Are you interested?
In their own words

In search of half of my Deen....Still. Optimistic. :)

Heartfelt salaams to you. Im seeking a Good man to lean on & learn from, on a path of honour, service to each other & ultimately to our Selves (Souls). Why Im not uploading a photo: Having read& SEEN so many wonderful profiles of inherently good & great people I feel obliged to explain. Ive never been very publicity seeking e.g. im a print journalist, avoiding both TV & radio. Putting up a photo willy nilly is... difficult. In my conservative environment advertising my single status with my face for all to see- potential husband or no (thousands of men, all over the world! Yikes!) - just makes my stomach do cartwheels.. ! But, I promise - if u 'get' what im saying then maybe u will be interested enough for me to shower u with photos of me!!! :) ( Smile) So I have faith - iman - that the impulse that brought me here will show me that fine man who needs a thoughtful, caring, unpretentious, fun, fairly accomplished & attractive! but shy woman, like me. Masha Allah, jazakAllahukhairan for your kind interest.

Insights
Describe your perfect weekend.
Alone or with The one ( you) ? Alone: great scenery like a park or garden,or the beach, or at home, having cleaned & put all in order, a good book& a delicious salad, capped by a flavour-filled cup of tea & a great film before bed. With The One: more or less the same except for the book. That would be replaced by long, deep conversation undisturbed by the world!
How many kids would you like to have?
Im passed having kids myself but I love them & they seem to love me - so bring on YOUR kids or orphans in need of parents, insha Allah.
How important is someone's physical appearance to you?
A person's style, grooming & attitude are more important to me than just physical looks e.g. cut nails, perfume & cologne... confidence & humility, easy going, kind.... all more important than just being fine to look at !!

Companionship for greater success in this world & the hereafter, insha Allah ta'ala.

Making good on my commitments (like marriage!); enjoying a legacy of good. Insha Allah
