A Little Bit About Me
Salaam all, so I've been on here forever, I'm not fussy, it's just that I can't seem to find the right person. Please no abuse. If you message me and I don't think we suit, I will just block you. It's nothing personal. Please feel free to do the same. If I happen to exchange a few messages with you and then it peters out on either of our parts, please just block, clearly it's not going anywhere. If we get to exchange numbers and you see me on here, please don't flip out on me. Yes, I am going to still log on to here. If that bothers you, save the abuse and just block me. Thanks. Okay, that last bit sounds a tad mean! What I mean is if after we exchange numbers and start chatting away properly, properly, then obviously I will exercise my manners and not log on here; I'd expect the same respect from you too! I think that's most things cleared up!!
I should get the whole 'have been married before' thing out of the way first. I was 23 at the time and it was overseas and 14 weeks later it was over. If you're able to get past that, by all means feel free to read on. Just a little warning though...it's pretty lengthy!
Okay, the story so far...eldest of five, living at home. Teacher by trade. Ha! What a fantastic tale hey?? (:S)
To describe myself I would say that I'm independent; family orientated; ambitious; thoughtful; caring; kind; will have an opinion- but not opinionated (there is a difference); and understanding.
I enjoy socialising and having a good laugh; love listening to music and seeing good music played; also like to take time out- a lot!
Have hardly done any travelling really- went to Euro Disney with school when I was in Year 7- but don't think that counts. ("P) O.k. I'm slightly fibbing there- I've been to...WALES!! Again that doesn't count- that was on a school trip as a teacher, and having to keep my eye on a group of year 8s for a week!! Other travels include going to Bangladesh; Paris (properly this time) and Rome- but that's it- which is why I'd like to get some more travelling done- perhaps with you?? (So sorry- that end comment was just so painfully cheesy!)
Things I've done once before and fancy doing again include: rock climbing; abseiling; caving; canoeing and hiking.
Things I'd like to do at some point: hang gliding; paragliding; snorkelling; diving and...learning to ride a bike- no not a motorbike but a bicycle!! Shocking, I know- I was never taught as a kid!!
Things I'm not good with: roller coaster rides. Things I NEVER fancy doing: bungee jumping- just something about having no control/free falling- is stomach churning.
Also I'm a typical gal who likes fashion; accessories; shoes; handbags- I just like pretty things!
What I Am Looking For
Would be nice if I could find a decent person; someone British born and bred like me; close-ish to my age/in the same age bracket (raspberries to not being able to tick the 18-25 box on forms any more!!)
Erm, no one with children from previous relationships- don't think I'm ready for that kind of thing- hope I haven't offended anyone- apologies if I have!
A good Muslim and a good guy.
O- and I'd love someone taller than me too, say 5'7" or above (hey I know I'm not exactly tall myself; but take note that Kylie and I are the same height- so can't knock it- plus, give me a pair of heels and I look a formidable woman- well sort of)
Someone who can hold a good conversation and has good command of the English language (not being a snob-I have to say that being an English Teacher- come on...be fair)
Just to point out and in the name of equality gents- I've atleast put one picture up for public view- so I propose you put atleast one picture up too, you know, to go with what we read in your profile- it'd be nice. Don't know what you guys worry about- it's not like you'll wake up the next morning to find your picture plastered across a bus shelter with the caption "Missing: last seen on Single Muslim looking for a bride. Ner na, ner na, nerrr-na!!" written across the bottom! So, forget all this cloak-and-dagger business, be brave and please put your picture up! ("p)
Before I forget, if you're not satisfied with the main picture on my profile and want to see more then I reckon it's polite to send a message before sending a private gallery request. You know it makes sense! (",)
