Arab Lounge is an online community that aims to help Arab women and Arab men of all nationalities meet potential friends and marriage partners.
It has a presence mainly in the US, Canada, and the UK; although many members of its small active community originate from North Africa, the Middle East or other parts of the globe. Creating a profile is free but payment is required to unlock full messaging, detailed searching and other premium features.
If you're prepared to travel for love, have a sense of adventure, and always wanted to explore beyond your local area, this may be the site for you.
With so few to choose from in comparison with other sites, chances are meeting that special someone may mean reaching out beyond your own location.
Arab Lounge, as its name implies, is a personals site specifically for Arab men and women.
Unlike traditional Muslim/Islamic matrimony sites, Arab Lounge does not stipulate that its service is strictly for those seeking a marital partner - it openly welcomes those looking for friendship as well.
However on reading past member's stories of success (displayed in the testimonials section) there seems to be a trend of people meeting for the first time online and then meeting and marrying within a few short months or less.
While some might just call that extremely effective, I would still suggest exercising caution when it comes to someone that proposes marriage quickly before even having met in person, both due to and because it is worth taking time when choosing someone to share a lifetime with.
Unlike Buzz Arab (read more), Arab Lounge is a pay for premium services site.Paid memberships, known as Platinum memberships, come with a slew of benefits that allow for easier searches and communication within the site.Members can email freely, use the text and video chat, search for others using “Personality Match,” use the advanced search, and interact with members that only have free accounts.Monthly accounts are .99 a month with discounts available for longer subscriptions. Free members may send limited messages to anyone, but they can only read the messages sent to them by Platinum members, and they may not participate in the video/text chat.Also, while they can take the “Personality Match” test to see what type of personality they have, they may not search for other members by using it as a compatibility factor.When signing up you will be asked some basic questions that will show up on your profile including ancestry (Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Syria or Saudi Arabia), age, location, height, weight, eye color, hair color, physique, and religion.
