A Little Bit About Me
Assalamualaikum! I'm a 29-year-old working as a newly qualified teacher of English at Upton Court Grammar School (the top grammar school in England). Recently, I've been promoted to a new role as Head of House and also work as a Assessment Specialist with a exam board. I am also a EPQ Supervisor working with Yr 12/13 students. I am in the process of beginning and building up on starting tuition lessons. I also trained as a makeup artist and beauty therapist and hope to begin my own 'work from home' business alongside ny treaching. I am also writing my first novel and write poetry daily too. It is therapeutic and I enjoy it. Being a teacher is sheer hard work but I enjoy it. Yes, I enjoy planning and teaching lessons and I even enjoy marking assessments, classbooks, writing/oracy books, spelling books much to the confusion of my colleagues. I see life as a rollercoaster and sure, we can moan, complain and scream that life is unfair but it gets tiring after a while (trust me I've been through it all) so alternatively, we can sit back and enjoy the ride. I have been through a lot of hardships but I'm stronger now because I was weak in the past. I am brave because I was frightened in the past. I am now wiser because I was foolish in the past.
Initially, I used to be quiet but have developed a strong sense of confidence and sometimes talk non-stop. No matter what I go through, I see life and the world with a positive outlook. I am down-to-earth, love a good banter with friends and family, romantic, calm, open-minded, non-judgemental, family orientated, creative and willing to do what it takes to be a wife to the best of my ability. I am a divorced mother at the moment and I'm looking for someone who is willing to look beyond my past and who can find it in his heart to be a father to my seven-year old daughter (she's never seen her biological dad and yearns to be properly adored by one). I'm not focused on looks or money, just someone lovely and down-to-earth with a warm personality. I'm not focused on the caste system much to the dismay of local Asian aunties. Most importantly, I have my own mindset and the freedom and independence and courage to voice my own opinion.
I also love travelling and would love to continue to do so with the right person. I am quite passionate about education and would want to aim to study for a Master's degree once I purchase my own property (which is the main goal on my agenda) so any potential partner who is cool with that, that'd be a bonus. I hope to even do a PhD too so any potential partner who is willing to support me in that...that would be amazing. My hobbies are photography, reading (I like romance, historical, law, medical, occasionally some horror types), painting, going out to cinemas, theatres, museums and eating out and doing hair & makeup and mehndi or watching superhero or horror movies (with horror I'm more on the edge of my seat..lol) with a bowl of popcorn and a Pepsi. I love classic Bollywood and Marvel movies. I like going swimming on Friday evenings and learning self-defence in Karate during the weekend. I would love to learn to play the piano one day but they're incredibly expensive so once the more important things are ticked off, I'd definitely learn how to play. I am also interested in ice-skating (thanks to my daughter). I also enjoy bouncing and playing football from time to time and support Arsenal in the Premier League. In the future, I'd like to give archery, boxing and athletic sports a try as well. I'm learning new languages such as Spanish and German and already can speak a bit of French. I would describe myself as a trailblazer and would rather defy social norms and values and pursue my dreams and hopes for the future. I encourage my daughter to do the same. I know a single mother with a child may sound quite off putting to others but she is a lovely and independent child. She likes to do Karate with me and does ballet once a week (yes, I do make sure she is appropriately dressed) and is learning how to speak Spanish fluently. She is a bright child and is above average and works hard and has her own aspirations that she works hard to. She does simple tasks such as homework, personal hygiene, washing dishes, tidying up all by herself and I'm quite firm but loving with her and I would expect the same from a potential partner to be a father - firm but loving and caring all the same.
Thanks for reading my profile if you've made it this far and good luck with your search! :)
What I Am Looking For
Marriage is a two-way effort and needs teamwork so somebody who is a good team player in a relationship would be good. Someone with whom I can establish a excellent level of understanding. If we can understand one another, we'll learn to trust one another. Once we trust each other, we'll learn to respect one another. Once we respect one another, we'll eventually fall in love. Someone who can be my best friend as well as a loving and supportive husband and who can love me and my daughter unconditionally. Someone with whom I can connect with emotionally, spiritually and mentally and be my shoulder to cry on if such a occasion arises. Someone who acknowledges that marriage is all about true love but full of challenges, hurdles and obstacles nevertheless and is able to go through all that with me hoping we'd come through stronger and better than ever. Someone who isn't afraid to fight for me. If you can't fight for me, you're not right for me. Someone who wouldn't mind surprising me now and then with a bit of romance (yes I'm a hopeless romantic myself). Even a heart warming smile or knowing my other half is deeply concerned for my safety or a bunch of flowers or affectionate terms of endearment is romance for me. Someone who is striving to become a better Muslim like me and wouldn't mind praying together with his wife. Nothing more romantic than that. Someone with whom I can openly talk to and who would listen and is able to accept me with my wounds and scars and someone who would make sure I would not have to heal again after a horrific past. Someone who isn't afraid to stand by his woman and support her when she needs it.
