Craigslist 'Gentleman' Seeking A Date Clearly Doesn't Understand Women, Grammar

Hot on the heels of a deluded doctor's list of crazy list of dating requirements, comes another man looking for love who seriously needs to rethink his methods.

A "professional gentleman" looking for a "worthy and deserving girl" in Antelope Valley, CA seems to have no comprehension of dating etiquette -- or grammar.

In his Craigslist posting, the gentleman in question asks interested women to email him directly if they want more information about him.

IF YOU WANT A RESPONSE, please E-mail (1) your name, (2) your email address, (3) your location (city), (4) your age, (5) your ethnicity and (6) your current & clear photo (within the last 3 months). CURRENT means how you look "today," NOT "yesterday."

This clearly isn't this lothario's first rodeo -- the post includes 28 FAQs about himself and his "process." Someone's clearly been working on finding the girl of his dreams for quite some time.

Here are eight of the most surprising, hilarious and downright alarming things his post includes. (We're also more than slightly confused by his excessive use of quotation marks, but I guess we can't expect Prince Charming to have it all.)

1. "NOTE: I WILL TEST YOU early in the first communications/interactions between us to know if you are real, honest, motivated, serious, etc. Please take this as a fair and friendly prior warning. "

2. "Regardless of the age you tell me, don't be surprised if I ask to see your ID or Birth Certificate to verify."

3. "I also find that most girls tell me they are a 'Good Girl' too or 'Worthy and Deserving' but often that's not the case either."

4. "Relationships are like a full time 'JOB.' It's NOT 'EASY.'"

5. "This also includes the 'possibility' of marriage."

6. "Trust me, I am not like your ex-boyfriend or husband. I'm much better."

7. "Tell me something about yourself that I or other men cannot $$ PURCHASE $$ for a few dollars off the street and you will have my attention. "

8. "I'm in my 30's (Between 30-39). I won't tell you my exact age until we meet so don't ask beforehand."

Just so we're clear: women who respond to this ad can expect to be tested, held to impossible standards, compared to sex workers and "considered" for marriage if they meet all his criteria?

Somehow we don't think he'll be getting too many sincere responses.
