Modern issues facing Muslim singles

Let’s explore some of the challenges many single Muslims have to tackle in their dating lives. 

The Muslim population in Britain is incredibly diverse

Beyond finding a Muslim marriage partner, many Muslim singles are also looking for someone who shares their background, cultural outlooks and other values important to them. The diversity of Britain’s Muslim population, who come from across the world, from Nigeria to Malaysia, can make it difficult to find the exact kind of partner you’re looking for.    

Many don’t get much Muslim dating experience growing up

Some adolescent and young-adult Muslims aren’t allowed to actively date during their youth because of certain restrictions on courtship. For those who explore ‘halal dating’ later, when actively looking for a potential marriage partner, it can initially be a bit jarring and awkward because of this lack of this specific social experience. 

Different generations think differently

As in any culture, Muslim parents and their children can often hold quite different values, particularly when it comes to dating. However, Muslim singles’ strong notions of familial bonds and parental respect can often make the process of finding your own way through your dating journey more nuanced, often involving compromise. 

Why eharmony isn’t like other Muslim Dating Sites

With so many people turning to online dating these days, so are more and more Muslims making use of a Muslim dating site or other similar online services. After all, apart from it being a huge time-saver compared to traditional courtship, you can connect with people in your area quickly and get to know them in a controlled environment.

However, one of the many reasons eharmony is the perfect platform for people looking for meaningful Muslim dating opportunities is that we are not specifically a Muslim dating app. Our dating is specialized in connecting like-minded singles looking for meaningful long-term relationships and marriage, based on a scientific approach to human compatibility.
