Dating news paper pop up speed dating timeout
Sure it may seem like there are way more genuinely ~nice guys~ now, but do they offer to buy you bread and butter? Max Roser, a researcher for the University of Oxford, posted a photo of an 1865 newspaper dating ad. This man seeking a woman simply didn't know how find someone of the female persuasion to share his sheep with.
The headline reads "Chance for a Spinster" and though "spinster" is mostly used as insult now, at the time he was just trying to call out all the single ladies. It's honestly an incredibly relatable problem, even in 2017.
The writing — whether in ink or lead — remains legible.
Damn, an 18-year old with good teeth and 10 acres of seeded land? And the poor chap didn't have Tinder to see what hoop-skirt loving ladies were living in his area.
