Welcome to the number one Arab singles and dating community geared towards Arab men and women!

Calling it a “good problem,” Maalouf is waiting for his lawyers to weigh in, but thinks he’d prefer angel to VC financing: “We still decide everything about the site and I am not sure if I want to share it with someone yet.” Et3arraf lays claim to being the first Middle Eastern dating platform, “for Arabs, by Arabs, in Arabic.” “We think we are successful in countries where cultural constraints make it difficult for singles from opposite gender to meet,” say Maalouf and his co-founder Rakan Nimer.
The idea for et3arraf was borne from a heartbreak Maalouf suffered in France.

Fast forward to two dates later and she’s dropping the “M Bomb” on you. She brought up marriage so casually, practically implying it’s a condition. 4) Drama, we live for it, attract it, crave it, create it, and when all else fails, imagine it.
