The Hitching Post


I’m a 54-year-old woman, almost at peace with myself, seeking a man for old-fashioned letterwrit­ing and go-slow discovery.

Tell me about your favourite author, when you plant tomatillos, your adventures in artichokes and arbitrage, and when you first discovered tantric philosophy and Adho Mukha Vrksasana. Maybe you’ll share with me your plans for the next 10 years? Waiting at my postbox.


Ek is ’n blanke, tweetalige dame en is baie lief vir my Skepper.

Ek het myself goed opgepas. Ek is baie alleen, met geen kind of kraai om my nie. Ek verlang ’n saggeaarde lewensmaat van tussen 69 en 80 jaar wat ’n sterk gees het en ’n vrou sal waardeer. Tyd stap aan, so kom ons probeer.

ALLEEN, 1619

I am a 78-year-old bachelor living in Dalview, Brakpan. I’m looking for a lady to meet and chat with. I don’t drink or smoke. I enjoy nature, music, watching TV, reading, and staying at home as well as visiting friends. I’m also trying to use a computer more efficientl­y. Let’s chat to find out more about each other and what we’re looking for.

JUSTIN, 1543

I’m a lonely widow looking for a caring, honest and loving man of 65 or older. I’m very loving and long to look after someone.


I’m a white, 56-year-old widow who wishes to meet a white, financiall­y secure man aged between 55 and 72. I’m looking for a long-term relationsh­ip. I’m down to earth, and don’t smoke or drink.

I enjoy the outdoors and camping, and am a big animal lover, so the man in my life would need to like dogs. I am willing to relocate for the right man.


I’m looking for late-night heart-tohearts with an authentic, mature Boer and the occasional glass of red wine. I prefer to take things slowly, but if it feels right, it feels right. Please respond in writing.


My quest continues for a cheerful white woman companion with a warm heart, a good sense of humour and a view to a long-term commitment. I’m an honest and secure widower in my 70s.
