I am Muslim (not very religious though) so I may not be much help to this question haha.
But as a Muslim woman I can tell you that the only issue that may come in the way are the parents. The parents usually put many limitations on the female Muslim that it becomes hard to date, which we are not allowed to do. Hench why I never did (until I met a halfie whose parents are Muslim and who I am now engaged to).
I remember being all like "pft! I'll marry and date WHO. I. WANT"
But in all honesty, thet never worked out so well. Men see me as some sort of obstacle because of my religion, and then the Muslim woman tries so hard to convince them it'll work out. But then the guy gives up, because he doesn't understand why she needs to be home before dark (which in the Fall-Winter months is like 5pm...). It makes no sense to him.
He doesn't understand why she neeeds to hide her relationship and can't intro him to her parents. He feels too much like a secret.
He doesn't understand why she wants to wait for marriage to have sex.
In my experience and hearing from other Muslim women, there seems to be too much of a clash. The non-Muslim man tries and tries to understand... But it becomes hard. Which I completely understand.
I'm not saying ALL non Muslim men are like this. In fact, I know of a good handful of non Muslim men who are now happily married to Muslim women.
All I'm saying is dating is pretty damn rough.
I'm glad the man I chose is super understanding (because he knows a bit about the culture from his parents), even though he had no idea I was full Muslim when we first met haha.
It just makes it SOOO much easier for us Muslim women.
Huge appreciation for the non-Muslim men who try their best to understand her and are really patient. We seriously appreciate it.
