Muslim singles know just how important marriage is viewed in their communities. Because of this, they often feel pressure to find someone to marry quickly and conveniently. Yet those who’ve been through the experience of finding a soul mate know that there’s very little that’s convenient about it. For a select few, it comes from that random encounter that we always see in the movies or read about in sappy romance novels. Yet for the rest of us, we actually have to work for it.
Where to Meet “The One”
Potential players in the Muslim dating game are all around you; you just need to know where to look. Here are some of the more popular places to meet other singles:
- College: College provides the ideal opportunity to meet others as you work in classes together, attend school events, and form personal relationships alongside professional ones. Even if you’ve already finished your schooling, consider going back and taking a course such as ballroom dancing or cabinet making just to get the chance to interact with new people.
- Volunteering: Volunteering to help with religious or civic events is a great way to meet other people who share your interest for being engaged in the community.
- Public places: It may seem incredibly cliché, but there’s logic behind the idea that you’re more willing to meet someone in places where large numbers of people congregate. This can include local parks, libraries, coffee shops, bookstores, and even grocery stores and laundromats.
- Online services: You may be leery jumping into the online dating scene, but there’s a reason why online dating has become one of the most popular forms of initiating courtship today. You’re able to be matched to others who share your same values and interests, and to take your initial interactions as quickly or as slowly as you want.
Finally, don’t allow people to scare you away from dating within your office. If you feel a special connection with a co-worker, go ahead and pursue it. You may end being glad that you did.
Ultimately, you just need to be willing to open up and put yourself out there. Muslims4Marriage.com allows you to do that in a safe environment where you’re interacting with people who have the same goal as you: finding that special relationship that results in a happy Muslim marriage.
