The ways boys/girls in open-minded families start dating and meeting each other is more or less similar to here, US.They meet each other in parties, friends’ groups, universities, etc.The horror of having to wait one month to find out if he’s into you…In Bangladesh it's also frowned upon to date.
I am Japanese and I am usually not offended by stereotypes but very disappointed that All Women Stalk has this article up...
😢I live in South korea and hav lived here for more than twenty yrs.
Having this attitude in mind, a probable question coming to mind is that so how boys and girls in religions families meet each other for the first time while they should not have any relationships before marriage?
To answer this question I should explain a custom which we called ‘Khastegari’.
) it would be interesting for the students as well as my teacher with dissimilar background to know that how Iranians start dating, falling in love, and getting married. The way people start dating in Iran is highly dependent on the family they were born.
Generally, we have two extreme categories for Iranian families.
‘Khastegari’ is a custom in which families of both girl and boy come to meet each other for the first time with or without knowing each other before and this time could be the first time the the boy and the girl meet each other.
In this meeting, families as well as the boy and the girl talk to each for about 4-5 hours to get to know each other.
I have to admit that some woman does ask her boyfriend to carry their purse, but its not that common if a girl respects her boyfriend...
I live in Japan and I just feel I need to say that the information about Japanese dating customs are not correct, they're just as the other people said, old stereotypes.
Also, another custom that families talk about in ‘khastegari’ called as ‘Mehrieh’. After this meeting, if the families especially the boy and girl want to know each other more, a period starts we called ‘Namzadi’.
