Should I Ever Place a Craigslist Ad

“Skywriting, Robots, Alcohol induced hilariousness, Oversharing, Plumbing Problems, Spider Marginalization, Stories in Real Time, Inaccurate Directions and Their Consequences, Being a Good Friend- Why Chuckles Actually Does Rule and Should Have the Company of an AMAZING LADY.”

The above quote from Pinko Punko would be the entire text of the thing. I have previously stated that placing a personal ad would be an admission of complete failure on my part, although I wonder then what the entire fucking purpose of this here bloggio is? Perhaps our whole lives are just performance art personal ads?

I think I need to get my head out of this dating guide for a couple days. I have been putting a surprising amount of time into that project lately; I am constantly scribbling notes to myself and writing chapter titles and abstracts. Which is funny because the last two women I have dated/am dating both asked me out.

Yeah, asked ME out. I am in the fucking Twilight Zone here. Usually I win the ladies by charming them from "Who the fuck is this lunatic?" to "Oh wow, he's actually cute and kinda slick." My current situation leaves me in a constant state of Neocon Logic: up is down, maybe is yes, maybe is no, winter is spring.

Do it.

Do what?

Von said...

Place the damn ad.

Snag said...

A neocon, eh? What are you going to be invading?

Adorablr said...

First, it is not failure. Second, place the ad. Third, AG would like to know about this tortured soul you are dating.

Chuckles said...

No fucking way am I placing a Craigslist or any other kind of personal ad.

mdhatter said...

AG just wants to see if she could spot your ad.

I'd suggest going to more parties thrown by single friends, and not bringing the spider.

AG said...

Go with the ad. See if you meet anyone.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Von said...

But didn't you say you are dating someone right now? Wouldn't it be kinda wrong to place an ad? Just curious...

Chuckles said...

Also, ads are admissions of the end and I will not admit that yet. Or possibly ever.

mdhatter said...

Don't think of it as advertising your solitude, but rather your availablity.

Or don't. I tried it twice 10 years ago and that was way more than plenty for me

I hear you. Except for that guy with the MS Paint ad that AG found, her posts about Craigslist ads have been wonderful reasons to stay away.
