I know google ads are meant to reflect your browsing history but for some reason recently I have been getting a lot of dating Russians ads.

 

I have never looked at dating sites/russian sites or any other combination of sites that I can think of that would have google think this is the ad for me.

 

 

The ads are quite big and suggestive... 

 

I know I can stop all ads by subscribing, but is there a way that the ads could be made more worksafe?

I the usual girl from Russia. I to search for serious relations. I to want to find only thing for myself the man which is capable to grow fond of me with all my strangenesses and whims. It will be pleasant for me, if you write to me. Here ask to tell about itself a little. As I have already told, I the usual girl. To me 31 year, I to work as the dentist. Friends speak, that I the beautiful, clever, brought up girl. I do not know, whether so it. It seems to me, that it is better to them to judge me from the party. I have one lack, I little bit whimsical girl. That's all, likely, that I can tell about myself.

 

Let us know if you find a good one! tongue-out

it knows what you like to see and presents them in the ads.
