Isn’t Dating in 2022 an absolute chaos?!
The Dating Apps, the pickup lines, the bios, the profile pictures and the list goes on!
And, hey, we get it, it’s not easy to right a good bio for your dating profile.

And, for the record, this photo is of a random dude from 1865, not the person who penned the ad below.
This guy caller, according to a post shared by Twitter user Max Roser, published the following personal ad in 1865, and honestly?! It’s so lovely and pure.
Let’s take a look at some of the highlights.

“Along with a house and barn, I have nine sheep, a two-year-old bull, and two heifers.”

“I’d like to buy bread and butter, hoop skirts, and waterfalls for a girl…”
Let’s face it, who wouldn’t want someone who only buys them bread, butter, and hoop skirts? This is the ideal situation!
