The 1865 Version Of Tinder

“A man advertising for a wife in Maine, 1865.”

CHANCE FOR A SPINSTER–a young man in Aroostook County, Maine advertising for a wife, speaks of himself as follows: “I am eighteen years old, and have a good set of teeth and believe in Andy Johnson, the star spangled banner, and the 4th of July. I have taken up a State lot, cleared 18 acres last year, and seeded ten of it down. My buckwheat looks first rate, and the oats and potatoes are bully. I have got nine sheep, a two-year-old bull, and two heifers, besides a house and barn. I want to get married. I want to buy bread-and-butter, hoop skirts, and waterfalls for some person of the female persuasion during life. That’s what’s the matter with me. But I don’t know how to do it.”

Ask Greg

“When I got married last year I loved the trend of ‘naked cakes.’ At that time the trend was relatively new and the bakery asked for pictures. According to my receipt, if you want a naked picture, you should ask ‘Greg.'”
