Muslim Dating Online Rules
Whether you’re Muslim or not, you’ll want to be conscious of these Muslim dating online rules if you’re active in the online dating world. You can take them as guidelines or helpful advice, depending on the situation. Pretty soon you’ll feel smooth and natural dating a Muslim online. Just remember to always be yourself; never pretend to be someone else.
- Get to know their culture. Whether you’re dating in-person or online, you should always make a point of learning your partner’s culture. These days, there’s generally a more relaxed attitude towards culture as opposed to strict adherence to customs and tradition. Many Muslims are recent or second-generation immigrants who have adapted to North American culture—they have more liberty in revealing their femininity that they weren’t able to in their ancestral homeland because of cultural norms. The next time you’re attracted to a Muslim online, note her level of openness based on how she dresses in her photos and how she describes her lifestyle in her profile.
- Take advice from religious references. A key part of understanding another person's culture is in understanding their religion. A Muslim may seem relatively easygoing but still have culture and religion play a role in her lifestyle. It’s also worthwhile to educate yourself by reading the Qur'an and other Islamic holy texts. This will especially come in handy if you need to impress her more traditional parents. Take special note of how sex is portrayed and advice for sexual relations in the holy texts so that you can be guided in how you should express yourself when referring to these sensitive and private topics while dating online.
- Share music. This is a classic international online dating rule. Sharing music is representative of sharing your culture and being open to understanding hers. In chatting about song meanings or rhythms, you’ll come to a better appreciation of her background. During one of your chat sessions, take advantage of the ability to play music online and put on some of her favorite Islamic melodies to build an emotional connection and set the mood.
- Show your traditional side. Make full use of web capabilities by turning on your webcam and surprise her one day by performing some traditional Muslim dance steps or show her a classic Muslim dish you made. She will be so appreciative of the unexpected surprise and the effort you’ve put in to implement her traditions into your life.
