Iranian Personals is advertised as the perfect place for Iranian daters to meet each other within a dating environment that specifically caters to their tastes and needs. Whilst the site may obviously attract a higher proportion of Iranian daters than other sites, it’s hard to see what features specifically address the needs of Iranian daters.
For the most part, the site is everything like a normal dating site, and certainly accepts non-Iranian, non-Muslim (and even non-religious) users. For some, this relaxed environment (mirrored elsewhere) will be exactly what they are looking for, whilst others will prefer the more strictly ‘halaal’ approach to dating advocated on other Muslim dating sites.
Joining Iranian Personals takes a little time and commitment. The extensive user questionnaire that forms the basis of the joining process is around four screens long and delves deep into the details of your life. Whilst you can return to fill in some questions at a later date, most questions require answers before you can even create your profile (in contrast to other sites) so it does take a little while to get going on Iranian Personals.
This does mean that many of the profiles on Iranian Personals are well developed with photos, which certainly can't be said for many other sites in this category and certainly does improve the whole experience. Once you’re all set, you can search through other ‘available’ members using the extensive and customizable search function, allowing search results to be filtered using a range of criteria.
Iranian Personals also has a range of great features that help to make the process of dating online a little more exciting. Aside from the traditional features of chat, email and ‘flirting’, users can also take an online personality match test to automatically match their profile with that of other users. Whilst this is not an original service, it is another great way to link users up with each other.
We did like the "ask Dr. G" section in which Iranian Personals users write in to a dating doctor with their dating queries; if you've got doubts or questions, chances are someone else has been through the same!
Iranian Personals is a good site with a range of great features that helps to engage the user and allows them to explore the profiles of those on the site. Unfortunately, there are a few downsides to membership of Iranian Personals. One of these is the old-fashioned and untidy appearance of the site (once you get past the home screen), which some users may find a little disconcerting.
More importantly, though, is the cost of membership to the site. Considering that the same features are available on other sites, and that Iranian Personals is definitely not the busiest site we have come across, the $39.99 a month (at its cheapest) price tag is a little steep. So it's certainly worth exploring a few Muslim Dating websites before making a decision.
