Why settle for a BMW when you could possibly get a Porsche next week? Didn’t your mama always tell you "you deserve nothing but the best?
"There is no denial that we have a love-hate relationship with dating apps.
Among UAE nationals - as the minority of the UAE's residents that are not expatriates are called - it is generally considered impolite for a man to speak to a woman he is neither married nor related to in public.
Traditionally, a young man's first amorous approach to a woman is supposed to be a marriage proposal made by his parents to her parents.
Moreover, dating apps made people you meet on them disposable and easily replaceable with a click of a button.
