Early Sunday mornings are set aside to clear out the spam from my numerous email accounts. I happened to notice that, along with the regular emails that have informed me that my ex-husband was killed on a dangerous stretch of road in Nigeria, something that seems to occur on a weekly basis (my poor ex has died more times then a cat with nine-lives on that very stretch of road) and how male enhancement products can, in fact, spice up my love life with the woman that I love (which I think they kind of have me confused with someone named Dennis), I found a few new types of emails having crept into my box. One was how I too, can find hot women who are looking for sexually hungry men by responding to their ads on a particular site, and the others from both Match.com and EHarmony.
When I was single, just right after my divorce, the dating lines were just starting up. I was a single parent, who didn't get out too much and a girlfriend and I decided, perhaps for fun, to give the local line a chance. The local newspaper provided a space for it and since it wouldn't cost us any money we each placed one. Hers was along the lines of classy young lady, never married looking for professional male...blah, blah, blah...her hopes were to find a doctor or lawyer. (She found the doctor but that turned into a strange obsession where they both started stalking each other, which is another story).
Mine was along the lines of divorced 30 something down to earth female, enjoys Steelers football, long walks, long talks ...blah blah blah...seeking the same. My friend ended up jealous because I ended up with more hits then she did. I had met a few nice guys out of it and, yes, even chatted with some really wierd ones, but nothing really panned out of it, especially since being newly divorced, I wasn't really seeking a serious relationship.
Being married now, I have no desire to place a personal ad, however, it doesn't stop me from thinking about how I would write one or two of them up. I would be torn on which one I would actually use, the serious one or the fun loving one.
I guess if I were to use the serious one, it would read, mature woman, late 40s, children no longer at home, romantic at heart, enjoys long walks on beaches, watching sunsets, quiet evenings at home, and Sundays watching football, with the spontaneity to run off and go dancing, horseback riding, etc........
However, I'd be more likely to use this one:
Old biddy seeking young stud who doesn't have an adversion to yardwork and organizing garages in exchange for homebaked cookies.
So...if you were to write an ad, what would yours be?
