    Why would a white guy ask a Muslim hijabi girl whom is a complete stranger for their number? It happened to me recently, (I was stopped in the middle of the street) and I'm still baffled at it. His reasons were "So we can talk on whatsapp" and also "Because I think you're pretty". I had no interest in giving my number but clearly he could see I was a Muslim, from my hijab so why. It seemed so strange.

    The simplest explanation is that he was telling the truth... Unless you think no one can tell whether or not you are attractive without first seeing your hair.

    He obviously finds you attractive and wants to get to know you better

    Dating muslims is taboo especially because of all the negative hype on the media about islam- so it is possible some people get turned on by that or are intrigued.

    Perhaps go with the "DEATH TO THE KUFFAR!" T-shirt/hijab combo next time, maybe that way such innocent numpties will get le message :pierre:

    ..and people wonder why I go around proclaiming the failure of state multiculturalism (Cameron, 2011), drawing attention to pariah communities/parallel states within our society, and suggesting Islam is unsustainable outside of the Muslim world! :facepalm2:

    I can understand why they may not want to date a non Muslim because of religion,parents and family etc just like some people wouldn't want to date outside their race/culture.

    Naturally, and that's perfectly understandable (indeed arguably respectable), but this whole *you can tell I'm a Muslim, you're not one of us, you're one of them, so why are you even talking to me* attitude is 'problematic' (to put it mildly). Imagine if I posted the OP about a girl in hijab!?:mute:

    oh okay so you're talking about the us and them mentality? I wonder if Muslim guys are also like this or if it's only girls who behave in such a manner when it comes to non Muslims wanting to date or flirt or whatever else. But yeah it does come across as devisive

    Correct answer. Truth is, many of us kuffar don't bother approaching women with Muslamic credentials, and I can see where the OP is coming from, but still find the expressed sentiment/state of affairs re: importantion of a demonstrably culturally incompatible people completely unacceptable :dry:

    Muslims have been coming to GB since the 15th century and up until 15 years ago there wasn't an issue. Muslims weren't seen as "incompatible" they were seen as what they are...regular humans. Now stop being such a sheep and getting on the media hate wagon.

    Asians have been coming to USA since tens of thousands of years ago. Your point? :dontknow:

    up until 15 years ago there wasn't an issue
    According to whom?

    Muslims weren't seen as "incompatible"
    By whom?

    what they are...regular humans
    Being a regular human doesn't make you culturally compatible. I'm a regular human, but I would not fit in in KSA. Capeesh?

    stop being such a sheep and getting on the media hate wagon
    Apparently we've never met. See my threads FYR. Educate yourself :yy:
