A Little Bit About Me
Thanks for checking out my profile.
Here’s a little flavour of my family background:
My family are Pakistani however they were born and brought up in Kenya before moving to the UK. Both my parents were working professionals now retired and semi retired. We are a Punjabi family however my parents are fluent in Urdu and can speak some Hindi and a tiny bit of Swahili also.
I would describe my family as a liberal and modern, forward thinking Muslim family.
Ok, so if you have liked what you have read so far then here’s a little about me:
I’m born and bred in UK, and am based in the greater London area. I work in the finance industry within the asset management arm of an investment bank and am well settled in my career.
I would describe myself as easy going, always up for trying out new experiences and generally a modern Muslim with liberal views on religion and politics. I try and keep a good balance between religion and my everyday life and try not to muddy the waters between culture and religion.
In terms of my interests, I am a big tv/film geek. I love watching films and binge watching tv shows…I love anything car related and I would definitely describe myself as a petrol head. I like to go down to the race track from time to time and race around until my wallet runs out of money for petrol or my car fails, whichever comes first lol.….I go to the theatre regularly and particularly enjoying watching murder mystery plays. The odd musical I can stomach from time to time also lol….I love any activity that makes my adrenaline rush, for example I have done Sky Diving, Flyboarding, Zip lining, Human Catapulting and parasailing to name a few things and am always on the look out for the next rush…I like to keep fit and try to go to the gym regularly while at the same time trying to eat healthy (although the latter is easier said than done as I love going out to eat and trying new places)…I do enjoy going to museums/exhibitions from time to time depending on the topic e.g. I went to the British Library and saw a great exhibitions about the sunken cities of Egypt which was great…I have recently discovered reading. I have to admit, I was never a fan of reading but low and behold now I love it so I guess I would say I am an amateur book worm in the making. Who would have thought.
I don't believe chivalry is dead and I always like to act like a gent :o)
What I Am Looking For
In terms of what I am looking for in a potential partner, I guess a hybrid between the elegance of Coco Chanel, Beauty of Audrey Hepburn and brains of Amal Clooney lol.
But on a serious note I am looking to get to know someone who in a nutshell is a well rounded, independent, liberal, self confident woman who would also describe themselves as a modern Muslim. Ideally someone who does not drink or smoke (not judging, just my personal preference).
I would like if my potential spouse was head strong and a believer in equality in a relationship as I am a strong believer in equality in every form.
Ideally I would like someone based in the UK . (Open to all backgrounds).
I feel it’s the right time in my life where I can move on to the next chapter and experience new things and I’m hoping to find someone who feels a similar way. :o)
Thanks for reading and good luck with your search.
