    It's funny. That's also what got my attention. He was doing well but then he has his own Cinderella issue with "cheshmhaye rowshan."

    Well said.
    Its a huge oghde for some in Iran.
    Its the same crowd that think its an honor for their son or daughter to marry a non-Iranian (especially white).

    چند سال پیش که رفته بودم ایران یه شب در منزل یکی از اقوام فهمیدم که دخترشون ویزای مهاجرت به کانادا رو گرفته و برای گرفتن ویزا برای نامزدش چند تا سوال از من داشت. وسط صحبت با این دخترخانوم بودم که مادرش خیلی خندان و شیرین گفت "آقا سروش ترو خدا به این دختر من بگین چقدر کانادایی ها مردان خوبی ان. بهتره بره اونجا با یه کانادایی ازدواج کنه". من همینجوری مات و مبهوت مونده بودم چی بگم

    پرسیدم "مگه نامزدتون اون آقا نیست که اونروز باهاش اومده بودین رستوران؟". مادرش پرید وسط حرف گفت "بله همونه. پسر خوبیه ولی دخترم عاشق فرهنگ کانادایی هاست. خب چرا باهاشون ازدواج نکنه؟

    دختره هم عین گوسفند نشسته بود هیچی نمیگفت. منم که ... بگذریم

    یعنی من تو کف مونده بودم اون پسره ی بدبخت که مثلا نامزد این بود داشت چه بلایی به سر خودش و آینده ش میاورد. خیلی دلم براش سوخت . اصلا هم خبر ندارم بالاخره چی شد. خدا رحمتش کنه

    Unlikely. This kind of donkey thought is not uncommon in Iran. I've heard the same from Iranians in and out of Iran.

    No joke at all. It's more common than you think. It's the same as any westerner you find uninformed about Iran. Some people are really fucking stupid and ignorant.

    I'm sure you find such ignorance all over the world, but because of our vantage point having lived abroad, it makes it that much more painful for us.

    I mean, what the fuck are people doing with their lives letting day after day pass without gaining an ounce of general knowledge about the fucking world they're living in? How many more times are they willing to discuss the price of onions and tomatoes before developing enough curiosity about the country their own daughter is migrating to?!

    What do you expect from a country that their major papers have been discussing "ترور بیولوژیکی" مریم میرزاخانی

    I do remember some 12-15 years ago, I was talking to a friend of my brother in Iran and he was telling me how he's still indecisive about getting married with an Iranian girl or go to Europe and marry a European one. He was asking me for advice and wanted me to tell him whether the culture of the western girls would match him or not! lol As if, if he went to Europe, the girls would stand in line for him to pick one.

    But then again....what do you really expect from a country that has been closed to the world for so long. It's only around a decade people have been having internet and only a few years with a half a$$ speed.

    Your advice to him was not to marry, right?

    LOL...I just tried to be as honest as possible but at the same time respectful. Tried to explain the differences. Couldn't stop from laughing for myself though.

    His main argument for marrying a western girl was that he had heard the western girls didn't have any demands and also he could skip the "mehriyeh"! lol
