A Little Bit About Me
I know most guys who are divorced tend not to have their kids living with them. Well. My story is different!
My daughter is 16 mashallah and does live with me. I wouldn't have have it any other way. She is quite goofy and geeky, a girly girl (mostly!) and total anime nut.
I wanted to put that out there first. A lot of people will say that being a parent doesn't define them and that's fine. For me it is a central part of my life which greatly influences and impacts my life choices. I believe Islam teaches balance and not extremes.
Describing myself, the following comes to mind:
Coffee, cinema, walks, gym, salaah, integrity, truthfulness, romance, companionship.
Specifically in terms of deen. Get to know me. Decide for yourself how religious I am. Sorry but only a moron boasts about their iman and Islam. The Sahaba RA absolutely did not.
What I Am Looking For
I think my partner has to also be a parent. I want that to be a common factor.
I have one daughter. If I could find someone else with a teenage daughter(s) that would be awesome!
Someone with a son/sons would be tricky due to the mahram issue between the children. If anyone wants to suggest a work around, please feel free!
I don't have a long list of criteria. Someone who prays, is honest, and active.
My life is not traditional. I am not traditional. I am not looking to marry because I need someone to cook and clean for me. I believe in partnering up and working side by side to build a bright and beautiful future for ourselves and our kids.
Oh Allah, we can't do this with you, so please help us. Ameen.
