Best dating site or app for interracial singles?
I believe you should choose your app based on the quantity of people in your target demographics, but assuming you are either in the US or Europe I would go for Tinder since it is the most used. On the web you can find muslim singles much more niche alternatives but the truth is that given enough people you can actually simply retarget amongst a bigger pool. POf is a good example of a large, FREE and easy to use dating site where you can even filter exactly what you are after.
It’s nearly here already, Valentine’s Day and everywhere you will go – you will know ‘love is in the air’…Eye roll. Before you know it, it’ll be wedding season again! It’s yet another reminder of my single status! This time of year was a painful reminder of my reality, for others there was excitement, laughter and love. But all I wanted to do was be invisible.
Weddings were especially a nightmare; I spent that time avoiding eye contact with other guests and pretending to be preoccupied. The last thing I wanted to hear was how single I was and how married everyone else is! It left me feeling like I complete and utter failure …WHAM! Yet another dent in my confidence.
The one thing that never fails to surprise me is the so-called aunties asking my parents ‘why isn’t your daughter married yet?!’ and you’re standing next to them… Not only awkward but rude! Every day became an obstacle course. I was ducking and diving anything wedding related including shops and even T.V programmes!
So, why are you single? Is it because of your hectic work schedule, family commitments and try having a social life on top of that is difficult, to say the least! So, meeting someone and arranging to go on ‘dates’ is asking for a miracle! Or is it something else?
A few years ago in India, when every other youngster didn't have a smartphone, online romancing was largely limited to sending friend requests to people with cute DPs, or perhaps lurking in chatrooms, hoping that the soulmate you were chatting with wasn’t an arthritic grandparent. Then indian dating, of course, there were all the matrimonial websites, but let’s face it, these are the online equivalent of chai and samosa with ladka- and ladki-waale.
Dating apps have changed much of that, removing some of the surreptitiousness and leaps of faith that tended to come with virtual searches for love. People are changing too – they no longer need their parents to trawl through ‘suitable’ profiles and they are a lot more open to casual meetings and online interactions with potential dates and mates. Finally, it looks like young Indians are ready to search for their own partners and to make up their own minds.
