A Little Bit About Me
NO PICTURE ON DISPLAY…I ASSUME YOU SIMPLY SEE ME AS FLESH – NO CONTACT.
A relatively liberal guy who has Islam at the core. Simply put, I hold western and Islamic values. If one conflicts with the other, Islam always trumps - not tradition. On that subject, I read the Quraan (Arabic) and offer Salaah when time permits.
Enjoy being around, family, friends, and adventure or even misadventure – at least we tried! Always in search of that irresistible holiday or long weekend to top up the vitamin Ds (Who doesn’t like a holiday in the sun). Little immature at times and want to be silly with the other half. That said, I am serious should the wind change its course.
Not a spectator; embracing life through a simple lens, never take things for granted. I’m content with the fruits of my basket but would love to fill it with more. My current goal is to set up a charity for orphans in Bangladesh as a start…Insha’Allah!
Enjoy a mixed bag of activities such as swimming; climbing; gym; travelling; reading; music, and chemistry in the kitchen. Happy to settle down with a takeaway on a Friday evening in front of the telly but also enjoy DIY…can fix things honest!
BELOW HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MY PROFILE – MY VIEWS ONLY:
Philosophy on marriage manifest from life experience: A happy marriage never comes readymade in a box like a contract mobile phone – turn it on and off we go. You do get a box, but it’s empty. But don’t despair; it’s meant to be like that. You and the partner simply need to work together to fill it up with what BOTH want from the holy matrimony.
Therefore it’s safe to assume marriage is continuous and work in progress. I can assure you it most defiantly does not come to some finality or peak when you put a ring on the finger. Passing the driving test does not make you a good driver. It only means you’ll survive on the road. A common misnomer is when people often reflect on the early wonder years of marriage. In fact, they played it safe due to the excitement of uncertainty or parked reservations for a more pleasant time that came and went.
It is the excitement and uncertainty that’s important here. You need to feel good and excited about your relationship, not just the other half. It is no wonder you find someone you regard ugly with someone more comfortable on sore eyes! That’s likely because the ugly partner makes them feel good and excited.
Therefore, when you're here looking for each other on here, don't expect the world at once. It won’t come knocking for you either. The word “partner” is taken for granted, but if one cares to look at what it means, you will quickly realise, a partnership is to work together to fill that empty box. So when you do sign that marriage contract, if you’re not keeping to your side of the bargain, you’ll pretty soon learn the contract is bringing you any benefit. I mean isn't that why we sign a contract…the meeting of minds for some common consideration, such as support; companionship; love; safety; backup and emotional reliance. Otherwise why the heck do it! Partners should be competitive with each other but to what extent? In the sense of how beneficial they are to the marriage. By that, I don't mean who brings in the most massive basket home; we’re all grown up enough to know that has little bearing. Instead, both partners are working together to benefit from that blasted contract with courtesy and respect.
Do not make demands unless the matter is outrageous. Humans are awfully good at adapting, and marriage is a primitive concept that should be kept separate from the complexities of the materialist outside world. Make an effort to be stupid, because it is that stupidity, that nurtures love and affection for one another.
When the time comes, you no longer want to put the key through the front door, that is when you should ask the question, is my box filling up with goodies and am I still benefiting from the contract.
I do have a stable job and have been doing it for a while.
What I Am Looking For
I AM SERIOUS ABOUT FINDING A PARTNER TO GROW OLD WITH, SO PLEASE NO IDLERS.
WHO IS SHE: In a nutshell, someone who is, principled, loyal, wants to settle down - have a family and a whole lot of fun! I'm liberal in the sense of equality, views and respect – wouldn't accept anyone who still likes clubbing and comes home smashed!
You must feel good about yourself and accept my compliments and oh yes…bonus points if you like driving and wouldn’t mind driving me around. I’m willing to drive on long journeys LOL!
Open to all cultures and ethnicity except those who are half Muslim…
I have a daughter at university – Answers to FAQs:
• She wants me to get married.
• Willing to be a free babysitter in the future
• Due to her age, I can run my life like a single person and go on holidays or do whatever, no restrictions whatsoever!
• Those who are quite rightly wondering, marriage is sacred, and I strongly believe in that. My previous relationship ended, not because I changed my mind, but due to matters beyond my control, which I'm happy to explain if we meet.
• Contact with my daughter's mother is remote as there is no reason to.
