In my experience, a solo drinking session probably isn't the best time to tell the world you're ready for love.
When you are ready, don't rush into penning your ad.
By asking a couple of choice questions an agency is able to create a brief statement about you that is then used to make your small ad.
It's a good way of getting the job done, but is it effective?

The truth is that no matter how witty/clever the ad is, and how lovely a person might sound on the phone, the reality is only revealed when you meet that person for the first time.
My 4 most amusing encounters all started from small ads followed by a number of chats on the phone with apparently nice, normal men. 1) Turned up in a pale grey nylon blazer with assorted stains and missing teeth.
