There are a lot of single Coptic men and women in Western society that are hamstrung by a compulsion to observe community tradition and divine instruction.

Cairo, Egypt – When one graduate of Egypt’s prestigious American University of Cairo (AUC) recently became engaged, she told her parents in southern Egypt that she met her fiancée through mutual friends.

The truth: they met after both swiping right on a dating app.

“It’s everything I hate about [Egyptian] society condensed in an app.” She asked Vocativ not to use her name because she “manage[s] a lot of young boys at work.” Still, after first trying out Tinder in Canada, she’s continued to use it in Cairo on-again off-again to expand her dating circle, with some successful romances along the way. “But in Egypt it’s used for many things.” Traditionally in Egypt sexual relations outside of marriage are taboo — in fact, any dating that happens is generally short and geared towards getting engaged.

Sexual health education, meanwhile, is practically non-existent, and nearly all Egyptian women have experienced sexual harassment.

This is in contrast to Western culture that is based on individualism; that is, a value-based system built on the ethics of autonomy.
