Asian Dating 25 Jul 2007
Difficulties of finding a spouse when you are a British Asian.

Increasing numbers of young Asians are struggling to find a partner. Alongside their white peers, many of them have put education and careers first and left marriage until later.

Yasmeen Khan is looking for love – so much so that she recently signed up to an online dating service.
