In His Own Words

About Him

Loyal as a labrador. Good sense of humour. Feet on the ground but head in the clouds and a romantic at heart. Versatile, bold and uncomplicated, I enjoy interesting conversation. I have achieved my goal of retiring by the age of 40: I now spend most of my time running, swimming, reading, buying second-hand books, cooking and travelling. My biggest challenge in life is developing the perfect chocolate cake recipe!!

I run seven kilometres a day, I don't eat salt and I have a long-standing passion for imported chocolate (to be specific: Lindt and Côte d'Or). I love summer, and spend it barefoot and in as few clothes as possible. I am compulsive about books and enjoy a good movie (especially the old classics). All I really need to know in life I learnt from The Golden Girls.

UPDATE: The plan is to drive from South Africa to Europe. Seeking someone to fill the passenger seat.

I hoped to do the East coast route, but it looks like the West coast may be more feasible due to the Middle East situation. I already have a reliable landcruiser (80 series) and most of the kit, maps, etc. I hope to hear from guys interested in sharing (even part of) the trip. You need to be open to adventure, perhaps some technical aptitude or a few words in Arabic, but mostly just good at conversation and willing to put up with wry humour, rooibos tea and a playlist of house music and opera. Budget already covered for vehicle/fuel costs, so you only need to pay your way for visas, etc. Prudes need not apply. Adventure guaranteed!!

About His Ideal Match

Smart with your own personal sense of direction and life philosophy. Work hard but not married to your career. Urbane but able to rough it in the bush, at least for a weekend. Enjoy life and sharing it. Monogamous in a relationship, but curious and insatiable in life. Know where the best places are to buy imported chocolate. The ability to make interesting conversation is a definite plus. Good with your hands and not afraid to wear a speedo if the occasion arises.... A sense of humour will trump everything!

Plato's "Symposium" is an easy read, and should be considered a minimum requirement: theosofie.be/A_PDF/Plato_Complete_Works. pdf

Updated ideal, 2017: Say just one original thing. Or failing that, give an interpretation at least of something original. Do not bore me with generic gossip dressed up as an opinion. Or the mindless repetition of received clichés. Have a vocabulary that you have obtained yourself over years of research and stimulate me with a mind that understands the difference between selection and combination. I have no problem with phatic communication to start or end or bridge moments in which ideas do not overlap spontaneously. But use gentleness and grace and beauty to pave the way for your ideas and mine. And so we will embrace and find each other. There, beyond the dawn.
