In His Own Words

About Him

I am a 1950's (1952) baby boomer who was once well known and stable in a country he hardly recognizes anymore. I am intelligent, educated and career succesful and I built a family, made a succesful, recognized high profile and lucrative career in Canada. I was once a handsome, strong, loving Dad with huge potential, property and wealth. Then along came divorce and the family law industry struck me down and I lost everything. And I mean everything. I was wiped out financially to the point I am living in fear now while waiting to find a SA job again. I returned as a result of the "Homecoming Revolution (Look it up) and if I were to die here in the shadow of "MY" Mountain I would be happy to be back in my birth country to do so.

And so, well, here I am, lonely and scared, broke and trying to start again. I am nervous about doing this dating thing. This is new scary territory for me and I fear I will be forced on to the street alone and vulnerable. I love the outdoors, the mountain, the sea. I love to camp and hike. I love to drive in the country, read non fiction books and I love my baby boomer music, [removed] I am happy to be back but scared at this new reality. I am protective, respectful, honest and trustworthy, and I think women are the most fascinating, magnificent, resiliant, complex, strongest creatures on Gods Earth. I love them all.

But (added in 2012) it turned out to be a hopeless task and South Africa simply did not want me. I spent a year in a hopeless search for peace and security and when thwt did not come to me (I could write volumes) I just returned to Canada. What a disaster that all was. I had hoped for so much but South Africa the way people like to think of it and describe it just does not exist. it is far away from ideal in reality.

About His Ideal Match

I seek a good looking, curvaceous/slim, trustworthy, trusting, intelligent, woman who loves to be appreciated, kept warm and held tightly. She should like to be served breakfast in bed, tea and biscuits, taken to dinner and loved and respected. She should expect her man to be a traditional protective one who opens the car and other doors for her and holds hands, makes sure she is safe and treats her with respect. She should be interested in what I think and do but also be one who loves to walk around and shop, read and use the computer. She likes reading, rugby, documentary TV, the outdoors, braaing, hiking, the mountain, the sea and she is interested in world politics and history. I would like a match who likes to entertain, cook, (and braai) meet new friends, takes long walks along the Beachfront and who likes sunsets and campfires.
