Why our Muslim Speed Dating Events are the best

Monday, June 27th, 2011

We often get told we run the best Muslim London dating parties.

Here are the top five reasons why our events really do work.

1) High quality guests.  Our Muslim dating site is aimed at British born, Asian Muslim professionals. As such, the calibre is very high and everyone is there to genuinely meet someone for a relationship or marriage.

2) Great hosts. We hire the best hosts in the business.  There are friendly, knowledgeable and there to help YOU. If you every have a question, need some advice or want some introductions that all you need to do it ask them.

3) Nicest venues.  We put a lot of effort into making sure that we only use fantastic venues that suit our events.  We make sure they are stylish, yet drinks prices are fair.  They are always exclusively hired out to us and in easy to get to London locations.

4) Reasonable prices.  Our events are very affordable and offer excellent value for money.  Most events are usually around the £15 mark and all Premium Members get 50% off the events for them and there friends too. If you meet 20 people then that works out at less than 40p a date!

5) They don’t end once the party is over.  If you attend an event, we give you two weeks to use our online messaging service to contact everyone you met. We don’t have useless tick boxes that restrict who you can email.  Instead, you can view photos and profiles and get the chance to get in touch with anyone that you wish.

Do book an event soon and see why our events our so popular.

Good luck!

What do Muslim Singles want?

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

Last week I told you to make a list of what you want.

But you also need to consider what THEY want to!

You’ve got your own list of dealbreakers, but so has everyone else.  So there’s no point emailling a 20 year Muslim girl if you are 48 or a Muslim man living in Scotland if you are in London.   It’s so important that you consider what they are looking for as much as you what you are after.

Otherwise you’ll either get no replies or a lot of “thanks but you aren’t my type” emails.  That’s no use to anyone so save yourself the unecessary rejection.

We’ve found that religious practice and “relationship seriousness” are the most important factors when it comes to Muslim dating.   So if you want casual fun then don’t waste the time of someone looking to get married.  It’s just not fair and it’s disrespectful.  One of the common complaints we get is that fun focussed members are contacting others who want to settle down.

Please keep this mind and only contact suitable matches.  There’s someone for everyone on the site so spend a little targetting the right people and you’ll have a much more rewarding experience.



Good luck,
