A Little Bit About Me
Asalaam-Alaikum, obviously I am not perfect or like yourself I wouldn't be here (and single lol) so I am definately flawed but fabulous with it (so I think).
I am positive,sociable, family orientated,considerate, non-judgemental but bossy and dominating (if given half the chance ). Don't get me wrong, it doesn't mean I like to have that role in a relationship, I am attracted to a somewhat 'alpha male'.
I like family time at home, curled up on the sofa and stimulating conversation, but equally I love an evening out with friends and good food. Although the past few years i have been busy studying, working and developing myself spiritually I love to travel and train in MMA and kickboxing. Both things I haven't done for a while, hence the chubby cheeks and curves, but a hobby I wish to take back up (maybe with the future hubby??!! Inshallah). The next challenge is to learn Arabic InShAllah.
Perhaps most importantly as a revert to islam,I have alot to learn but I am committed to strengthening my deen and have only recently learned how to pray with conviction and understanding. I am also a mother to a six year old boy who's father has not been present untill recently,so I am his sole carer. His dad is not muslim, my situation does not suit everybody and if that is the case i wish you all the best in your search and completely understand.
It is difficult to sum ones self up without feeling like you are selling yourself (although I have given it a good go) , so feel free to contact me with any questions. Respectfully asking-but please do not contact me without a picture, I won't respond. Not because I am shallow,(because I am in no position to judge anyone) personality means so much more to me but an initial attraction is crucial!
What I Am Looking For
I am lookong for a man that has had life experience and learned a few things along the way, someone who is ready to go forward in a partnership and grow. I am slightly unsure about these sites as I have been on and off them a couple of years and communicated with some 'interesting' people. As a result, I am slightly sceptical and don't wish to waste my (or your) time and energy. I like my man to be decisive as although I am strong willed and confident I am terrible at making decisions, I admire a 'pro-active' man. I have quite 'old school'morals and principles, just standard good manners, respect your elders (typical jamaican I suppose) and would love someone to share those ideals. I love my man to be interested in travel, can have a laugh but knows how to be serious when needed. A strong work ethic is a must and likes to build on his islamic knowledge through lectures and talks (something I would like to do as a famliy inshallah)....not asking (or demanding) much am I??! Lol
On a serious note, these are all wonderful ideals but the reality is a 'list' is just a guide, I know what i want but Allah knows what's best Alhamdulliah.
As a revert from a mixed heritage background (west Indian decent) it would be wonderful to find a man who is an example of a strong muslim brother who would help me show the beauty of our faith to my family InshaAllah . In turn, I am looking forward to embracing my partners family as my own (children too), I appreciate couples need their own time but I do love family around. I am involved in charity work but would be keen to be exposed to more, I feel so blessed (Alhamdulliah) and like to give a little 'Suttin Suttin' back lol!
I would like to add that I am ininterested in relocating to the Middle East or other Islamic country for a few years InshaAllah so please consider this before contacting me- I am not so keen on staying rooted here just yet!
Right, you now know I am a chatter box... so I will end this waffle here. UPDATE- currently living in Qatar
