Kareem; our Lebanese Dan Bilzerian


I am sure that all of you have heard of this sensational phenomena that has taken the United States (and then the social media) by storm. No No! It is not Kim Kardashian (although I have to say they do share a few common traits, among which they are both of Armenian descendant and thankfully Made in America!!). It is her male counter part, Dan Bilzerian. I do not need to go into details about this man as I am sure that most of you, if not all, have already stumbled upon his Instagram account (in case you have not just search for him and enjoy yourselves). In a word, Mr Bilzerian represents everything that is wrong in a man and un-appealing to a woman’s happily ever after; he is a player, a womanizer and a chauvinist. His world revolves around Sex, Guns and more sex and more guns. His mere presence online promoting excess and “debaucherie” (excuse my french) followed by 6.1M , creates copycat wanna- be(s) worldwide, starting with the likes of Kareem.

Kareem is your 30- somthing year old Lebanese “cliche”. Single and out- going, he is very much the fantasy of any materialistic, un-ambitious, typical Lebanese bimbo. It goes without saying that Kareem is an entrepreneur, a man of good quality; his “own business” is never in need of his physical presence and one never quite got around what he really does exactly. But who cares? Kareem is charming and a catch!

To better understand Kareem, the following are a few of the traits he shares boastfully with you:

– Single and always mingling

– Blonds, brunettes, redheads… he does not care as long as the trophy girlfriend (but most of the time, the one night stand) is drop dead gorgeous and the object of envy of his male friends (which unfortunately next week will be in the arms of one of the friends mentioned)

– Always present in the night life scene; you will find him in the VIP section of course surrounded by waiters loading trays of shots and champagne. Female ratio out numbers its other half by 8/10 baring in mind that beauty and all bored and pouty is the minimum requirements for entrance.

– Drives the latest SUV or porsche with a 4 digit license plate number. If lucky, he has a car for the two important seasons of the year (of course one must always have a sports car just in case….)

– The summer season is a nonstop party extravaganza. Reservation at the pool (+jacuzzi) is a requirement to end the tiring week at work (we still have no clue of his main occupation!!)

– His social media reflects his whereabouts and lifestyle

– He takes one two many vacation trips abroad to cool down his crazy lifestyle (only to import the same on foreign soil)

– Hold two phones; one for leisure and one strictly for business (I do not need to emphasize on this, you got my point by now)

– Marriage? who needs to settle down and tie the knot with one woman. Fish (chicks precisely) come in abundance in this world, you have many shapes and colors to gaze at, pick from and toss back at sea.

– Guns are his favorite toys to play and screening live the story of Boardwalk Empire his achievement in foreplay

I am sure that the list can go on and on and on however these are the main traits that came up as I was writing this piece.

The difference between Dan. B and Kareem is that the former has more than 100M in his bank account whereas the latter has saved merely a 100K. Dan. B is a worldwide known loser whereas Kareem is building his reputation locally and in the neighboring countries (except if you want to include Eastern Europe’s vacationing hubs). Furthermore, Dan.B is payed to promote clubs, products and an open sexual lifestyle, whereas our Kareem pays his way into clubs and his womens’ skirts. However, the only important and common trait between these two is an undeniable absurd lifestyle.

Kareem. Get a Life!!!!

    1. Unfortunately a lot of Kareems exist in Lebanon….His name is fictional yet his character ever so present. And yes I suppose he is a charbel khalil lookalike

  1. Well put! After 4 years in this Hollywoodish country, I came to think that this lifestyle is even more damaging to your neurons than the toxins in the air. Obviously this utterly silly /shallow way of life can reprogram your cells and have some major side effects on your brain. People use this as a mechanism to upgrade themselves and escape some sort of poverty. People are hungry for money in this country and ready to fake it (being rich and famous) till they make it! It’s the same pattern all over the country with different social levels. It’s addictive when you live in this bubble; reschedule yourself to simplicity and reality. Many who travelled to Canada returned, because they didn’t find the simplicity lifestyle fit for them. They need to brag and showoff 24/7 even for minor things.

    1. Thank you. Its silly and alarming to see these kind of individuals increasing by the number!!! I know a few people who returned as well because they couldn’t cope to the simplicity and true way of life! but as you know there is a saying in french that says “il faut de tour pour faire un monde!!!”
