A Little Bit About Me
I achieved one of the biggest goals in my life when I was able to leave my hometown in Virginia to the beautiful San Francisco Bay area to pursue my passions in quantitative finance and technology. I love the Bay area and all that it offers. I enjoy long walks along the local beaches and hiking through the nearby parks.
I am an ambitious, hard working individual, but I make the time to take care of my health. I love going to the gym regularly and cooking healthy meals. But one day, I look forward sharing my culinary delights with that special someone. Could that be you?
Religion is very important to me, but I've still got a long journey ahead of me until I feel more satisfied with myself. Consequently I try to make time to increase my knowledge base of Islam and grow more spiritually. I'm not a bar/club kind of a guy and I certainly don't drink alcohol.
I love my current job as a software engineer, but I have greater aspirations! I hope to make a greater impact on the world through all the gifts that Allah has blessed me with by starting my own company one day!
Two points that I wanted to clarify are how often I perform Salaah and how strict I am about Halaal food. With regards to prayer, I am currently unable to pray 5 times a day due to my full time job. I realize that this is not a good excuse, so it is something I will need to work on. And with regards to Halaal food, the only thing I will eat that is non-Halaal is chicken. This is yet another flaw of mine and is something that I will work to mitigate it over time.
Finally, I want to say thanks to all the women on this site that were honest with me and helped me improve my profile. It takes a lot of courage to be open and honest and I just wanted to say that I really appreciate it a lot!
What I Am Looking For
*******No time-wasters please!*******
A sweet, honest, practicing Muslim girl that can help me grow.
I don't have preference for a specific ethnicity, so if you're interested, let me know! I only require that the girl is able to read/write/speak English fluently, so I can communicate with her.
I realize that people have emotions (including me) and when they get upset they may have the tendency to shout or let their temper get the best of them. This is normal and is perfectly fine with me. What I would prefer to avoid are women that are aggressive and stubborn. More generally, I'd prefer to marry a woman that is able to put aside their ego, control themselves and their temper, and approach quarrels with a problem solving attitude. That is, a woman who is more focused on resolving the quarrels because they realize that mindless fighting does nothing to further the situation. I'm a Computer Scientist (i.e. a problem solver), so I guess that's just how I think. I'm also a pretty mellow guy and don't really like to introduce too much stress into my life, so I'd like to be able to conquer obstacles as painlessly and rapidly as possible.
I would prefer someone that is also independent, ambitious, and is willing to be supportive of my endeavors. And finally, while it is important to me that the girl is independent, it is equally important to me that she would prioritize family over her career.
