American men will rush to get you in bed as quick as possible, while European men don’t appear to have the same rush (or desperation). European men don’t ‘date’ – in the formal way that Americans are used to.
The types of dates seen in movies – the formal ask, the fancy dinner and the entire dance that ensues simply doesn’t exist in the European mindset, in fact, the word “dating” isn’t even a part of their lexicon. Unlike American culture, where there’s almost a rite of passage which takes two people from “hooking up” to “seeing each other” to “dating” to “exclusive”, these labels just aren’t a focus or concern for European men. Rather, the mentality is, “I like you, I want to see you, and if it’s enjoyable, let’s keep seeing each other”.

What was more shocking to me was that his parents were completely fine with it.

The below is a list of some of the themes and commonalities observed.
Today, real power in Iraq lies outside national governing institutions.
It is primarily civil society and paramilitary groups who are struggling for control over the state.
Even Arab governments in non-oil producing countries became heavily dependent on aid and capital from oil-producing countries including the remittances sent home by their citizens living there to compensate for their limited ability to provide social services to their own populations.
This resulted in a system of regional rentierism, whereby most Arab countries became somehow tied to the network of wealth generated by the oil-producing economies.
Through her various projects Aschenbrand has developed a reputation as a writer and a designer who's not afraid to "go there," whether that means antagonizing Republicans (she once protested in her underwear outside the Republican National Convention and PAPER named her a 'Radical Woman' back in 2005) or candidly discussing her genital grooming habits in her newest memoir, On My Knees.
Out this week via Harper Collins, On My Knees centers on Aschenbrand's post-break-up malaise, in which she holes up (or, rather, squats) in her late-grandmother's apartment following the end of a 10-year relationship.
Forty-four percent of the Arabs surveyed named corruption as one of the top two threats to their respective countries.
