A Little Bit About Me
I was born in Holland but raised in Lahore, Pakistan. I came to England in my teens and have worked between England and Holland. I work as a financial controller.
WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR
The primary quality I am looking for is compassion. In marriage if each partner is not willing to divorce a part of themselves, the marriage can never be a happy one. Nobody goes into a marriage perfect, it’s a learning process. I want somebody with whom I can make a journey together, assisting each other with love and mercy. I want somebody who is mature enough to understand that marriage does not solve everything, that you constantly need to invest and any issues need to be talked over.
From my part you will get someone who is committed and loyal 100%. Someone who is willing to accept their mistakes and make an effort. But we need to both accept each other as we are, the truth of it is that you can only really change yourself, nobody should go into a marriage expecting to change the other. I will need to accept you as you are, and yourself me. I am working towards praying at least one salah in the masjid.
I would like a partner who is compassionate, mature, someone who is working towards praying and is modest in interactions.
My parents live in Amsterdam, my father has always been in business and my mother, a teacher. I have a sister who lives in London, and a brother who lives in the US, both are happily married and settled. Our family has always lived in Lahore, but our grandfather hails from Peshawar. He was a former minister in the government of King Amanullah Khan - of Afghanistan -, a prominent businessman in Karachi/Lahore and somebody close to the Ulama.
I was married for a period of 5 months to a lady from Lahore. I never issued divorce, she said whatever she needed to, in a shariah court to get the marriage annulled without my knowing. A very hurtful episode, I did my utmost to keep her happy but people go into marriage with different expectations.
