Brutally Honest Personals
It's common knowledge that personal ads take liberties with the truth. People are trying to sell themselves, and they're rarely going to do that by telling the unvarnished truth (same goes for job resumes). Which is why it's refreshing to see Esquire
hosting Brutally Honest Personals
. Kind of like an anti-hoax, you might say. These people don't hold back any punches. Though, of course, my naturally cynical nature immediately began to suspect that these ads may be erring too much the other way... inventing grim descriptions for comedy's sake. And are these people using their real name? Are they even real people? I guess the only way to find out would be to try and get a date with one of them.
