I speak English, Afrikaans and a few other languages. I smoke, have emphysema and enjoy a daily beer. I detest dishonesty, and although I’m not all knowing, believe I’m wise. I am 6ft tall, slender and weigh 75kg. I also have a good sense of humour.

I am an attractive, intelligent widow who is looking for male friends between the ages of 78 to 82. They must be honest, kind, solvent and well-groomed. I have many interests and am very sociable. I am very interested in history and world affairs and enjoy watching good movies, shows, the occasional dinner, but also enjoy relaxing at home. I live in the north of Johannesburg and would like to hear from men who live in Gauteng as it is easier to meet. As I neither smoke nor drink liquor, I will expect the same from those who reply. I have a good sense of humour and have no baggage. I also enjoy having fun and a lot of TLC.
