Admittedly, I am not into the online dating scene, but thought I thought I would try my luck on here :) I am compassionate, family-oriented, loyal, interested in building a meaningful relationship-- and looking for someone similar. I approach life with levity: very placid, light-hearted, and easy-going. At the same time, I’m both passionate and earnest towards the things that are important to me. I have a witty, observational, and sometimes dark sense of humour and I often find that life's funniest moments are often found in everyday shenanigans. I am Canadian-born and raised with Egyptian roots, and have a very strong connection to my heritage-- hence the profile name ;) I am an avid reader and a culinary adventurer (aka a big time foodie). I am intellectually curious, enjoy deep, edifying conversations, and am looking for someone with a stimulating mind. Without sounding too cliché, I'd love to find someone I can connect with emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually (which has proven to be much more challenging than I had imagined!). I am attracted to driven, down to earth, and dedicated men, who have a playful sense of humour, appreciate positivity over cynicism, and are mindful of the transience of life. I admire a man who has strong morals and values, and one who carries himself with integrity and respect. I'll keep the rest of my profile short as that would take away the mystery of getting to know one another :) p.s. I love to cook-- bonus if you do too!
