I think that religion takes a big part in marriage, not dating. interesting responses though, i know a girl who wears hijab and she dates tons of non-muslim guys.

  • I have crushed on them from time to time, especially since I am Eastern Orthodox Christian and so culturally we are very similar in many ways (including the head covering). Though to be honest, I do not think that I could ever date one. It isn't that I don't like them, but that I know it would be against their religion to date a man outside of their faith, just as it would be against mine. I would feel guilty causing someone to violate their religion, and I would not want to violate my religion either.

  • I'm not religious, so I'd approach it with the same caution I approach dating any religious person with. So long as their religious beliefs don't cause their worldview to strongly conflict with my own (which generally means they can't be too strongly religious, but I suppose it's possible) I'd probably be fine. But just them being Muslim would not in and of itself completely make me uninterested in dating them.

  • No, I would never date a Muslim, for one simple reason - I see no future with her unless I convert to Islam, and I have no intention of converting to ANY religion.

  • Let's just say, I've encountered a few Muslim girls and repeatedly ran face first into brick walls of ethnocentric dogma. Look, I tried to be tolerant and accepting, and ironically accepting them for who they were wasn't enough. We had no future unless I converted.

    Islam is spread by more than just the sword. The scripture is truly diabolical in how it coerces people to think one way, or no way.

    Based on my previous experiences, I know to never approach a Muslim girl for romance. Waste of time. I tried.

    • .. ok well i guess that's true about all religious scripts since their main point is to lead thought into a certain direction since that's the entire point of religion but i'm curious, would you say the same about religious Christians?

    • Judeo-Christian values are much closer in line with my values compared to other religions. There are plenty of flaws of course.

      Being Atheist, even Christian girls are off the table. However, I grew up Christian and know that there are plenty of secular Christians that go to Church for tradition rather than a literal God. To me, that's fine. I respect cultural tradition. I don't respect ethnocentric dogma, as is the case with Islam.

  • No, never been attracted to one, never will be, not interested in dating them, they're not allowed to date anyways.

    If they wear a headscarf, I don't trust them. That's my rule on it.
    Why? Because they follow a doctrine of internalized misogyny and sexism!
    No, the whole "hiding my hair keeps me pure" won't really sell it to me.

    • @echoaj thats good its good to have different views

  • "Yes I have and would date one." but

    1. I'd be scared of their fathers trying to harm them for something I did (like me waving or approaching them).

    2. I'm a black dude from the hood (like I'm not the guy her father wants to see walk through his door HAHAHAHA)

    3. I'm not religious + I know or think that they're only supposed to date other Muslims, right? So it wouldn't work out.

    4. If they practice the religion the right way, that'll mean no sex before marriage. And I couldn't do it.

    But hey I'd happily walk through a park with a girl dress like this dybiz.com/.../sexy_cute_muslim_scarf_girl.jpg if given the chance. It's just that the "religion's rules" would get in the way, not the way that they dress.

    • The way she dresses is part of the religion rules.

    • @Mesonfielde I've always wondered was it a rule and why some of them didn't wear them in public? But do you mean how she's "covered" of the "hijab"? Because either way i wouldn't mind it since I'd know how she looks under neath it all ^_^

  • I'm not religious, so ideally my partner would be atheist too, though the girl I'm talking to/with (kinda complicated) is Christian. At first it was a turn off, but then I thought "well, let's see if we can deal with this", and so far it hasn't been a problem, but who knows in the future.

    I wouldn't date a Muslim girl though, I'm completely against Islam and their beliefs so I can't date a girl that supports that.

    • Are you in an area that has Muslims?

    • I was born and raised in Spain, so there's always been some Muslims around me, some of them were my friends too.
      Now I live in America, where there's quite a considerable amount of Muslims.

  • I'm not sure, I know that isn't terribly helpful, but I don't know if muslims can date outside their own religion or what the rules are regarding that. I'm not muslim however I have no issues with muslims or really any other religions. I suppose if I were single again and a muslim girl was interested in me I wouldn't be opposed to it.

  • At this point I WOULD PREFER a Muslim woman! They are comfortable being females, for the most part. Second reason is that I think she would be respectful enough to let me raise my kids and not use the courts here in our BS system to lie and keep them from me just because she is mad at me, or has some childhood issues I didn't know about that made her a sociopath.

    Anyway, arab woman are gorgeous, I know not all Muslims are arab, there are black and white Muslims, but its the traditional viewpoint that I respect, not the radical one, just the traditional one.

