1973 Personals Ad Reminds You Trolling Was a Thing Even in 1973 Man misses girlfriend, or does he?

Ahh, the good old days, when men were men, women were women, the Internet didn't exist and one had to troll at a much slower pace.

According to this personals ad from 1973, found by a Redditor, there was still plenty of shenanigans happening in the hot social media of the day—aka, the newspaper.

These days, of course, men still troll their partners via newspaper personals. They just do it to their current ones, not their exes.
