Learn to Respect

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Muslim Dating has it’s own rules.

So you need to remember to respect them at all times.

The most important thing is to remember to be respectful.  With faith comes boundaries and strong moral codes. However,  some people overlook this and then wonder why they aren’t successful at dating!   Men tend to be more relaxed about these matters but women take them much more seriously.

Here are my top tips to help:

1) Be clear about your intentions.  If you aren’t ready to get married then don’t mislead someone into thinking you are. Likewise, it’s not usually acceptable for someone to be dating more than one person at a time.  It’s also not acceptable to live with someone without being married.

2) Be truthful from the start.  Don’t lie about your height, age, size etc. Instead, be judged on the person you are.  If you pretend to be something you are not then once you have been caught out you’ll never regain that trust.

3) Don’t push.  Never put pressure on someone to meet you or to do something they’d rather not. Respect their wishes.

4) Accept.  If someone doesn’t think you are a good match then let it go and realise that a better match will come along.

5) Consider.  Always treat another person in the same way you’d like to be treated.  Remember your manners and be polite and courteous at all times. If you have a good time or they spend money on you then thank them for it.  In fact, you should probably thank them for their time and effort even if you don’t want to meet again.

Happy dating!

Top Ten ways to talk to a woman

Monday, September 12th, 2011

I’ve had some requests from men this week


They’ve asked how to talk to women during speed dating.

We all know that women and men think very differently, so I’ve put together some top tips to help you find things to talk about.


1) Talk about family as women want a man who is close to them. It shows stability, loyalty and a kind nature.

2) If you’ve got a pet, children or nieces/nephews/god children then talk about them – women want to know that you’ll make a good possible father to their future kids.

3) Don’t bring up past relationships, but talk about the future instead. Keep discussions positive.

4) It’s important that you talk about what you are passionate about. By doing so you will naturally get enthusiastic and this will rub off on your date.

5) LISTEN to her own dreams and passions and show that you are interested in them too.

6) Don’t try and offer advice if she talks about a problem.  She doesn’t want a solution, just the chance to air her thoughts.

7) If you are looking for a serious relationship then now is the time to ask them if they want the same. If not, don’t waste any more time.

8 ) If you want to know what women like to talk about, just buy some female magazines.  Keep up with pop culture and showbiz gossip and you’ll never be stuck for words.

9) Men like to talk about facts and figures but this just bores women.  So instead, paint pictures with your words.

10)  Most importantly, show them you are interested by whatever they have to say.


Do you have your own thoughts on this?  Ladies, what would you like a man to talk about?  What should they avoid?
