I’ve always felt more comfortable dating non-Muslim guys, because it comes with fewer expectations.I wear a hijab, but I don’t think people realize that wearing a hijab doesn’t mean you have a pre-determined personality type.
When he came up he said: ' Would you be comfortable in the closet? ' And there began my first and last 12-hour stay in a boy’s closet.
It was hilarious, until it became pathetic; and at some point it got pretty damn uncomfortable. His parents re-activated their front door security cameras when they got home.
And in the middle of it is your average hijab-wearing girl who just wants to listen to some trap music, contour like a Jenner, and not be asked her political views or ISIS every time she leaves her house.
Can a girl breathe — or better yet, can she get a date? When you wear a hijab, something as simple as getting a cup of coffee in the morning can turn into a political statement, and navigating romance isn't much easier.
And then he dropped this line: ' I can’t wait to have you tie me up with that thing.' He was talking about my hijab.
He never texted me back, but that’s probably because I burst out laughing for about five minutes straight.' It's just a kiss,' he said, as if reading my mind. After a long silence he asked, ' You've kissed other guys before, right? "Dating" as it is currently practiced in much of the world does not exist among Muslims.I was hesitant: I knew his parents’ vibe, and finding me in their house would definitely kill it.But, I took the chance, and of course they ended up coming home early. Don’t worry, I’ll hide, which I did while he distracted them and I sprinted from the basement to his bedroom.So what’s a first date like when you're Muslim?
