    OP, surely you should only be asking non-Muslims this question, and not everyone? Because Muslims will obviously go out with fellow Muslims (assuming that they aren't too strict with their religious beliefs about dating and such) because they have the same fundamental beliefs, whereas non-Muslims have very different views, and the poll will look very different.

    Would you ever be concerned if a relative or even a sibling was dating a Muslim ?
    No, not even slightly.

    My reason is not because I don't like Muslims, but because there are huge aspects of their religion that I do not even come close to living my life by and from my experience with friends dating Muslims or people who come from a Muslim household it always ends up either being an outright problem or just being generally awkward and in the long run it's not worth it.

    Yes. More like marry one because I am a Muslim as well.
    I wouldn't mind marrying a person who was born a non muslim if he decided he wanted to accept Islam as his faith and take the Shahada

    I realised that halfway through .It was meant for non Muslims to answer then it attracted others .But it turned out to be a peaceful and relaxed thread.Will take note next time

    Is it true muslim guys look down more on girls who have dated a non muslim guy in the past than a muslim? Please be honest by the way

    I see well if people wouldn't date muslims because of the shootings they're clearly not thinking logically, only some people are doing things like this, most muslims just want peace and get on with their own lives. If they wouldn't want to date them because of differences in views then I understand that I guess, it doesn't matter to me but to others it might and I respect that.

    I think finding someone you want to marry can be quite tricky as nothing is ever guaranteed but I respect that.
    By the way can I ask you something? You know that paragraph I just wrote to you, do you think saying this to a guy I'm actually considering would put him off (we're acquaintances at the moment). I mean would the fact that I'm looking for something serious put him off?

    Funny you say that because I was going to mention in my last reply that mentioning marriage to a non Muslim early on can put him off but I didn't want to hurt your hopes

    You're only acquaintances atm so get to know him a bit more but don't mention marriage in the first year of dating him. We can PM if you want to know more.

    Haha no you shouldn't worry about that, I prefer honesty. But what if he asks why I haven't dated anyone before if I'm not religious? Should I just say I'm really picky and not elaborate and leave it at that?

    Yeah that's fine. In fact that'll also compliment him since he'll feel that he's special as you chose him.

    Sweet.

    My mother has been in a relationship for quite a few years now with a liberal Turkish Muslim. No big deal.

    Don't know, I'm not a religious guy, but I assume so, yes...they might assume that you aren't a virgin, or you've been doing other things (apart from sex), but I couldn't care less
