  1. I am the Nile – the longest river in the world.


    At 4145 miles from your furthest extremity to the Mediterranean Sea, you outdo the Amazon to become the world’s longest river. The piranhas hate you.

    Beneath you lies an underground river with six times your volume. You kept this remarkably quiet for several thousand years. In fact, you’re full of mystery; your source wasn’t discovered until 1862. You’re also full of water. And crocodiles. And nuclear pharaoh machines that run on light and can see through time.

  2. I, too, am MOUNT EVEREST

    As Mount Everest (or Sagarmatha, or Qomolangma Feng) you are the highest mountain above sea level in the world, at 8848 metres or 29,028 feet. That’s pretty damn big. To put that into perspective, you are twenty-seven and a half times taller than the best the entirety of the Netherlands can manage. Of course, you’re not actually the biggest mountain on Earth. Mauna Kea is 31,796 feet, or the equivalent of Everest with the Scottish mountain Suilven perched happily on top. And you’re not the farthest from the equator – that’s Mt. Chimborazo in Ecuador. And Olympus Mons on Mars knocks all of the above into a cocked hat at around 80,000 feet. But when you’re named after someone with a beard as impressive as that of Sir George Everest, who cares about the competition?

  3. About me… I am 28 years age, mature but young at heart, working in National Airlines in PIA Karachi Airport Pakistan as a Admin Supervisor. Parents have started organizing visits for marriage all, which I have no problem with, but finding the right match with a good family background is not easy and being on Marriage, I hope, will aid in the process. Parents are very open minded and as long as they are involved at some stage they are more than be happy for me to look for someone. Describing ones self is not easy but id say I m a very respectful, caring/sharing and understanding person with a cool temperament. I guess I m a pretty straightforward, uncomplicated guy and quite moderate in my ways. I have learnt a great deal and respect from family/traditional values, which has made me a very much-balanced individual. Quite modern with strong traditional traits is the best way to sum me up. I am looking for a partner who comes from an equally loving and respectable family. Someone who is smart in appearance, educated and aged between 24 and 40. I am moderately religious and live my life within Islamic boundaries so like me, would want someone with a good mix of east and west. Best regards Rehan Yaqoob
