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?

    Poor guy, unlucky in love it seems.

  3. Tannille says:

    Some times it just doesn’t matter how great the person may be. Loved the flow (format).

    Last chance? There isn’t going to be 2030, Male, 72, may be old, but seen a thing or two….

  5. That night he met the woman of his dreams, married her, had babies and then … woke up!

    Here’s mine!

  6. 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. 😉

  8. msjadeli says:

    I also like the format and at least each decade’s ad is in good taste. Good luck to him!

  9. Dale says:

    Hey, it ain’t over till it’s over…
    He just might find that one willing to take a chance.

  10. 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!

  12. wmqcolby says:

    And Dimucci thanks, CE.

  13. Bill says:

    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.

  14. Liz Young says:

    He sounds interesting – is he still available?

  15. plaridel says:

    he could be looking for love in all the wrong places as the song goes… time to change tactic. 🙂

  16. granonine says:

    Aw, this is very sad. Perhaps he should try going to church—lots of widows, singles, women of good character 🙂

  17. notestowomen says:

    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.

  18. Sandra says:

    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.

  19. Ah, he may find something in a decade or two … 😉

  20. trishsplace says:

    Very interesting point of view of one man’s search for love.

  21. 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.
