    N.B: I am a muslim male

    So.. I'm 22 and I am looking for a long term relationship, by long term I mean someone who I will hopefully marry.

    I'm very transparent about this and I am not interested in short term relationships.

    I'm very academic and I am told that I am a good looking guy alhamdolilah. But I'm struggling to find a girl of similar age who is pious. I understand no one is perfect but I feel rather disappointed when I'm talking to someone who is attractive and modest but they lack good character, they're very materialistic, argumentative, attention seeking for no reason etc.

    This tends to be very common among young muslim women. I find English girls are way more polite and respectful in general. (please don't attack me, i am not saying all muslim women are like this)

    Don't get me wrong, I love having a laugh ALL the time so I'm not looking for someone who is the strictly mature type

    My parents wont help me because they don't want me to find someone from the UK since they don't know anyone here (yeah i know , pretty lame logic). So I'm on my own on this one.

    What should I do? I'm sure there are thousands of girls who would interest me, but I don't talk to many people so it's also hard for me to get out there and cross paths with one.

    Any advice ? http://static1.tsrfiles.co.uk/57a34a...lies/smile.png

    I wouldn't hold any luck when it comes to English/Briish etc girls and I'm afraid its you're a Muslim. I find English girls tend to avoid Muslims as boyfriend/husband material due how the attitudes towards women perceived (whether rightly or wrongly). It's not racist as I would never discrimste against you, it's just you're cultural background that some find to have backwards attitudes, especially towards women. I think your have more luck from someone who is from the same religion and cultural.

    For example, do you think I should be able to wear a bikini in public? I live near a beach so wear one most of the time in this weather. Even to go to the shop!

    Do you support banning the veil in public?

    I'm American by way but lived in England for 7 years (I'm 22). However we are culturally the same
    As the British
