Dating when men have job problems
Muslim dating apps are shit and the time it takes to communicate with someone is a turn off.
Because it’s a Muslim dating app, you feel like you are stepping on eggshells when it comes to flirting.
In addition, having been raised Muslim but not necessarily having dated Muslim women, it can often feel like my value set isn’t sought after in a culture that seemingly rewards excess or wealth.
It makes the search for someone special considerably [difficult] and has proven itself a likely pitfall for heartache when values inevitably clash in a long term relationship.
Some don’t reciprocate, which turns you off from flirting at all.
Some women have a long list of things they want in a man.
This doesn’t seem unique to Muslim or South Asian culture.
I assume it’s because women tend to want to settle down at an earlier age as being single after a certain age is still somewhat frowned upon.
Not only am I fighting Islamophobia, at the same time I’m fighting to liberate women from male dependency.
With housing prices so high and enormous competition for high salaried positions, it feels like if you haven’t met a set of arbitrary, sometimes unreachable goals, you’re not worthy of the long term investment needed for a marriage.
The persistent idea that you are measured against your salary and how much you’ve achieved by a certain time in your life can leave you feeling inadequate.
I think both sexes don’t know how to be themselves on dating apps.
We are all either scared of the unknown or we fear being judged.
