Ah! The Queen’s palette. Thought I recognized it. 😉
So, how do we paint a word picture? A lot of people have been doing it this way and this is only one guy out of millions over the years.
Male, 22, just graduated college. No job yet, but looking. Promising career in engineering. Wishes to meet girl same age.
Male, 32. Going into the army for short-term. Wants girl slightly younger and not interested in man making $50,000 or more. Wants sincerity.
Male, 42, veteran, looking for woman with nice looks (a few extra pounds are fine) good personality. I have a steady job, have had three others in unrelated field.
Man, 52, speaks three languages, been around the world. Wants woman who likes traveling.
Male, 62. Accomplished. Proven. Last chance, ladies —- anyone?
Hope springs eternal
Looks more like the spring dried up.
Poor guy, unlucky in love it seems.
I guess he chose either life over accomplishment. The tragic part is he seemed ignorant of the decision.
Some times it just doesn’t matter how great the person may be. Loved the flow (format).
Yeah, the format was inspired by a song by a guy named Michael Kelly Blanchard whose lyrics were like this. I thought I’d give it a whack.
Last chance? There isn’t going to be 2030, Male, 72, may be old, but seen a thing or two….
Well, Trent, I’ll tell ya … that is optimism at its finest! Might be a continuation after all.
He’s been optimistic for 40 years, what’s a couple more decades of hope? 😉
That night he met the woman of his dreams, married her, had babies and then … woke up!
Hahahaha! The alarm goes off! He really did meet the woman of his dreams — for real!
Dear Cuzzin Kent,
2020 seeking female on 2 legs. Must have warped sense of humor. 😉 Nicely painted. Love the format.
Thanks. Figured you might. Good descriptor, too. 😉
I also like the format and at least each decade’s ad is in good taste. Good luck to him!
Hey, it ain’t over till it’s over…
He just might find that one willing to take a chance.
At THAT age? It’d be the greatest victory for romance since Alice Cooper eloped with himself.
Loved the format. I am wondering what he’s ‘accomplished’ at, it’s certainly not romance or attractiveness 🙂
Ah! You made me read over what I wrote! 😀 It looks like he got three languages out of it, got to go around the world. The point, for me anyway, was that he never made a lot of money.
Clever piece, Kent.
Five out of five Dions!
And Dimucci thanks, CE.
The song that played in my head, “He’s an Old Hippie” (maybe third or fourth sequel). Creative. I loved it and smiled, start to finish.
Thanks, Bill! I’ve never heard of that song before, though.
He was an old hippie at 35, now he’s even older than before, 45. That was like 30 years ago. 🙂
He sounds interesting – is he still available?
Remind me to tell you sometime. 😀
he could be looking for love in all the wrong places as the song goes… time to change tactic. 🙂
Old soldiers never die … but their medals go to a rusty coffee can in the back of the closet.
Aw, this is very sad. Perhaps he should try going to church—lots of widows, singles, women of good character 🙂
Indeed! I would recommend that for him, too. I know a LOT of guys in that spot.
He’s not a quitter, that’s for sure. As long as he has breath, I guess he will keep trying to see if there are any takers out there.
You never know.
I think he’s got staying power. It’s a shame no-one else seems to match his with theirs. Maybe time to change his tactics.
That’s what Plaridel said, too. I guess he’s burnt out or something.
Ah, he may find something in a decade or two … 😉
Hahaha! Probably a stone on his headstone.
Very interesting point of view of one man’s search for love.
It would appear his ad writing needs a little work, they are missing the mark. Unlucky in love, but it sounds like he’s had an interesting life.
And you’d think it would have been better than having a job with money. Maybe.
