The Most Important Traits of Lebanese Men
Because of their origin, Lebanese men are extremely hot.
You won’t be able to take your eyes off them and there is something mysterious about their looks and appearance.
This mystical aura is something that you will be instantly attracted to and desire to know more about them will keep you by their side!
One thing I noticed is that most Lebanese males look just as I describe them and there isn’t much difference between them.
Lucky for you, finding that perfect guy won’t be difficult and hot Lebanese guys can be found all over Lebanon.
To get a date with one of them and steal their hearts, firstly you should know what are Lebanese guys like.
Physical appearance – 10/10
I mean their beauty is undeniable.
I don’t care what your type is, everyone finds them handsome.
When a Lebanese guy walks by you, you have to check him out – from head to toes.
Handsome Lebanese guys are flawless and because of that, they deserve a score of 10 out of 10!
If I had to compare them to other nations, I would say that they are similar to Greek only even more handsome! Taller, darker and even more stunning.
Here are a few traits of sexy Lebanese guys: unquestionable beauty, dreamy eyes, dark hair and perfect tan.
Did I mention their stunning looks?
All of their men aren’t extremely tall – their average height is about 176 centimeters. However, their body is well-looking no matter the height.
Lebanese men put a lot of work and effort to maintain their physical appearance.
This means going to the gym and working out daily.
Lebanese guys have six-packs, love to show them off and they are quite an eye candy.
Because of their culture and origin, typical Lebanese guys have long beards. Still, they make sure their beards are well maintained, regularly groomed and each month they visit their hairstylist to cut their dark and thick hair.
Once you go on the date with the Lebanese guy, all of their muscular traits won’t be the only attractive thing.
Many guys have deep brown eyes that add to their mystic aura. Only a small number has the most unique, deep blue eyes that are truly captivating.
It’s like you are staring at a deep-sea and those eyes with a bright and wide smile will make any girl instantly fall in love.
Lebanese guys are well aware of their looks and how it influences the women. So expect to be completely swept away on the first date.
Also, Lebanon is a state located on the Mediterranean Sea. Lebanese spend an entire lifetime on the beach, swimming and sunbathing.
All Lebanese guys have the most amazing tan and that tan combined with blue eyes, dark eyes, stylish beard and hair are a perfect combination.
If you stumble upon a guy that looks nothing like described, he most likely a tourist that is exploring this amazing state.
Lebanese guys know how to dress.
Their style nicely complements their stunning looks.
Also, they like everything to be over-the-top and often brag about what they own and what they wear.
Your Lebanese boyfriend will most likely have a bigger closet than you do and own more pairs of shoes.
Because they love fashion, they won’t mind going shopping with you – he will be the best shopping companion.
Most Lebanese guys love to rock necklaces. Well, with those big and strong chests, the necklace is amazing detail.
Their necklaces are usually gold or silver with a simple design. Sometimes they wear them under the clothing, but if they have more than one necklace on, then they have to show each piece of jewelry.
When it comes to their wardrobe, it is all about the brands.
Even if the piece isn’t as nice, if there is a stamp of the brand on it, they will wear it.
LV glasses, Gucci belts, Dolce and Gabbana bags are their must-haves.
To some women, all of this branding can sound quite untasteful. However, these guys know how to pull it off.
They love suits and know how to dress for important events. Also, they will dress appropriately even for going to the supermarket.
The only time you will them in hoodies and tracksuits is at the gym. Even then they look stunning and those sweatpants look tailor-made only for them.
Additional Rating – The Tinder 1000 Swipe Rating

Character Traits of Lebanese Men
Of course, no matter how attractive they are, what are Lebanese guys like in relationships is far more important.
If he is a douche, his stunning looks won’t help him much and there won’t be a second date.
Lucky for you, Lebanese guys are polite, out-going and have a respect for women. If you do somehow cross paths with an impolite guy, he is probably the only exception.
A well behaved, handsome Lebanese guy is out there, waiting for you!
1. Gentleman rating – 10/10
These guys are amazing! They act like true gentlemen!
This can be applied to their behavior in public and Lebanese guys in bed are just the same!
He will hold the door open for you, bring you flowers on the first date and make sure to give you many compliments throughout the evening.
Don’t even think about reaching for the check! They feel like they have to pay the bill when you go out.
Of course, after a few dates, they will allow you to split the check or pay it in total, but at the beginning of the relationship, by paying the bill they are showing you respect.
Even though they are traditional, they don’t treat women like they are beneath them.
In Lebanon they don’t speak too much about gender equality and women do stay at home, but Lebanese men have found ways to show their appreciation for everything that women do.
Also, they love to surprise their girlfriends and wives.
I remember that my room in Lebanon was filled with flowers that came unexpectedly from my Lebanese dates. Those flowers usually meant that they had a good time and look forward to another date.
Your Lebanese boyfriend will constantly throw you similar surprises – they love small ways of showing affection!
2. Integrity – 9/10
Lebanese guys know what they bring to the table.
They are well aware of their looks and how thoughtful they act.
Family, friends and their origin are important to all of them and they make sure that their traditions are nurtured.
Lebanon is a country with warm-hearted people who can’t wait to shower you with their love.
3. Honesty – 8/10
They do respect women. Out of that respect, they are usually honest to women.
I do have to usually because they aren’t so communicative when you meet them. They can make small talk but remain secretive.
Because of that, you will want to know more and find that mysteries are they keep from you.
I wouldn’t say that they are lying to you but they aren’t straight-forward telling you the truth.
For them to open up completely, they first have to get to know you. Once they feel like they can trust you, a Lebanese guy won’t keep any secrets from you.
4. Loyalty – 10/10
You should never question their loyalty!
Whoever they welcome in their life – whether it is a friend or a partner, they act loyal.
Everything they need, especially when it comes to sex, they want to get from their partner and no one else. This is because of their respect for women.
Lebanese men in bed want to be pleased and when you accomplish that he will be yours!
Also, their loyalty is related to their values and I will tell you more about all of that later.
5. How protective are they? – 9/10
They don’t have the muscles for just showing off.
If they have to use them to protect you from someone, they will unquestionably.
Even if it is your first date, they are making sure you feel secure at all times.
Also, sometimes, they do take it too far.
If your Lebanese boyfriend is jealous, he will sometimes try to control you. There won’t be any forbidding, but he will want to where you are and who are you hanging out with.
Because of that, their protectiveness is sometimes smothering.
6. Are they resourceful? – 9/10
Lebanese guys are resourceful in every way!
They are successful and full of knowledge. You can discuss with them on numerous topics and they love debating.
Also, most of them have a stable income and love to share their wealth. They won’t even mind being the only person in the relationship that gets a regular paycheck!
When it comes to housework, they can be quite helpful.
Lebanese men aren’t natural cooks and don’t expect fancy homemade dinners. However, they can cook a pretty decent meal and have enough skills to know how to survive.
Also, they won’t live in dirt and if they live alone, they will do the housework. Once you are in the picture, you will be expected to keep the house clean.
7. Maturity – 10/10
Lebanese men are taught from a young age the importance of hard work and providing for themselves.
Most of them start working the minute they are legally allowed to and act mature from a young age.
There is no joking around, looking for shortcuts or dad’s sons.
They take their work seriously and their relationships even more.
Since they are looking for a stable relationship, they don’t have a problem with speaking about the things that bother them and make great listeners!
8. Self-confidence – 9/10
Lebanese guys are confident but not over the top and that makes them even more attractive!
Because of their regular workouts and amazing style, they know they look good.
All of them wear the biggest smiles on their faces and confidence is the best description of any typical Lebanese men.
The only thing that makes them unsure about their looks is their height. Women that are taller than them can forget about dating a Lebanese guy. If you are just their height, only make sure to never wear high-heels around them.
9. Are they friendly or reserved?
They are somehow both, depending on the situation.
When it comes to group outings, they will easily engage in conversation, laugh and joke. They can be the most communicative persons!
However, when it comes to dating Lebanese guys, they can be reserved at the beginning. They make sure that they ask you questions, participate in a conversation, but not reveal too much about themselves.
They act mysterious and they will have to get to know you better before they start sharing their thoughts.
No matter how reserved they might seem, single Lebanese men are still polite and know how to grab your attention.
As long as you are polite, they will positively respond when you approach them!
These Lebanese men are certainly highly confident and protective when it comes to their women.
Another factor that makes them rank so high is their looks and height – combined, these dudes look terrific on all account.
They are not angels though. So, read on to see the drawbacks of dating Lebanese men.
Pros and Cons of Dating Lebanese Men
When it comes to international dating, you are always walking into an unknown.
The mentality of every nation is different and you can easily find pros and cons for every situation.
If you were wondering what are benefits of dating Lebanese men, here is a list of all of them. Of course, I don’t plan to sugar coat their dating culture so you can learn more about the disadvantages as well.
1. You will be living in the sea
I love warm weather and if I could, I would spend all day on the beach.
If you are lucky enough to get a Lebanese boyfriend, you will live at the shore of one of the most beautiful seas – Mediterranean Sea.
You can spend all of your free time sunbathing, swimming and do all those things will your incredibly hot boyfriend.
Many people spent an enormous amount of money to travel to these areas in the summertime, while you will get a chance to live at the beach and enjoy it during the entire year.
2. Dating a stylish guy
Let’s be honest for a moment!
Guys look like they’ve picked out their outfit blind. Pairing pants and shirt is difficult for most of them and combining an entire outfit with the shoes is almost a mission impossible.
One of the most common Lebanese men stereotypes is that they are completely tasteless just like other guys.
In reality, they are the complete opposite and care about their style!
It isn’t just about rocking different brands, but wearing them so they match.
They are always suitably dressed on a daily bases, for work and special occasions.
3. They respect women
They are taught that women play major roles in their lives.
Even if you are a stay-at-home mom, they consider your role quite important.
They even think women who take care of home and family are more valuable than those who work.
Because of that, they are protective of their mothers, sisters, aunts, wife and other important females in their life.
