That night, as I did every night as an assistant, I stayed late to clean up the notes and prepare for the next week. I was always the first one in and the last one out, which left little room for socializing, let alone dating.

But mostly, I felt like a failure. In my late 20s, I had left a lucrative career in the tech world to become a writers’ assistant, and I worried that I wasn’t making a strong impression in the room — wasn’t sharing enough or being vulnerable like everyone else. The reality was that I didn’t have anything to share.

I’m not sure what came over me, but before I knew it, I was scrolling through the contacts in my phone, trying to figure out who I wanted to target for this manufactured experience.

And then I saw him, Matt, a guy I met at my previous workplace, a business bro who liked music; a tech nerd with glasses and a bald head. I didn’t initially think he was cute, and I’m not sure what attracted him to me either, considering I dressed modestly and covered my hair with a hijab.

Not to say that hijabi women aren’t attractive. Some even find us more intriguing because of the “mystery” (hijabi fetishists). But at the time, I was deeply insecure and didn’t think anyone would want to be with me. Plus, I was opposed to the whole sex before marriage thing, so I didn’t think that was conducive to dating a non-Muslim.
