Muslim dating culture
So, you think, “I tend to find myself in these situations when I know that my ultimate goal is to marry a Muslim.Because there’s nothing higher than a spiritual relationship and a true spiritual connection. And it’s important for me to know that, in the good times, we’re pulling from the same spiritual toolbox.See if there were any mutual friends just to get more insight about that person’s character and that family’s character and the reputation that they have.And then, if both families have approved it, then we would get married.”Are you on any dating apps?
And as much as a Christian guy might be able to support you, they’ll never really know what you’re going through.“Exactly. But if a guy is Muslim, he’s very quick to bring it up.As much as I love sharing my dating stories, there are a lot of experiences that I haven't had. I was 11 years old at the time, and very naive in my understanding about the faith.That's why, as part of It’s Not You, I'll be talking to people with a broad range of experiences to see how things are different — and how they're the same. I didn’t understand the politics of what 9/11 meant, and it was just a very tough time for Muslims in general.I’m now realizing that there is no set path for that — for how to find that person.”The beautiful thing about this is that everyone feels so isolated in their journeys to find love.That’s what compelled me to start writing — I felt so alone.
