A Little Bit About Me
I am most probably human. I've been on quite a journey since embracing Islam over a decade ago. This has given me so much extra strength and so many more mental tools to get through life's challenges. I've learned a lot and still try to keep an open mind. I am confident that ultimately truth will win out and goodness prevail.
I am professionally employed in a job that provides well mashaAllah. I like it, but it is still hard work at times. I like silly jokes... a lot! Life is better with a smile and it's sadaqah too. It doesn't need to be taken seriously all the time.
I am observant and take my deen seriously, however I try to avoid extremes and avoid judgement in all but the most egregious cases. The Shariah is the middle path after all.
My interests are wide ranging and I'm continually reading, watching documentaries, etc. I'm very much interested in different cultures, languages and foods. I enjoy cooking.
Other interests include Mixed Martial Arts, philosophy and comparative religion, geopolitics, the outdoors, camping, bush walking, movies, computer games, gardening, the environment and sustainability.
What I Am Looking For
There are plenty of challenges in this life. I don't want them at home and want to find someone who feels the same way. Someone who will work with me cooperatively as we each support one another in life and learning.
I'm looking for someone that shares at least a few of my interests to build common ground and finds joy in simple things.
I enjoy nice things, but they're an optional extra in my view we need to be grateful for every little thing we have. I am not a fan of an overly materialistic attitude or status seeking.
A solid nerdy or intellectual streak,a long with a kind heart and plenty of silliness would be ideal.
Intimacy and closeness in both the emotional and physical senses are very important to me. Being able to be vulnerable and still comfortable with someone softens the heart and makes for contentedness.
