The first ad below was posted just before Wife #7, Sandra, kicked him out of her home. Keep in mind at that time she knew nothing of him being a serial bigamist and thought he had only been married once. She was looking forward to retiring with Ed Hicks to their property in the Bahamas. Imagine her shock and hurt when she read the ad below!:
Age: 53 years old,
Man seeking Woman,
I am a US citizen who is looking for a mate to share a lovely piece of an island with. I own a lovely lot (WITH MY WIFE!) overlooking the aqua blue Caribbean on Eleuthera Island and am looking for the special someone to share my dream. (NOT) I love the ocean and warm clear waters of the Bahama Islands. Visiting exploring and living the life I have dreamed of. Want to learn to scuba dive, windsurf, kitesurf or fish virgin waters? Come with me and explore your dream and make mine come true by having you with me. I am retiring from my Federal Government position. If you assist ($$$), we can soon sail on my boat. Are you the one I am looking for? Do you love warm weather, clear warm water and breathtaking beaches? You have a chance to acquire the best tan and enjoy a live of leisure with me. Take a chance and write me. If we don't make a love connection we could become friends and that makes getting in touch with each other a win - win situation.

My perception of an ideal relationship: One that is calm, loving and giving, especially giving. I am in love with love. Us having a life together but will allow each other to have a life of their own. By saying this I mean you need to have things you like to do which does not require anyone else. Have interests which you can participate in by yourself and can share with a loved one. (please read the "dump" letter he sent wife #6 about her having her own interests!)
What I've learned from my past relationships: You have to give of yourself without reserve (to ME). If you love someone and that someone loves you than you have a chance to make a life with each other.
More ads found after Wife #7 put his butt on the curb. Wall to wall Lies! Compare his answers to the Ad above! He just can't decide WHO he is! He cannot even keep his age straight. By the way, he is not 51...not 52, not 53, not 54, but 61. No wait, he's anyone YOU want him to be.

In my own words
Are you one of the few color-blind people living in this part of the country? I am. I come from an area of the country where if you like a person you date or make friends with them. If you have bigoted thoughts towards any race, let's not waste each other’s time. People are people and should be treated as such.
I am a professional engineer. I am still working but looking forward to retirement soon. Let's email each other to see if capability suits us. How are you going to know what you want or like if you don't take a chance?
Forget those wild dreams of Cary Grant or Sidney Poitier. This is real life and people are real. Are you?
I am searching for a real woman. One that does not exaggerate or tell you the things they think you want to hear. Send pictures of themselves 20 years ago or pictures of someone else. Being honest is a real virtue. Try it, it really works.
The person I would like to meet must be alive and love the outdoors. I love the water, windsurfing, scuba diving, fishing and walking on lovely local and far away beaches. If you are looking for someone who is caring, loving and in love with love than stop here; you have found him. Now, are you willing to do anything about it. I am waiting for you (PREDATOR!). You won't regret the time spent to touch base with me..............
