Muslim woman dating site

Often in my life, I have found difficulty in trying to satisfy all three strands of my religious and cultural identity, particularly when it came to the opposite sex.As a British woman, it seemed perfectly natural to want to explore my curiosities and fascinations with the world of boys.

I have studied my religion and taken from it the salient points that I wish to live my life by and pass on to my children.

In the first in a series of posts for e Harmony, she explores how dating doesn’t have to mean compromising your beliefs. For those of you that don’t know me, I am The Imposter.

I am a small, loud, brown lady who writes a comedy blog about love, life, dating and relationships and how this entwines with my cultural and religious identity.

And of course, we've all seen aunties (matchmakers), online matrimonial sites (e.g.

shaadi.com, and muslimatcher.com) and matrimonial events (like speed dating and networking events where the goal is a life mate, not a date).

For many Muslims singles dating can be a difficult balance between their own wants and those of their family or society.

Muslim blogger The Imposter has first hand experience of the conflicts which can arise between the search for love and the pressures of tradition.

If you think this sounds like dating — well, yes, it does.

The big difference is that while most non-Muslims just want to meet a special someone and that meeting result in marriage, the only goal of arranged meetings for conservative Muslims is marriage. However, like many of my South Asian Muslim friends' parents, they're particular about the practice of their religion.

I have only ever gone on dates with Muslims because I am committed to marrying a Muslim.

My parents have since changed their minds about dating and are supportive of me.

Arranged marriages are not new, nor are they exclusive to Muslims.
