Dear Ms Halal flirter, So… How do i start? Let’s see, I’m Muslim girl living in america and i really like this guy who is also Muslim. We live in the same neighborhood, but we aren’t close family friends. He is a year older and i see him at the mosque every Saturday morning and night. At the mosque I go to the guys and girls don’t talk to each unless y’all are related. So here is my problem, i have liked this guy for awhile now and never spoke to him. How do i get him to talk to me? Thank you

Dear Ms Halal flirter, I have a problem. I am twenty four, and in love with my friend (not muslim) who is a tennis coach. He is nearly 50. He loves me too and comes every other weekend to stay at my place since he lives abroad. He bunks in my flat, which I share with my room mate. Is it normal for a 50 year old to ask/stay at a 24 year old’s home? Would love some advice. Truly confused.

Have you ever asked yourself, “Why haven’t I heard from him? It’s been 10 minutes!” If you’ve asked yourself this question, then calm down because you are crazy. But if you’ve asked yourself, “Why haven’t I heard from him? It’s been [insert number of days>1],” then you may want to put a pause on those wedding plans, and stop daydreaming about Madeeha and Salman (your non-future children) running around your non-existant family home.

Im an awful person .. Im chatting with this guy I met last summer and he got married that same summer. And we have feelings for each other[ I havent told him that I do yet]. I mean the way he talks to me. I can tell he cares for me. Its always him who starts the convos. I tend to keep my distance because HES MARRIED. but I like him so its kinda hard. But I was wondering do you think I should keep my distance ?

What advice do you have, if any, for a Christian guy who really likes a Muslim girl?

So this is my situation, as of right now. I am in love with two guys. One’s my best friend since kindergarten in Islamic School (We’re 16.) The other guy’s a college sophomore at a Ivy league, but he’s only 19.

First off I would just like to say that I love your tumblr page and your advice (which is quite hilarious half the time).
Anyways, I am messaging in regards to a ‘situation’ that I am in right now, actually not even sure if its a situation. Basically, I met this guy about 3 weeks ago at a student government meeting for my university and he seemed really confident, smart, was def easy on the eyes (haha) and is muslim too. For the first time ever I decided to actually go up and talk to this guy considering the amount of eye contact we’d had throughout the meeting, but then I ended up getting busy after the meeting, I saw him lingering around but then he eventually left. So I decided to message him on fb with a reason from the meeting etc afterwhich he added me and we chatted for a couple hours. After that he msgd me the next morning asking for help with something and that was it. Throughout that week I happened to see him everyday and he’s always come up and start conversation with me in person and then on fb chat somehow I’d be the one to start up small conversations. Now, its basically become this thing where whenever we see one another, one of us will say hi n we’ll tlk for a bit and whatever its cool. Last week I happened to meet a friend of his through someone else and when I introduced myself to the guy, he was like oh you’re the one talking to so and so right? Clearly, he’s told his friends about me, but I always always always see him with other girls who are definitely much more gorgeous and are arab like he is. I am a hijabi but I’m not arab. Essentially, I’ve started to really like this guy and I obviously dont know what he thinks of me, plus he is a year younger than I am lol What should I do? I feel like the ‘friendship’ or acquaintance or whatever it is is going to fade out soon especially cuz we dont really have any friends in common and are in different programs etc. How do I get this guy to like me back and notice me in that way I guess?

So it has come to our attention that a lot of you Halal Flirters apparently need more focused and concrete help than we’ve been providing. So here’s what we’re gonna do for you… Send us excerpts from your conversations with Mr. Mashallah and we’ll coach you on how to respond. This is profoundly beneficial for you because your Mr. Mashallah will basically be talking to us. Here’s an example:
Mr. Mashallah: hey
OH HAYY… the guy on your gchat whose screenname you’ve been obsessively staring at for the past 4 years has finally messaged you. REMEMBER: STAY COOL. That means turn your caps lock off. Limit your exclamation marks to ZERO. Don’t use any smiley faces (especially ;)… YET). Say something normal. Something you would say in real-life. Something like:
