70-year-old widow’s search for love goes viral with newspaper ad


Jumping back into dating can feel weird, especially if you’ve been out of the game for a while. It’s key to be open-minded and not make snap judgments about people.

I heard a funny story about this: a 70-year-old lady who lost her husband placed an ad in the newspaper because she was looking for a new one. Isn’t that something?

She was chilling at home when suddenly the doorbell rang. She wasn’t expecting anyone, so imagine her surprise when she saw who was outside. Want to know what happened next? Keep reading till the end for a good laugh!

A 70-year-old lady, who felt pretty lonely, thought, “Why not get married again?” So, she placed an ad in her town’s paper which said:

“Husband wanted! Must be in my age group, must not beat me, must not run around on me and must still be good in bed. All applicants please apply in person.”

The following day, she heard the doorbell. Much to her dismay, she opened the door to see a gray-haired gentleman sitting in a wheelchair. He had no arms or legs.

“You’re not really asking me to consider you, are you?” the widow asked: “Just look at you — you have no legs!”

The old gent smiled: “Therefore, I cannot run around on you!”

“You don’t have any arms either!” she snorted.

Again, the old man smiled: “Therefore, I can never beat you!”

She raised an eyebrow and asked intently: “Are you still good in bed?”

The old man leaned back, beamed a big smile and said: “I rang the doorbell, didn’t I?”
