Paul, the CEO of the website, says: “In essence we wanted to create a convenient and effective place, where British Asian professionals could meet partners on their own terms.”Paul is clear to state that they are not “interested in the casual dating scene” and instead want to focus on “helping people into relationships.”On Asian Single Solution they offer events such as speed dating and single parties, as well as online profile and messaging services.
Here is some of their member’s thoughts on Ask Bhabi:“It’s not always easy to find a life partner who is compatible with your cultural and religious values.

~ Ask Bhabi is unique in that it offers British Asians a different approach in finding a partner.
The fact it is aimed at just Sikhs alienates a big audience.~ Asian D8 caters for what British Asian online dating has become today and moved with the times.There does need to be an injection of new fresh members though.And only the person that they are matched to sees their profile.”There is a price tag attached to become a member of Ask Bhabi, however everything is 100% confidential.They personally come to meet their members to find out about them and what they want in a partner, before matching them with someone from their portfolio.One Asian D8 employee tells DESIblitz:“We’re not just a dating site, we’re a part of the British Asian community, we’re about celebrating love.”It is a dating website that helps find you a partner for Sikhs, Hindus, Muslims and you can get started for free but there is a cost to message.
