A new mobile dating app is hoping to fill a void that many Muslims and millennials struggle with: melding Western social norms with cultural expectations found in their homelands. For first- and second-generation Muslims in the U. There are other apps geared toward Muslims on the market, including Minder, Ishqr, Muzmatch and Salaam Swipe, but some of them have a reputation within Muslim circles as hookup apps, Bahawdory said.
In addition to women making the first move on the app, Eshq differs from other online dating apps for its friend finder feature, video uplo and Spotify integration, Bahawdory said. There are also planned Eshq events, with the goal of connecting people who have things in common and similar life goals. A lot of these dating apps and websites are just worried about quantity and not quality.
We want to promote women stepping outside of their comfort zone and the shift of Muslim women speaking out, being self-made, and not standing around like a trophy that is waiting to be swept off her feet. Bahawdory said she hopes that the fact she is Muslim herself helps earn her the trust of the women using the app. Muslim women, Bahawdory asserted, increasingly want to rely on making the decisions on their own instead of relying on their families.
Though demographic research data on the use of dating apps and websites is limited, 61 percent of to year-olds responding to a Statista survey said they have used those services. In a Pew Research Center survey, 27 percent of to year-olds and 22 percent of to year-olds said they had used dating websites or apps. While women making the first move has ly been seen as taboo, Bahawdory noted, Muslim women are increasingly growing more comfortable taking the initiative in dating, which allows them to not worry about getting a creepy pickup line.
Judy Jebara, 27, said she ed up for Eshq after trying other apps that left her feeling unfulfilled. Within a few months of using Eshq, she met her current partner, year-old Saif Raja. Obviously you have to be cautious. She met Raja, and the two New Jersey residents have been a couple for nearly a year.
Overall, this app gives women the power to make their own decision. IE 11 is not supported. For an optimal experience visit our site on another browser.
