Dating Stories & dating testimonials
On Valentine's Day 2013 the BBC ran a very interesting article about how dating has changed over time, from lonely hearts ads to internet dating. The first lonely hearts ad was placed over 300 years ago, in 1695 to be precise. The ad was placed by a 'gentleman' looking to 'match' himself with a gentlewoman. Here's hoping that he did find true love. It was placed in a journal for husbandry and trades. I'm guessing that maybe he was lonely tending to just the sheep and cattle and wanted a lady to make him smile after a hard day doing herding sheep and miliking cows. I wonder if he was hoping to date in his 40s or 50s? Unlikely I guess, society has come on in leaps and bounds, for the good I think.
People wanting to find their soul-mate as the years progressed turned to print media, an obvious choice as options back in the 1900s for lonely-hearts ads as they were considered was limited to around 20 newspapers and an example of one such fine ad may be read in an archived copy of the Kansas City Matrimonal News of 1887, note that age, height, weight and a photo seem to be as important 300 years ago as they are today :-)
How to find one's soul-mate throughout the years now uses all forms of media, from print to social media, TV dating shows to off course the internet where it was cited in the BBC report that over 10% of all internet users use the wonderful, ubiquitous internet to find love, romance, friendship, fun and happiness.
