A man who held up a sign advertising that he was looking for a girlfriend is now getting married six years on. You can watch a video he released at the time explaining the benefits of being his girlfriend below:
Back in 2015, Adam Sanyo was stomping around London and Cambridge bearing a massive board that read: "Hi there stranger, my name is Adam and I am looking for a girlfriend."
The sign continued: "I work in an environment where 85 per cent of my colleagues are male so I did not have much of a chance to find love there.
"But here I am and it is time to put this method to the test."
Alongside the sign, he released a video detailing his weight, height, and saying he had a BA in English and Linguistics.
Throughout the video he made a list of his must-haves, saying he wasn't bothered by looks, but needed someone aged 22 to 30, with a degree, fully employed, and with two years of 'relationship experience' already under their belt.
He ended the video by quipping: "See you, my future girlfriend!"
Interested applicants were advised to use #LFGirlfriend on Twitter or send Adam an email.
Since then, Adam's fortunes have changed and he is set to marry his fiancée Eszter, 26, in October.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, it wasn't the sign that won Eszter over, with the couple meeting at a party instead.
Adam, now 32, proposed to Eszter after lockdown, when the pair spent a whole 10 months together.
He said: "I felt that since we managed to endure this very difficult period without any major fights, then we should get married.
"Fortunately, she said yes to my proposal, and we are currently in the final stages of our wedding preparation."
Adam said the idea came about from having a feeling of loneliness, after a long term relationship with his ex came to an end.
He said: "I was single for about two years at that point. My one and only long-term relationship ended in June 2013, and I was feeling kind of lonely.
"I moved to Cambridge in March 2015 from London, and I did not have any friends I could meet on weekdays.
"Therefore, I decided that I should improve my dating chances and the creation of this sign seemed like a good idea to meet many people in a short time period.
Reflecting on the experience, Adam added: "I think it was a great experiment, because it showed me how people react to my openness and my unique approach to dating.
"Even though the sign did not work at the time, I am happy that I tried using this approach to dating, but at the same time I am glad that I do not need to go on random dates anymore, because I found my future wife through our shared interest in politics."
