Solo living has become a significant trend all over the world over the past few decades.
Including a young woman from Madinah who introduced herself to me in very broken English when she realized I was not Saudi and then spent 10 minutes or more grunting and groaning!

Normally by Mutawa who have nothing better to do with their time than harass innocent women in the street.
While you are not going to be able to join any sex dating sites or view porn in Saudi Arabia you can still find many ways to contact the opposite sex.

More and more people choose to live alone as modern work patterns and financial independence enable them to choose the lifestyle they want.
