A 30-year-old UK man from Northamptonshire put himself on sale in an advertisement on Facebook after he had no luck with dating apps for ten long years.
A lorry driver by profession, Alan Ian Clayton came up with the unique idea to search for a partner after disappointment with traditional ways.
In the ‘Items for Sale’ on the local classified ads page on Facebook he put himself for sale.
On September 10, he posted on the Facebook website, listing himself as ‘Free’ with multiple photographs of himself. He also wrote a funny and honest caption with it.
“Hello there ladies. I’m Alan. I’m 30 years old. I’m looking for a lovely lady to talk to, maybe more, as I got a few weddings to go to and don’t want to go alone. Lol. I tried dating sites not had any luck so thought I give this a go. Lol.”
He said he received a lot of messages from women and he stayed up till wee hours of the morning replying to all those good luck messages.
Frank, Alan’s dad after getting to know what his son told Metro, “He’s a really good lad. He’d help anyone. He’s very, very obliging. Anything we ask him to do he’ll do. ‘We certainly want to see him happy. He can cook, does all his washing and cleaning, takes our dog Mindy for walks. He’s a brilliant uncle, he gets on really well with his sister Millie.”
