Another, a 29 year-old British expat who is Christian, married and has lived in Saudi Arabia for two years, says that she and her husband had to sneak around.
Saudi Arabia currently has the world’s Nikia Johnson, who works for Whos Here, said in an email that Saudis use the app to make and meet new friends who are in their area or when traveling, as well as to chat and meet with people for dating purposes.
ith the help of Susie Khalil, an American blogger living in Jeddah, we conducted a Facebook survey of current Saudi Arabia residents to get their views on dating and the apps that enable it.
Most described a culture seemingly incompatible with a service such as Whos Here.
In their view, older generations are mostly unaware of such apps and disapprove of dating itself.
As for men, they are forbidden from approaching women they don’t know.
Being caught alone with a man who isn’t kin can put a woman in some serious hot water.Her reputation and marriage prospects could be out the window.
