If you think about it, there have probably been tens of millions of personal ads posted in newspapers and magazines, and on bulletin boards or on the internet down through the years.
That’s a lot of people looking for love, huh?
It ‘s always fiercely entertaining to read the best of these ads, too. I find myself fascinated with just how clever or touching some of them can be, or how comical or sarcastic. See, no matter how different people are all over the world, there is one thing that still unites us in a very common way, and that’s the fact that each and every one of us, no matter how messed-up or burned we have been in the past, we all still want to love and be loved more than just about anything in the world.
And judging by a few of these classic classifieds, sometimes our search for it drives us straight up a wall.
So, I decided to scour the internet to find some of the very best personal ads that have ever been recorded. Some of them were meant to be funny or creative or downright ridiculous, while others seem so intriguing because they have no idea just how cool they actually are.
Personal ads: with just a few written words (and a billion unwritten ones), each of them tells one hell of a tale.
