Apartment Seeks Man
In 2015 I placed the following ad on a popular matchmaking website:
Beautiful & bright, one bedroom apartment in well-maintained heritage West End building seeks male occupant. $600 per month, tchotchkes included.
Apartment is fully furnished, freshly renovated, with new appliances and an adventurous 45 year old, female graphic designer/artist. Rent includes half of a queen-size bed, heat, hydro, cable (and Netflix), use of art space/studio, shared coin operated laundry in the basement, bike storage…and busy-body landlady. DVR pre-set recordings include: Game of Thrones, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, The Walking Dead and Broad City. The apartment is willing to consider swapping out existing furniture (and such) for better furniture (and such). Close to all sorts of amenities…grocery/markets, restaurants, coffee shops, beaches, seawall, Stanley Park, Pride festivities, swimming pools, fireworks… and so much more!
Applicant must enjoy fun, frolicking, board games, food and arty/designy/odd friends, be willing to hand-wash dishes, have manners, a job, and an interest in indulging with the female occupant (popcorn, or what-have-you).
For an appointment to view this lovely West End gem, please send message to firstname.lastname@example.org stating qualifications and availability.
