Funny Personals That Women Post

Dating, love, marriage—all of these things are very serious and very important. But that doesn't mean we can't have a good laugh every now and then at someone else's expense—especially those who advertise themselves on the public market with such an amusing array of humorous, weird, and shocking words.

In another article, I highlighted some of the most bizarre, arrogant, and downright creepy ads posted by men. Here, we will see what the ladies have to say.

As before, remember that this article is meant to be educational, so take these following ads as examples in how not to advertise yourself when dating.

It's not much to ask for, right?!

The Woman Who Knows What She Wants

Who says that women don't know what they want? Sure, some women's opinions and needs may change every few minutes, but there are some females on this planet who know exactly what they want.

Examples: Women With Long Checklists

Arrogance is a valuable asset these days.

  • I consider myself the perfect woman. I'm smart, fun, witty, pretty, enthusiastic, the best cook, a great housekeeper, and an ideal citizen. Don't believe me? See for yourself.

Looks Are Almost Everything

It is pretty much understood that mean are visual creatures. They like to look first. What one guy finds attractive may be a major turn-off for the next guy; each one has his own individual idea about beauty.

Examples: Women Who Are Simply Irresistible

I won't judge you on what you wear either. looking for guy between 20 and 60, with good teeth, maybe curly hair, and good hands. (What are good hands?)

Kind, Loving, Charming, Etc.

Many men want to settle down with a woman who is sweet and nurturing, Someone who will support them after a hard day. Someone who will be a role model to their children as she extends a loving hand to those in need. Here are some women who probably don't fit that vision.

  • I hate men. At least most men. I am looking for the man who can change my opinion.
  • SW--28 tired or dealing with love. Looking for a man who is NOT a retarded, crazy, stupid, ugly, short, fat, drunk, jobless, mean, depressed, lying loser.
  • My name is Willa, I am 35, divorced, attractive, and lonely. I am looking for a LTR with someone who is honest and conversational. I will be honest too. I hate kids, so don't even bother me if you have them. I hate in-laws (bad experience so don't expect me to love them. I hate cats, so get rid of it or don't bother me. I hate sports, so if that is your thing, either bring your own television or find someone who likes them. I am curvy, 5'7", brown hair, brown eyes, and have a great job.

Young Love

Dating ads presented by the younger women of our world can be very interesting, too.

Examples: The Innocence of Youth

  • Single (again) 18, cute, 5'7", 130 pounds. Black hair, blue eyes. my heart has broken hundreds of times over the years. I need someone mature, (18-19 1/2), pref. a Leo or Aries.

Love and the Older Generation

Women typically live longer than men. Gone are the days when widows had to live out the rest of their lives alone. Older women get divorced too. That's okay. It is healthy and normal for these ladies to seek out new love lives. Sounds like the future men for these ladies will have their hands full, though.

Examples: Women of a Certain Age

  • Active, healthy, octogenarian seeking handsome older man for committed relationship. must healthy, polite, and very good in bed.
  • 76 (look 65) DW, being pushed relentlessly by granddaughter to find a new boyfriend. Looking for mentally stable, nice looking man of any age, race, style, and background that is willing to put up with me. Please like pets, gardening and nosy grandchildren.
  • Janet—79, widowed twice. Not looking to marry again, just want to date nice gentleman close to my age. I hold a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and am currently training in Judo. I know how to defend myself. So no perverts.
  • 81—Had enough commitment. Seeking someone for casual dating and romance. If it works you can move into my spare apartment. Both free to date others. Please be clean, kind, and have no criminal background. Be willing to be tested for drugs/STD's.

The Weird and Indecipherable

I think we all get a little irked when we see messages on social networks that are garbled, and unreadable We can forgive typos, a little bad spelling, even some incorrect word use. I definitely forgive people who are making an wonderful effort to type or write in a second language.

However...I firmly believe some of the messages such as the ones below were written by people from Mars. Or maybe Neptune.

Examples: What?!

