Dating online for muslim singles only
In February, I finally decided to check out Minder for myself.As someone in my mid-twenties, I'm essentially a prime target for dating apps, yet this was my first time trying one.
Three years ago, after a tough breakup, 28-year-old Saba Azizi-Ghannad of New York started to feel hopeless."Minder helps fix that by bringing people together in one place," Mokhtarzada says.When creating my profile, I was asked to indicate my level of religiosity on a sliding scale, from "Not practicing" to "Very religious." The app even asked for my "Flavor," which I thought was an interesting way to describe which sect of Islam I belong to (Sunni, Shia, etc.).They don't get why you cover your hair or why you don't eat during Ramadan, the holy month of fasting. I've been asked countless times if we get hitched solely through arranged marriages.(We don't.) Some people seem to have a notion Islam is stuck in the 15th century.
