And anyone who identifies as a Black Muslim — there are less of them on these apps. In your experience, do people talk about their sex lives with their friends?
The free apps are a little more diverse, but people were less serious on those. So, I was on the apps, and I didn’t have any luck on them. “I will say that Muslim women, if they’re having sex, married or unmarried, tend to be really reserved about the conversations they have, compared to my non-Muslim friends, who tend to be very open and descriptive about the things that go on in their sex lives.”How does that topic even get broached in a relationships if both parties are aware of the fact that this is not something that should be done? The narrative, unfortunately, that gets spoken about is that women who are Muslim are, like, subservient or are not allowed to speak or are really beholden to their husbands in a negative way.

I’m 27 years old, and I feel like I’ve just calibrated my fuckboy meter. If they don’t advocate dating, then what happens if you meet someone? I do want to reiterate that ‘American dating’ is totally against Islamic standards.
And you know it’s difficult because I do see that men do want to start flirting with me.
See if there were any mutual friends just to get more insight about that person’s character and that family’s character and the reputation that they have.
