This hilarious story recounts how a 70-year-old woman, who wanted to start dating again, almost got what she wanted.


After being single for a long period of time, one woman decided that she wanted to start dating once again. Consequently, she became on a lookout for her new lover.

With years of experience, she had realized that she wanted a specific set of qualities in her new partner. Failure to meet any of these qualities meant, their relationship would fail as well.

So the woman put out an advertisement in the newspaper and specifically wrote down the qualities which she sought in her new lover.

"Husband wanted!" the advertisement that she posted read. "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."


When her doorbell rang the following day of putting out the newspaper advertisement, she couldn’t believe who she saw on the other side.

Standing in front of her door was a gray-haired elderly man, sitting in a wheelchair. He had no arms and legs.

The woman gave a surprised look. “Are your seriously hoping for me to consider you as my partner? You don’t even have legs.”

The old man smiled. “But that’s exactly what your newspaper advertisement said you wanted. I have no legs so I cannot run around you!”


“Okay,” she said, “But you also don’t have any arms.” 

“Therefore, I cannot beat you,” the old man replied calmly.

The woman then raised her one eyebrow. “Then tell me this. Are you still good in bed?”

The old man leaned back a little on his wheelchair and flashed her a big, confident smile. “I rang the doorbell, didn’t I?”
