Over 40 million people have sought true love online, making personal ads a fun, new way to meet Mr. or Ms. Right. But personals have been with us for a long time—for over three hundred years, in fact—long before computers or television started to make our fairy tale dreams come true. 

 

Man with Farm Seeks Woman with Tractor

Overview

Over 40 million people have sought true love online, making personal ads a fun, new way to meet Mr. or Ms. Right. But personals have been with us for a long time—for over three hundred years, in fact—long before computers or television started to make our fairy tale dreams come true. 

 

Man with Farm Seeks Woman with Tractor dishes up some of the funniest and most touching personals ever written—as well as some of the most pathetic—from the horse-and-buggy era to our own information superhighway.  Some personal ads are so startling they defy explanation.  With mention of everything from glass eyes to preserved jars of meat to heated boils and one-legged runaway brides, these personal ads are enough to open your eyes a little wider when your morning coffee just isn’t doing the trick.

You might find inspiration here for composing your own unique mating call (or for how not to compose it!). If you’re already hitched for life, you’ll still find hours of amusement at the foibles and weird triumphs of humanity’s never-ending quest for love, play, and companionship.
