‘Muslims don’t date, we marry’

Published

on

The BBC’s weekly The Boss series profiles different business leaders from around the world. This week we speak to Shahzad Younas, founder and chief executive of Muslim dating website and app Muzmatch.

When Shahzad Younas took to the stage he was very nervous.

It was two years ago, and the then 32-year-old British entrepreneur was in San Francisco pitching London-based Muzmatch to a group of high profile potential investors.

He opened his address to the room by saying: “Muslims don’t date, we marry.”

Shahzad and his business partner Ryan Brodie were there because they had entered a global competition to win backing from prestigious Silicon Valley investment firm Y Combinator.

This US company offers financial and practical support to a number of new start-ups per year. More than 13,000 applied at the same time as Muzmatch, and it was one of 800 whose founders were invited to pitch in person.

As Shahzad continued his speech, the investors were soon bursting into laughter at how frank he was. Muzmatch was quickly given $1.75m (£1.3m), one of 100 start-ups that got backing in 2017.

Today the fast-growing company says it currently has more than one million registered users across the UK and some 90 other countries.

Rewind to 2013 and it wasn’t a group of investors that Shahzad had to convince, it was himself.

Back then he was working for a bank in the City of London. He enjoyed his job, but at the same time he increasingly realised that there was a gap in the market for a decent dating app aimed at Muslims who were looking for a partner from within their religious community.

“At the time there were either these really basic websites for Muslims, or big dating apps that didn’t quite get our culture,” says Shahzad, who was born and bred in Manchester.

“In the Muslim community a lot of us did, and still do, rely on matchmakers [to find a wife or husband]. These are ‘aunties’ in the community who know families, and who would match up a son with another family’s daughter.”

His idea for Muzmatch was that it would be a digital matchmaker app for Muslims who wanted to find someone to marry.

In 2014, Shahzad decided that he had to make a go of the app and quit his job.

“I’d wake up at 6am every morning and go to bed at about one or 2am,” he says. ” I was working from my bedroom at home, and it was intense. I had to learn how to build an app from scratch.

“But I knew I had to make it work. The opportunity was big enough – there are 1.8 billion Muslims around the world, and clearly no one was serving them.”

Shahzad did a soft launch of the app in 2015, and his marketing methods were somewhat different to the bigger dating apps.

“I’d go to big mosques after Friday prayers and hand out cards for the app,” he says. “Then I’d go to any kind of family Muslim event that I knew was on, and I would literally stick them under windscreens.”

Watching a business grow on your own can be hard, and at the beginning Shahzad said he found it excruciating.

“I remember the first couple of months I would constantly look at Google Analytics, which would show me in real time how many people were on the app,” he says. 

One time he says he checked, and there were just 10 people on Muzmatch.

But over time user numbers grew into thousands, thanks mainly to positive word of mouth. Soon people started telling Shahzad how they had met their wives or husbands.

“Once I heard the first success story it made it feel real,” he says. “And it cemented in me that the app was going somewhere.” (more…)

HEALTH TIPS: 4 reasons your vagina smells a little funky

Published

on

Ever get that not-so-clean feeling? We’ve all been there: You head to the bathroom post-workout and bam, things don’t really smell so fresh down there.

But is that really even have a problem? Your vagina isn’t supposed to smell like roses, and a lot of women think that there’s something wrong with them when there isn’t, says Lauren Streicher, MD, medical director of the Northwestern Medicine Center for Sexual Health and Menopause and author of Sex Rx: Hormones, Health, and Your Best Sex Ever.

You’re leaking pee

“When you talk about vaginal odour, the first thing you need to figure out is whether it is, in fact, coming from the vagina, or is it really a genital odour?” says Dr Streicher. (Remember, your vagina is located inside of your body, while everything surrounding it is your vulva or your external genitals.) For a lot of women, it’s incontinence.” In many cases, women have just a small amount of leakage that they’re not really aware of—they only notice the odour.

– Freshen up: Since the root of this issue is external (urine hanging around your genitals or underwear), showering and changing clothes should do the trick. But do tell your doc if you often have trouble making it to the bathroom on time. There are meds and other interventions that can help.

