Lebanese women are famous for their good looks. They usually have that sexy, dark, sensual look with a small waist and big breasts, and their skin is lighter compared to those in other Middle East countries.
I heard all sorts of myths and legends about how beautiful the Lebanese girls are, and so I expected Beirut to be the capital of models. What I saw is that the standard is pretty good. Even though the pear-shaped body was common, you will very rarely find fatties or ugly women, but you will also have to put in some effort to find that perfect ten you seek. There is not much of a range of quality, but overall, Lebanese women are the best-looking females in the Arabic world, period.
Liberal or conservative
Lebanon is probably the least conservative country in this region. Many drink and smoke, and I never saw a country with more short skirts in my life. Women here love to dress slutty, but are they really sluts?
Unfortunately, to our western standards, they are not as liberal. Though they make out pretty quickly, one-night-stands are rare, so there are much better places to go if your only goal is to get laid.
From my experience, you should target MILFs and young ones (18-23), because those are the majority of one-night-stands you will get. Lebanese women in their mid-twenties tend to put up more of an act. Of course, I am talking about girls in Beirut; I’m sure you will find a different, more conservative culture if you go to the peripheries, just like in the case of Albanian women.
She will let you know if she really likes you
Lebanese women love to play no verbal games. If you are good with this, Lebanon is your country. Girls will often try to see “who will look away first” when it comes to eye contact. Just like Russian women, they will also give you many indicators of interests (IOI’s) like eye contact and a smile. That is indeed a plus if you are good-looking. So, open your eyes to this stuff but please do me a favor and do not let this be your excuse not to approach girls that didn’t look at you first.
Dating a Lebanese woman as a foreigner is fun and you will definitely have some extra value as a foreigner. People will be friendlier to you just because of that. The Lebanese society is quite materialistic, but don’t think that you can get laid only because you have money.
No matter how weird this sound, girls in Lebanon love to friend zone foreigners. They want “to show you off,” since Beirut is not such a big city and people know each other. Don’t be just another friend; show some masculinity and don’t be afraid to be sexual and direct, or to ask for what you want. Being direct is no taboo here.
As far as the English language goes, most of the people speak English and even French, so not knowing Arabic is not a big deal.
Women aren’t used to be approached during a day, but they will respond nicely. I don’t remember getting a cold rejection here on the street. They will be surprised but also interested in you because you showed enough courage and speak English.
The malls are excellent for approaching Lebanese women. However, do not forget to try some street game around the classy shops near Nijimeh square, Foch Street, harissa church, the Jounieh area, and good old Starbucks.
Lebanese women are friendly
Lebanese women are a bit friendlier then women in other countries I have been to. They will chit chat you at first and slowly move the direction of the conversation. Before you know it, you are in comfort zone and you’re just another foreign friend.
Avoid this by being direct and physical from the start. Let her know what is this all about, let her talk a bit if she needs it to relax, but don’t let her do all the talking.
Don’t judge a book by its cover
Don’t expect that a girl who is dressed slutty to be a slut. Sometimes it’s easier to get a number from a Muslim girl than from a virgin Christian girl that is dressed provocatively.
Isolate her from her friends
As I said, Beirut is not a big city (a population of a little over a million), so people know each other. Which means that if a girl sleeps with you on the first night, the chances are someone she knows would see she went with you in a taxi. This is something you have to consider, Lebanese dating culture is liberal compared to Saudi Arabia, but it’s still conservative from our point of view and girls are afraid of being labeled as sluts.
It is your job to keep everything you do secret and not to put her in the spotlight. Make sure you isolate her for whatever reason you can think of (“come, I want you to meet someone,” “let’s get some drinks,” etc.) because you will have a hard time taking her home if her friends are watching. Try to find your perfect place in a club where you can have at least some privacy and bring her there.
Everyone that has been to Beirut can agree with me that Beirut is the Las Vegas of the Middle East. Their nightlife is enjoyable, extraordinary, and full of tourists. However, sometimes you will feel like you are in a competition, where everyone wants to show off their new iPhones, cars, or just how much money he or she has.
The best periods to visit Beirut is in June/July/August; July and August are the best. Firstly, during those months they get more tourists than almost the entire population of the country. You will find many tourists from Saudi Arabia, Iran, Turkey, Europe, Latin America, USA, Russia, etc. Moreover, the second reason is an excellent weather.
In some fancy nightclubs, they will not let you inside alone unless you bring some friend or a girl with you. There aren’t many dancefloors, but you can enter everywhere. In general, Lebanese people go out a lot; you will see a bunch of 18-year-olds do bottle service regularly, and not just the rich ones. There are all classes around the same club.
It’s kind of hard to recommend specific places for specific types as everyone seems to go everywhere, it’s not that segregated.
White (summer club): Well-known rooftop nightclub, good vibe where you can approach many women and have a good time. One can, however, be tempted to think mainly loose girls usually hang out there. Most of the times you need a reservation or someone to go with you, don’t be alone. You could try to go alone, but often enough they don’t let the lone wolf in there.
