You start to feel like you're looking at everyone who's left on the shelf.” Muslims using an internet dating site, such as and Muslim Mingle, I’ve heard that the problems can get even more unsettling. AMARATES PLEASE MARRY ME IF ANY OLD LADY OR GIRL WANT YOUNG BOY FOR FULL LIFE WITH 50 YEARS AGRIMENT [sic]” reads one post.

As well as the issues of “he's too pious,” or “he's just a bit boring,” there can be far greater worries about whether potential suitors are simply weighing up your worth based on your ability to secure them a visa. The whole experience raises a bigger question: how do you find someone of faith to share your life with when you are in a minority?

Rape within marriage wasn’t a crime because a wife was, essentially, sexually owned by her husband. So why then, do liberal, feminist calls for equality stop at borders?

Decades of hard, tough slog by feminists changed many of Ireland’s anti-women laws. I am at a loss to understand why equality is purely for one particular group of people and not for others.

Scrolling through Christian Connection, the most popular UK Christian dating site, profile after profile said almost nothing about the men in question.

There's also the sense that some men are using their profile to advertise themselves as the perfect Jewish husband-in-waiting: “Lots of them are just looking for a wife, ASAP – they post pictures of them with their nieces and nephews, basically saying, 'look what a great dad I'll be'.And thirdly, because I'd become really tired of trying to explain my faith to the atheists I was dating, who at best looked on it as a quaint eccentricity, and at worst just thought I was an idiot.Unfortunately, as hit and miss as internet dating can be on mainstream, generic sites, it gets even worse on the niche ones, contrary to what you'd expect – at least in my experience and several other women I've shared tales of woe with.But this should not mean that we blindly defend practices – against women and minorities – that we would never tolerate in our own countries.Questioning certain cultural practices of the Islamic world does not automatically make one Islamophobic in the same way as questioning certain practices of the Catholic church did not make us hate all Irish Catholics.
