Dating & Romance

No problem getting a Moroccan boyfriend. Date a girl though and you date her whole family.

Moroccan women are gorgeous but they’re a package deal. You could well meet a girl from university and date her but you’d be expected to marry soon afterwards. And that means marrying half her family also who would then need loans, visas to Europe etc…

Moroccan guys get big status kicks out of dating Western girls but you’d be hard pushed to find any that know the first thing about women’s rights. You might find more open-minded souls in the more modern cities of Casablanca and Tangiers.

Moroccans are all Muslim to a man but it’s rarely that strict here. In the cities you’ll see women walking around in tight jeans and it’s not taboo for young couples to have discreet relationships. Virginity should still be preserved but the guys tell us they get creative.

The Moroccans are very confident and have a good deal of charm and style to them. Not many women here opt for veils and in the cities may prefer jeans. To this extent in the major cities Morocco can be as sexy as it gets in the Islamic world. Head out to a night club though and you’ll see just a bunch of guys in their cool, fake Levis.
