The LRB Personals

How have I never come across the Personals in the London Review of Books before?

Actually, that's a silly question. I've almost never read the LRB and even less often do I read Personals but having now come across them, they're an absolute joy to browse:

Female, 34. All own limbs. Seeks man with low priorities.

What I really want is a workshop with a lathe, but my flat’s not big enough. Desk worker M, 51, seeks F for turning.

Attractive 40 something F seeks solid, suited, salaried M. Fortunately I am none of these.

My therapist has given me such a good rate I can afford to indulge my bouts of infidelity and still deal elegantly with my guilt. Attached but unfaithful London male 60 seeks female counterpart. I promise an intensity of sexual joy unexpected in the LRB.

Sadly, I only discover them when apparently they are to be no more.
