Its going quite great... spending no less than 6 hours daily on Skype speaking about absolutely nothing but its fun.
Ilyas you were asking where I find the time... well.. i've stopped going to the gym, cooking, getting a full 8 hours rest. Forgotten about Uni work, alhamdullilah there are no deadlines, and my flatmates don't see me anymore.
Its quite strange I think how all this came about, I now believe setting goals is actually quite powerful. On 10/10/10 I decided am getting married no matter what and the marriage date will be 11/11/11. As soon as I had that mindset prospects appeared out of nowhere, even singlemuslim.com responses suddenly spiked. Within 2 weeks I've seen her and never been more sure about anyone. I've always thought i'll have to compromise one day and settle for less than perfect, but with her I cant find a single flaw.
Subhannallah I used to make dua for a specific type of wife i was looking for about 4-5 years ago before I believed It was possible to even get a women like that, slowly I came to believe it was possible and today it has happened. I've confirmed with her/(family) and they are ready when ever am ready. I've spoken to my parents for the soonest time possible and they've agreed on May-July 2011.
Now the scary thing is, having met her my standards have been raised to her level, so if for any reason this doesn't go through, I dont think I can settle for less anymore. What makes it even more scary is that if I loose her, the chances of finding some that special are quite slim. And its not just love speaking... There actually is something about her (which I'd rather not mention) that statistically speaking would be very difficult to find anywhere on earth. So yeah she is quite special
I wanna give a shout-out to halfmydeen and all its members. They've been a source of great advice, warnings and most importantly great listeners. Please make dua for me that everything goes fine inshallah.
