As salaam alaikum,
That quote was from me, back in July of last year in my entry "[uncensored]: Reaja / React" calling for some solutions to the ever-dysfunctional Muslim courtship world in the United States. I should have known that someone already tried it.
I read the article, and wow. Really?
I think it's incredibly ironic that the man who is setting these up (1) Married for love (which one of the interviewed fathers decried, saying that such marriages only last up to two years) and (2) Did not marry a Muslim. He married an Orthodox Jewish woman. And yet he's setting up a speed-dating service for (South Asian) Muslims too embarrassed to give their last names, some of them even to be interviewed, with stilted conversation that reminds us that, as a community, a lot of young people don't know how to talk to each other.
We ain't ready...
