Our kind of person
Especially on social media there was a lot of criticism of Tjerk. He would have a potato in his throat, feel better than the rest and especially the statement ‘our kind of person’ fell down with viewers in traffic. During this interview we hardly noticed that potato in his throat. Tjerk had a very positive vibe and came across as very open.
“Everyone has a ‘our kind of person’. You hang out with people with the same hobbies or interests. That’s what I meant. Ted and I love to travel, we are entrepreneurs, we play golf and do a lot for charities. I didn’t realize then that OSM could also have a negative connotation.” Tjerk adds: “People are so quick to judge each other without looking and listening carefully. We should all be a little nicer to each other. Respect and appreciate someone else for who they are.”
And what is Tjerk’s kind of person? Tjerk grew up in the Vogelwijk in The Hague, he went and still enjoys going to the beach. Tjerk has played hockey at a high level for years, so his knees are worn out, but he is still sporty. “I hate getting older, I still want to do so much. To keep fit I go to the gym three times a week and I play golf.”
Tjerk is looking for love because he likes a buddy. “Travelling together, eating out together and meeting each other’s friends. I want that.” But now without that love he is not alone. He undertakes a lot with the friends of Sociëteit de Witte (Tjerk is honorary chairman and even has his own table). “Last week I took a two-hour walk in the sculpture garden of the Voorlinden museum. That was really beautiful!’
And Tjerk loves animals. “In South Africa you have beautiful wildlife parks, the mountain gorillas are so strong, very cool”, he says enthusiastically. “Vancouver in America is also a beautiful city, there you have whales and you can ski well.” And so Tjerk has beautiful stories to tell all over the world.
You would almost think: ‘Who wouldn’t want such an interesting man?’ “I got a lot of positive reactions after the program. People recognize me on the street and want to take a picture with me,” he says with a big smile. Tjerk is certainly still open for dates. So are you interested?
and schedule a date. Tjerk likes to eat out, have a drink in the Irish pub or take a nice walk.
