How to Tell If an Arab Guy Likes You

Updated on December 19, 2016

Arab guys are like other guys. It just so happens that you can tell very easily when an Arab guy likes you because his body language is so obvious.

Arab guys are not good at wooing girls. They were not taught to woo, but simply to marry a girl that he likes. If an Arab guy likes you and you are not Arab, do not expect that he will want you forever. Most Arab men will marry an Arab girl. Just enjoy the fact that he likes you and don't let things go too far if you don't want to be hurt.

Ten Signs a Guy Likes You

  1. He keeps on staring at you. It's easy to know he is staring at you because of his big, tantalizing eyes.
  2. He changes his looks. If he is an Arab from the Gulf countries and are you are in the middle east, he will improve his looks by wearing shoes. He will think that wearing shoes will make him look good. Do not expect him to stop wearing Thobe, because he won't. If he read on the Internet or someone told him that having some beard stubble is attractive to women, then he will have stubble all over his face.
  3. If he is fat, he goes to the gym to look good for you.
  4. You smell different perfume. He will stop using his Arabian perfume because he knows that your taste is different. You notice that he is now using perfumes imported from the USA or Europe.
  5. He makes a way to be closer to you. He asks the same question over and over again just to make a conversation.
  6. If an Arab guy likes you, and he is not shy, and he tries to touch your arms to get closer to you.
  7. He shows you his luxury car or other things to impress you.
  8. He is jealous when another guy talks to you. He looks at you as if he is your boyfriend.
  9. Other people notice that the Arab guy likes you. Wait for your friends or colleagues to say they think that the guy likes you.
  10. You feel it. Even if he doesn't tell you, your instinct says that this guy is attracted to you.

      Bullshit

      Not all arab men are like this, my GF is french and we are happy together, she was able to change a bit and i was able to change a bit and we adapted together some where in the middle, and i find it amazing to be able to adapt with someone from different culture and so is she, and about romance, dont judge from the gulf area, go to men from levant countries (palestine, lebanon syria, jordan) to understand what arab romance is, where you can find elegant arab men who really knows how to care and love and knows what does it mean to care of a women and make her a princes, i do admit that we arab might have jealousy, as it will not kill you, its somethinng that you will like by time and you will feel somehow protected, you will not understand untill you try, its not just being jealous to be jealous, what i can say is that you can find a lot of arab men who is really caring and a good lovers.

      So their is an arab guy I like at my work, and he likes me too. But he told me many time he don't want a relationship right now. He just wants to be friends and have fun. I know some of Arabic culture because my step dad is Arabic from Jordan when I was a kid. Anyway, I'm confused because when we work if he is in the initial area and can see me from his station he will stare until I catch his glance. Or if some of my friends boys and girls included he will stare hard. And he speaks for me if I don't say anything like yesterday someone asked me why do you want to date him or something like that and before I could answer we were just friends he answered for me. Also yesterday one of my male friends nudged my side and my shoulder to get my attention, and also made me laugh, the entire time I guess he saw what happened and didn't like it because he came over to give me a drink and stared at my friend as he walked by. I was really suprised because it was so sudden he never did that before except for lunch. I've asked him many times if he gets jealous and he states no, but to me his actions state otherwise. Like he is protective of me i guess the word is. I'm white and I know what he wants in his future wife. I'm not hurt over it even though I do like him. Lol. So can someone help me try to understand this situation ? Because he has told me of his culture (he came from Jordan) that they can have 4 wives but treat them all equal. However he always wants to come over to my house but doesn't want to bring me around his house that he shares with his brother and his other Arabic friends. And to also mention that one of his friends like me and the guy I like at work that I been talking about tries to outrule his friend. Lol what is going on? Please help me understand?

      I have dated many Arab man..and u shouldn't b serious with them. They just want sex that's it they think if u get very close with a girl and they act soo nice with u they will get sex from u.. then of they don't they leave you for someone else...same as if they have sex woth u they go back home ..because they can't marry you..and remember .. if you marry them they will use you...while your working with the kids and they are getting the cash they go off looking for more fun..thats why half of the time most Arabs lies about being single..if you ask any Arab man if they are married 100% they will tell you they are not happy who h is why they escape it for looking for someone to have fun with..

      Four hundred bucks may not seem like much, but to Lis it is a great start bescuae, as she says, the income has been consistent month by month over the year. She also learned that selling her quality content on Amazon protects her from needing to rely so much on Google as most bloggers do. “I can make money from my book on Amazon – without Google loving me,” Lis said.a0

      He will insist you to marry him. So unless they don't ask for marriage, don't jump into a relationship :-)

      How do I know if an Arab guy is serious?

      You can easily know if an Arab guy likes you because their eyes are very expressive. Some of them are shy and reserved while some of them are just player. I think he likes you but make sure he is serious.

      well we have stared at each other a few times and we was lookin at me wen i was talking to another guy., i hav spoken to his friend and wen i am with his friend his friend talks to him and he looks at me...maybe m being a bit over the top but i really like him even though i knw hes not perfect.... we hav never spoken to each other, i hav only even seen him talk to one girl but i know a lot of girls like him, i am normaly really loud n giggly or silly around him but he is normal he only laughs sumtimes with his mates but other times he mature.

      Once i think he was talkin about me cuz he was lookin at me n i was lookin at him then he was sayin sumthin to his friend and his friend turned around and looked at me then turned bak to him. i see him a lot n most of the time wen he walks past me he lookes at me in the eye

      If he stares to you a lot and his eyes looks even bigger, I think he likes you.

      Arab men are not allowed to shake hands or touch the arms or hands of the girl. But he makes a way to do it. Is it possible that he likes me? He always says hi to me.
