I guess you need one when you can't slide in a selfie of you with your dog or your friend's cute baby.) The truth is, personal ads like this weren't all that uncommon in those days — in fact, some of the earliest known personal ads of "human seeking other human (and hopefully offering some prime buckwheat)" date back to 1695, and at first were placed primarily by men.It was not only a way for men to find eligible women, but for men to discretely find each other.

When I say "let's pack our bags and move to a farmhouse in Tuscany" I want someone who will reach for the closet and start packing. The key, it seemed to me upon first entering this strange alternative universe of spontaneous road-trips and brightly colored pasta, where coy exteriors belied deep reserves of untapped silliness and nobody is ever allowed to plan for anything, ever, seemed to lie in those all-important conjunctions "yet," and "but." Thus armed, the author could advance an admirable trait (groundedness), then, spotting the possible negative connotations of that trait (dullness), pivot onto its opposite (fanciful), in an act of triangulation that would bring tears to the eyes of Bill Clinton himself, then launch into a series of Whitmanesque paradoxes: Everyone seemed to be "easygoing" and "down-to-earth" and liked to "laugh a lot," mostly at themselves. It was basically the elephant's graveyard of the whole site, the place your last relationship went to die, amid a rattle of old peeves and niggles. Reading that, I leapt back from the screen as if stung. No man self-identifies as an asshole and the ones that do are precisely the sort who would respond to a dog-whistle like that.I have got nine sheep, a two-year-old bull, and two heifers, besides a house and barn. I want to buy bread-and-butter, hoop-skirts, and waterfalls for some person of the female persuasion during life. It looks like there was no shortage of milk on this dude's farm!
