As interesting as it is to hear the perspectives from the girls’ side, it’s even more interesting to consider what it’s like for a non-Muslim guy to fall in love with a Muslim woman.This is especially especially intriguing when the woman wears hijab.
As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, the perception exists amongst Muslim girls that there aren’t enough Muslim guys to go around. Muslim guys tended to judge them based on external factors such as their looks and career choice while non-Muslim guys were more open-minded.
For some girls, this means the prospect of ‘converting’ a non-Muslim guy becomes a sort of last resort. I’ve discussed this issue with several girls, some of whom have actually been in relationships with non-Muslim guys, and some of whom who think it’s not a bad idea. Non-Muslim guys were more approachable and friendly.
Converting to a religion isn’t a decision to be taken lightly, so it’s understandable that love doesn’t always conquer all in these cases.
Other relationships have flourished and eventuated in marriage, but it’s not always happily ever after.
Muslim guys had too many I can understand where these girls were coming from.