  • hot gurl needin agrate man. Be nice, smart and good looking no weirdos. 19 busty nedd someone to hang with.
  • Pretentious. No crime. Beautiful. Not a sin. Vain. With good reason. Real. Why then?
  • 18, single could be anything.
  • SWF (yg-)No pps, no ds. Looking for Sm (ar)/(aa). Ints incl. bting, fshing, mm. Hlth chk, plz.. YPGMP. (um...okay.)
  • onions make me cry, so do boys who lie...i need some one who cares, not someone who stares. Thanks todd you broke my hart, and now we are apart. I can't believe you cheated, my hart is deafeated. Im sexy and im hot, if your with someone who's not, i need someone whose new, call me if its you. (19, bl hair, bl eyes, pretty, fun need someone who is not TODD. who better not call me.)

All You Need Is Love

The world is full of lonely people looking for love. Why does dating have to be so hard? Well, the good news is that experts say that there is someone (or more) for each of us.

No matter what you look like, or unusual you seem in your ads, that perfect someone is out there waiting for you too. Happy dating!

Gail Meyers from Johnson County, Kansas on July 28, 2013:

This is a cute hub, Sharkye11. I chuckled most of the way through reading it. Voted up.

Jayme Kinsey (author) from Oklahoma on May 20, 2013:

Aww--thank you very much Epigramman! It is a shame that people waste most of a good life looking for the 100% perfect partner. because really, if you find that person, chances are you two will be so much alike that you bore each other to tears! I will take my relationship with my husband anyday...we grumble,we laugh. We compromise, we lock horns, but we are rarely bored.

Thanks for reading and leaving such a splendid comment. And I hope that birthdays with cats are as wonderful in Canada as they are in Oklahoma! :)

Jayme Kinsey (author) from Oklahoma on May 20, 2013:

@suzette--Absolutely correct. And maybe these women are on to something. By being 100% honest they have a better chance of culling out the wrong types of partners! Thanks for reading and enjoying! I certainly hope these ladies met their matches!

Jayme Kinsey (author) from Oklahoma on May 20, 2013:

@vandynegel--Thanks! Yes, people have a way with words and thoughts, for sure!

epigramman on May 19, 2013:

Wow Jayme you rock Epi-man's world with your screamingly funny hub presentation and I look for the yin and yang in everything and on the flip side it's kinda sad about human nature isn't it - going through all of this just for a little slice of happiness in a short life and to try to find your perfect soul mate which ironically most of us never even find, lol.

Thank you for this late night or early morning laugh fest though and congratulations on your perfect 100 score - your eclectic choices of hubs look fantastic - sending you warm wishes and good energy from Colin on his birthday along with his cats Tiffy and Gabriel at lake erie time ontario canada 3:02am

Jayme Kinsey (author) from Oklahoma on May 11, 2013:

@Flourishanyway--Glad you read and enjoyed! I think we could all learn a lesson from Judo lady! :)

Jayme Kinsey (author) from Oklahoma on May 07, 2013:

@Gypsy48--my thoughts exactly. I wonder if these ladies are still single and disgruntled? thanks for reading!

Suzette Walker from Taos, NM on May 03, 2013:

This is hilarious! My uncle always said, "There's a lid for very pot." So, single women do not despair. I enjoyed reading this and it made me laugh.

Jayme Kinsey (author) from Oklahoma on May 02, 2013:

@dghbrh--thanks! It was fun to research and write!

Jayme Kinsey (author) from Oklahoma on April 30, 2013:

@Daisy--I loved the older women too. I found that ad about the lady with the Judo training years and years ago in a small Arkansas newspaper. I thought it was so cute and hilarious. Thanks for reading, I am glad you enjoyed!

Jayme Kinsey (author) from Oklahoma on April 30, 2013:

@Alecia Murphy--Wow...that would really be an interesting course! I peeked at a few Craigslist ads while writing these articles and I was pretty amazed. Those ads are certainly....blunt. And sometimes very, very weird. I'm not sure if they are all real, or if someone thought them up just to see if they got any responses. A much too competitive sport with too many rules for my taste!

Yes. Poor Willa. Honesty is a good thing though. Maybe she found someone with no relatives, kids, cats, or sporting interests! Glad you got a laugh from it! Thanks for reading and commenting!

Jayme Kinsey (author) from Oklahoma on April 30, 2013:

@tillsontitan--singles ads are definitely a look into human behavior. I noticed a big difference between the older ads and the more recent ones as well. People seem more irritable and blunt as time progresses. And then if you read the ads listed online today...well...they are just outrageous. Thanks for reading and commenting, and I am glad you got a good laugh!

