I enjoy reading and writing, and can write poetry as well as churn out the odd short story or two. I am hoping to one day publish a novel, as I have several ideas, but that is for the future. I am currently employed as a sales administrator and office assistant while I am trying to save up money to study teaching of English as a second language (a CELTA degree). I am passionate about English and I speak it well. I am wary of Afrikaans, although I can basically speak it, and it sometimes scares me. I know a few Xhosa words and a few German words. My favourite author is Jeffrey Deaver with his Lincoln Rhyme series (The movie "The Bone Collector" was scripted from his book "The Bone Collector"). I enjoy the 'Crime Scene/Mystery/Detective' genre and other favourite authors include Kathy Reichs, Patricia Cornwell, James Patterson. Although I have a 'favourite' genre, I am not opposed to reading out of it, and enjoy the works of Jodi Piccoult and Virginia Andrews as well as Stephen King. My taste in television is somewhat similar to my taste in books. With regards to music, I can play the bass guitar and the piano (although my piano is rusty). My tastes in music vary, as I like songs with good messages/meanings, lyrics that tell a story, decent lyrics (the occasional cuss is ok, but not every second word), a nice beat. I suffer from Depression and mild Bipolar Mood Disorder - but those are under control via medication and have been for a number of years now. I have been misdiagnosed in the past and given the wrong medication, but they are now sure and the medication is doing its job. I used to be a self-harmer, from 2002 - 2012. I have scars on my arms, wrists, shoulders, one or two on my legs and one or two on my feet. The most visible are my arms, and my shoulders when I wear short sleeves. I am overweight (something I am slowly working to change). I wear glasses because my left eye is weaker than my right. I prefer my hair to be long, because short hair makes me look stupid. I hate being in photographs and would rather be behind the camera. While it says 'high school education' I have two years of Foundation Phase teaching under my belt, but due to medical (not psychological) reasons I was unable to complete the degree. I love cats, dogs, dolphins, tigers, horses and winnie the pooh.

Seeking

I am looking for someone who will love me for what I have to give, not what I look like or what was in my past.

I am looking for someone who will love me for what I have to give, not what I look like or what was in my past. Someone who understands that while I suffer from Depression and mild Bipolar, they do not control me and I am not psycho or psychotic. Someone who will look past the scars and the fat and see the heart and the brain. I am looking for the man who can honestly 'sing' me "Little Things" by "One Direction" and mean every word. Someone who wants a future with children and some animals. Someone who won't mind sharing in the cooking and the cleaning etc. Someone who will be a good father and husband - no verbal, emotional or physical abuse of any kind. A kind man who will give the waitor an extra tip above the 10% because the service was very good and the person was friendly. A man who understands the five love languages and is able to accept my offers of each one even if it is not his primary one. Someone who won't leave me for someone prettier, skinnier, etc. Preferably caucasion. Preferably taller than me. Preferably somewhat older than me, although I am not against the person being younger. I'm looking for someone I can love for the rest of my life and who can reciprocate that.
