Newspapers and magazines that take personal advertisements often provide a reply forwarding service; in this case, the text of the advert will include a unique box number and anyone wishing to reply to the advert sends or delivers their reply to the publisher's address in an envelope bearing that number.

The publisher forwards replies in bulk to the advertiser at a given interval, for example each week.

The first letter often describes the relationship state or sexuality of the person: As well as three-letter abbreviations of the format described above, a number of other acronyms and abbreviated words have been popular in personal adverts at different times and in different places.

Before Tinder, Hinge, Bumble, and Ok Cupid, mortals had to navigate the maddening nuances of everyday social rituals to find romance.

(Win some, lose some.) At least, that's what I have to figure after reading this dating profile ad from 1865, in which my Reconstruction Era bae basically made me fall in love with him across the time-space-churned butter continuum (we'll get back to that butter part, because he has words about it and I have ).
