#1: GET A LIFE. Now we know you’re probably saying to yourself, “Whhaattt! These girls are trippin! I already have a life!” So to clarify what we mean… shopping for hours on a daily basis does not constitute a life. Gossiping on the phone with your BFF (aka your frenemy) for hours does not constitute a life. Facebook stalking Mr. Mashallah for hours DEFINITELY does not count as a life. Get a job! Get a hobby (that in some way betters someone else’s life, i.e. not shopping)! Get a graduate degree! Do something for God’s sake!
#2: Stop ruminating about what you want in life. Seriously, people are suffering around the world in war stricken countries, no one cares about how many bedrooms you want to have in your future house, or what brand of Egyptian cotton sheets you want on your beds.
#3: Getting married is only HALF your deen. Don’t forget there’s another WHOLE HALF that you got to fill! So fill it with stuff that doesn’t have to do with finding Mr. Mashallah, marrying Mr. Mashallah, keeping Mr. Mashallah, planting Mr. Mashallah, teleporting Mr. Mashallah, etc.
#4: If you insist on being a princess, emulate Princess Diana or Queen Rania. Looking fabulous while giving back to your community is a goal worth striving for.
Now to be clear, we are all about being fabulous and confident. Those are the essential traits of a successful Halal Flirter. But let’s not confuse fabulous with fatuity and confident for conceit. There’s a fine line, don’t cross it.
