At one time divided into two countries, East and West, and separated by the bulk of northern India, Pakistan today consists of a wide swathe of land running from the Arabian Sea in the south to Kashmir and the Himalayas in the north, basically the same area occupied by West Pakistan, created in 1947 when India gained independence from Great Britain. The country is bordered to the southwest by Iran, and Afghanistan further north, while India borders the eastern side of Pakistan. The capital, Islamabad, is situated in the north of the country, close to the border of the north Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. The population of roughly 135 million is 5% short of being completely Muslim, with only a handful of minority religions including Hindi, Buddhist and Christian. Featuring mountains in the north, beaches in the south, deserts and the mighty Indus River, Pakistan is widely diversified geographically and most of its inhabitants live in rural areas, an estimated 30% living in towns and cities. While the country’s official language is Urdu, most Pakistanis are fluent in English, therefore communication should not be of concern.
What is the typical stereotype of the Pakistani male?
As with most nationalities within the Asian region, the inhabitants of Pakistan are friendly and very polite. Your Pakistani partner will generate warmth and happiness, and will be eager to introduce you to his family and friends. As in most developed countries, the Pakistani lifestyle revolves around high-income, middle-income, and low-income sectors of the population.
Why are Pakistani men so attractive to western women?
Good question. Basically, it’s because of their attitude to life, which is generous, happy and free, and laced with an overwhelming aura of positiveness. Pakistani men are usually pretty handsome (read gorgeous), and, with their smooth dark skin, wide eyes and sensuous smile, they’re dangerously alluring to females from many nations. While they may follow the Muslim code fairly rigidly in their own country, they may pay a little less attention to detail if they relocate to a western location.
Status of Women and Men, and gender roles within Pakistan
Traditionally, Pakistanis believed in different roles for different genders. Social roles, in terms of hierarchical relationships, were defined by strict religious laws. Nowadays, though, with both genders having the right to vote, there is equality between males and females, and men and women in Pakistan enjoy a high level of education and an equal footing in the job market. When it comes to the family, men are deemed to be head of the household and in control, while their women are responsible for its general day-to-day running. Far from being domineering, your proud partner will happily fit into an equally balanced relationship.

Stuff to think about when dating your Pakistani soulmate
Be respectful. As with all Asians, Pakistanis are very polite and expect politeness in return. It is very seldom that Asians are rude to other people, and this fact should be kept in mind at all times.
Don’t be in a hurry, don’t rush into things. While open and friendly, Pakistanis are serious about their relationships, so play the game and enjoy the moment. Be patient and be serious about building respectful connections which will lead to a beautiful romance.
Two things to understand about food. Firstly, 95% of Pakistanis don’t eat pork, this is on account of their religious beliefs and customs. Secondly, fasting is a daily occupation during Ramadan. Because of these traditions, respect again comes into the equation when meeting and dating people from a culture other than your own.
A Pakistani marriage is the ultimate union between a man and a woman, and also forms a strong bond between the two families. There are several marriage ceremonies, depending on the province where the wedding takes place, but all are taken seriously.
Although certain customs and traditions are still followed, there have been many changes during the past few decades that have brought about a more liberal society. Nowadays Pakistanis more readily accept other nationalities, and this obviously is greatly beneficial to single people from the West who may be looking to the Indian subcontinent in anticipation of finding a man or woman with whom to share their life. We are all looking for that special someone who will bring sunshine, warmth and positive energy into our lives. Now, today, there is a great chance of success.
