Sad to say, I decided to check out the Yahoo personals online. Men in my life (friends or otherwise) are in short supply recently, and it doesn't hurt to see who is out there, right?
Yes, it does.
People, the following are ACTUAL headlines from local men in my age range from Yahoo personals. I did not typo correct, or change them in any way. And it only took me about 10 minutes to compile all these winners.
