This Guy Says He Will Pay $10,000 To Anyone Who Can Find Him A Girlfriend


Posted on

No, seriously. He has set up a website where people can submit their friends or family members to go on a date with him. If the relationship lasts for six months, he says he will reward the referrer with cold, hard cash.

You told BuzzFeed News he got the idea to start the website after moving to Birmingham and going on a string of dates. He said he began thinking of ways to improve the dating process, which he called "monstrously inefficient."

"I try to think about sort of novel ways to address age-old problems," he said.


The website has only been up a week, and You has already received a "deluge" of submissions.

He said he has been happy to see that at least half of the submissions are either from people who are submitting themselves, and are ineligible for the money, or said they don't want the cash.

His ultimate goal is simple: He said he is just hoping to "find somebody really great and be their boyfriend."

He added that the cash offer is really not that odd if you think about what you're willing to do to find your soulmate.

"People are willing to pay a huge amount of money for a lot of things that are a lot less important," he said.
