Down to earth, honest, and a good mix of tradition with modern, quirky, good humor. I am pretty active with my work, and at home. Work as a doc, work out, and looking for someone with a fun and energetic personality, educated, responsible, and is family-oriented. I plan on continuing my practice of medicine after marriage, although will go part time or reduced hours with kids.
I am more of a mix of American and desi values. I do what makes practical sense, rather than follow desi traditions blindly if that makes sense. I have an active lifestyle - I do go to the gym, I do like to travel when I have the $, and I'm pretty balanced when it comes to finances. Marriage is a partnership, and a team sport, I believe. I'm active in the community, I like to stay involved in the desi and muslim community. I'm not into clubbing, nor over-partying. I have a small group of friends that I keep close, and I'm very close to my family, so most of my free time is spent with people I really value. I have spent time away from home, practically 10 years, while I pursued my training. I'm pretty independent.
-mentally balanced guy - you laugh, but you have no idea. Mental health should be intact. No depression, no bipolar, schizophrenic, autistic, developmental disorder patients.
-yes I am a doctor, it is OK if you are not a doctor
-bachelors degree minimum
-please no one with a womanizing history
-preferably, simple and honest type of personality. Show-offs are turn-offs.
-strength of character
-guy should be serious about marriage - no I will not talk to you for 12 months to see if we're "in love". Figure out if the girl is compatible, figure out if you enjoy her company and get your family involved
-the family should be nice and compatible and respectful
-progressive in ideas regarding gender roles. I cook, but I expect help if we're both working. Dads should play with their kids. Pushing a girl around because you can = not hot. Whatever happened to people just taking care of each other? I make you dinner, and maybe sometimes, you make me a cup of hot cocoa and we watch a movie together?
-I am ok with living with in-laws (yep, true story), but there needs to be some privacy and mutual respect. So my parents satisfaction with the rishta will play a role, as will your parents satisfaction, since we're all gonna be one big happy family (right?)
-DO NOT GIVE UP ON A RELATIONSHIP - if you are a quitter, and you think you may abandon a girl for small reasons (and I've heard them all from this website - she embarasses me in public by wearing shalwaar kameez, she would challenge my authority, she demanded me to add her name to my bank account why the heck am I gonna give my non-working wife any money?, my wife refused to give me money to give to my deadbeat brother, I got caught gossipping about my wife with my amma and my wife got angry, . Oh my lord, the horror stories. One guy can't remember why he is divorced, simply states "uhhh...." in response to being asked about the marriage.
Bottom line: marriage is team work, and compromise, and both have to be willing to put in a little to get a lot out of it. I'm willing to put in my sweat and toil, are you?
Oh and please no cheap shots like standing up a girl after saying you will meet her, or "can i see a picture of you standing up, bending over, posing all sultry" and stuff like that. That's just rude. Amazing what courtesy muslims show each other these days.
Other simple rules of thumb:
Do not post pics in your bunyaan
Do not post pics posing sultry on your bed. Not becoming for a man.
Do not try to pick up a girl like you're at a bar. I'm muslim, please respect me as one (I don't know why I'm saying that because muslims dont respect other muslims these days).
You should not have more oil in your hair in your pictures than I do when I precondition my hair with oil.
Try to wear a suit in your picture. Makes you look educated and a reasonable man.
Do not wear your hat backwards, you don't look "dope" ; I'm not showing my father that sort of a picture.
Not interested in green card shaadis. Too much secondary gain there - marriages like that often end in divorce (surprise surprise) after you get your green card.
