I’ve been getting even more comments from my last newsletter; tales of awful dates and stories from those who, while they first thought nothing spiritual could come of this, now bless the day internet dating was born.
This was written by a man who said I could share his online ad. I love it. It worked for him.
I am a hot zesty 44 year old awesome bundle of love looking for a yummy juicy sexy woman that can’t wait to dive into my pants and discover the fullness of life. I am a man that has the capacity to be both strong and vulnerable, passionate and intimate as well as genuine and nurturing. I enjoy creating art, dancing tango, traveling the world, and reading poetry as much as I enjoy developing a successful business, curling up by a fire, and holding hands while watching a movie.
I give myself permission to cry, to not have the answers and to make mistakes. I am a man that celebrates both his mortal and divine masculine and I am in search of my twin soul-flame consort that embodies the beautiful mystery of the awakened divine feminine with an open heart, elegance and grace.
In the name of love I invite you to trust spirit, walk the razors edge and jump off cliffs into the unknown with me.
What do you think ladies? Guys?
If you’ve ever been curious about how to put your self out into cyberland in a good way, or you have some experience in the matter, we’d like to learn more. After reading these examples, I would love to know what you think makes a great ad or what turns you off? Would you respond to any of these, and if so, why?
To start, I think anyone who writes an online ad already deserves big credit; it’s not easy to put your self out there and it’s quite a challenge to ask for what you want. Yet if you are truly ready to open to someone, as you will see, writing or responding to an online ad can be a remarkably enlightening experience. Not only might you meet an extraordinary being, even if your path is laden with ‘duds,’(people not meant for you), you’ll get to sharpen your love harpoons and practice the art of saying yes and also how to say no in a good, clear way.
p.s. of course, we want all our experiences to be a big YES right away, so you’ll also get to practice patience.
I did some coaching to help refine my friend’s approach to writing her dating ad, and asked her to get reflections from both female and male friends. Before I share my views on the principles of attracting an epic partner, plus tips on what to and what not to do, look at these sample ads and then please be so kind as to give us some feedback.
Please Note: this article is not intended as an actual ad. We are sharing these pearls as a way of showing others how they might begin the process of writing their own online ad. I think you’ll see the great shift of the author’s attitude and approach in her writing over the last two years.
What do you think?

Do you have any comments for the author ?
As promised, a friend who’s in the midst of this adventure, agreed to share the progression of her date ads.
After years on the corporate hamster wheel, I find my hiking, yoga and mediation practice much more rewarding. I have traveled the world and lived in Asia and still love packing a suitcase for the next adventure. I enjoy entertaining and my friends call me a practicing Iron Chef (and no one has died, LOL). On a serious note, I am a writer, poetry my calling, and see the world as multi-dimensional and not afraid to venture into its depths. I am looking for someone who is done with the drama. Who has had their own success in their life but values the deeper aspects of life and is ready for the next adventure and knows how to laugh and have fun.
To begin, I don’t fit into any box. That being said, most guys won’t be what I am looking for. The guy I connect with will be unique and special. Here’s a little about me – I’m passionate, self-sufficient, adventurous, progressive, and spiritual. I love independent films, good novels, amazing poetry, symphonies, and sunsets. All entries into something deeper and into the endless material for the poet I am. You can find me at a small dinner party (a cook checked), with a suitcase packed (traveler checked), doing yoga or weight training (exercise checked), dancing till dawn (that was before, today carry me out by midnight), in a five star hotel (pampering checked) or in a cabin in the woods (nature checked). Humor is important because taking anything too seriously is boring. What box don’t you fit in? What makes you feel, laugh, and brings you joy? What do you dream about?
After a successful career in the corporate world, I have to say I love being retired. There isn’t anything like having time, however, it would be even better to have someone with whom to spend it. I have traveled the world, lived abroad, yet still have more places to see…how about you, where would you like to go?
My interests are many, from exercise and meditation to poetry and theater. I also love to cook, but for two is much more fun!! I see the world as multi-dimensional and I’m excited to continue exploring it’s many facets. I like physical touch as much as a great conversation and do enjoy the finer things in life. It would be wonderful to meet a man ready for a new adventure in life.
On a closing note
Attitude is everything. And it does come through in your writing. So ask yourself three questions while seeking an epic partner;
Am I inspiring someone to contact me?
Am I inviting someone to be curious about my world?
Am I sharing interesting information or am I actually listing my demands?
Part three will include successful examples as well as pitfalls of online dating. If you’d like to learn how to make this a fascinating, and yes, a spiritual experience of discovery, I’ll also be sharing ways to increase your magnetic attraction. Till then, here’s hoping you find your way of heightening the pleasure and joy within your intimate relations.
We appreciate all your comments! Thanks.
