Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm very inquisitive, sociable, feisty, athletic, sometimes silly
and somewhat complex. But always full of passion and it shows in
whatever I do...my life, my work, the people I care about deeply. I
spend a fair amount of time thinking about all sorts of things.
Mostly about how to make life simpler and more sensible in one way
I relish good company, Cabernet from Stellenbosch and a squash game
that makes me sweat. But there's nothing I love better than
spending quality time with one compatible partner.
Prefer people who don't take material and money concerns too
seriously. There are better things to be serious about.
I could tell you my version of who I am and what I’m like, but in
the end none of that matters much, really. It boils down to that
mysterious connection between two people. Shared interests and
values are important, but you need that intangible “magic” to wrap
I have learnt that love is simple but people are complex, so try
not to overly intellectualise the concept of a relationship...that
what is said, is oblique to what is felt. Physical chemistry is an
important and necessary part of any relationship, but what elevates
everything to another level is when emotional and intellectual
attraction are added to the mix. When the heart, the brain and the
senses are firing in unison, you truly are drinking from the trough
I'm looking for a man who cares about his emotional and physical
well being. I find an intuitive and creative mind very sexy. A man
who is not afraid to accept and express love; who's happy,
compassionate, worldly and inquisitive. A wonderful father to your
children ( if you have any) and if not, an understanding that I
have a young son whom I adore and am raising. And if you love Fox
News, you won't pass muster. City men take note, I hang my hat on
the UES when sans my son.
So that's just a little about me, but write to me and I will come
up with lots more. Thanks for reading and good luck to you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Juggling workdom, mumdom, athleticdom and looking for Cupidom.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Keeping it simple, getting to the nitty-gritty without too much
fuss, kissing, breakfast for two after making my partner "beg for
mercy" on the squash court...I do play a mean squash game.

An avid reader. Mostly non-fiction. Too many I love and too many to
list but two that caused thought provoking questions are The
Elephant Whisperer and The Bang Bang Club. Both non-fiction and
Prefer foreign films but enjoy the classics and mainstream if well
made. Love good theatre, some modern opera.
Beethoven to Vanella Ornoni to Hip Hop, my son's favourite genre.
Have a plebeian food palate (don't know why since my mum loved
sheep's brain and tongue). The list goes on...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Besides the obvious...
My mean getaway car - my dad was a racing car driver
My Brussels Griffon - he's a non-mean hound
Grey Matter - inside and out
Being in love
My squash racquet - it's really mean
Apparently - the word mean
I spend a lot of time thinking about
