MWM Seeks MWF

What marriage might look like as a personal ad

Once in awhile I scan the personals to see what singles are up to these days. The ads strike me as poignant attempts to describe oneself honestly while trying to snare the right partner. Thank goodness marrieds can move beyond all that. Or do we? Here's what married personals might look like through the stages of married life.

First Anniversary

MWM seeks attractive female to share life with. Would like kids someday; for now wants someone to dream with and make love to as we set up our life together. Have energy and ambition—will surely make a difference in the world. Enjoy running, handball, and skiing. Like to watch sitcoms, esp. about singles, younger couples. Can enjoy chick flicks (with the right chick) but tend toward action and adventure. Faith very important, including church every Sunday, and weekly small group with mate.

MWF seeks handsome male to share life with. Would like kids someday, but for now want someone to dream with and make love to as we set up our life together. Have energy and compassion; hope to make a difference in someone's life. Enjoy running, racquetball, and skiing. Like to watch sitcoms, esp. about singles, younger couples. Can enjoy action and adventure flicks (with the right guy) but tend to enjoy relationship movies. Faith very important, including church every Sunday, and weekly small group with mate.

Seventh Anniversary

MWM seeks affectionate female to share life with. Willing to help with kids, but really want someone to make love to, and not someone who is tired all the time. Have energy and ambition; starting to make a difference in the world. Enjoy jogging and racquetball. Like to watch sports, sitcoms, and evening news. Handyman, when I have time. Action and adventure movies and thriller novels. Faith very important, including church every Sunday, finance committee, and men's breakfast—when I'm not traveling on business.
