I'm 20, and born in a Muslim family. my family and I are not that religious though. like we don't wear hejab(cover for our face,hair or body) and we can have relations with opposite sex. but we have some limits. like I can not sex with everyone! and some other examples. its not as open as western girls and not as close as religious Muslims.
so would you care about the girl religious in order to date her?!(usually I don't go on date with people I don't know, but I can go out with friends no matter they are girls or boys. but the point is I'm always worry, if I be friend with an American, what would he thinks about me and my religious, would he tend to start a relationship?)

I'm Asian, and live in Asia, and in a marriage, so this is a theoretical question for me. However, unlike many Westerners today, I don't think we have the same biases against Muslims.
I have a lot of Muslim friends, and think that they come in all shapes and sizes. Some are conservative, others not, and if you're in a country like Malaysia (or, even to some extent, Bangladesh), you wound't even guess for the most part that you're in a culturally-different society!
When I travelled to Africa, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I was not a racist inwardly! The African girls were attractive to me, including those beauties from Ethiopia (of course, the issue of religion doesn't come in here as strongly).
I think Muslims girls are both pretty and nice. As for the theoretical issue :-) of dating, I think culture and attitudes are more important than religious background. Maybe language is important too -- you need to communicate. I think a number of Westerners are just too psyched out about Muslims today (much as they were against Eastern Europeans during the Cold War!)2
