I don't recommend Tinder.

Don't force it, dude. Just let it happen naturally, I think.


Soulmates are found naturally, everything from God is nature itself.
All you have to do is to realize it, admit it and thank him for it.

How are those two quotes not in alignment? No god needed. It takes initiative, and exposing yourself. You know this, surely.

Without "work" or "effort" done by the person, it will be impossible and not fair to get any results.
The person must work, and God would see his/her work; if he/she deserves to get rewarded the reward will come from God.

That's not how wives occur.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

This sounds an awful lot like according to Islam our free will and choice is severely compromised.

Pre-divorce, my relationship with my ex-wife was very, very far from tranquil. Post- divorce, my life has never been more tranquil.

That you don't know these kind of things makes me think that you are very young, or an incel.

In either case, grow the fuck up.

Look dude, I'm an amateur in romance, but even with my many years getting shitfaced in bars, even some shy asshole like me knows you have to at least put yourself into meatspace.

Go fish.

No. No no no. If you've been a very good boy, and allah approves, you'll find a wife in a bag on your doorstep.

Wives, for their part, love this arrangement. Allah screens out all the assholes who haven't been a very good boy.

You know how cavemen bonk females over the head and drag them by the hair back to their caves? That's more romantic than what Islamic relationships entail.

Actually no, in a nutshell:

-God created everything, including the ability to choose
-He gave humans the ability to choose freely.

So, humans do make their own minds. But if God didn't give them that kind of freedom; there won't be a choice to make in the first place.
