Clearly by its cheerful bouncy tone and the fact they are both laughing at the end, it intends to convey that the relationship is affirmed. Of course, a cynic (or a realist) will conclude it's destroyed, but that would require a level of self awareness on the part of both members of the couple that is not apparent in the song. They're both extremely shallow.

Actually, she's the one who put an ad in the personals first. He reads it while she is sleeping beside him, and responds to it in kind.
