21st century dating problems vermontfishdating com
That said, our messaging and rules are very clear that it’s not a hookup app and is for serious relationships and we have strict policies around offensive users and profiles.
‘We believe that once we get to about a million users we will have shifted the stigma in the Muslim community against online dating and it will be considered a normal means, perhaps even an ideal means, of finding a partner.’ But the difference between such apps and western models is that Muslims who find suitors do so in the hopes of marrying each other in the near future.
The founder of Minder, which has 250,000 users, tells uk that he was inspired to create the app having seen the difficulties of dating as a Muslim.
Haroon Mokhtarzada says: ‘Fundamentally in the west we have a density problem where you simply don’t bump into enough Muslims on a daily basis.
‘I go through stages of nonstop dating, mostly to show my family that I am actively looking.
‘Family members have this misconception that it is easy to find love on these Muslim dating sites because so and so has done it within the community.
I am of the opinion that social media (rant incoming) has fucked up dating entirely as it is but this is next level depressing.So we decided to create a virtual space where Muslims meet’.The name comes from Tinder, an app known mostly for its hookup service.Ultimately though, marriage is always on the cards. Of course, because of the large number of Muslims around the world, 1.8 billion at that (almost a quarter of the world’s population), it’s difficult to say these are the definitive practices of followers.There are many other ways Muslims approach love and romance, if at all.