You can expect to be treated like a princess and your Lebanese boyfriend will find numerous ways to show his appreciation. Dating a Lebanese man can be quite pleasurable!
1. They can smother you
At first, every Lebanese guy will seem laid back.
When you meet Lebanese men, they act casual, ask you a lot of questions and show their humorous side.
Because they love to be mysterious, you will be immediately attracted to them and be dying to find out their secrets.
Once they get comfortable with you, they change how they act.
Of course, he will still deeply care about you and show his affection. However, he will also try to tame you in some way.
Every time you leave the house, expect a phone call. If he doesn’t like the company you are in, he will most likely ask you to miss that one outing.
All of those phone calls and boundaries he tries to put can be exhausting. At the end of the day you might feel suffocated or like he doesn’t trust you and both are quite unattractive.
2. Say goodbye to your career
Not all Lebanese men are so traditional, but most of them are.
If you plan on tying the knot with a Lebanese guy, you can throw away all of the career plans.
He will want you to take care of the house, do only the housework and look after your many cute children.
A part-time job is something he might be okay with, but a woman who is perusing her career will most likely be unappealing to him.
Before starting the relationship, make sure that your family and future goals are the same!
3. Language barrier
In Lebanon the official language is Arabic.
It might sound interesting but learning Arabic is difficult.
Their letters are unique and there are different rules for writing, which makes everything even more complex.
If you speak English or French, Lebanese will be able to understand you. However, these two languages are also the only two foreign languages used.
German is not so common and you might stumble upon a few guys that know the basics.
Where to Meet Lebanese Men
International dating can be done both online and face-to-face.
The second is always better and the relationship will have better chances of lasting if you meet Lebanese guys in person.
Lebanese cities, especially the bigger ones have a fun nightlife. So, how to meet a Lebanese guy in a club?
Most of the guys will make the first move. They might send you a drink before approaching you to test the field, but many will politely introduce themselves.
None of them are inappropriate and they are good at feeling the room. If they see that their presence is making you uncomfortable, they will take a step back.
Also, if you stop a guy you like, you can approach him first. Single Lebanese guys are easy to spot in the crowd and they will react positively when you introduce yourself.
Out of all tips for dating a Lebanese man, the most important is this one – whatever you do, do not buy them a drink! They might feel offended if you pay for their drink.
The best way to start a conversation is to simply introduce yourself and start a small talk. If you don’t feel like talking too much, drag him to the dance floor.
American women looking for Lebanese men can find them on numerous dating websites and apps! All of the Lebanese guy dating tips can be applied to online dating.
Some of the most popular dating websites are lovehabibi.com, dating.com, arablounge.com but the one with most Lebanese users is meet-lebanese.com
The site is available worldwide and it is connecting Lebanese people with people from all over the world.

The profile is consisted out of the basic information – name, age, country, gender, your hobbies, interests and what are you looking for.
Also, you will be asked to upload a picture of yourself so find the one that will catch an eye on the handsome Lebanese man.

How to conquer a Lebanese man’s heart
Now that you know where to meet Lebanese guys, you should know how to steal his heart.
Lebanese guy isn’t so different than any other typical guy, but there are a few tricks to make him yours!
1. Cook for him
Any guy will like a girl that can make his favorite meals!
This is especially important for Lebanese men.
If you are inviting him over, prepare one of the traditional Lebanese dishes – hummus is a great appetizer, serve Ful Meddamas after and finish the diner with baklava.
After tasting these amazing dishes, he will immediately fall in love with you!
2. Stay stylish
Because Lebanese men are quite stylish, they want their women to dress the same.
This doesn’t mean showing too much skin.
You can completely cover your body as long as it looks modern.
They also pay attention to the details. Wearing bracelets, necklaces and rings is always a plus. If your wardrobe has many small details or interesting patterns, they will pay attention to your clothing!
Slobs are not their type, so you can throw away your sweatpants and hoodies when you start dating.
3. Allow him to be a gentleman
I already mentioned this a few times, but I find it important and have to repeat it!
Acting like a gentleman is something they are taught from a young age and this is how they show respect. If you reach for the check, he might feel less manly.
He wants you to know that he can provide for both and that he is appreciating your role in the relationship.
Of course, after some time, you can offer to pay the check or at least split it.
4. Play hard-to-get
When I say play hard-to-get, I don’t mean act uninterested.
If he thinks he is boring, he will pull away.
You should go on the date, ask him a question, laugh at his jokes and show interest. However, in the end, you don’t have to finish the date with the kiss.
They will love that you are taking it a bit slower and be even more romantic the next time you see them.
Also, they are mysterious and you are allowed to be a bit mysterious as well!
5. Don’t be noisy
If the guy is avoiding to answer the question, don’t pressure him.
Lebanese guys are outgoing, while still being secretive.
If you want to know something, you should ask, but don’t get offended if the doesn’t give you an answer.
When a Lebanese guy feels attacked by your questions, he starts pulling away.
Once he gets to know you better, he will start opening up.
So be patient and over the time you will get all of the responses!
