With the help of an online survey and private parties and events, Badr plans to set up safe, successful dates with pre-screened, compatible singles.
The approach, the opposite of “the exposure and insincerity” people find in online dating sites, harkens back to a time when people valued face-to-face meetings over swiping through photos and profiles on a phone.

Go to G’s for a boozy brunch in the Jordaan or in the Pijp.
The vibe is super laid back and the french toast with bacon is to die for! Café van Mechelen: Do you and your date both like special beers?
The first date isn’t necessarily the kick-off to a whirlwind romance, though it can be.Q: Is Modern Black Book locally focused, or is it a regional/national site? Modern Blackbook costs .00/month, and clients are asked to sign up for 6 month packages.Badr: We are locally focused on Asheville and a 45 mile radius and cater to singles of all ages. The 6 month time frame helps facilitate our mantra “it’s not magic, it’s matchmaking”- meaning no overnight results–it’s a slow burn kind of process. Badr: I don’t think Modern Blackbook appeals to an age demographic, as much as it does a personality type.I think it’s what people mean when they say that they have “found their calling.” It married all of my social interests in emotional intelligence and intuition to my desire to be a bona fide do-gooder and love-advocate.When I moved to Asheville to open Scout Boutique last October, I figured that my professional matchmaking days were behind me.
From things to do to the best restaurants with the tastiest snacks. De Bajes: Street art restaurant De Bajes is the new hotspot on Rembrandtplein where you’ll definitely want to take your date.
