Crikey personals

Wanted: more groupies
Be warned, gentle female Crikey readers, before you respond to the personal ad Christian Kerr posted yesterday in Crikey.

First, if you respond to his ad, Christian will forever refer to you as "a groupie". Second, if he sends you a photo, it will almost certainly be one where he "had makeup and control over the lighting". It may well also be from before he started growing his all-over curly mullet.

Take note of the picture (Christian is on the left, wearing the suit, entrertaining in-house philosopher Charles Richardson and Crikette Sophie Vorrath) from last year's Crikey Christmas party.

We also have to question the "GSOH" - but I suppose it's all a matter of perspective.

It is a bit sad that the once-fiesty publication is reduced to printing personal ads for its remaining political correspondents...

In case you missed it:

Christian Kerr, Crikey's political correspondent, writes: ... Just by the way I'm 40, 6'2", 85 kilos (need to drop three), childless, unlucky in love, N/S, GSOH, photo available on request…

I am sure I have seen the guy on the right at some sort of Melbourne University Liberal Club meeting/function

Or maybe he was a returning officer in the student elections

Me confused!

Welcome to the blogging world, my friend :-)

Zoo? That would make me the zoo keeper, I guess, and Hugo my prize exhibit?

Or perhaps Hugo is the zoo keeper and I am an exotic creature...

Might one inquire, Mr Upland, as to what you thought he was going to look like?

My image of Christian Kerr was more suave and debonair, in keeping with his James Bond inspired pseudonym...

It is a bad photo, Niall, and on reflection my comments about the poor lad's hair were rude and I unreservedly retract them. But it's true he's no James Bond.

Christian does normally look better than that. Quite a lot better than that - and he is actually pretty suave when it comes to his dress sense. The word stylish might even be used. We were being mean because he was nasty to me on the telephone and I was upset (among other crimes), but as Hugo said, on reflection it was unnecessarily personal.

As for this blog I think it's very cool. I often browse pictures of people and last time I found a site where you can find dating personals and rate many photos of singles who live in your city. Adult Singles

Young people feel comfortable with the community dimensions of their faith; therefore, they are willing to explore christian dating sites for a mate. Websites devoted to helping christians find other single christians are frequently visited by christians who are searching for a christian friend or something more. Christian Personals Advice
