Commenters Looking for Marriage (in All the Wrong Places)

[NOTE: The following posts took place over the span of nearly 6 months, as very confused but apparently very eager men searched for spouses on the wrong blog. Phone numbers and emails have been edited for privacy.]

I don’t understand how much interested/desperate some of my commenters are for marriage that they are not only looking for a spouse online, they are asking about it on a page about forced marriage.

Here are some samples.

That’s the most direct marriage proposal I have ever heard of. Especially since Sant5osh seems to be a guy. Do you think he knows I am a guy?

i am 29 years maile i want to marrige any poor girl can you help me this mater xxx[…]xxx than you
If he is a plant, why does he want to get married? But his intentions seem good since he wants to marry “any poor girl.” Or does he mean that any girl who consents to marry him must have poor luck?

i am looking a beautiful girl who marry me and settle me on his country.i am a poor gay , handsome and smart, good looking, contact me on my mail address ######@yahoo.com
A gay man wanting to marry a beautiful girl! And that too for immigration purposes. Plus he is poor but a “prince.” Talk about fraud on so many levels! He doesn’t mention which country he would like the girl to be from. Here is a chance for the Nigerian 419ers to branch out.

A 23 year old guy looking for a girl who could be 12 years his senior. How often does that happen in Pakistan? And he gave his cell phone number. Any of my readers in Pakistan adventurous enough to call him and then comment here about it?

how are you im a good man im looking for woman for marry
At least, Bassem had the courtesy to ask how I am doing before going on about his desire for marriage. It seems he’s a simple man since all he’s looking for is a woman, no age or beauty restrictions, no passport desires, not even a requirement for the woman to be alive.

Did these guys even read what the post was all about, or do they just grope for anything that has the word marriage on it?

Arafat: I don’t think they read the post. They probably arrived searching for “marriage.”

People its quite alright that you are all well bred and brought up guys and girls but we must look at these comments in some other sense. these people were probably brought up in as clean environs as you all were and for them this is an effort to get out of that mess trhrough a short cut that is on the mind of every Pakistani these days. it is a shame yet i wouldn’t blame them completely.

[NOTE: I have to admit that the following post is my favorite. There's just so much -- what's the term -- subtext here. Grace]

**My name is Imran Ahmed and I am working as computer Administrator in multinational company in Saudi Arabia.
My mails address Emotional_loversincer@#####. And my mobile number is #####. all time you contact with me.
My date of birth is 1979. And sign is Sagittarius. Normally I am a caring person, and thus like be in caring people who want share and like to be shared. In my opinion friends a precious assets of one’s life a person. With friends is like tree in a for away. Remote place where no one it there to enjoy its shade and fruits and a friend with out trust is like a fake currency note. This has no look of a note but can’t buy any thing. So I believe friendship and trust are like tree and fruits.
I love nature with all its beauties and purity. I like to see things in there. Pure forms. I believe that in humans the real beauty does not lie in apparent look but its lies in one inner self. I guess are not behind the face beauty but I love inner beauty of person regard less of appearance.
I belong to a middle class family. Which believe in moral values of caring money? I belong to small family from Rawalpindi Pakistan. In friends I love to share and always trust my friends. I love and care about trust for the friends. Well what else can I tell you about me? If we remain in communication we would learn more about each other. Also please feel to ask any thing and I hope as a friend if you dislike any thing in me or do come yours comments.
Sorry to take a much of your time. Hope to hear from you soon.
A friend Imran.

**These guys are an absolute disgrace to Pakistan. As a matter of fact, Pakistan itself is a disgrace to the face of this world. PAKISTAN - GET A LIFE!
Note: I am no white / black to hate Paki brownies, I am a brownie myself and use to be Paki before got immigration on SKILLS basis (not on marriage basis) you losers. So it is not a racist post.
