Each week we’ll offer some obvious advice for improving your personal ad experience and keeping yourself off of the Stud List.
Last week’s tip was on perspective and how it is best to always write as one’s self. This week’s tip provides additional guidance on how to write a personal ad.
An ad should describe yourself and what you are looking for. In addition to your physical attributes, interests, and goals it is common to disclose status. A simple “I’m available” or “I’m single” is a great way to do this. If you find yourself writing things like “I just recently got out of a really bad relationship,” or “I just got out of a relationship that ended badly, she didn’t really love me,” and “I went broke in NC trying my luck at getting back together with my ex. It didn’t work out, and now I sleep on a floor” followed by derogatory terms directed at women in general…you probably still have bitter feelings about your past relationship and should refrain from dating until these feelings have subsided. Using strong or offensive language to describe what you are not looking for in a partner is counterproductive. Words like “whores, retards, and stupid” scare away the nice women you are searching for and attract “crazy bitches” in a similar manner that manure attracts flies.
We’d like to thank our audience for their continued support. We’ve had a successful couple of weeks here on the web and hope you enjoy reading the blog as much we enjoy writing it. Until next week….
