Here at Arab Lounge, we want all of our Arab singles to find the loves of their lives through our network of singles. That said, we know that it's not always easy to attract the man or woman you're looking for through an online dating site. Luckily, there are plenty of tools on Arab Lounge that you can use to improve your chances at finding the Arab man or woman of your dreams. From your pictures to your written profile, there are a number of ways you can make yourself more appealing to a potential match. Here are a few of our favorite tips that can help you find more Arab dating opportunities with other members of our site!

While it can be tempting to use as many photos as possible in your profile, remember that quantity isn't always the same as quality. When other Arab singles look at your photos, you want them to see you at your best. That means you should be sure to only provide a few pictures that you really like – not a lot of mediocre photos that could turn away potential suitors.
Generally speaking, just a handful of great photos are better than a large number of so-so pictures. However, it's also important that these pictures are an honest depiction of who you are. If you look like one person on Arab Lounge and then another in person, that can be very disappointing to a date once you meet them. Also, consider adding one photo that shows you engaged in a favorite activity of yours – this can be a great conversation starter for you and the Arab singles you date!
You may have a good idea if you're looking for some casual Arab dating, or if you're hoping to start a serious relationship that will end in an Arab marriage – but our other members won't be able to tell the difference unless you make it clear in your profile. Make sure that important factors like your goals for dating show up somewhere in your profile.
This can go for several other important details as well. Do you have children (or do you want them)? Is the religious or ethnic background of your match important to you? At Arab Lounge, we have a wide variety of diverse Arab singles, so if you're looking for a very specific type of match, you'll need to be clear about that. Be sure that you're honest and open about your age and occupation as well.
If you want your match to get to know you, you'll need to provide some details about your interests rather than speaking entirely in generalities. For instance, don't just say that you enjoy movies: talk about what actors, directors, or specific films you love. Don't just say you like going out to eat; tell other Arab singles exactly what kinds of food you enjoy. Any one of these details could be a conversation starter on Arab Lounge, and could help you and another member decide exactly what to do on a first date!
We know how competitive the Arab dating scene can be, so we understand that some of our members might want to bend the truth about themselves in their profiles. But in the long run, it doesn't help you to lie, because your date will eventually figure this out – and they probably won't appreciate it.
If there' something you'd rather other Arab singles didn't find out about until you get to know them better, that's fine: but don't lie about it. Similarly, if there's something about yourself you're afraid dates won't like (an aspect of your appearance, a hobby, your job or income, or anything else), don't lie to make yourself look better. Instead, just don't focus on that in your profile. Accentuate your positives, and you'll find yourself with plenty of Arab dating opportunities!
As we've said before, Arab Lounge features a huge number of Arab singles of many different backgrounds. We understand that for many of our members, there are going to be questions of religion, beliefs, or nationality that cannot be compromised in your search for Arab dating opportunities.
But while it's important to remember what's a "must have" in your dates, it can be a big mistake to decide you aren't into a particular Arab man or woman just because of a minor flaw or quirk you don't like. Maybe someone likes music that you can't stand, or they hate your favorite book. Perhaps you're afraid they're too tall for you, or you wish they made a little more money.
All of those might make someone seem less than perfect in your eyes – but they probably shouldn't be deal breakers. Even with millions of Arab singles out there, you're still very unlikely to meet someone who perfect to you (or at least not what you'd consider perfect today). After all, we are all human! Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good: be willing to give matches who seem interesting and share your values a chance, and we're sure you'll find plenty of matches here at Arab Lounge.
