Dos and Don’ts of Dating Israeli Men
A Single's Guide to Dating in Tel Aviv
The book, which includes ads placed by men and women looking for a match, was written by Yosef Lieber, the owner of matchmaking service that he established in on Brenner Street in Tel Aviv. The Israel National Library catalog reveals that Lieber published at least one other matchmaking book, in Up to 38, seeking a nurse from a famous medical institution, educated, with steady employment and with 50 pounds. A wonder of a year-old guy, native born only someone born in the country is capable of this! Lieber would publish his matchmaking ads in a number of newspapers — Maariv, Hatzofeh, Iton Meyuhad and Hamashkif. Good connections among all intellectual circles from all [ethnic] communities. Business hours from 10 in the morning to 10 at night.
Forget Speed Dating, Just Meet To Marry
Tel Aviv is a very vibrant, liberal and sexy city. It is completely normal for a woman to just hand over her number out of the blue, or for a man to join a conversation between two girls to ask if you want to go for coffee. Keep in mind, they will also find it very easy to break up with you the moment they feel like it, without much explaining or preparing. It is absolutely okay to go out on a date with a pair of jeans and sneakers and for a girl to not put heavy make up on.
Living abroad in another country is hard, especially when you have to adjust to cultural differences. One of the major differences I found between life in Israel verses that in America is the dating culture. Certain dating norms that are acceptable in America cannot be applied to the dating scene in Israel. If you ever find yourself in Israel, whether for a short vacation or a long-term stay, consult this list before you hit the daring scene of dating Israeli men. Many Israelis believe in spontaneity, and rarely choose to make plans far into the future.
