Arabium Review
For six years and running, has been the "Arab personals and friends network", matching up hundreds of Arabs with other Arabs as well as with people of every other ethnicity throughout the world. If Arabium were a movie, it would be rated PG, though no one under 18 is admitted nonetheless.  Arabium deigns to provide a friendly and safe online environment where Arabs and others can meet.

Recently, Arabium appeared in an article in Arab American Business Magazine. One element of Arabium that's indicative of the differences between the people joining Arabium and those joining other sites is the inclusion of certain characteristics in the Arabium Matchmaker that aren't a part of the basic search criteria and thumbnail profile summary of other sites, namely: Birthplace (as distinct from Location of Residence), Ethnicity, and Religion.
