A Little Bit About Me
Yes, I am an unashamed Disney fan. Infact, if Aladdin is not in your top 10 films of all time you may as well save time and stop reading here, because it’s unlikely that we’ll get on if we can’t see eye-to-eye on such a critical issue.
If you’re still reading this, kudos on your excellent taste in movies. Let’s get married tomorrow! OK, maybe not so soon… next week?!
So, this is the section where I have to talk about myself. Well, I have to start off by saying how wonderfully amazing I am – and modest, too.
I jest, obviously. I’m a normal, easy-going guy looking for that one special person to settle down with and share a lifetime full of wonderful adventures, moments and memories. I’m a hopeless romantic at heart, so please know that if you’re the one, you shall be constantly showered with love and affection.
I have little time for big-headed, overly-opinionated people. As we have seen in the past few months/years, there are enough serious issues in the world to worry about, so those that overly-dramatise everyday normal events wind me up no end! Nevertheless, I believe that you should treat others the same way that you wish to be treated, even if they’re not necessarily your favourite person.
I’m very laid back about most things. Life without laughter isn’t worth thinking about, so I am constantly making jokes (often I am the butt of my own jokes). Despite my occasionally childish sense of humour, I am responsible and mature enough to know where to draw the line, and which matters should be treated seriously and which may be joked about.
Religiously, I think I’d currently describe myself as a “fair-weather Muslim”. To clarify, I am currently pretty moderate in my practice of Islam. Although Islam teaches us to be kind, considerate, thoughtful etc (all qualities I believe I possess), I believe these traits are not solely down to me being a Muslim. Within myself, I feel I am a good person (and I think that if you asked anyone that knows me, they’d say the same thing). Whether that makes me a good Muslim or not, I believe is a separate matter.
Currently I work full-time as a Lab Supervisor for a chemical manufacturing company. I am also studying part-time with the Open University.
When I’m not working, I enjoy relaxing with family and friends. Going out to restaurants, trips to the cinema (not a huge Bollywood fan, but I can sit through the occasional SRK movie), poor attempts at playing sport, and quiet nights in front of the TV, are all pretty normal interests of mine. I also love running (sometimes I feel mad enough to go for a run twice a day), partly for fitness reasons, but also because it helps to clear the mind. I feel that a may be on the verge of an early midlife crisis, however, as I have recently started taking flying lessons (as in learning to fly an aeroplane – I haven’t YET managed to develop a functional set of mechanical wings that I strap to myself and take flight).
I haven’t had a chance to see as much as the world as I would like, so a definite future ambition is to travel the world with my partner (I’d love to pack a couple of bags and set off on a long adventure straight after marriage)
Most of all, I want to build a happy, peaceful, loving relationship with my soulmate. Throw a couple of children into the mix too, InshaAllah, as well as a small family dog, maybe?! (If you don’t like dogs, maybe we can reach a compromise on a cat…)
What I Am Looking For
Preferably somebody aged between 21-28 and raised in the UK/an English speaking country. Although I wouldn't automatically rule out anybody who doesn’t fall within those parameters. (I can't afford to be too picky, after all!) Many people tend to say that I look a number of years younger than I actually am - maybe somebody with equally youthful looks would be ideal. :-)
I’m looking for somebody that I could spoil, but doesn’t expect to be spoiled. Somebody that is easy going, enjoys having a laugh, has a positive outlook on life and is open to visiting new places. Somebody that is kind and considerate of others. However, my number one hope is to find a lady with whom I click, with the intention of creating a lifetime of happy memories, insha Allah.
I believe communication and compromise are two key aspects of a happy, successful marriage. I wouldn’t expect my spouse to be a full-time housewife, and I’d be more than happy to share the household duties. For some strange reason, I find washing dishes and ironing really therapeutic, so I’d be happy to take responsibility on those. Cooking is still a bit of a work in progress, though!
Finally, and equally as important as everything else… somebody who could put up with my incessant terrible singing in the car (although I personally think I sound great). Not that I would dare to do so anywhere else, but when alone in my car I magically transform into a rockstar / pop diva / gangsta rapper / boyband heart-throb, dependent on which song is playing at the time. If any ladies on here suffer from the same affliction, I’m sure we could enjoy many a musical road trip together! :D
Think that’s all for now.
Wishing everybody the best of luck with their search!!
P.S. – I am partial to the odd bit of cake. Therefore, anybody that is a keen baker gets a big ol’ tick from me!
