Dating In Palermo: The Poetic Doctor

Dating In Taipei: The Boring Artist

The Boring Artist seemed super edgy; his Instagram was filled with modern artwork and his Tinder pictures were mysterious. He messaged that he’d love to have a conversation and invited me to his studio while he worked. Usually, I would never agree to go to a guy’s place before first confirming that I liked him, but I’m…

Muslim Dating: From Arranged Marriage To The App Store

I was scrolling through my newsfeed when I saw a Facebook ad for ‘Muzmatch’; an app where you can swipe through Muslim dating profiles. It seemed new, cool and (dare I say it) trippy.

He had 2 tinder pictures and his bio said that he was ‘an Arty Music Gigolo’. Still, something possessed me to swipe right. I was 22, a complete newbie to Tinder and to dating in general and after two days of swiping, he seemed kind of mysterious. My dating life pre-tinder had been pathetic and…

Dating In Penang: #The Pirate Box of Chocolates

I didn’t know what to expect of The Pirate Box of Chocolates before I met him. He seemed clever, to-the-point and fun. On the other hand, he switched a bit to text talk when we got on Whatsapp (Yeah, sometimes I judge people too soon on that). Either his spelling was crap or he had really…

Dating Archives: #The One That Broke My Heart

Location: London, U.K.  Date of the Date: 14.11.15 (Yes I remember exactly, I know it’s creepy) OK this is going to be a tough dating scenario to write. Excuse me while I take a swig of tequila… Cool, I’m good to go. I am so glad I dated #The One That Broke My Heart. I’m…
