Wait, taller people are more desirable. For a guy, 510" isnt all that tall. Better bump that up a bit.

"Employed"? That could mean anything. I dont want anyone thinking that I work at a Quickie-Mart. "Neon green Slurpee" doesnt rhyme with "high income bracket".

To many, the lingo of personal ads is all too familiar. It is a Morse code that deciphers the personalized characteristics of an individual: height, weight, economic status, hobbies, eye and hair colour. The list can and does go on, with details as to whether or not you smoke, have religious affiliations, are looking for a committed relationship or summer fling, and your goals for the future. Any and all spontaneity are neutered so that the only thing left to chance is the severity of your garlic breath. But all the agonizing text editing is worth it in the end. After all, you may just find your soul mate, your raison detre , the tacky pair of shorts to your Richard Simmons. Or will you? Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the game of dating.
Driven by primal needs, dating is a means of finding your life partner. In and of itself, it is not a new concept. People have been dating in some form or other since walking upright came into fashion. This month, the Virtual Museum of Canada has an excellent online exhibit titled Valentines Day: Love and Romance Through the Ages that examines the history of Valentines Day as well as early dating practices and customs (www.virtualmuseum.ca/Exhibitions/valentin). In medieval Europe, for instance, writers crafted epic poems and stories for their loved ones that embodied chivalry, faithfulness, and purity. According to the exhibit, this period of human history proclaimed the "greatest love was one yearned for, yet unrequited." We can also conclude that this time period is where the modern day "drama queen" originated.
Another interesting topic touched on by Love and Romance Through the Ages is the concept of the ceremonious present that one gives as a token of affection. In ancient times, King of Babylon Nebuchadnezzar ordered the creation of the Hanging Gardens. Now one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the love-struck monarch fashioned this architectural marvel for his wife Semiramis. Whoever claimed diamonds were a girls best friend clearly new nothing of Nebuchadnezzars gift. Sorry Marilyn Monroe.
