Clothes that are unremarkable at home can come across in Jordan as being embarrassing, disrespectful or offensive.Jordanians and Palestinians place a much greater emphasis on personal grooming and style of dress than people tend to in the West: for most, consciously “dressing down” in torn or scruffy clothes is unthinkable. I seem to get this one a lot, usually during the early stages of conversation. Well, honey, first of all you’re probably fishing in the wrong pond if these are the type of guys you manage to end up with, and, as far as perversion goes, the whole world is perverted in one way or another.
If you’re not planning on having sex with a guy, don’t play the game. Don’t pretend to be a player when you’re just a spectator.

I am so glad I found this web site while searching and turning internet upside down in hope to find some answers about the situation I found myself in.
So if you’re looking for one-night-stands, you’re out of luck. We (probably) know more about your culture than you know about ours.
I’d suggest forgetting about the local girl and try hooking up with another female expat. So if you’re aiming to date a local Ammanite girl, set all of your previous dating expectations aside, go with the flow and enjoy the ride.
