But there was a time when the dating service made you write an essay:

Men wanted

A contemporary search of 4554 North Broadway, Chicago, Illinois 60640 turns up the headquarters of Inspiration Corporation, which “helps hundreds of homeless and low-income individuals gain the skills to succeed in the workforce and increase self sufficiency.” I’m guessing they don’t try to marry ’em off.

    the essay is less surprising to me than some of the other phrases:

    “…screaming to meet you.” – uhhh, that could go a couple of ways i hope they didn’t intend…

    “no man is any good without a woman.” – female chauvinism!

    “do not send money” – srsly?!?

    Given the recent online-dating escapades of a few women I know, they might be screaming to get away from the men after they meet them…

    Surely, that ad must be a joke?
