One of the sites is Arab lounge and is in action for over 8 years.I was surprised that it had over half a million members, of which a large number took paid membership of approximately $40 a month. This is a dichotomy hard to explain and shows that Arabs and Moslems from all walks of life want to enjoy life and not be restricted by strict laws and practices.
There are another dozen sites like the one mentioned and one has only to surf the net to come across them All of them offer free membership, but in case you wish to have access to premier services a paid membership is a must.
Frankly there is no harm in these dating sites mushrooming all over the world. But it just shows that Arabs and moslems are just like other people and cannot be kept in an iron cage for long. Some of the photos on the sites are enough to titillate the palliate of anyone one. They are revealing and again show that Muslim dating sites have a lot in common with other sites.This leads to the fundamental question that Human nature just cannot be caged. The desire is there and religion or no religion has little relevance.
