((First of all, scammers stay away - I can spot you a mile off. Don't: ask me to correspond with you through private email when we can easily chat here if we match; declare your undying love for me when we don't even know each other (lol); give me some sob story about how all your relatives are ill or dead and you need some money for something... . For those unfamiliar with so-called romance scammers, these are some of the tricks they use. They also won't respond at weekends and will often remove their profiles once they quickly get you off the site to communicate)). Now that I've got that off my chest, I suppose it's time to big myself up... I am not a scammer. I am a mathematics teacher (teaching ages 11-18) in an inner-city school. I love learning and education. I am very logical, strict, have good manners, maintain high standards and, I have been told, am very funny at times too; my students tell me that they are scared of me when I tell someone off, but they like me because I am fair to everyone. Of course, I deal with kids for a living (I'm hoping that'll get me some 'potential-hubby' points !). In case you think I'm a complete geek, I do have other interests: I do watch movies, play sports, go for walks in quiet places. I also like to cook and clean (that is not a joke !).
My long term goals
Having a family. Learning more about Islam and sharing this knowledge with someone who I can grow with...
Things I'm good at and enjoy
I enjoy explaining things to people (I suppose that's why I am a teacher !!!). I also enjoy reading, walking and playing sports (football, badminton). I savour the (now rare !) quiet moments in life. I like to clean and cook (yes, that's right !). I enjoy mathematics and learning about scientific things. I also like history and nature documentaries.
The first thing people notice about me
My kind manner and patience.
My family background and values
I have a brother and a sister.
What I love most about Islam
The logicality, self-consistency and simplicity of Islam is something that has always appealed to me. Contemplating the natural world, which brings many signs that point to the unity of nature.
Things I'm looking for in a partner
Here are the stringent criteria for the type of person I'm looking for: 24-42, non-smoker, non-alcohol drinker, non-drug user, non-tattooer - to those who haven't been scared away yet, well done ! The list continues: someone who doesn't get angry quickly, who doesn't judge other people without getting to know them first, who is willing to work together to deal with issues, who can challenge me intellectually (that doesn't mean we must talk about 'intellectual things', just that we should be able to talk through things fairly and rationally), who is willing to learn more about the religion and grow as one. Oh, and someone who makes the effort to smile :) Not too much to ask for, is it ? I hope there are still people reading this ! Ultimately, looking for someone to complete my journey in the harsh realities of life according to the ways of the religion.
