Any single Muslim 🐠 in their 30s??? How do you handle the pressure of finding someone??? The last of my single gfs just got engaged... didn't used to be bothered by it before but starting to wonder if I am in fact being too picky... 😕

K1 same shoes as yours. We need a support group lol - or is that called a wingman. OP - Agree with you NYC. Tried the long distance meeting options - my stereotyped view of women from different cities : Houston females - want to be local, stay at home moms, fairly conservative, Chicago - can't imagine a city better than theirs; don't want to relocate and have a huge extended family you need to meet; NYC - where is the next shiny thing and why aren't 6 ft tall in IB? Cali - wholesome and fun; just too far away to meet regularly.

Alright who's organizing and pre or post eid? this is what I have gathered so far for the support group
OP - female mid 30s
K1 - Male mid 30s
A1 - Male of an unknown age ;) + 5 gf
All in NYC I take it.

OP ... I want Kulfi too ☹! Or are you going directly for Ladoos? In which case pre eid Mubarak Ho. :)

Ok so..

AK1- I can't tell if you mean Kulfi and Laddoo literally or if there's some underlying meaning there. (I am so confused).. if literally- Kulfi sounds delicious, but not a fan of ladoos ... Unfortunately I don't know where there's good kulfi in Manhattan. Do you?

A1- Haha.. I wasn't asking you on a date auntiji. Was merely offering to treat you for your matchmaking efforts! Sheeesh...You can safely enjoy your "5 gf/wives" in NYC.

All that article says is we are too picky. If we went from Muslim to don't care about religion our odds would go up significantly. It's a sign to say if people are limiting their options they might be best served by the import/export options from back home. Just my two cents

like

ATK1- I was only asking about this weekend because I decided to come back to NYC and just unwind instead of going away somewhere for the long weekend... no worries...

Let's go with the ice cream festival on Sun, 7/16... plan on meeting around 10:30/11:00? Details:
https://www.facebook.com/events/807671979371148/?ti=icl

Let me know if that works with people... A1- feel free to drop by with your 5 wives/gf! 😜
