"Do you love me? Will you answer this all absorbing question the next time we meet? Will you utter that winsome "Yes" fraught with all the golden dreams of heavenly realms, or will you pronounce the dread "No" and consign my soul to darkness and despair?" Advertising for Love
, a collection of funny, strange, poignant and bizarre personal ads from nineteenth-century American newspapers.

– Our own the jam
couldn't find a personals site that he wasn't embarrassed to join, so he made his own. No popularity contests, no horoscopes, no buddy lists. Just profiles made from wide-open text fields and anti-creepiness features baked in at every turn.[Lifetime membership will be $5, but until it hits 10,000 profiles, it's free.] via mefi projects

Meet Mark. I am a 49 year old truck driver. Divorced, one daughter, 18, looking for a LADY, 45 to 55 years old, no tatoos, no body piercings except ears, but most importantly NOT LIBERAL (lady and not liberal kind of go hand in hand, don't they?).
Mark is just one of the many available lovebirds waiting for you at Hannidate

Way Too Personals. I'm interested in a woman who is not caught up in the dependency of a psychotherapy relationship. I prefer someone who is not addicted to simple "therapyisms" and who has the courage to survive and enjoy life without a "therapy crutch". I prefer someone able to get beyond simple psychotherapy paradigms, and view behavior (in the REAL WORLD) in terms of factors that explain considerably more than a negligible amount of the total variance.

Man, this guy is desperate.
Missed out on the Fox pageant? Here's your chance to be the next Mrs. Rockwell. "Last of the true romantics"? If that's true romance, thank god he's the last.
