From Canada, with love


A Canadian dentist left his heart in Ireland, and he’s going back to find it. Sandy Crocker, a 34-year-old from British Columbia, traveled to Ireland on vacation in July 2011. While in County Clare, Crocker told the Irish Sun, he saw a beautiful girl in a cafe and asked her for directions. He only talked to her for a couple of minutes, but shortly thereafter he found that he couldn’t stop thinking about the pretty lass.
In fact, over a year later, the love struck Canadian is still thinking about her. That’s why Crocker returned to Ireland earlier this month to spend four weeks searching for the mystery woman. “Maybe it’s a shot in the dark but if it is meant to be, if it’s fate, then I might bump into her,” he told the Sun. He describes her as being in her mid to late-twenties, with reddish brown hair and freckles, Irish Central reports. Those are the only physical traits Crocker has mentioned, but his profile on dating website Plenty of Fish described the girl as “gentle, graceful, the kind of girl who would enter a shoe store and leave with brown boots,” according to the National Post. The dating profile appears to have been closed.
