An estimated 2-3 feet of snow is due in the NYC area, a storm that officials are calling “historic.” So why not take advantage and try to fall in love?

One ad from a guy states:

I’m talking endless movies, cookies, whiskey and red wine, occasional work on a strictly as-needed basis, potential igloo-making in a private garden and making out.

(FYI, NSA = No Strings Attached.)

A lot of the ads are NSFW, but here’s a pretty great one (IN ALL CAPS!):