    - If that means someone born to muslim parents, yeah
    - If that means someone actually following Islam- the NO

    "have you ever had a crush on a person who's obviously Muslim"
    -yep

    "If not, are you intimidated by them?"
    -why the hell would someone be intimidated? No logic there

    • No, the correct term is Somalian. Because Somali is an arabic terminology. I am from India. I can call myself Hindustani, I don't. That's the correct term in my language, not English. Somalian is correct in English.

  • I don't mind Muslims. I was born a Muslim but have been an Atheist for a while. I wouldn't mind if she was a Muslim and I understand the culture but she also needs to understand that it's very unlikely that I'll ever go back to Islam.

    Not all people are as worldly traveled and comfortable with other cultures as I am. And obviously, the Moslem women I date have no problem in having sex with a non-Moslem and not being married to him (a few were virgins when we met).

  • Sure. However, they have to accept that I'm not religious and I'm not about to do religious activities so it'd just be their thing, not my thing. At the same time, I would have to make sure I was open minded and didn't look down on them for being religious. It could be difficult depending on our personalities but it's definitely a possibility.

  • I would never date a religious Muslim guy. They probably want to indoctrinate this "infidel" and i'm SO not cool with that. Plus, i would be scared of what Position women holds for him. Does he, like many radical Muslims, think that women are inferior to men and this can be "disciplined" using violence? Does he think that I should cover up my arms and hair and neck? Does he think that I should bleed on the first night? If he thinks this way, he can go drown in the ocean for all I care. I refuse to have anything to do with a sexist narrow-minded, brainwashed plg.

    • By your logic, Christians are all sexists as well judging from the amount of sexism within the bible (“I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.” (1 Timothy 2:12)) I'm not over here judging all Christians for that verse, why? Because I know Christians are human beings and have a conscience. You should use your logic and deduce that maybe, just maybe, the individual is to blame for the crimes they commit, not a book.

      Also being religious is not mutually exclusive from being tolerant and respectful. The most respectful and tolerant people I've met were respectively a religious Catholic and a Muslim.

    • You didn't answer my question, sister ;)

      Yeah Christianity is kinda sexist too. But at least it tells husbands to love their wives instead of using violence to "discipline" them.

      And I did say that there are more tolerant Muslims. Those I could maybe get along better with. Look, as long as I get the respect I deserve from them and they don't treat me differently because of my sex or Religion, i can be friends with Muslims. That's all that matters.

      But dating? Like I said, and like others have said, they'd probably want to cover this "infidel" and that's not respect in my opinion.

    • If that's you in your profile pic, it's probably because you're really pretty with it. Like the classic hijabi beauty. And people always think Muslim girls are really good girls, so they'd think you're a good girl, you study hard, are hard to get and on top of that you're pretty, that's hard for guys sometimes.

    • thank you :) i'm sure you're gorgeous too

  • I don't think I could date someone who was very strongly religious, no matter what their religion was. If he was moderate though--believed in most of the principles, but wasn't hard core and didn't try to pressure me into joining--I'd date a Muslim guy (or any other religion).

    I do admit though, that I have some more hesitation dating someone who claimed he was Muslim than someone who claimed he was Buddhist or Christian or something. I feel guilty about it, and probably it's because of media influence. But I just subconsciously feel that Muslim men are less likely to respect me as an equal and respect my right to choices. It's silly, since I know there are as many inequality issues in Christian doctrine as there are in Islam, and Christian guys can still treat girls as equals, so obviously Muslim guys can too. But it's still a subconscious belief that I've built up, and I know it's unfair, but a Muslim guy would have to prove himself as a decent person to me more than a guy of another religion would. :/

  • Dear, i am an gyptian muslim girl , i am dating a non-religious chirstian American guy , we met abroad , and fell in love , we got along very easily, he knew i was , muslim from the first day and still he couldn't help but fall in love with me, we were hanging out and walking hand in hand , i met his bestfriends and they all loved me, we were laughing and enjoying our time together, still i didn't drink with him and i didn't have sex with him, he accepted it and loved me, but we still hugged and kissed him on his cheeks, i went back to me country and we are still talking, his friends are scaring him a lot, he read about our religion and go very scared, fearing that he will have to change a lot in order to marry me. but what i do is that i try to comfort him as much as i can , i tell him that islam doesn't have to be very hard/strict on non muslims that want to convert, i assure him that i won't push him to do anything against his will, and that specially in Egypt, the society is not very closed as he thinks , anyway, we are still together, we have times when we freak out and want to back step, but we are still willing to see what will happen, since i have also seen him drinking, seen his friend partying and drinking and kissing, and i never judged any of them and never judged him,,, the key is to love the person for who he is without trying to change him/her
