You meet someone you like, you fall in love, you may or may not ever meet his friends; depending on weather his family is open minded or not, you may or may not ever date in public, you may or may not meet the family until (if you get this far) the man announces to them that he plans to marry you.Then, what happens if the family doesn't agree or worse: World War III erupts and potential-mother-in-law suddenly develops a "near" fatal heart condition?
On the upside, it is interesting and there is always something to talk about.
The reality is that many do and many marry people they have fallen in love with.
Overall, it is still the exception and not the rule, yet visit any Starbucks or mall in the country and you can see that Western style dating is happening in Kuwait.
Many men just don't want to get married, leaving the single girl to wonder if she should invest time and effort in the relationship, or to get out and look for another that might be more "serious".
The grass always seems to be greener on the other side of the fence, no matter which direction you choose.
