Single Man Used A Billboard, Found A Date On Valentine’s Day

Can’t seem to find a date? How about trying what Mark Rofe did? The 30-year-old man, after being single for a year, decided to pay £425 so he can advertise himself on a 3m high and 6m billboard.

The massive sign in Manchester featured a photo of him lounging on his side and says: "Single? Date Mark. This could be the sign you've been waiting for."

Surprisingly, thousands of people expressed interest in going out with him. A man in China even told him, “I give you pleasure and many moneys. I own big shoe company.”

Mark eventually went on a date on Valentine’s Day. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out.

"She's a lovely, interesting and clever person and anyone would be lucky to date her.
“But we both felt we weren't a good fit for each other."

But he’s not gonna give up yet.

… he has launched a website – – where applicants can get in touch, and has launched a crowdfunding website for more billboards.
He added: "If at first you don't succeed, buy more billboards.”

What are your thoughts about this one?
