for lunch/dinner?”Nervous laughter from him usually ensues and dude usually says something like, “Uh, but you can’t.I live with my family!”So??What makes you think it is okay to come to my home if I can’t go to yours?But hey, if it is too much of a problem for you, I am ready for you to take me to a nice restaurant (without a cabina) now….
