Anyone got a spare leftover man?

With Mr Special moving in we have loads of stuff that we are not going to need. Two toasters, two kettles, two TV’s etc so I decided to get onto freecycle and give away some of the things I couldn’t be bothered to sell.

Have you heard of freecycle? Basically it’s a fantastic website for people who want to give away their old items to people who will use them. This stops the items being thrown in the bin and ending up in the landfill.

I got a juicer from there where the woman used it once and then put it in her cupboard. I love using it.

Anything and everything is on freecycle it’s pretty addictive you could pop there if you lost your charger or if you had a gift that you didn’t like and wanted to get rid of it.

Its easy to use you put OFFERED for the things you have that you need collecting i.e blue sofa, WANTED for the things that you want i.e. a washing machine and TAKEN to let everyone know that what you have previously offered has already been taken

So I know on freecycle you can get anything even cars but you wouldn’t believe my surprise when I saw the below listing.

All I can say is wow things must be really getting bad out there….this person is using freecycle to pimp their daughter!

If you cant read it or see the image says

WANTED: Nice boyfriend for daughter
Where have all the nice men gone??? 23 year old daughter, very pretty blonde
hair blue eyes and clever - has had heart broken by falling for the wrong ones.
If anyone knows of kind, tall man 23 - 30 years old let us know!!

Only some spare leftover men are going to reply. What do you think? The new way to find a man?

LMAO...that's like the movie "Because I Said So" with Diane Keaton. I wonder if the daughter knows what her parents are doing. . . LOL I'm sure she would be quite embarrassed and upset.

I love Freecycle, such a great resource and in these hard economic times it is very essential. Good to see people being resourceful LOL.

@ CurvyGurl, yeah it would be really shameful.

@ ShonaVixen, gosh I still cant believe you are leaving the blog world, glad I could help, freecycle rocks.

@ E.M.H, that’s hilarious, imagine if the daughter didn’t know!

@ Ondo Lady, glad to see there are other freecyclers out there!

@ MilesPerHour, yeah someone will answer I guess, but what type of man would they be lol

@ the.kisser, you know it is probably someone really dodgy, anyone that answers is probably dodgy as well.
