A Little Bit About Me
Salaam, not too sure what to say here. My parents were both born in East Africa but are of Asian descent. I'm a practicing Muslim, I pray daily and try to go to the mosque a few times per week, still aiming to get all prayers on time though, insha'Allah I'll get there.
I work for a Canadian company in the I.T. industry which does include a bit of out-of-hours work and on-call, but I try not to let it detract from my social life too much.
I love martial arts and sports (except for football), have studied martial arts for a long time, occasionally teach adults, and teach kids every week. An amateur gymnast and free-runner too (I can hold a handstand for nearly a minute, definitely marriage material).
TV Shows:- Stranger Things and comedies like Scrubs/Big **** Theory, and also the odd anime. I do enjoy movies that keep you guessing, The Prestige is probably one of my favourites.
I used to go horse riding and want to get back into that, and also want to go snowboarding again too, someone take me back to the Alps :'(
I do enjoy travelling, plot twist, I've never been to Dubai!
In the time I'm not working or engaged in activity, I enjoy learning about the amazing universe God created for us and also how the human body works. I like listening to Prof. Brian Cox and Dr Rhonda Patrick (okay I'll admit it, I've got a bit of a crush on her ☺️)
What I Am Looking For
I decided to try and write about myself as accurately as I could so that people know what I'm like. I guess it's better to be honest than just pretend to be someone else.
I'd be looking for anyone that would accept me for the type of person that I am, and someone who wouldn't mind that I'm not hugely into Asian culture. Someone who is into the fun side of life, someone who always tries to make the best of a situation like myself. Ideally the person would be interested in sports / adventurous activities, I love to experience different things and would love to share those experiences with someone. As cliché as it sounds, I truly am looking for a best friend who I can share absolutely everything with, and who would share everything with me.
It would be a bonus if that person also liked learning martial arts (because I love teaching it), but maybe I'm asking a bit too much now :P
Finally, I'm looking for someone who is passionate about something that is outside of their daily job.
