Don’t shoot the messenger guys, it’s just a reality.
On the flip side, dating in the major cities is easier to nod into the seen and “not see .” Living in Marrakech, I was able to meet and befriend 20-something year old Moroccans, both guys and girls who dated other Moroccans or foreigners. Personally I know some people whose families are more comfortable with their young adult children bringing their “best friend” home.The best way I can put it is that there’s a kind of “don’t ask, don’t tell” mentality. In my own experience, I only became aware of teenagers crushing on each other from my pseudo-village confidante position being the only American in the village.They assume as an American I’ve dated so they would ask me questions about it but knowing its considered inappropriate in Morocco, I’d keep their secrets and give general advice but I avoided giving specifics like “How many boyfriends have you had? ” Another reason I didn’t really engage in discussing dating in the villages I lived in was another cultural tidbit you might not know about.Whether religiously they or others believe it is right or wrong, it exists in Morocco just like anywhere else in the world.But it’s definitely not as publicly praised or flaunted like in other countries.This might feel like a lot of balancing and juggling of religious values, cultural perspectives, individuals’ opinions and societal customs- – but on the day to day, we’re all just living average lives and trying to find happiness with someone.
While dating in Morocco is far from “smooth sailing” or “perfect”, is dating really easy anywhere? This post is not the all-encompassing guide on dating in Morocco, but I hope it will shed light on some stereotypes and give you a different perspective on a topic that is usually hush-hush.
On an almost contradictory point, I should point out in big cities some couples actually live together.
Illegally I should point out but again it doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen.
They go out to eat in the Medina, they go clubbing, they study together at university, they hang out at festivals and other public places…they just don’t bring their current significant other home to hang with the parental units. A variety of reasons for this come to mind: embarrassment about dating and/or who they’re dating, having super traditional or religious parents, and dating a foreigner or non-Muslim or non-Jew (don’t forget there are Moroccans Jews too! This is also visible for mixed couples like myself and my significant other.
I was simply introduced as “Brenda” and we actually never expressed we were dating or exclusive.
A lot of establishments will ask you for your marriage certificate and if you’re not married you can (and likely will) be denied to stay there.
