Does anyone know how possible it is to date and build a relationship in Kuwait?

No. I meant among expats. For instance while I am sure there are rules against it in Dubai, I feel like it would't be that hard to pull off. Just wondering if it was the same in Kuwait.

Not sure. I'm fairly certain that if it was amongst other Western expats it wouldn't be difficult as long as it was heterosexual.

Depends what mood the government is in. In the UAE it's actually illegal for unmarried unrelated couples to share a hotel room, for instance, and the government CAN still legally do something about it, even if they often turn a blind eye. Pre-marital sex is technically illegal there. I assume Kuwait is similar.

That I know. I just mean like meeting up to go to a movie or have dinner or something. Also how often it happens that people do meet there.

Really? It seems the govt must be turning a blind eye to the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of prostitutes working all the bars and clubs throughout Dubai then. For that matter, same thing when a person goes to Bahrain and Qatar.

I think I heard Kuwait has a no alcohol allowed policy, so maybe there aren't even any bars at all.

Anyways, there are places that all those prostitutes must be taking the guys they meet. Dont know where, but the prostitutes are everywhere, and they wouldn't be there if they weren't making a lot of money to afford spending so much time in the bars and clubs all the time.

I'm in Bahrain now. On the weekends especially, the KSA license plates outnumber the local ones. Especially in the areas with bars/clubs. I had a friend who was stationed in Kuwait for 3 years and would come to Bahrain to party/vacation.

Prostitutes? I've not heard about that being widespread in Dubai, nor did I see any of that, but I wouldn't be surprised if there are women who are clandestinely working as such. Definitely, as you will know laws are only as good as those that enforce them, and I'm sure a lot of officers of the law are bribed to turn a blind eye. The ex-pat community is sometimes like a different world there.