Music hall: So many tables and tiny bars but the atmosphere is excellent and fun. If you have a group to go out with, this place is a must. Everyone knows that this place is crazy for fun.
Iris rooftop is more of a place to chill at 6 pm and watch the sunset. There are usually many girls there but expect somewhat relaxed laidback atmosphere.
B018 is a former bomb bunker located in the middle of a circular parking lot, and it has a certain underground vibe to it that I like. You will find a lot of drunken girls here. Moreover, don’t be afraid to be direct here, music is loud, so you need to be physical. From what I saw, girls look very open to adventures here.
Hamra Street: ideal for a day game, you will find many women in short skirts and maybe even some Lebanese models. It’s crowded in the summer, and there is a corner called alleyway that has most of the known pubs.
Mar Mikhail: This residential and commercial neighborhood is getting increasingly popular and will replace Hamra in no time; there are a lot of hot girls here and many pubs to drink. It’s paradise. Basically, you sit in a bar and have beautiful Lebanese girls walking by, almost inviting you to approach them.
Lebanese men are super friendly, almost to a fault. If they see you approach a girl, they will cheer you up with a smile. They are not territorial at all, and they will be more than happy to show you around the city.
Therefore, the good news is that you can approach a lot of the Lebanese girls and not think someone is going to smash your face just because you are a foreigner.
So what’s the bad news then? Well, if they know the girl they will cockblock you but not in an aggressive way, they will just sort of dilute your efforts, and before you know it, you are in a group of 8 people, and it’s a big party group. They will just lure you into their group, and because of social pressure a girl feels, she will not sleep with you.
This is why mastering the isolation game is so important in Lebanon. If you can do this right, you should befriend a Lebanese guy and then when he introduces you to the chicks in the group, just isolate her and escalate. This is easier said than done, of course.
The Tinder game in Lebanon is hard. Everyone has a picture of their brand new car bragging how much money they have and how he or she traveled the world. Lebanese women on Tinder rarely even reply if you are not of very high value. Instead, I would suggest you use Badoo since it is very popular “underground dating” app in Lebanon.
It works like similar to Tinder but the girls are much more open to hooking up. You won’t be disappointed.
As I said, you will find all kinds of people here in Beirut – rich Arab ladies, European women, Turkish women, Americans, etc., but the ones that are the most interesting are Syrian women. Why? Because Syrian girls that are refugees from Syria actually have money, and don’t act like refugees, but like they are on a short vacation. No one knows them in Beirut, so they do not actually feel that social pressure like Lebanese girls. This means that they are more open to one-night-stands. If you find attractive Syrian women (and there are a lot of them), feel free to approach them, since your chances will be somewhat better.
Elite prostitution is something everyone knows about, but no one talks about it. It is an open secret that surprisingly, a few talented actresses were either involved or still are. And not just actresses but also singers; and, of course, Instagram models.
Unfortunately, more and more college girls are recruited into this ugly business. People in the entertainment industry lure them in, and in no time, they all have new clothes, expensive watches, and have trips to Dubai almost every month.
How to spot them? Well, it’s a closed circle of people at the top who operate all these, and so it’s difficult for you to get them if it’s your first time in Beirut. However, if a girl has a lot of Dubai trip pics on her Instagram and she is going there every month, chances are higher that she is working.
Beirut is a safe city. Don’t let heavy police and military presence in the city fool you. I have never heard any incident of some foreigner getting beaten or robbed here. You also don’t have to worry about breaking some Islamic law since Lebanon law is not based on sharia like in Saudi Arabia. Nightclubs are also a pretty safe place to approach girls; never seen a problem with that. Just act normal and be respectful, and you are fine.
However, regarding politics, the country is not so stable. The tension with Israel is still high, and Saudi Arabia and the US want to punish Lebanon for its ties with Iran. Only a few months ago, there were clashes on Lebanon’s border with Syria, but now, I heard it’s safe.
This country is safe and free, and let’s hope it stays this way.
Pro tip: The real dangers you will face are in taxis. They will want to rip you off if they notice you are a foreigner. I learned from some hot Turkish girl that you could use “service,” which means Taxis that take 4-5 people per trip to your destination for $2-$4 USD. To use their services, there are three options: servees (a shared taxi from the street), a private street taxi, or the service of an official taxi company, and there is also Uber.
Lebanese women are more westernized than their American counterparts when it comes to fashion. Everyone pays attention to who is wearing what since most people know each other. However, girls wear very short skirts even when it is cold. The exceptions are, of course, religious Muslim women.
I had a great time here in Beirut. It’s a really great city that has a lot to offer. Nightlife is something every tourist remember, and I know I will. Lebanese women are hot and open to approach, but it will take some effort to get them in bed. I truly recommend everyone to visit this place. The energy of Beirut is something that will make you feel alive, it’s simply amazing.
