Funny story: 70 year old widow puts a personal ad in the newspaper

Getting into the dating game can be a tricky business, especially if you haven’t been single in ages. Once you start seeing people, remember to be open to new things and not to judge people too quickly.

That exactly what happened to the 70 year old widow in this story that I found earlier today. She was dismayed when she saw who had rung the doorbell… but she definitely wasn’t expecting the reply she got.

A 70 year old widow thought it was time to remarry, so she decided to put a personal ad in the local newspaper.

It read:

“Looking for a husband! I’m looking for a man in his seventies, who isn’t violent, who won’t run around with women, and who is great in bed. If you are interested, come meet me in person.”

The next day, she heard the doorbell ring. She went to open the front door, and was dismayed when she was met by a man in a wheelchair who didn’t have any arms or legs.

The man said, “I’m here about the ad you put in the paper.”

The woman raised her eyebrows. She said, “You can’t be serious. Look at you, you don’t have any legs!

The elderly gentleman just smiled. “That’s true, but that means I won’t run around with other women.”

She reluctantly nodded, but then objected, “But you don’t have any arms either!”

The old man smiled again. “That means that I’ll never hit you!”

The woman replied, “Well, I guess that’s true.”

She looked him up and down and cleared her throat. “So, are you still good in bed?”

The man leaned back and said with a smirk on his face, “How do you think I rang the doorbell?”
