Dating a muslim guy
If the first three things that come into your head when your hear the word “men” are: they all suck, all the good ones are taken, there’s no one out there for me or any other variation of that, please, do yourself a favor and STOP DATING!
If you asked me to tell you about my boyfriend, I’d spend hours going on about how he makes me laugh even when I’m trying to be stroppy, and how he brings me donuts when I’m stressed (He’s a keeper, right? For some reason though, when I’m mid-way through my well-rehearsed story about how we met and how in luuurve we are, the bit that people get caught up on is the fact that he’s Muslim... I was christened as a baby, my grandma still has the puffy white gown that I wore, and we go to church on Christmas morning, but like many girls in their 20s, I wouldn’t say that religion plays a significant part in my day to day life.
I’m a lot more selective now, and have faith that the one meant for me will cross my path. Don’t downplay yourself, your accomplishments, or your hopes and dreams.
If the guy in question can’t handle the fact that you bring more to the table (on paper at least), he’s not for you.
There’s nothing you can do about it and you want someone who can’t get enough of you and you can’t get enough of them. Yeah he might say the right things, but is he flaky? No real personality or conversational skills other than trying to pick you up? Compatibility is what I look for now, although a little charm never hurt anybody if it’s coming from a genuine place.7.
You want someone to connect with the real you, so that’s who you should be.A guy once asked me to meet him at a Mexican restaurant that had L-shaped seating where the guy had the perfect opportunity to sit closer to me rather than right across as per usual. Rejection is a part of the process, doling it out and receiving it as well. Know what you want so you don’t get swayed by every smooth talker who’s not really a match for you.Don’t get hung up after a string of rejecting/rejections. Be aware of subtle red flags and know your deal breakers.On the flipside, if you like someone, let them know! You don’t have to kiss 100 frogs before you find your prince…It’s okay to be picky, because it only takes one good date to turn into one great relationship.So for now, I’ve put a pause on actively meeting people.
