“A lady’s imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment”
This is weird…..
But I thought “hey, maybe I’ll admit something odd about myself”… so here goes. I like looking at the craigslist personals and missed connections. NOT for myself, or in the hopes that someone wrote a missed connection for me. But rather because I find it really interesting.
First off, almost EVERY guy claims he’s going to treat me and every other woman reading his ad as a princess. YEAH right. Then they always say something about how they want a “fit, athletic” woman. There is something so shallow about this, yet I suppose it’s a good thing they’re being honest. What happens when someone responds that isn’t physically fit?? Do they get rejected… I mean isn’t posting an ad on there sinking pretty low anyways.
THEN when you look at the female ads looking for men, most of them are single mothers. I find this odd. Almost like it’s not okay for a woman without a child who is alone to post one, yet any man at any age can post one. Or maybe they’re not telling us they have children… HMM.
Secondly, I find the missed connections adorable. For the most part. Some can be pretty bad, but usually they’re cute saying something like, “I thought you were beautiful, sitting in the cafe reading your book, pushing the hair out of your gorgeous eyes”– I’m not making this stuff up. I’m not going to lie, it would be fun to have someone write that about you. Can you imagine checking it and thinking, wait… I was at the cafe…. I was reading that book… is it me?? haha.
Hmm… I guess it’s just an activity to pass the time. Another fun thing to look at one craigslist is the “free” section. Usually everything in there should be free, and you wonder why someone would post an ad to get rid of it?? It should just be at a dump.
Things to ponder I suppose! Have a lovely Friday everyone! 🙂
