Lonely Man Tries to Find Love by Plastering Posters of Himself All Over New York

Dan-Perino
He’s already got one date lined up, apparently…

Lonely New Yorker Dan Perino got so tired of traditional dating methods that he’s trying something new and unconventional in order to find love. He’s plastering posters of himself all over Manhattan in a bid to find the woman of his dreams.

It might sound desperate, but he insists that he’s not. The 50-year-old simply believes that it’s a better way of meeting women. The black-and-white posters consist of a large photograph of Dan, with the words ‘Looking for a Girlfriend’ below. He’s currently pasting them all over the city – on post boxes, lamp posts, and parking meters.

Dan claims that he received hundreds of calls only a few hours after the fliers went up. Some women were genuinely interested, while others thought the posters were a joke. As strange as it sounds, the posters idea seems to have worked – Dan already has one date set up.

And he has no plans to stop any time soon; he says he’s going to put up 500 fliers every day for the next 30 days. His needs are quite simple – “I’m looking for an average woman that likes to do the same things that I do,” he said. “I want to find a more meaningful relationship.”

People’s reactions to Dan’s initiative have been mixed. Some think he’s crazy, while others believe he might be on to something. “I think it’s kind of weird and a little scary,” said one woman. “I wouldn’t date him.” But Dan is quite confident that he won’t be single much longer. “Within a week, I’ll have a girlfriend,” he asserted.

I’d say Dan at least has a higher chance of finding the right woman than Robert Darling, the lonely bachelor walking the streets of Manhattan in search of a wealthy woman willing to take care of him.

Yeah, I’d say that’s fairly likely to be the case…

Well, I wish him luck. 🙂

    Maybe moving out of NYC would help.Dan tremendously. Matter o’ fact, that’s an excellent idea on GPs, whether or not you’re looking for love.

    Given American women’s proclivities towards thug-chasing, his method probably reminded women of a ‘wanted poster’.

    Seriously, what kind of woman picks up men from seeing them on a poster on a phone pole? Sadly—most of them (sigh).

    Ha! 🙂

    Alas, such is the state today of much of what we used to call ‘the fairer sex’…
