What’s it like to be Muslim in the dating game in NZ?

Posted on

The Project spoke to Muslim matchmaker Adnan Altaf, who said there’s a wide spectrum of daters – from the less conservative people who go out alone, to the more conservative who use a chaperone.

Mr Altaf said holding hands is a no-no, but he prefers not to have anyone watching over him.

“It’s not chaperoned, but it’s also not physical,” he said.

He said the Muslim apps aren’t much different to Tinder and Bumble, but they’re growing more slowly within the community.

This week is Dating Week on The Project, and the show will be continuing to explore how different communities approach dating in New Zealand.
