I haven’t gotten to the point of placing a personal ad, but I’ve considered it.
What would mine say?
Reclusive Introvert Seeks Independent Beau Who Will Mostly Go Away; Preference Given to Men Who Live Far Away, Work Really Long Hours, and/or Train for Marathons.
Pet Mom Seeks Dude Who Will Make Me Laugh Until I Snort Soda Out My Nose.
Halloween Should Be All Year Round; Message Me If You Agree!
Alpha Female; Delicate Souls Need Not Apply. Seriously. I Will Crush Your Spirit.
Here’s My Number, But, Like, Don’t Call Me; I Don’t Use My Phone For That.
I dunno. I guess I shy away from all that personal ad business because I’m just not sure the people I adore could be summarized in 50 words or less. I wouldn’t have picked them based on only their hobbies or their line of work. I’m also highly dubious about selecting people like you would food off a menu.
I like road trips and great food and laughing, but, man, I gotta be by myself often so I don’t flip out. I’m not one of those people who gets all immersed in coupledom; doesn’t mean I’m not interested or not incredibly loyal, I’m just not cut out to be joined at the hip with anyone 24/7.
Sigh. Let’s see how the year shakes out.
