This is Beirut Comments - Wed, 2015-01-14 23:32

I love your posts. I’m actually getting ready to move to Lebanon form California this will be my second time going. I met a guy from there and I’ll be getting married and living there till I can bring him to the states. As an American girl have you been able to find a job. I’m Assyrian and I know there are a lot of Assyrians there but I speak zero Arabic. Any advise on job searches. I am a hairdresser I would love to find a salon that caters and speaks English. Anything I’ve found the hall speak Arabic. Would love your help. Thank you.

Comment on 10 things I’ve learned about dating in Lebanon by Neil

This is Beirut Comments - Mon, 2015-01-12 07:29

I really enjoyed the article as somebody with no Lebanese descent but a keen admirer of the people, it was very interesting and informative for me. I guess many from the country will dispute it and say it’s stereotypical but I always find that most are somewhat true, or have a sprinkle of truth anyway. Coming from Ireland I know all about the stereotype, we have it in every book and movie that is written about our country, the loud and drunk fool who loves a good laugh and a bad hangover! And to be honest it’s true to some extent. Now of course not everyone here drinks, some do as normal for social events etc and others each weekend with friends, and some as often as possible! What I mean is we all know at least one who is this way so I see it as correct in a way and not really insulting, although everyone is different, some get insulted over anything. On Lebanese women I must admit I am always interested in them. And I have not had much chance to really know any. I once did some work for a company and there was a Lebanese woman who worked with our team. She was strikingly beautiful, the type you would look at and then want to look back at again so soon. Just stunning. And really nice. Kind and friendly. Maybe my work suffered for my time I spent around her because my mind was fixed on this great woman. It’s at this time I was thinking more about this woman and her country. I admit I know nothing about Lebanon. Sometimes I hear the news to say our irish soldiers are gone there to peace keep and that is all. This woman soon left for London and my chance was gone! I found with her in our short time that I could not read her mind or even get a hint to how she was thinking, this for me was the hardest part. Maybe it’s why I never ask her for a date also, it’s harder when you have no idea if she will slap you or say yes yes yes! But she was friendly and left a mark with me, and it made me want to know more about this country that has this type of woman. Of course maybe all is not the same but if some have her character then it’s a good start! Now this is good to learn how some will act but how does a man who is 29 years old and lives in ireland, meet somebody from the Lebanon? Maybe this will be my greatest challenge. It’s not that I think every other country has bad women it’s just when something leaves a big impression on you, it’s hard to shake it off. It stays like a birth mark. I have to see more. Maybe then I know it was just my mind and not my heart. As for what they want in above article. I agree it’s natural to first look at somebody and say ” wow they are beautiful” without ever speaking a word to them. At that moment we don’t know if they have killed or robbed but we know they look good. We don’t know if they are kind and loyal. But they look good. There is more. But sadly in our world today you need to look good for most because if not then you will never have the chance to go to round 2 and they will not give you a chance to know if you are the most amazing person they can meet. We shut the door too fast without ever thinking that something maybe we should offer them inside and have some tea :) I try to take both equal. It’s true you need attraction but then comes the mind and the personality. You fall for someone really when you love there mind and heart not there face only. So sometimes give it a try and speak to people. You can be surprised. My grandmother used to tell me when I was a little boy that ” looks will not boil the pot”.. Even today this makes me smile, it’s so true. Having good looks is a gift but it does not cook a meal. It is good for not a lot really, not what matters. Anyway, good read. Goodnight :)

Comment on 10 things I’ve learned about dating in Lebanon by Carol Thomas1

This is Beirut Comments - Sat, 2015-01-10 13:54

I met my husband in my first year of senior high. Its not like i met met him during my first year of being senior , it was more like we started dating during that period in time. It was the first time in my life i felt like my heart was going to explode when anyone touched me or kissed me. I knew i was in love with him and there was no way of saying that i wasn’t and i also believed that he loved me just as much as i loved him. In more sense i could mistake what we felt as something magical. We planned our lives together thinking and knowing we are going to be together forever and nothing was ever going to tear us apart. But life being as it is, we woke up and reality set in. Although this month made it the 9th year since we have being together, last year was brought us series of problems. Professionally, i am a medical doctor and he is an art painter so there is no way on earth i will always be around because its the nature of my profession. I always made sure i spend most of my free time with him and not friends. As much as i love him, i also love saving lives so it was so selfish to ask me to choose. I will never ask him to choose between me and his art work because i knew how much he loved painting and how much he loved me also. O well that is all history just wanted you all know what caused our problem. I can go on and on telling how selfish he was towards me and my profession but it will be pointless. In the end i found out he was seeing someone else even if we were still married. I only knew about three months after they started their affair. And his reason for cheating was that he needs closure that i made sure i gave each time i was home with him. All that needing of closure speech could also be rephrased as he was tired of us and needed someone new after eight years of been together. I wish i told him he was never going to see me again but it was the opposite he ended us there and then. Call me crazy or whatever, i knew in my heart that if i had let him go like that i would never had found love again. A spell caster called Metodo Acamu help me cast a spell to bring us back together. I know it sounds hypocritical to even mention i used a spell to get back together with my husband because for goodness sake i am a medical doctor and i should know better than that but it true along with every other testimony about Metodo Acamu spell you have all seen on the Internet. Like most of the testimonies you may have read, i never intended on contact a spell caster but desperation drove me to am only glad i contacted the right one. He only asked me to provide four materials that i can not disclose which i was to mail to him through DHL or UPS but i decided to just send the total cost to him Because firstly my job does not permit me the time secondly some of the materials where not even found here in Chicago or the united state as a whole while other did not just go down with me to actually send via mail. But i promise you his spell worked. We are more in love than ever before just like when we first started dating and our relationship is more healthier that it ever was. Its been six months since Metodo Acamu help me get back together with my husband and like i said his month made it our 9th year of being together. I will his email contact here for mailing purpose { metodoacamufortressx[AT]yahoo{DOT}com } note:use this email the way you use yours in the stand email format
