He's American, completely "westernized" and lives in New Jersey. I am NOT interested in dating a Mama's Boy and sometimes people from Asian cultures are much more subservient to their parents. Also, do they tend to favor strong women or are they looking for someone more "traditional".It's already a huge feet that he has taken by even asking you out because Pakistanis are pressured to "date" and marry Pakistani Muslims. they are very religous though but im not sure if they are racist. I met him because we go to the same mosque because I am in the process of converting from christianity to Islam. Thats why in Bollywood they have alot of white people and the dark indians in the background dancing..if they would just see that white people would spit on them if they had the chance...
For example, dating is forbidden in Islam, most men's mothers have the final say in who they end up with and, in fact, want their sons to end up with someone from the same culture or an arranged marriage.
I'm aware many men from the middle East only use white girls, but then dump them for women of their own culture when it's time to marry.
Are you they or progressive, have you made sure he isn't just trying to get with you just to another a notch to his belt. they are very religous though but im not sure if they are racist.
Muslim people I know arent racist because they werent raise to judge by color...

He lives with his parents, which is a turn-off to me for someone in their mid-20s (I am very independent and like my men to be too! Obviously this guy knows I have a job and my own apartment but I didn't know if that's something that's a pro or a con for him. FWIW, a friend of mine is married to someone of Pakistani descent.
If his living with his parents is a turn-off, there's your answer. I believe his parents were the first immigrants here in his family. He's an American, just like anyone else born here, but my friend jokes, "Once you go Paki, you never go backy." If you're a true, "red-blooded American woman, born and raised American.." All I can say is good luck and don't say we didn't tell you so.
He has US citizenship and is a successful engineer, he has never been married nor does he have kids.
He isn't too religious and admits that if he was, dating isn't allowed, but he prays and observes Ramadan, doesn't drink, eat pork etc.
I'm aware men are allowed to become polygamous.
He agreed and said much of what I said is true, but that I can't stereotype everybody and to please give him a chance since he doesn't fit into any of the stereotypes and assured me all along of how seriously he's taking me.
It's not something that happens very often, but you should go for it but be extremely careful. I met him because we go to the same mosque because I am in the process of converting from christianity to Islam.
