Dating an iranian man
Gestures of affection that are common among Westerners, such as hand-holding or sitting together on a sofa, may not be appropriate.Talk with your partner ahead of time about the boundaries of social interaction. If you are a Western man trying to get acquainted with a Persian woman, keep in mind that Westerners (and Americans in particular) are often perceived as insular, arrogant and overly aggressive in demeanor.Just being aware of that fact should get you off to a good start.
This is not the case in traditional Persian homes, in which host and guest often engage in an elaborate dance of insistence and refusal known as tarof.
You don’t need a devoted partner who will love you as much as his mother loved him (which by the way, is a lot).
Find a guy who will embrace that side of you and encourage you to take all the time you want and need to get dressed because they too are taking the same amount of time meticulously gelling back their thick black locks. You haven't had much luck in the dating department so far so why not branch out and give Mohammad a chance?
I have found the husbands,wives and children of Iranian -American families who have met the challenge of holding both languages (Farsi and English) dear, able to cross a bridge which often times seems uncrossable without the language links to culture.
I have found an acceptance of families by both sides to be of paramount importance in establishing the family as a whole.
