Muslim Speed Dating Advice: The next steps

Monday, March 30th, 2015

We run regular Muslim speed dating events all over London.

Next steps

One of the most common questions we get asked is how someone should finish a date.  You’ll only get a few minutes to meet each person before you are whisked away to meet the next.  So you have to know how to end it.

Most people will wait until the next day and then contact them via the website.  Our guests get two weeks to do this, so it’s the easiest solution. But is it the  best one?

I’d always advise you to take action before the time is up with your date instead.  If you had a great connection then there is no problem about asking them if you can continue the conversation another time. The quickest way is to just to ask to swap numbers or email addresses.  However, don’t leave this until few seconds when the bell has been rung and it’s time to move on.  This will look over keen and frustrate the queue of people waiting patiently behind you.  It’s much better to ask about two thirds of the way in, perhaps when you see the organisers starting to get ready.

Also remember that just because the speed dating is over, it doesn’t mean that your evening has to end.  Go up to the one person you liked most and tell them how much you enjoyed meeting them. You could even invite them to go somewhere else with you, perhaps for a bite to eat somewhere.  If they aren’t too busy you may just be able to have your first proper date there and then. How would you feel then?    If they can’t join you right away then at least you’ll be the last person they remember from the evening and you’ll stand out in their memory.

A word of warning:   Don’t walk around with a long list of phone numbers and ask them to add theirs to the list.  They won’t feel remotely special and it’s a huge turn off.  The same goes for speaking to them afterwards. Pick the one you had the biggest connection with and approach them discreetly.


Good luck!

Dating Guru’s Mailbag: My girlfriend doesn’t trust me

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

Here is the latest dating dilemma answered by our Dating Guru James Preece

download (6)

“Dear James, I’ve been with my girlfriend for almost two years now.  Things are generally good but she has severe trust issues!  She’s always going through my phone looking to see what I’m up to, or demanding to know what I’m up to.  If I don’t tell her then she bursts into tears.  What can I do to keep her under control?  Dev”

Hi Dev, thanks for your message.  My first question is why do you think she is behaving like this?  Has something bad happened to her in the past or have you given her cause for concern?

If it’s the first then you have to be patient but firm with her.

If you’ve hurt her before then it’s no wonder she’s confused and suspicious. Don’t hide your phone from her or snatch it away every time you leave the room.  Try and leave it out in the open and she won’t have any reason to suspect you are hiding something. Make sure you make her feel special and tell her what you are up to.  If you are evasive or confrontational then you’ll never resolve her issues.

Remember that trust works both ways so let her know she is loved and that she has no reason to doubt your intentions.

Good luck!

Muslim Dating: How to make sure you find love this year

Monday, January 12th, 2015

With a new year comes new possibilities and the chance to start again.



It’s time once again to start making our resolutions as we go into 2015.

For some this is to go on a diet, quit their smoking habit or to meet a partner at last.  If this is you then you have definitely

come to the best website.

Here are our very best tips for you to give your love life a kick-start.


1) Try some Asian Dating Events.   This is your biggest opportunity to get yourself out there and start meeting potential matches in the real world. We’ve already got several listed for you to book on the website. This includes the biggest of them all – the Asian Valentine’s Ball.

2) Have a Go at Internet Dating.   The start of the year is the busiest time for most dating sites and ours is no exception.  There will be more new faces than at any other time of year and they are just waiting for your to reach out and say hello.

3) Remember it’s not just you.  Most singles can feel a bit lonely at the start of a new year, but that’s absolutely normal. There are millions making exactly the same resolution as you.

4) Take Responsibility.  It’s your choice whether you are single or not.  Don’t blame anyone or anything else.  Yes, that includes the weather, your income and how incredibly busy you are.

5) Take action!   The only way to achieve what you want is to make sure you do something about it.  Make sure you have a clear defined plan about what you want and how you are going to do it. If you don’t you’ll find yourself in the same situation at the beginning of next year too.

If you need any help or advice then please remember we are always here.  Drop us a message at [email protected]  and we’ll be happy to do what you can.

May 2015 bring you everything you wish for.

Why Manners are Important for Muslim Dating

Monday, October 13th, 2014

I recently read a survey that Britain is forgetting it’s manners.


We were once a proud nation of ladies and gentleman and etiquette was what set us apart from the rest of the world.   But now is seems we have forgotten our pleases and thank yous – especially when it comes to dating.

I believe this is because many people want to remain anonymous and stay within their own protective little bubble. So it’s easier to keep your head down and say nothing than risk tempting an argument.  Men are afraid to hold doors open for women in case they are rude to them.  Or women don’t want to thank the men for dinner in case it makes them look over keen.  It’s a hard game to play so you must get it right.

Making a great first impression is your goal on any date or Muslim speed dating event.  You want people to remember you for the right reasons, not how rude you were to them, the staff or waiters.  Don’t be afraid to make another person feel special.  It’s your best chance of seeing them again.

There are three simple rules you must follow in order to be respectful:

1) Smile. Smiling shows you are in a happy place and enjoying their company.  There’s no better way of showing good manners than by using a kind, genuine smile.

2) Gratitude. If someone does something nice for, even a small gesture then be thankful for it and make them aware.

3) Put others needs before your own.  You should always treat people exactly the same way that you’d like to be treated yourself.  If that means going without something – such as giving up your seat on a train – then so be it.


So what do you think?  Have we forgotten our manners and what can be done to fix it?   Please comment and add your thoughts here.

Happy New Year!

Here’s to a wonderful 2013.

The new year is upon us and with it comes a chance to make our dreams come true.  Many people will use this time to make new resolutions to help them get what they want.  This could be to kick a bad habit or to learn a new skill that will improve their lives.

However, lots of people will start the new year with the same hope – to find an amazing partner.   If that’s you then we are definitely the people to help.

Our Muslim dating site is already incredibly busy with lots of new active member.  January and February are peak times for most dating sites as people start off the new year with great intentions.  So if you are looking for love then you don’t want to miss out on this busy period.  Make sure you have a great photo and a well written profile or you won’t attract any attention.  Even better, contact lots of people that you like the look of and wish them a happy new year.  That will definitely boost your chances and help you on your way.

We are increasing the amount of Muslim introductions events this year to make them better than ever.  We have new venues and new age group categories so there will be something for everyone.  Do book up a few right now as you never know who you might meet.

Remember, the more you do now then the more dates and possibilities you will have later.

Good luck!

Dating in all Weathers

Monday, April 30th, 2012

The weather at the moment is terrible.

Here’s how to help it get you more dates!


We’ve gone from a hosepipe ban to a month’s rain in one day.   But just because it’s miserable outside doesn’t mean that you have to put your love life on the backburner.

When it’s rainy most people will stay inside.   This means that you’ll see a huge increase in activity on online dating sites.  They’ll be tucked up warm in their houses, contacting anyone they like the look of. It’s a peak time and once that you should be taking advantage of.   If you aren’t a full, paid up member of a dating site, such as then you will be missing out on all these possible partners you could be meeting.

When you do manage to set up a few dates, the weather shouldn’t stop you meeting up.  In fact, they might been even keener to get out and do something a bit more excting that staring out the window at the raindrops. There are so many things that you can do indoors – such as meeting for a warming hot chocolate or going to a museum, art gallery or bowling alley.

Having said that, walking in the rain is a very romantic date activity – as long as you both know will be doing in advance and dress properly for it.  Make sure you take umbellas and wellington boots.  It’s a great time for a long walk in the park as you’ll probably have it all to yourselves!

Good luck!

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!
