Good Morning Sunshine,

How was your night ? I Hope you slept well ? I have just received a call followed by a letter of appointment from the ministry of Housing and development in South Africa informing me that i have been approved and appointed to develop and construct a government school and hospital in Milnerton area of Cape Town South Africa.

This contract is worth $17.4 million usd, of which includes the cost to design and build the said project.The contract award ceremony will take place at the Cape Town International Convention Center (CTICC) on Wednesday morning the 5th of October 2016 . This means i have to travel to South Africa tonight to arrive there tomorrow evening as it is about a 21 hour flight from here to South Africa in order to make it there on time for the award ceremony. This news came as a big shock to me as i was not expecting to win the contract nor to have to travel this urgent.

I already have an appointment with my bank this morning regarding some investments,Once i am done with my bank,i will have to go shop for some of the items that i will need for this trip. I will also need some winter clothes as they seems to be in Spring over there at the moment.I also need to go get all the tools that i will be working with over there ready to be shipped over to South Africa.

I also need a good suit for the contract award ceremony which will be attended by some important personnel from the government, politicians, NGO's and other Government bodies on Wednesday morning.

I am really happy to be awarded this contract as i have struggled in getting contract and tenders for my company since i relocated here.This is the first time that i will be working on a project in South Africa.
With this latest development,I am very sorry to inform you that i may not be able to see you in person before my departure as i have to be in South Africa ASAP to sign the acceptance letter and also to meet up with the minister of housing and development.

I would like us to keep in touch by email and over the phone just as we have done for the past couple of days till i return. I will be traveling with my laptop so i will send you mail on a daily basis. I will buy a South African sim card when i arrive there and we will be able to talk on the phone as well.I will be staying for two weeks to sign the acceptance letter and also to kick start the project before returning.

I am deeply sorry about my sudden departure,I promise to make it up to you when i get back.I will arrive back home in the morning of the 19th of October, If i am not jet legged, We should be able to meet that very day or the day after.I will keep you posted about that. I promise to make it up to you.

Please text or call me when you get this email. I hope you are not mad at me?
Talk to you soon.

Big Hug.

Good Evening Sweetheart,

I hope you are having a great day?

I woke up at 6:00AM this morning to prepare for the busy day ahead and also to get to site on time before the rest of the materials and all the workers that we have hired arrive.I got to site around 7:26 AM to take deliveries of the rest of the materials which arrived around 8:32AM. We finally got the project started "Ground Breaking" around 9:46AM this morning after hiring a total of 48 workers..

We were surprised by the visit of minister of Housing and development along with the mayor of Cape town Mrs Helen Ziller. It was really a very exciting day as we got a lot of work done today and they were really amazed at the rate we are going already on day one.

I am so blessed to have you in my life. I want to share everything with you, from the smallest little things to the biggest.You have been so kind an open with me and that has really made me happy.I want to learn what you like and need so I can try to make you the happiest woman alive. I want to look into your eyes and get lost there. I want to feel the warmth of your touch and the strength of your hugs. I want to see that smile and know I may have had a part in putting it there. I may be putting the cart ahead of the horse here, but the feelings you have awaken in me and the joy and happiness I feel are too real to ignore.

You are a blessing and I am so glad you have chosen to share your world with me. I promise to never let you down, and to be here in anyway I can to support you and take good care of you.

Thank you so much for your support and email filled with words of encouragements, Hearing your lovely voice makes my day complete. I am so happy you are a part of my life and now have a reason to look forward to tomorrow.

I mailed you a post card as well as a greeting card just to say thank you. The tracking number is y0019002983 you can track it at www.ups.com it should be delivered to you on Wednesday.

Letter 4

Thank you so much for all your beautiful words.

I am a person who does not like offending other people. So if I ever say anything that you find offensive you'll have to say so unless it's something you can let slide. I like to have fun. Usually not at someone else's expense though. I love to laugh so hard my face hurts. I feel it's great for a persons overall well being. I've been depressed, so I know the tremendous ill effects on the body that can have. So I look at each day with a positive frame of mind.I don't have a lot of friends. Acquaintances yes, but friends no.My lover is my best friend, That way there would be no secrets.
I believe smiling is important because you never know that day if someone is in need of that simple gesture. I design both in Denver and a couple of other states. But i am trying to focus on Denver only for now.

