My profile

About me

By day I'm a regular guy and by night a superhero … How tiring is that?!

Just joking! I'm a regular guy all the time, good job, close to my family, just bought my own flat with a cat. Actually, my cat thinks I'm a hero because I saved her from the street. I'm a talkative person and I believe communication is the most important thing in a relationship.

Likes and dislikes

I love pizza if it's Italian, wine if it's white, and football if it's the World Cup. I read a lot, especially true life stories, but most of my books live on my phone.

Hobbies

I love to travel and I'm always planning my next trip. I prefer an active holiday like hiking, skiing or watersports and I get bored lying on the beach. I post lots of photos on Instagram as I'm a good photographer but I'd really love to share the holiday with someone. Maybe you'll take the photos on the next trip. wink

Tips

1. Write about your good points, not your bad points.

2. Don’t include every single thing. Choose a few points and focus on them.

3. Don’t add your contact details (e.g. address, phone number). You could get unwanted messages.

4. Check your spelling and punctuation before you post.

5. You can use punctuation and emojis when you’re joking, e.g. ?! and wink.

Hello
I'm Fatima you probably heard my name before, it's a common name between Arabic and Muslim communities, anyway I am an Arabic language teacher since 2019 I like my job even if it's the hardest job in the world, especially teaching kids. At the same time, I like to develop myself in the education field, I got my master's degree last month in curriculum, instruction, and assessments that are really helped me to become a good teacher, and that was one of my dreams, and still have many dreams to achieve, one of them is to be fluent in the English language, but I really face a lot of difficulties especially when I have to teach the Arabic language in the morning and be English language student at noon.
well I feel I am talked a lot about my career so let me tell you about some of my hobbies, I like to cook, I used to cook for my family a long time ago, and my siblings always ask me for new recipes, actually it gives me a chance to experience and explore new tastes. Therefore, I always watch cooking programs on Netflix. Also, I love to watch movies, especially those with a true story my favorite movie is (me before you) I think I have watched it seven or eight times maybe more.

It depends on users. It may be beneficial for someone to find someone new and compatible. But not everyone finds love on dating apps.

By day I'm an average university applicant but after a night of series and movies I turn into a raccoon! And what a complicated thing it is to get rid of the costume.

I really like to play with my pet and draw at night even if I don't see anything. My mom says that one day I will go blind. I also read a lot, but I don't have money for physical books and I have to download them on my cell phone, it causes me a big headache.

I would love to travel around the world and take lots of pictures, although I'm not good at it. But I would still like to travel with someone and get to know.
