in response to reader comment: Why do they contact you months later?

Well I'm sure most of us women have experienced at least some form of harassment from all kinds of men... it's pretty much an unstable jerk thing, but because MENA men tend to have no boundaries they usually take things up a notch.

They almost always come back because the alternatives are slim to none. With the political climate being what it is, tourism is drying up in these countries and women also appear to be wising up. The "Shirley Valentine" era has definitely faded. It's also an ego thing... these men have fragile yet overinflated egos that rely on the dominance and control of women. So when a woman finally speaks up or figures his lying butt out it's a knock to his pride.

Don't let him get to you... as long as he's not starting any smear campaigns I'd ignore him.
