My Match.com ad said: “I am not looking for a maid, cook, laundress, dishwasher or sex object. I’m looking for a partner and companion.”
Another part of my ad said that “Bugs Bunny is my hero!” Well, he is always successful and has lots of fun doing it.
My future wife’s ad said: “Intelligence is important.”
She didn’t need someone to pay bills, chop firewood, pump gasoline, assemble furniture, or kill spiders, either.
Also, we understood each other’s jokes — most people don’t. It’s a perfect match. Just like the romance novels.
I was 54 when I finally got it right. Never give up.
