Things They Do For Love
Split women are renowned for their beauty and high opinion about themselves. The latter is probably going to be increased thanks to the story about Keith van der Spuy, 40-year old South African real estate developer and head of South African Water Polo Federation.
Originally on vacation, he prolonged his stay in Split for more than a month in order to find the mysterious dark-haired woman that had captured his heart.
It all began on August 22ndm on a ferryboat that carried van der Spuy from island of Brač to Split. He spotted dark-haired woman reading a book by Ayn Rand. Since van der Spuy is Rand's fan he saw in that woman his perfect soulmate. Unfortunately, van der Spuy's ideal woman was in the presence of a man, presumably a boyfriend. After few threatening looks, van Spuy decided not to interfere.
Once in Split, van der Spuy saw Dark-Haired Woman in Caffe Bar Tribu. She smiled at him and disappeared in the crowd. After that van Spuy spent more than a month desperately trying to see her again in all of Split's bars and discotheques.
Finally, in absolute despair, he contacted Slobodna Dalmacija and issued public appeal for help. "She may be married, she may have children, and if this is the case, I don't want to create any problems for her", he said, "If she tells me to go away, I'll do it. But I just want to see her again." He also claims that, if needed, he would stay in Split for another five years.
