Letter 5

Good Evening Victoria, It was so nice talking to you over the phone this evening, Wow you have such a lovely voice that i just cant get over.I am really glad we talked on the phone, now i have to meet you.
I feel we have alot in common and would love to continue this and see where we go from here.No one is made perfect but we could only give it a trial. Though it is right for us to learn from our mistakes. Which makes us resisting and having hard to trust anyone this days. A Relationship is all about TRUST, SINCERITY and HONESTY, all this Paramount fact must exist in a relationship before anything can work out of it. I'm a man of my word and will always stand by my words. I'm a caring and loving man, Open minded and Upfront in every aspect of a relationship.I am a man with so much love and honesty "I am not praising myself".I am a happy man who loves to satisfy my love ones with everything i have, I am a one woman man, i grow my own rose and i am very romantic, i believe in the happiness of my woman, i really would like to get to know you better and i want you to be free in sharing anything with me as i will do just the same.I think you are gradually coming to be the end to my search and will like us to start by been best friends and see where this will lead to as only God knows. Ever Since i viewed your profile online, i feel this great impulsion on me and since then, I have been very glued to your profile as it stands out among others in a way i can't possibly explain.I have a very good feeling that you might be the end to my search because you simply possess all the qualities of what i am looking for in a woman and the more i keep reading from you, the more i feel it is coming to be true and i pray and hope it does. I really hope you are for real? because i will like us to meet soon as chemistry is equally important in any great and healthy relationship.I want us to give this a try and will be hoping and praying it take us both to where we want to be. I want to love again,because i have so much love to give, cared for and also care for my partner in return, I want to grow old with someone who really cares about me just as i will about her.Lastly i want you to know that when i enter into any relationship, I enter 100 percent in respective of what my partner will bring to the table and not 50/50 percent.
Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity and privilege,i promise never to disappoint you nor to be dishonest to you in any way as we proceed.
Have a good evening and would be looking forward to your email.
God bless you.

There is so much I want to tell you, a lot has been running through my head lately, but i am having trouble putting my thoughts into words so you will have to bare with me through this.Nothing can be compared to this feeling of filling up somebody's life. The excitement which tortures me while waiting for you to send me a email, Your sweet email keeps me awake even when i am exhausted to death, because i wouldn't want to miss a thing.You brighten my day and give me the strength to carry on,Life has been really though for me since i lost my wife of 29 years.I fought through life everyday to be a better person for my son,myself and my partner to be as well,Ever since we meet online,you have revealed the deepest emotions and feelings i've kept buried inside of me for so long. Feelings i don't even suspect to be there anymore. But above all, you showed interest on me, compassion and honesty.I never knew i would be this happy again in my life but you know what?
it is the greatest feeling in the world to be content. I would want to say, I am very, very content with you and you alone, You have a great heart and i can tell that you are a great person too. I am a very strong Christian and my guts and feelings are always right especially when it comes to situations like this.I do really want to thank you for this wonderful opportunity. This means so much to me. At a point in my life i thought i was going to grow old alone but you have now giving me new hope. I promise not to disappoint you and i really cant wait to meet with you so we can go pass this stage of emailing back and forth. I am a very comfortable man who has passion for building beautiful dream homes for high end clients. I am a true success at what i do for a living and my work is recognize world wide even as far as Asia.All i want is a woman with a good heart that i can grow old with and that is coming to be true right now.Let me stop here for now as i could write the whole day.

This news came as a big shock to me as i was not expecting to win the contract nor to be so urgent. I will have to go shop for some of the items that i will need for the trip as well as a few clothes as i have just checked the weather there and they seems to be be in Spring.I also need to go get all the tools that i will be working with ready to be shipped to South Africa ASAP.

We were also entertained by top African musicians, School children and many more. I was over the moon and honored to be part of this.The School and hospital will be dedicated to the late Nelson Mandela who died in December 2013. It is a great fulfillment to actually go pass this School and Hospital one day with You, my Son and grand children and actually point it out to them that i designed and build this Government School and Hospital. Its a great achievement and i am extremely delighted to be part of this.
We have a professional photographer who took all the pictures, It was also captured on DVD . They took my hotel address and phone number and told me they will deliver my copies in a couple of days and should be able to send you some copies to see what went down.

I am so sorry that I could not see you before I leave but will do that when I return.I wish you were here with me today to witness this great achievement. This place is so gorgeous and the people here are very kind and cultured.
I want you to know that the feelings i have developed for you is undying. It is strong and enduring and will stand the test of time.
