I’m single (further evidenced by the fact that I’m doing this at 11:45pm on a Friday night), so Facebook keeps serving “dating” ads my way. I get everything from “date wealthy single fathers” ads, to “singles into running,” and various mash-ups of some dude + some adjective + “single” (thankfully they get this part right. ..) Thinking there might be something to this, or at least some inherent entertainment value, I started actually reading the little profile ads (and yes, sometimes I click through). I’ve been single for a little while, so I’ve read quite a few of them, and I think I have a pretty good handle on what people are really saying on their dating profiles.
Disclaimer: this is purely for entertainment, so don’t take it too seriously. If you are offended, then chances are you’re not the one for me, so I just saved you $20/month on a dating site. You know what I mean – this is meant to be fun, so if you’re not in that frame of mind, read no further.
