BBPin# Pick-up & Other Flirtation Methods in Kuwait

Alot of peeps who come to Kuwait see wonderous new things that they may have not seen anywhere else in the World (ok I’m stretching the truth to breaking point but just go with me on this); drive-by Baqala’s, the Kuwait Towers (I’m trying hard to think of other examples and running low!) etc.

Most amazing however, is the BBPin# Pick-up.

Don’t understand what I’m talking about? Heres a visual aid:


I would like to know, how incredibly handsome or filthy rich said person driving car above is, that the mere sight of them by any woman, pedestrian or driver, will prompt them to immediately take out their BB’s and send in their flirtations etc. begging for the chance to be the one for him.

Its like the guy is saying, “I cannot be bothered to flirt with you, so here, just take my BBPin# and get in touch me whenever”.

Some guys are old fashioned and just put their number on the car.

Theres also the “Red-Light-Ravish”, I saw this myself, where a guy would get out of his car at the traffic light, crumple up a piece of paper with his number on it, and toss it into a car with a female driver. Again, “I can’t be bothered to flirt right now, just get back to me whenever”.

How does a girl even respond to that? “Oh hi, I’m the girl who you gave your number to on the stop light near Marina Mall, how r u? Want to go for coffee sometime? You can come pick me up?” To which the guy would be like, “Woman you already have a car!”.

Flirtation is an art lost in the State of Kuwait.

Heres a bit of recent news, doesn’t it just kill the romantic in you when you read something like this:

Flirtatious boy hits bottle on girl’s head (TITLE FAIL ARABTIMES, shouldn’t you say, Flirtatious boy hits girl on head with bottle? *smh* must be lost in translation)

KUWAIT CITY, April 15: Police are looking for a Kuwaiti youth who struck a girl with a bottle and caused severe injury to the head after she refused to take his phone number at a beach along the Arabian Gulf Street.

Sources said the youth tried in vain to give his mobile number to the girl, so he turned to insult her. However, he became furious and hit the girl with the bottle when she retaliated, and escaped. Paramedics rushed the girl to the Amiri Hospital after passersby reported the incident to the Operations Room, and a case has been registered against the youth.

And since we’re on the subject of Cars in Kuwait, take a look at this:

The pick-up truck is already a beast to be reckoned with on the streets, so someone please explain why some people feel it necessary to monster-truck-ify their trucks into the behemoth above? Honestly, what is the driver trying to compensate for, I wonder?
