I am seeking a meaningful, sensual and hopefully long-term relationship with a white lady. You need to be ultra-slim, and hopefully into healthy living and fitness. Age is unimportant, but a bright, contented outlook on life is. I am a white male, 1,89m tall, 74 kg, and try to work out. I live on the KZN South Coast. I am financially secure, have my own home, and run my own small business. I love the outdoor life, the beach, fishing, my pets and cuddling up together with a glass of wine. No chancers please.
If Only, 4170
An attractive 45-year-old woman – a farm girl at heart – is interested to hear about your life and your dreams to determine whether she could see herself as your helpmate.
I’m an outside-the-box, divorced white lady who loves cats, crafts, cooking and charity/junk shops. Seeking a white, open-minded, honest, loving, under-55, generous, health-conscious gentleman, who doesn’t drink or smoke, and who loves cats, crafts and reading. I love aqua-sport and collecting. I’m seeking a long-term, intimate relationship. Must have a landline or be prepared to write letters.
Kind and caring, KZN
I am in my 60s, very pretty, short, independent, love making jams and pickles, and enjoy reading. I love the country life, cooking and long walks. Looking for a farmer who would like a dependable woman. Let’s meet for a coffee and a chat! A Christian please. Still in good condition!
Missing a farmer in KZN, 3245
Lovely arty woman in her early 40s, but still feel 30, looking for a friend in the Hilton, KZN area. I’m independent, have dark hair and a friendly disposition, and am seeking company, coffee and rusks with a male 40 to 50 years old. I do not like pressure. No chancers please. Christian.
I’m a divorced 52-year- old white lady. I’m kind, friendly, honest, faithful and affectionate, and am looking for the same qualities in a man whom I hope to one day marry. I have two amazing grown-up children and two adorable grandchildren. I like having braais with family and friends, coffee with friends, walks, reading and watching TV. I enjoy a peaceful life with occasional weekends away. Please write through the Hitching Post giving me your email address so we can get to know each other.
Looking for Love
I’m a magician, a minor celebrity, and a hopeless romantic (33) looking for a beautiful woman who can bring something great into my life. Newly back in the dating game and still a little rusty, but hopefully you’ll find my awkwardness charming. Must love cats. Please reply with photo.
Karl ahari, 2015
I am a divorced, 63-year-old Christian Caucasian lady, still full of fun and with a flair for life. Everything that is good in life, is good with me. Reading is a great passionate pastime for me and when I get the chance I love dancing as well. Still in the working force and financially independent. I do not smoke but enjoy a social glass of wine. I am looking forward to meeting a serious, mature, well-groomed gentleman between the ages of 60 and 70 with a soft nature and who loves the finer things in life. A photo and contact number would be appreciated.

I am a 49-year-old divorced, white male living in Cape Town. I am looking for a companion who enjoys outdoor life and socialising. She must be independent and preferably without children at home.

I am a single, white, retired and good-looking lady of 69. I am independent, healthy and humorous. I am looking for a soulmate of the same age or maximum 72 years old – a non-smoker, social drinker, animal- and nature-loving, independent white male.
I’m prepared to relocate. Only serious males to respond with serious intentions of settling down to a caring, loving, committed relationship. I love animals, nature, gardening and a quiet, peaceful home life. A farm lifestyle is acceptable. I love to travel and meet people. I’m a non-smoker and have a social drink at dinner. Non-party person and I don’t dance. Would like to settle down with a loving, gentle and kind male partner. Photos welcome with first letter.
