Facebook Ad Says She Wants Me

I was trying to do Facebook this morning (I never fully get it, you know…) and I noticed a little picture of a very healthy looking young woman, with a generous chest, in the right hand column; and some text said she and others like her were looking to meet men aged 60+

This Facebook thing is crazy. I want to give up on it again, but every time I do it I find some lovely little notice from someone out of my past that absolutely intrigues me. This morning I posted a photograph about our little lake voyage last Saturday evening and I got so many nice comments about it. I’m very, very slowly learning how to do Facebook and get some fun out of it.

But, what’s this about some smashing young woman who is anxious to meet me. Really! I need to tell my wife that I’m still desired – longed for – wished for – that she ought to be impressed!

I didn’t take the bait, by the way! No, you can’t fool an old codger like I. I knew there’d be some kind of fee involved. And also – well, frankly – that photo was just a little bit too much for me. I’d have a heart attack or stroke for sure. I just know I would.

What the hell is Facebook doing accepting ads like that? I saw another – a day or so ago – about penis enlargement! OMG! Is there no escaping stupidity?

Why haven’t women protested such advertising – and men too, for that matter? Well, this is my formal protest: “Facebook, those ads are stupid and they are insulting to all of us who are just trying to keep in touch with friends.”

I’m no goody-two-shoes, but must we have such unremarkable and low-brow stuff bothering us when we’re trying to share with friends on Facebook? There are plenty of places on-line for such advertising. Why so on Facebook? Just for the record, I don’t like it!

Why not become a follower?
If you read my blog regularly, why not become a follower? All you have to do is click in the upper right hand corner and establish a simple means of communication. Then you'll be informed every time a new blog is posted here. If all that's confusing, here's Google's explanation of how to do it! If you don’t want to post comments on the blog, but would like to communicate with me about it, send me an email if you’d like.


  1. I'm disappointed. I thought it was me she was after.

  2. My immediate reaction was: Ah, if they were only brains!"
