My background is Iranian (Persian). So I was born and raised in Iran-the former Persia. I came to Australia about 4 years ago to conduct my academic research and am doing my PhD now-almost gone through half. I am very passionate about it. Education in science has had lots of positive impacts on my personal life and my attitude towards it. I would prefer to have a long term relationship; however I think that a relationship initially requires a short period of time during which the two people can get to know each other better and then decide. WEEKENDS: I do outdoor activities like running, bush-walking, gym and etc. On weekends, I like to cook Persian food, drink wine/beer, watch movies go out for a BBQ/day trips and have a dinner at a nice restaurant. Sometimes studying German in order to not forget it or playing Guitar/keyboard. I speak Persian (farsi english and German. I want to have a family with the right person (so no rush! ) with the possibility of having children but not necessarily-Two people can also be enough to form a great family! I am absolutely nonreligious and believe in " good thoughts, good words and good deeds" . I like travelling and get to travel alot (thankfully! ). I am loyal, honest, independent, affectionate, caring and easy-going and try to maintain a conversation and smile alot : ) If the notes above seem really interesting to you then it's nice to talk further.
