He's after a green card. Every time I hop the border and pass through Rotterdam I see more and more Somali freshies romancing and chirpsing each other at the station

I considered using Holland as a backup plan with Brexit. Its close to the UK, Dutch are good English speakers and the country is safe with lots of muslim neighbours.

But I don't want a fob husband. I need to catch an American Abdi on vacation in London.
 
Calling bullshit on that, never seen a Somali live there.

Calling bullshit on that other claim too, Somali's in London are notorious for being closed off.

Good choice, but I think from a strictly Muslim pov UK is better in the social sense. I'd argue less overall racism and discrimination. That said, there are a lot of Muslims living in perfectly happy in bubbles in large cities like Rotterdam.

Ececonomically speaking, I think the UK is in for it.

What is the quality of these men though? Coz in my experience, guys who chase white women tend to be one of 2. 1) Bougie white wannabes’ who drink and say they’re atheist, or 2) the more common group - the hoodlums.

Most Somali girls aren’t checking for either demographic. I think if you break it down to Somali Muslim eligible bachelors - most of them will be with Somali girls.
Not true, we are just warming upp för albanian muslims.

Damn. My nigga Kunta ain't getting no love. Ya hate to see it.
Not what I said. Kunta ought to appreciate his West African beauties instead of fetishizing foreign women that don't find him attractive or are indifferent. Go where you are wanted. Don't cheapen yourself by doing the opposite. Its desperate energy.

In my city there's many 30 year old somali girls and boys, but they're not marrying eachother.

The girls are marrying men in france, netherlands, kenya etc same with the guys

Isn't it easier to marry someone living in same country as you ? Why are they avoiding eachother.

Does this happen anywhere else? So bizzare
It's because they know each others secrets, would you marry a guy who lives in the same city as you who's entire sexual history you're aware of? Especially if he isn't a well behaved mister? The guys marry out because they either fornicated with most girls and don't see them as ideal wives or vice versa. It all comes down to zinah in my honest opinion, a guy from abroad won't know you got a double penetration by Farax, Jamac and Abdi.

I find most UK Somalis wouldn’t move out of the UK for marriage. There’s too many good options tbh.

Outside the country is rare, but hardly nobody marries someone from the same city. Everyone knows each others secrets and gossips. People tend to marry girls from outside the city

Sxb I'm not moving to burgerland. I'd import the xalimo. The netherlands is a nice country (if you're not broke).
 
Somalis definitely have a high intermarriage rate, I would estimate that 90-95% of somalis in diaspora marry a somali. People here just troll and push an agenda.

Our good intermarriage rate might suffer if we continue to have petty gender wars. Niggas are 25 talking meaningless shit about opposite gender.
 
Most of us agree Somalis intermarry. But I do think this will decrease over time in the diaspora because 1) the number of eligible bachelorettes is bigger than the number of eligible bachelors; and 2) it’s quite hard for young Somali people to ‘find’ each other. We are a minority in most places.

We need to adapt our culture to facilitate good marriages ( where the main criteria isn’t qabiil). The Asians and Jews use weddings/cultural events but Somalis usually have segregated weddings and we have zero cultural events.

You are correct. I do believe if someone really wants marriage, they will find a way. But ironically, people are less social than before. Everyone is on their phones and no one talks to each other. No shame in having skin in the game. Somalis will talk about you anyways.
 
Why aren't Somalis....well its projected that around 40% of Gen Z will never get married so its not an issue isolated to our community though I expect the % will be a bit lower due to being Muslim.
