In a time when Syria is associated mostly with conflict, I’d like to take the opportunity to tell about something that I like with this country: my girlfriends. Now I’m not usually prone to generalizations, but I have found that my Syrian friends have quite a few characteristics in common, so why not share them? (And hey, who is a woman without her girlfriends anyways?)
Girls, I love you cause you are…
- Openminded and curious
- Trustworthy, if you say you will pick me up at 7 you’re at my door 7 sharp, no flaking out
- Stylish and cool, always dressed up, willing to lend out your clothes or braid my hair
- Complimenting on my looks in a way that makes me feel good. No “Did you gain weight?”-rudeness here
- Fun-loving in a carefree way, when going out with you anything can happen
Ladies, this one’s for you! Keep staying cool no matter where your country is heading.
