A few years ago, personal ads in newspapers generally read like this: “The good single woman is looking for a caring and loving single man for a long-term relationship. She has to like cats.
At that time, getting an appointment was often like that, and there are some people who actually had enough luck finding people to go out that way. But during this era of the Internet, those personal newspaper ads are so outdated and have already been replaced by online dating services of all kinds.
