I'm Pakistani Indian Muslim. My family and myself are not cultural at all (worded right?) so an arranged marriage isn't a possibility. I have no social life though my understanding is that i couldn't talk to girls anyway. I don't get how I'm supposed to somehow meet a girl when it seems i can't? And i have social anxiety which means when i have tried speaking i just make a fool of myself. A crush who's also Muslim, i stupidly basically immediately asked for her number no doubt creeping her out. I've thought so hard how i could try salvage something with her or at least get rid of that impression i gave her, though i can't think of anything. Anyway getting offtopic, yes i know I'm thinking years in advance (I'm 17) but how would i approach a muslim girl? Ideally it'd be my crush but that's not really a possibility.

You clearly want to sort it out, seek therapy if so. Or, get on with your education/employment/training

Okay well I heard of this new app lol thats apparently the muslim version of tinder lol
I think its called muz match or something weird like that, you could google it?
Hmm, you're only 17! If you go to uni there will be loads of people there and i'm sure you'll be able to find the one! Its super early to start thinking about marriage now. As time goes on you'll make more friends and develop acquaintances, just keep your circle open and you will meet loads of people.

Oh just read you have social anxiety. I know its easier said than done to 'just get over it'. It's gonna be a long process but maybe you should start of slow and try doing small things that scare you and eventually build it up. Ngl there have been times where I've been way too scared to message even my own close friends first due to anxiety. But now as ridiculous as this sounds I do know its all in my head lol. Your SA won't last forever, by opening up to a few people your confidence will grow and as a result your social life.

Most muslim girls are open to the idea of a non arranged marriage (kept halal obvz), once you get to know her through messaging and stuff, I'd try your best to get your family involved even if they aren't that cultural as you say. It just shows the other family that your serious about her, so you can meet up together and discuss.

Despite thinking of myself as fairly decent looking (although sometimes i feel terrible about my appearance ) i hate photos of myself, can't stand them at all.

For the anxiety?

I am counting on uni or other higher education as i can't see myself interacting with similarly aged people anywhere else, don't really know if i should go though or if i want to, not sure what i want to do in life. The 2 muslim crushes I've had inc current girl, are friends with eachother and both are pretty known i guess? In the Asian community. Aside from school where my crush is the only non white in my classes, i don't associate with any Asians so when i find them i get really easily infatuated

Get out the house, hang out with mates, take up new hobbies, build your confidence and everything else will follow. Perfectly normal at 17.

I have one friend, we go to the cinema now and then but it gets boring and i don't want to appear clingy to him, i always have to suggest going somewhere.

You go to school or college? Try talking to new people. Hanging out with the people who live near you.

Last year of high school and i know it sounds like an exaggeration but school is a dead end. My classes are full of people who stick to their cliques and they don't like me anyway. Where i live, pretty sure there's nobody around my age.

Not to seem like I'm distancing myself from my roots but is it really a "normal" struggle? I have no experience whatsoever with females at all let alone Desi ones. Not to generalize but i imagine the humour and tastes of well white girls differentiates to that of South Asian girls. I'm already unsure of where I'd be in a place with Muslim women as I'm not sure if I'll continue education, even if i was i don't really understand how I'd get to know them in a respectful manner.

Posted before i was done moaning. The few Muslim girls at school, who all happened to be desi, I crushed on easily and get really intimidated by along with subconsciously trying to catch their attention and/or impress them. Sounds so stupid i know, i think it may be because a part of me knows they're a possible partner? Well not at this age of course but you get what i mean oppose to white girls which i find attractive but never crushed on.
