GUEST,Ms Penelope Rutledge BS: Help me write a personal ad (56* d) RE: BS: Help me write a personal ad 22 Aug 04

I have avoided this forum for a long time, having had better things to do with my time than navigate through a Sargasso Sea of idiocy and vulgarity combined with unfounded attacks on my personal reputation and honour. However, I feel compelled to address the person who started this thread with a word or two of urgent advice.

Don't run a "personals" ad at all! There are a great many scoundrels and very disturbed men out there scanning such ads, looking for their next victim. Don't let that victim be you!

I have no idea where you live or in what circumstances, but what I would advise is that you seek out decent companionship through the normal social avenues of contacts through friends and family, as well as meeting people in social clubs of a good sort, such as the polo club or the local golf club. One can also meet people of an excellent class by attending the better plays, operas, and orchestral concerts, and mingling in the "green room" or its equivalent during intermission.

The trouble with a personals ad is simply this: you have NO idea who is reading it! You could end up meeting some subhuman like the self-titled "Blind Drunk" moron above, or someone even worse! Jack the Ripper may well have met his victims by using personals ads. Think of that.

I shudder at the danger you are placing yourself in.

One more piece of advice, if you persist in pursuing this reckless course: Carry a small pistol, a large hatpin, and a can of mace. You may need all three of them.
