Dating in Bahrain

A+ A-

Just wanted to compare dating in Bahrain with dating in the rest of the G.C.C. SO this is more of a rant based discussion.

So I have been using tinder a lot of meet women. It has been a weird experience and I have been getting a few dates here and there.

But man have these dates been a disaster! I suppose you can blame the source of getting the dates? Maybe ... I mean where else can a person find dates in this country.

So far it has been a series of mismatch profile pictures, crazy women, and when you occasionally do find someone interesting she is mysteriously sick.

I also find myself often fighting off the most intense set of women as well.

This should about sum up my dating experience in bahrain.

So I was wondering are there any other ways to gets dates here... other than tinder or scary coffee shops?

  • That sounds rough! Although.... to be honest it's not much different than my experience using Tinder in the US lol

    Define "mysteriously sick," you mean she's using that as an excuse not to meet up again or she is actually sick-minded? I feel your frustration and I think it happens everywhere else in the region! I have tried a multitude of apps abroad, met up with INSANE women, resorted to scary coffee shops, not much better, and now I am just figuring out a way to get to know other lesbians through mutual friendships, and also abroad whenever I'm lucky enough to travel.

    If anyone here has better experiences or a good strategy (which doesn't involve hookups) then please share.

    Well, If you found any other methods of the above let me know...
    I have experinced the similar things as well,
    I think the most effective way in this country is referring I guess, but you will end up with few options or none