You’re sweaty down there

Feeling swampy? Don’t freak out, dealing with a sweaty crotch is actually pretty normal. Most of your body is covered in eccrine glands, which produces a watery sweat that doesn’t always lead to a funky smelly. But other parts of your body—especially your armpits and groin—are home to apocrine glands, which release more of a stinky sweat, Suzanne Friedler, MD, of Advanced Dermatology in New York City

Wearing panty liners and exercising frequently can also lock in odour since heat gets trapped in. Some people also deal with excessive sweating, a condition known as hyperhidrosis. It’s more common around your underarms, hands, and feet, but can also affect your crotch area.

– Freshen up: Ditch the panty liners, look for underwear made of breathable cotton, and try to change immediately after your workout (Certain brands even have sweat-wicking properties, like these from Hanes.) Trimming your pubic hair also helps since it can trap odour, especially during the warmer months.

You’re harbouring a missing tampon

It sounds crazy, but Dr Streicher says that lots of women insert a tampon and forget to take it out. Maybe you’re at the end of your period but put one in “just in case,” and then it slips your mind because your time of the month was ending. You could have mindlessly inserted a new tampon without taking the first one out. Assuming it’s lingered in there for a while, the smell will be really strong, says Dr Streicher.

– Freshen up: You guessed it—you need to get the tampon out. Your doctor can easily remove it, or you can take a crack at it yourself: Lie flat on your back and put two fingers deep into your vagina. “Women can probably get it out themselves, but most of the time they don’t even know it’s there,” says Dr Streicher.

The bacteria in your vagina are out of whack

“The most common cause of vaginal odour is an imbalance in the normal flora in the vagina,” which causes a fishy odour, irritation, and thin to no vaginal discharge, says Dr Streicher. This unpleasant bacteria can take over anytime, but it’s most apt to happen after your period or sex because both blood and semen can throw off your natural pH.

What about yeast infections? Those might cause a slight yeasty scent, but the odour is rarely the main complaint. Itching and thick, white discharge are more common.

– Freshen up: If it turns into a full-blown infection (known as bacterial vaginosis), you’ll need antibiotics. But in many cases, you can catch the problem before it calls for meds. Dr Streicher tells patients to try RepHresh Vaginal Gel, which works to correct the pH balance in your vagina. You should notice a major improvement after two treatments, she says. If you don’t, it’s time to call your doctor (and probably get a prescription).

How to get rid of vaginal odour

Remember, your vagina doesn’t need to smell like Febreze. When it comes to keeping odour at bay, you don’t have to do much. Beyond the reasons listed above, your vagina actually does a really good job of balancing out your pH and bacteria all on its own.

However, cleansing with a gentle soap around your vulva during your typical shower won’t hurt. Go for one that’s gentle, hypoallergenic, and unscented. Just avoid washing directly in your vagina (and douching is a major no-no) since this can actually disrupt your pH and mess with your natural bacteria, increasing your risk of infection.

As for those special feminine hygiene washes? You don’t need them, says Dr Streicher. “They won’t help with infections, and for regular cleansing plain soap and water is fine.”

CHECK OUT THE FULL BAPE X DC COMICS 2019 COLLABORATION

Published

on

BAPE teams up with past collaborator DC Comics for another capsule collection, rejoining after 12 years to bring the superheroes back to streetwear again.

While the initial collab focused on Justice League faves Batman, Superman, The Flash and Wonder Woman, only the former two made it into this round of apparel. Standouts are surprisingly Batman’s portion of the drop, especially the “pointed ear” zip-up hoodie (seen above) that pays homage to Adam West’s OG grey suit from the 1961 Batman TV series. Other hoodie options utilize a split design with BAPE’s signature 1ST CAMO, available in red, black and blue. Superman sees a smaller part of the set, with hoodies (sans the horns) in solid grey, black and a 1ST CAMO/blue combo. Coaches jackets and T-shirts make up the rest of the offering, and it definitely looks like Gotham City takes the crown overall.

Cop the BAPE x DC Comics collection beginning Saturday (March 30) at all BAPE locations and online. See the full set below:
