Here’s an example of a national personal ad that was very successful for me:
I LOVE YOU DARLING! How long have you longed to hear these words? How often have you longed to be held in a man’s arms, to be cuddled, caressed and kissed, warmly, sweetly, tenderly? Perhaps you are my sweetheart – who knows? Nice, attractive one-woman man, writer, author, publisher, 35, 6’1″, 200 lbs., desires to meet attractive, loving, slender woman 20-40 who is interested in a meaningful relationship leading to marriage. Photo please.
In summation, include these items in your ad:
2. Age, height, and weight.
3. What you’re looking for in a woman.
4. Age range of women you desire to meet.
5. Your hobbies, interests, and things you like to do.
6. Let her know you are a “one-woman man.”
7. You are interested in a meaningful relationship.
The following is a good-pulling ad that I ran in a local publication:
