Personals meme

Via megamole, a cute meme: the game is to write a personals ad for yourself which is as unappealing as possible, without lying or making it obvious that you're trying to put people off.
An attachment that makes us freer?
Intelligent, full-figured 30-ish spinster seeks independent-minded companion for intellectual as well as physical stimulation. You should be sympathetic to, or preferably engaged in, a religiously committed yet non-traditional Jewish lifestyle; prepared to move abroad to pursue the relationship; and above all, childfree. This is an equal opportunities ad and does not discriminate on grounds of sex or gender, nationality or ethnic background.
In this actual reality, I'm not looking (and it's probably a good thing, considering the requirements I enumerated), but composing a joke personals ad is more fun than the review I'm supposed to be working on. Writing it did make me realize that it's really hard to write bi personals ads; generally they have to go in the "women seeking women" or "women seeking men" section, and even if you can get round that it's hard to avoid presenting as a HBB selling herself as a fetish object.
