Dating a muslim
The downside is, some people refuse to look past the Muslim part.

Sadly, racism and prejudice is still very much a thing among some people, and too many are still taking warped ideas about Islam and images of a minority of Muslims doing awful things on the news, and applying them to the majority. Some people choose to later when the whole marriage thing happens, but it’s a choice) ‘Does he mind people knowing that you’re a couple?

Nope, I don’t see the logic there either, and it really is quite sad. Although it’s hard for people our age to get that once upon a time, gay, inter-race or inter-faith couples just weren’t a thing (at least publicly), and for some members of a more conventional, older generation, its still something that their getting their heads around.

Don’t get me wrong, every relationship comes with its own healthy dose of arguments and awkwardness.
But there are still certain things that you’d only know if you’re not Muslim, and you’re in a relationship with someone who is...
We celebrated his birthday last month, and I wanted to take him out to a nice restaurant for dinner. I found out that when you’re celebrating a special occasion, you’re sometimes quite limited with choice, especially if neither of you fancy Arabic food and your boyfriend doesn’t fancy being veggie for the night.
