Driving 3al Khaleej: A Male Guide

I dedicate this post to all the guys who drive 3al khaleej.

The “She’s Not Into You” Manual

Dear Kuwaiti (or Khaleeji visiting Kuwait) guy, have you ever found yourselves in the presence of a beautiful girl in the car next to you? Do you often find yourselves getting mixed signals from her? Are you sometimes confused as to whether she wants you or not? Well this manual is here to clear up any confusion you might have!

Here are the “sure-fire” signs that indicate when a girl is not into you:

1. She doesn’t look at you. At all. Not even once. Not even a hint of a glance in your direction. Please do not hallucinate that she is looking at you and making “come hither” signs with her lips and eyes. She is not. Please do not assume that by ignoring you she is playing hard to get. I repeat, SHE IS NOT.

2. When she speeds up. She is not initiating a race between you and herself; instead she is breaking the law and risking her life to get as far away as possible from you. Do not drive faster and follow her, as it will only make her accelerate. If she ends up crashing into another car, flipping over, rolling into the other lane, getting hit by three more passing cars, and then finds herself stuck in a burning vehicle, trust me it will be worth it, because that means she has finally gotten away from you.

3. She begins to cry. These are not tears of joy; they are either tears of fear or disgust. At this point it is best to avoid her. Don't even attempt to apologize. Just drive off and the faster the better.

4. She begins dialing while staring at you menacingly; this usually happens after you have trailed her for a minimum of 45 minutes and she has finally entered her residential area. She is now either dialing her father’s number or her older brother, in both cases, you are in trouble. She is now praying that her sibling/parent will instill so much pain into your body that you cannot walk for a year; this is a sure sign that she is not looking for a serious relationship.

5. She presents her middle finger. This is not an act of love or a flirtatious signal; do not interpret it as one.

Now that you have a clear idea of when a girl is not into you, please keep an open eye for the signs and don’t waste your time on any girl that is presenting them. If you look close enough, maybe just maybe you will find that one girl who WILL give you a “thumbs up signal” in which you are welcome to follow her and park at either the “Ba6reek” parking lot or the back side of the “chilies parking lot” and provide her with one of your several phone numbers.

And remember gentlemen, you too deserve love. Just not from people who have a life.

mara killlish makan li khilg this is exactly what I did.
opened my window
"momkin ma til7agni ma3alaik amir"
wuhwa ga3id yi7awil yigool shay i cut him off and said,
"law sama7t momkin ma til7agni ma3alaik amir"
once again he tried to say something
i cut him off and said for the third time
"law sama7t sij"
to which he replied, completely embarrassed and shocked "haha, inshaaala, ana asif, bas sij mo3jab feech, ma3a il salama"

this literally took like what 30 seconds, problem solved.
