Who Needs Cupid When You Have Craig’s List?

Image jacked from some French blog.

No, it’s not me asking the question- that’s the headline in one of the many alternately amusing and depressing Valentine’s Day pleas on Craig’s List today:

“Send me flowers at work? Make my dream come true! I am a hottie. I will send you pics to prove it. I just want some flowers today! Oy! I know, sounds pitiful but I want some!!!”

“Single professional here annoyed with the girls in the office expecting flowers. This might sound bitter but it isn’t. Instead wondering where the romance is when they have nagged their significant others into sending flowers. I guess I’m old fashioned and want someone to think of them without me turning into a psycho material hungry witch.”

“Acrimonious old hag seeks dolt with balls of steel.”

“Fat Chick For Drinks Tomorrow”

“I refuse to settle… even if it is valentines day”


Why does it have to be this hard, this humiliating? Good luck to all you lonely hearts out there. And remember, Valentine’s Day is just a day.

    Wow… some of those are pretty sad. I mean, it’s *always* better to be alone than in a bad relationship!

    Unbelievable. I find most of these amusing, especially the “Fat chick for drinks tomorrow” comment-as it’s totally lacking any trace of seriousness. But the first comment really rubbed me the wrong way.

    Has it really come to the point where someone is willing to trade pictures of their supposedly “hot” selves to some pathetic dork in exchange for some meaningless overpriced roses? Here’s a tip for you, you shallow, superficial hag: If your interests grew a little deeper than a desperate attempt to look wanted in front of your co-workers, who no-doubt already know that a pathetic, vapid wasteland resides where your soul should be, you might have someone who would genuinely care to send you something.

    Have fun trying to get a lonely real-estate banker to buy you some chocotinis tonight at Grotto.

    I know .. everyone seems to get more depressing during these love days .. if you have a date .. good and if you don’t then hey what’s the big deal? Why get all worked up about it? There are more things in this world to get depressed about than having no date.
