Persian and dating
The name of this region was adopted by a nomadic ancient Iranian people who migrated to the region in the west and southwest of Lake Urmia, eventually becoming known as "the Persians".The ninth-century BC Neo-Assyrian inscription of the Black Obelisk of Shalmaneser III, found at Nimrud, gives it in the Late Assyrian forms Parsua and Parsumaš as a region and a people located in the Zagros Mountains, the latter likely having migrated southward and transferred the name of the region with them to what would become Persis (Persia proper, i.e., modern-day Fars), and that is considered to be the earliest attestation to the Persian people.Until the Parthian era, the Iranian identity had an ethnic, linguistic, and religious value. The Parthian monarchy was succeeded by the Persian dynasty of the Sasanians in 224 AD.By the time of the Sasanian Empire, a national culture that was fully aware of being Iranian took shape, partially motivated by restoration and revival of the wisdom of "the old sages" (dānāgān pēšēnīgān).Iranian Personals offers informative profiles so it is, in essence, less of a hook-up site and geared more towards Iranian singles looking for something more than just *ahem* a bootie call.
The Iranian hegemony was reestablished after over eight centuries of foreign rule within the region by the emergence of the Safavid Empire in the 16th century, after which a number of modern Iranian monarchies emerged.
The search filters are solid, there’s real-time chat and profiles are generally rich with information about the member.
While it is free to browse, the site is not free of charge to send chat messages — this is good news for more ‘mature’ Iranian singles looking for something more than just a hook-up, as it helps weed out non-serious members.
As expected, the majority of members you will find on are in cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Orange County (ok, not a city), San Diego, The DC, Virginia and Maryland area (aka DC Metro), Toronto, Vancouver, London, and other cities that have a sizeable population of Iranian singles.
If looking to date, and possible fall in love and marry, an Iranian man or woman, please consider Iranian Personals as it is the largest and most successful dating site for Persian singles living abroad.
