Not so long ago, these kinds of relationships were anything but normal. In case you are this entrepreneur, make sure that you give me at least one million as a little thank you. (No seriously, do it)How could the expatriate movement possibly change the tech industry? Well, I guess thirty years ago her parents wouldn’t have approved this relationship.
People would talk about you, they would say things like “just look at these two” and they would judge you for your decision to date outside of your race and outside of your country. Well, there are still some people who judge and who gossip, but more and more people accept international dating as the new norm. The guy next to our house had a relationship with a beautiful Brazilian woman. I want to talk about how normal it was for me and for others to date outside of their race. Of course I could be completely wrong, but I predict that there will be way more long-distance relationships in ten years than there are now. That was a time when every white guy was seen as a sex tourist and every Thai woman who dated a white guy was seen as a bar girl.
In response, the government has announced it will gradually decrease its dependency on foreign workers.
Its social affairs and labour minister Thekra al-Rasheedi said: “The ministry will take decisions and measures aimed at reducing the number of expatriate workers by 100,000 every year for 10 years to reach one million." Expats are now left in no doubt over Kuwait’s feelings towards foreigners with its latest plan to dramatically reduce numbers.
Nowadays these relationships are lot more normal and accepted.
Or, if you find the locals too different, you can find someone from your own culture in the same region to hook up with and compare notes with or chat about "home" with.
I have heard the same from a good friend of mine who lives in Brazil.
He also told me that a couple of decades ago every Brazilian woman who dated a Gringo was looked at as if she was a prostitute.
The wealthy Gulf state currently hosts 1.8 million foreign workers, the vast majority employed in the private sector.
Explaining the reasons behind the plans a spokesman for Kuwait’s labour ministry said: “It’s part of the ministry’s efforts to regulate the labour market, curb the phenomenon of marginal labour and restore the demographic equilibrium of the country.” No new work visas will be issued from April 1 under the new regime although it is unclear whether existing visas will be renewed once they expire.
