2) Can couples hold hands in public or is that forbidden? I teach ESL and have experience teaching children to adults. I lived in Japan before and had a fantastic experience however my dating life suffered as an American female.

Thanks again, M While women are very much outnumbered by men in the UAE the number of "date-able" men is pretty limited.
