Friday night and you have your usual date with Ben and Jerry.
You’re single and in your prime, but you’re just not winning the
dating game. The bars are too
crowded and you’re tired of playing the scene just to go home alone frustrated
and depressed. You’re beginning
to wonder if there really is anyone out there for you, and you’re losing faith
fast. You can’t muster up the
energy to try any more, because you’ve tried it all: blind dates, dating
services, personal ads, and even friendly approaches to that cute girl at the
gym or the hot guy at the lunch counter. It
doesn’t matter—nothing works.
We have your solution right here, with a back-to-basics approach at love. Ever wonder what it was like to date and marry in simpler times? Well wonder no more because here at the Last-Ditch-Effort Singles Network, we provide you with all the information you need to find a proper mate and settle down the way it was meant to be: it's time to take a tip or two from our ancestors in Stuart and Georgian England!
That’s right—eighteenth century English courtship was a successful method of finding a partner. So successful, in fact, that the explicit conduct manuals and how-to guides of the eighteenth century still survive today and can provide you with all the necessary skills to not only find appropriate dates and mates, but to be so successful in your endeavors that you’ll eventually have your pick from several prospects! We guarantee that everything old is new again, and that these time-tested methods will turn you into the desirable lady or gentleman you were meant to be. If you’re one of the many that have nothing to lose, take a risk and see what the past can offer you…
