Auf Craigslist, einer Online-Plattform für Kleinanzeigen aller Art, hat man schon oftmals die ein oder andere Skurrilität gefunden, die dann durchs Internet kursiert wird. Die folgende Annonce jedoch hat uns zutiefst berührt. Denn eine Frau aus Connecticut ist auf der Suche nach einer neuen Partnerin - allerdings nicht für sich, sondern für ihren Liebhaber, da sie an Bauchspeicheldrüsenkrebs erkrankt ist und nicht mehr lange zu leben hat.
Hier ihre Suche im Original-Wortlaut:
Thank you for reading my posting. This is probably the most unusual posting on CL that you will ever read.
My name is Sharon B. For the past five years, I have had a regular ongoing intimate relationship with a wonderful gentleman, "A". He is kind, supportive, funny, and most important of all, very attentive to my sexual needs. This relationship was outside my marriage, and it's a long story, so I'll save it for later communication.
I was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I do not have long to live. I have made peace with my situation. My family has been very supportive, but one of my last regrets is that I will be abandoning my wonderful intimate partner.
He has no idea that I am posting this. I intend to post it on all of the Craig's list categories that might elicit a real response. I would like to find, before I die, a wonderful woman who is worthy of his attention. I will try to persuade him to contact those who I think will treat him as I have, and will forward to them his email address.
Please, in order to cut down on the spam I have to deal with, put SharonB in the subject of your reply.
Thank you. I promise you, it will be worth your while. With love and affection, Sharon
