I saw these in my latest issue of Glamour - 2 personal ads from the 1800's that were excerpted from a new book. Didn't know they were around that long. At least the guys mention love & forever...
"I am tired of being alone musing on my pug, Tansey. want a chubby little woman to love in stead. Am 5 feet 5 & 22." Canadian Matrimonial News 1892
"Any gal who's got a bed, coffee pot, & skillit...can make a hunting shirt, and knows how to take care of children, can have my services until death parts us both of us." Batesville News, Arkansas 1855
