    Default This is really creepy

    In my opinion, this is pretty creepy stuff. What is your opinion of the wording in this "employment" ad ?

    Live in Riding Companion/Business Secretary

    I can offer a very good living arrangement on an 80 acre horse farm for the right woman. Winters here are more like a New England springtime, it does get very hot sometimes but my farm is just 6 miles from the beach. You must be honest and trustworthy, a faithful Christian, slender and energetic enough to go horseback riding regularly year round, educated and smart enough to enjoy intelligent conversation. If you also have office working skills and are willing to help out with my small business the free living arrangement could elevate to a paid employment.An entrepreneurial woman could start her own horseback riding and childrens/beginners lessons business here if she likes. Please only apply if you are totally single and unattached.

    I found the original ad, which was removed and had a bit more information on it about the job and place. It just looks like a not-so-subtle personals ad. Probably a quid-pro-quo arrangement which, would likely involve sex or a relationship, depending on what the actual motive of the ad placer is. There are many women who would go for an arrangement like that but I suspect it probably doesn't work anyway since it's been up for a while.

    Yeah, a giggle for me today!!!!!!

    What if he's really rich and good looking?

    Well the Horse and Hound has an advert in the back of the magazine for a company called infidelities. They offer a discreet and professional service no matter what your situation.

    Guess they run mostly a cash business considering that name on a credit card reciept or a check leaves nothing to the imagination.

    lol... he only said "SLIM ENOUGH" to go horseback riding. Heck I think that just means your butt has to fit in a saddle...or if you go it bareback, that you're light enough for a horse to carry you! lmao Those chubby draft horses are comfy bareback- he better be careful what he wishes for!!!! lol

    ...it would be tempting if it wasn't so creepy... lol

    I bet the ad was removed because he got hundreds of responses

    If a man is straight, rides, has horse property, and is so bereft of, er, social opportunities that he has to write an ad like that, there's a REASON WHY. Closet full of human heads. Really weird religious hangups. Really really uptight. Strange sexual habits. Etc.

    There is ALWAYS a reason.

    'Christian" + 'live in' + 'only if totally single and unattached'?

    Um, I am a Christian - and I wouldn't want to have to stand in front of Jesus Christ and explain that ad! Live in farm help, OK. 'you must consent to be my live in girlfriend sight unseen', nnoooooo......

    I love how his hands are showing to let us know not married! duh.

    Also, where is the cross around his neck?

    Hey, its a lonely world out there, and if you work hard, and then come home and play hard, it isn't that easy to meet a person of interest.

    But, the ad does sound creepy, half personal ad/half employment ad. So, its confusing, and I would bet he is too...wants it, doesn't want it, etc

    I would eat my hat if the poster of this ad were female. Sorry, not buying, Steif. ;-)

    I’ll bet he’s got raging halitosis and/or crotch crickets, he picks his nose, has dirty fingernails and a comb-over and suffers from a red, scaly skin rash all over his body. A treat, to be sure!