I can't believe we are making good progress with each other.When my Dad passed away I saw my Mom just fade. She would never go out unless I dragged her. I often wondered why she did that. Now I understand why. I believe that brought on her Dementia quicker than if she would have kept her mind busy. I knew I would have to push myself forward whether I liked it or not. It was so hard and sometimes I just wanted to hide in my closet and close the door and not come out for a month after the lost of my late wife. So I pushed on and now here I am, ready for the next big adventure in life.

So I guess what I am searching for is a "best friend". I want to connect with someone that has the similar interests and aspirations. Life lessons helped me discover what I need in a relationship. Activities and common interests are huge in finding that soul mate. If you aren't willing to spend time together then why would you be with that person, how one relates with another individual is how a special bond develops. If you can't cry together as well as laugh together then there really isn't a bond.

I will also admit that i am a church person, Although I believe more in fate, and believe that the church has it's purposes, such as teaching society rules of right and wrong. I also believe that some people need to have that belief to survive and to understand themselves, as well as the belief that there is life after death.

It is hard for a woman to date today because there are so many who give us all a bad name and women find it hard to trust us. That will not be an issue with me. I am not like any of the other man. I am very unique in my thinking and out look on life. I am an out of the box thinker. I imagine you are as well. I always see the good side of everything and have a hard time seeing the bad in anything.

I would love to hear your voice on the phone so we can put a voice behind our email. Please feel free to email me your phone number as well as the best time to phone you today so that we can finally but a voice behind our email and hopefully we can also set a day to meet in person soon.

Have a great day further.

Are you Kelly Or Lexi ?

I am so very excited to hear from you today, I have been smiling since i read your email, I have a really good feeling about you.
Let me try to sum up my life in a paragraph. I met the love of my life at 22 and it was love at first sight.We worked hard, bought a house and had a son together.We were very happily married for 29 years.Fast forward to August 2013 i received a phone call that she was involved in a car accident and pronounced dead at the scene. My world as I knew it was turned upside down. There were many nights I cried myself to sleep due to a broken heart and empty bed.My whole world shattered, eight months went by and i began to accept what had happened and i made a promise to myself to be the best i could possibly be to my son.

Here is a little more about me, I lived in Holland with my parents until i turned 20,my dad retired from active service then and we moved back to Birmingham UK.I lived in Birmingham UK with my parents for many years and also attended college there.After college, i got a job and moved back to Rotterdam Holland where i got married , settled down and lived for many years.I lived in Holland till 2 Years ago when i relocated here, after the lost of my late wife.Chris, my son, lives and studies in the UK, he visits home often. I was raised as the only child because my mom had complications after she had me.I grew up with all the love and affection from both parent.Not that i was spoiled in any way or over pampered or anything,I remember having my dad spank me really hard whenever i got really naughty, lol. I do miss him alot because we were very close, everything i am today, i learnt from him.He passed away 12 yrs ago, My mum still lives in the UK as she needed to be closer to her family, she will turn 82 in November.She is still very active for her age.

I love to listen to music such as blues,rock,good metal and classic music as well as jazz. I like to sit back and watch a good movie when i want to relax, mostly on weekends.I play Golf most times, I also like playing tennis.I love the beach or anything associated with water. I don't have any pet at the moment because there would be no one to look after them when i am away.

If you had asked me last year if I would be on an online dating site I would have said “No way” !!!!! Needless to say I am thrilled now that I am conversing with you.

I am looking for someone that is intelligent and funny, enjoys life, understand that a job is only that...a job. I also want "maturity, love, companionship, friendship, honesty"...but also someone that cares a lot for other human beings and animals. Someone with a big heart. I am a free spirit and extremely independent.I enjoy movies, great conversations, relaxing at home, just being happy. I live to meet my own expectations and not to please anybody else but me.I am a very thankful person. Love showing my appreciation. I am grateful for every single thing that makes my life what is it today.

I would love to fall in love again and make my partner proud. There's nothing more sexy than being in love.

You are a very beautiful woman and any man would be lucky to have you as a partner.I would really like to get to know you much better through this medium till we make time out to meet each other. So feel free to write me back.Hoping to hear from you really soon.
Bless you.