Jayme Kinsey (author) from Oklahoma on April 26, 2013:

@janetwrites--Thanks! Glad you enjoyed! :)

Jayme Kinsey (author) from Oklahoma on April 26, 2013:

@aviannovice--Indeed. I think that is what makes these ads so great. Gives a whole new perspective to the concept "someone for everyone"! Thanks for reading!

Jayme Kinsey (author) from Oklahoma on April 26, 2013:

@shiningirisheyes--glad it made you laugh! Don't discount the singles ads though...they are a great rainy day read when you want a giggle! Thanks for reading!

vandynegl from Ohio Valley on April 26, 2013:

Wow! I cannot believe what some people write! Thanks for sharing this! Very entertaining!

FlourishAnyway from USA on April 26, 2013:

The personal ads are always entertaining. I really liked the older generation one, especially the judo black belt lady.

Gypsy48 on April 26, 2013:

Entertaining hub, well done. Some women seem to know what they want, I just wonder what kind of person they actually end up with. Voted up.

deergha from ...... a place beyond now and beyond here !!! on April 26, 2013:

LOL...liked really your take on the issue. Thanks for sharing. Shared and votes up.

Daisy Mariposa from Orange County (Southern California) on April 25, 2013:


This is such a fun article! Thanks for all the time you spent gathering the material / doing the research.

Your "Love and the Older Generation" section is the best. Those older women certainly know what they want!

Alecia Murphy from Wilmington, North Carolina on April 25, 2013:

I did a study of personal ads on Craigslist in college, let me tell you, it was all kinds of crazy. From married and looking to people who just wanted to have a hot hookup. But it was one of my favorite projects simply because it helped me understand why people say they hate dating- it's like the most competitive sport not on ESPN.

I have to imagine some of these people got no responses- especially Willa- since she doesn't even like cats or kids. Not to mention she can't even deal with sports. Thanks for the chuckle!

Jayme Kinsey (author) from Oklahoma on April 25, 2013:

@VirginiaLynne--Scary huh? We can only hope her grades kept her out of med school. Pretty sure she could still be a brain surgeon with bad spelling...but really worried about that homework that didn't get done while she was chatting to blind dates! Thanks for reading and commenting!

Mary Craig from New York on April 25, 2013:

What strange creatures we are! This was a great hub to insight into what's going on out there. Some very funny, some very sad. Nicely done.

Voted up, funny, and interesting.

Jayme Kinsey (author) from Oklahoma on April 24, 2013:

@kj force--I hear the seeds can be very expensive. But worth the price if you are absolutely picky! :) Single moms look to have a hard time at dating--either they attract weirdos or they get ignored. So I definitely wish your daughter luck! As for the rest of us, we can just sit back and laugh at some of the antics in dating ads. And what is even scarier? These were the NICE ads. Some were too awful to put on here! Thanks for reading and I am glad you enjoyed!

Jayme Kinsey (author) from Oklahoma on April 23, 2013:

Thanks ggs3480! Glad that you read and enjoyed.

Janet Giessl from Georgia country on April 23, 2013:

This is absolutely funny! A very great and well-presented hub.

Deb Hirt from Stillwater, OK on April 23, 2013:

These are definitely...interesting. Some brought a smile, and others brought laughter. But, there is someone for everyone...

Shining Irish Eyes from Upstate, New York on April 23, 2013:

What a great subject matter for a hub! I enjoyed this immensely and want to tell you what a great sense of humor you write with! This also serves as a perfect example toward my staying clear of singles adds! LOL

Virginia Kearney from United States on April 22, 2013:

This is just hillarious! I love the "future brain surgeon" who can't spell and doesn't have time to date but can chat with someone while doing homework. Voted up and pinned.

kjforce from Florida on April 22, 2013:

Sharkye11.....OMG....I am still in awe ! and laughing as I write.. I know exactly of what you daughter ( single mom) and many of her friends fall into this category..and the stories you related are not far off...I have heard many that are almost unbelieveble...I however have a solution.." Want a perfect man ?/..PLANT one ! " seeds available .....

although avoid overwatering...loved your take on subject...

GAGANPREET SINGH BHATIA from Kanpur, India on April 22, 2013:

Unique & well written hub. Passing it on.
