It’s been ingrained in me that I will either allow my parents to arrange a marriage for me; or marry someone they disapprove of and be ostracized because of it. My parents don’t look at the whole person; they look at a man’s biodata (a kind of résumé for marital candidates) that lists his education and genealogy, including his relatives’ career choices. Which usually equals dating sites and apps geared toward Muslims.Once I graduated from college and landed my first real job, my parents were ready for me to get hitched. First I tried Ishqr, a dating site specifically for millennial Muslims. Users see one another listed through a username and questionnaire about their interests.Only people who connect with each other can see profile photos; and even then, photos are not required. The only dates I’d ever been on were arranged by my friends, or with men who approached me on their own.It became clear that I wouldn’t be dating anyone on Ishqr or even perusing my options.
It wasn’t because I was picky or because the men I encountered were awful.
In fact, most of them were pleasant and respectful. Created in 2013, the site is still in its toddler stage.
