I stumbled upon this interesting article on the paper, it’s basically a local study that discusses how marriage and relationship/dating scene has drastically changed in Kuwait in recent years due to many factors. Let’s admit it, Kuwait is indeed one of the most flirtish countries in the world, a quick drive on 2nd Ring Road or Gulf Road can show you what I mean. However, the article focused on the seriousness of street flirting in comparison with other ways/places to start a serious relationship like work place, campus…etc. Apparently, relationship and social experts all agree that street flirting in Kuwait rarely end up in marriage or serious relationship rather than playful short term type of affair.
“Clearly many are now against the arranged marriage (the traditional way) lest that such way doesn’t give enough time or space for potential partners to get to know each other better, but getting to know someone on streets is even worse” states social experts. So I suppose the so called “Love Street” can be called “Bluff Street”, what do you say?
