A Little Bit About Me
My name is Ali. I work at a major university as a research scholar and lecturer. I am in the final year of completing my Ph.D. I grew up in a typical Pakistani household in Atlanta, GA. I speak both Urdu and English fluently. I am one of four siblings and probably the coolest in the group (but my sister and two brothers would disagree). We are a very close-knit family and I always try to set a good example for my younger brothers and sister. I have a good sense of humor and try to see the funnier side of things. I have a fun loving nature with an open minded approach towards life. I'm the eternal optimist who sees good in everything and everyone.
I consider myself to be fairly adventurous and outgoing. I enjoy outdoor activities like jogging, hiking, basketball, soccer, cricket, and paint-balling, to name a few. I like staying active and busy. I enjoy traveling and trying new foods. I like working out and am committed to staying fit. Running and listening to music are my two favorite hobbies. I do pray my namaz regularly and adhere to my religious obligations. I strive to find a good balance between deen & duniya and eastern & western cultures.
What I Am Looking For
This is an attempt for me to find someone who shares similar values and a similar perspective on life. I am looking for someone who is easy going, adventurous, ambitious, yet light hearted. I am not looking for the perfect person, but the right person. More than anything I value honesty, respect and understanding for one another. We may disagree, but there is always a civilized manner to handle matters. I think it is important to be loving and respectful of each others families as well. Most importantly, we must always strive to be fair, caring, and respectful to each other.
Feel free to message me if you would like to get to know me or would like to introduce yourself. Best wishes to you with this process iA - hope it works out for everyone :)
