A love match 152 years in the making.
Dating is literally the worst, right?
The apps, the money, the awkwardness, the profile pics, and OMG the bios?!?
And, look, I get it. It’s not easy to write a “great” personal profile.
Or even a halfway decent one, apparently.
But way the heck back in 1865, at least one dude had it all figured out. (His dating profile, that is. Not his love life – because apparently dating has been tough FOREVER.)
And, just so you know, this photo is of a random dude from 1865 – NOT the actual person who wrote the ad below.
