Aside from one terrible blind date, I have never dated an Iranian guy- even though I am in fact an Iranian.
(Note: In case you were wondering, Persian and Iranian are in fact the same thing).
these holidays are marked based on three different calendars: Solar, Lunar, and Gregorian.
Stop those outfit sanctions; you’re not being protective, you’re being a hypocrite.A pleasant scent and color, together with its savory taste makes it popular all around the world, and with its wonderful benefits, it gives a special beauty and smoothness to the skin and face, and yet with other magic characteristics, it aims for winning even more fans from different peoples and nations of our world.Of all the things that are Persian, perhaps the most popular one is a Persian rug.It was a Thursday night in Istanbul and I was sitting on a patio at a going away party with three Persian cousins: two men living in Istanbul for graduate school and a woman living there who works as a journalist. So it’s forbidden by law, informal dating when you’re not married. The men explained that when a woman gets married she decides on an amount of money that the man owes them if they get divorced. Also they’re graduating a lot more from university, to the extent that if a girl and boy are both applying to the same department at university, they’ve lowered the standards for the boys to try to even it out.I didn’t want to turn playtime into work time but the opportunity seemed too ripe to relinquish. How often do we get to share a beer and actually try to understand each other? I told them that I was writing about dating cultures in different countries. But you know, everything forbidden is more interesting.” I asked how dating is different for them in Istanbul than it is back home and both men instantly replied that it was way easier to date back home in Iran. ” One said and laughed, but then added more seriously, “Maybe they feel more freely. But because they are so repressed, they go to extremes to compensate. They’re totally dressed up and made up and with the hair… They’ve got like three boyfriends, they’re always screwing around… They explained that the right of divorce is the man’s, but that most middle and upper class men sign a clause in their pre-nuptial agreement giving their wife the same right. The graduation rates are like 62 percent girls.” I walked away from this conversation a bit rattled and sad.
