Dear Anna, I am a 45-year-old woman. I have come to a place in my life where I am perpetually single. While I continue to try to meet “someone.” I am starting to think in a pragmatic way. I have physical needs. I have had one “buddy with benefits,” but I found I got too attached and became needy.

That was the title of the Craigslist ad Skip Tramontana wrote in five minutes while eating breakfast at the Bongo Room on Tuesday. It was one of many ads the single dad put up trying to sell some extra stuff to pay the nanny.
