Dating culture and country
Jordanians take hospitality very much to heart, and are honestly interested in talking to you and making you feel comfortable.
However, offers tend to flow so thick and fast that it would be difficult to agree to every one, yet people are often so eager it can also be difficult – and potentially rude – to refuse outright.
First and foremost, whether you’re interested or not, is to take the time to chat civilly; nothing is more offensive than walking on without a word or making an impatient gesture, even if they’re the twentieth person that day to stop you.
Jordanians also relate to the natural environment rather differently from Westerners.Clothes that are unremarkable at home can come across in Jordan as being embarrassing, disrespectful or offensive.Jordanians and Palestinians place a much greater emphasis on personal grooming and style of dress than people tend to in the West: for most, consciously “dressing down” in torn or scruffy clothes is unthinkable.It’s almost inevitable that during your time in Jordan you’ll be invited to drink tea with someone, either in their shop or their home.It’s quite likely too that at some point you’ll be invited for a full meal at someone’s house.
