Welcome aboard. Pleasure to have you reading my profile today. Hope your journey doesn't feel too pedestrian and you're not falling asleep towards the end!
It's that time in my life where I feel two families ought to become one.
I am the eldest of 5 siblings who, combining the values of the east, west and the middle east, have all been born and brought up in stunning Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. I have two sisters (one married) and two brothers.
My life generally revolves around family, food, friends, sport, work, tech and travel. A fair bit of TV too. I'm big on travel and always look for an excuse to take a short stroll. Hopefully those short strolls turn into long haul flights exploring Allah's amazing creations with my future partner InshaaAllah.
From a religious point of view, we practice the basics of the five pillars of Islam, including the 5 daily players of course. Without being too extreme, it's important to maintain a balanced lifestyle which I advocate for. And just to clarify, we do not celebrate Milaad.
What else. Favourite bird? Albatross. Figure that one out. Generally very outdoorsy, and don't mind couch nights in either. I also love chocolate. And potatoes.
Be nice if you were into fitness. We can then be workout buddies. When in doubt, deadlift. What's your max?!
Plenty more, but I'd rather answer any questions by engaging in a conversation.
Feel free to pop me a message or a photo swap request. Or both? Your call.
****To answer a couple of questions I've received on a multitude of occasions, and to save your time, yes, I speak a fluent version of British English. And I'm originally from Sylhet, and have been living in Dhaka for the last couple of years. Seven years in the UK prior to that. And, for those that care, I'm from the 'Choudhury' caste/bongsho.
****Apologies for multiple clicks on your profile. More often than not it's purely accidental, or forgetful. NOT stalking!
****Aged 26 or below please. Not an absolute requirement, but a preference. All ethnic backgrounds welcome, as long as you're fluent in English. #Communication
One does not simply have a few words describing their would-be wife. But here's an attempt at a few:
Mutual attraction is important, yes. I should be able to happily stare at you with fondness in the mornings, the evenings, the months, the years, and vice versa. Not in a creepy kind of way of course. At the same time, looks aren't everything. If they were, I wouldn't be here and I'd have married a picture.
I don't want a tailor-made wife. Bit mundane if you ask me. I'd rather be challenged. I'd rather we grow, accept our differences and create our own little 'perfect' world, together.
The most important things I value are respect, loyalty, and honesty. I'm looking for a best friend. A role model to my younger siblings and to others. Someone who lights up my life and the lives of those around her.
Are there any deal-breakers? Yes. Prayers. If your profile reads Salaah as 'sometimes', we probably won't get along. You must be someone who willingly offers the five daily prayers, or AT LEAST trying to. Because you want to, not because you have to.
That's about it. For now.
****Based on my experience so far, I'd prefer to speak to you on the phone and get to know each other rather than exchanging a number of messages which is often very tedious and a tad aimless at times. Having said that, I'm not desperate. I'll take my time so we both develop mutual feelings for one another. If you're one to pick up a spouse after a couple of conversations, I'm not the man you're looking for. But good luck to you!
So, whom do I get to love, honour, defend, protect and cherish for the rest of my life?
Let's fall in love. May the 'battle' commence.
Fi Amaanillah. All the very best :)
