This Dating Profile From 1865 Is So Pure You’ll Probably Fall In Love
A love match 152 years in the making.
Dating is literally the worst, right?
And, look, I get it. It's not easy to write a "great" personal profile.
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.)
In a post shared by Twitter user Max Roser, it turns out this gentleman caller placed the following personal ad back in 1865, and honestly?! It's so pure and perfect.
Let's break down some of the highlights, shall we?
"I [...] have a good set of teeth."
"My buckwheat looks first-rate, and the oats and potatoes are bully."
"I have got nine sheep, a two-year-old bull, and two heifers, besides a house and barn."
"I want to buy bread-and-butter, hoop-skirts, and waterfalls for some person of the female persuasion..."
And in a heartbreaking closing, he ends: "That's what's the matter with me. But I don't know how to do it."
Take a trip down memory lane that’ll make you feel nostalgia AF
