Friday Fun: Want a Part-time Job Managing Someone Else’s Relationship?

Are you looking for an “interesting” way to make a little extra cash? Perhaps this gig’s for you:

Hey guys! My name’s Aaron, and I’m dating an awesome girl.

I’m a consultant who works in Jersey, and she runs a PR company out of Brooklyn. We came out strong with some amazing dates and set the bar pretty high, but we are both extremely busy, and can’t keep up with our dates.

I am looking for a virtual assistant who can manage my dating schedule, write messages, plan dates, send reminders, etc. Other odd jobs may be considered depending on your available and my need.
She’s seeking an assistant as well, you will be working closely together.

Preferably the person would have a great sense of humor, be super creative, and be able to coordinate through multiple outlets (telephone, e-mail, text, twitter, tumblr, (NOT FACEBOOK), maybe gchat or skype.

The job was posted on Craigslist two weeks ago, but something tells me it might still be open…

    I saw this on your FB post but I think that this is hilarious. Perhaps he should be hiring a time management specialist or something similar instead to get his life a little less busy…

    They should hire people to go on dates for them. That way they could have all sorts of amazing dates all the time. I could do that. I’ll just send them a picture from their date – SHE THINKS YOU’RE CUTE & FUNNY!!! … YOU ARE HAVING A GREAT TIME!!!

      this is exactly where my mind went too!

      haha… so funny. honestly, though, just the actual job -figuring out cool places for people to go on dates- sounds like a fun job. i think someone should create a business that does it. they would obviously have atleast one customer! lol

        Sounds like you might be attached to the job. Have you ever seen the devil wears prada?

        This movie ran through my mind when I read the job description LMAO.


        I will pass on that… I’ll pass on a friendship too lol

    With that description he should be worried about a male assistant stealing his potential girl friend…

    Ummmm… wow. Seems like this guy is well to do if he plans to pay for an assistant for “creativity” and date reminders.

    Dude… that’s what the new phones can do. Set an alarm on your phone “date with best girl ever in 1 hour” and you’re all set.

    Kind of sad, sounds a bit like a creeper

      Maybe not a creeper, but that submission REEKS of arrogance. Good lord.

    “Other odd jobs may be considered depending on your available and my need.”

    Several very inappropriate images came to mind.

    Wendy, you should have a Kooky Kraigslist feature. This ad (thought it might actually be real) reminds me of the yoga mat ad – you know, by the guy who used his mat once for Bikram and was not fan.

      Okay, that was freaking hilarious. I hadn’t seen it.

      One of my old secretaries would send me links to kooky craiglist finds, like people looking for dates, not weird furniture. They were so hysterical. So hysterical, in fact, that I didn’t fire her for quite a while even though she spent half the day on the internet looking for funny listings to send her boss. lol.

      I had already read that one. But I’m going to read it again. Because me laughing hysterically to myself in my cube makes my coworkers nervous. šŸ™‚

    Gee, I wish I had these types of problems…. Sigh….

    Why does this ad for an “assistant” feel like a recruiting post for an “escort service” to me? There’s something oddly pimp-n-ho-ish about this one….
