A single man has bought a huge £960 roadside billboard in Manchester asking for a date – following the huge success of a 30-year-old’s similar poster last month.
Andrew Gaskell, from Chester, paid for an advertisement on Regent Road in Salford, and the poster, which he designed himself and shows his beaming features alongside the phrase ‘Single? Date Andrew’, went up on Tuesday.
The self-employed singleton, who doesn’t want to reveal his age, got the idea after hearing on the radio about Mark Rofe – who received thousands of applicants after erecting a billboard to find a date, last month in the Northern city.
Hoping for similar success, Andrew created a website with more information about himself, as well as an email address and Facebook page dedicated to the cause.

His site says: ‘Looking for love, the one, my soul mate, the woman of my dreams! I’m Andrew, 6ft tall, I live in Cheshire, UK, and have businesses in property and recycling.
‘As a businessman since the age of 18, it has been harder to meet the one. I’ve tried online dating, and the traditional ways of meeting people (I have made some good friends along the way).’
But he added: ‘I’ve now taken the scary step and bought billboard advertising at a prime location.’
Claiming he’s ‘friendly, loving, caring, and considerate and intelligent, open minded, sincere and unconventional’, Andrew says he barely drinks and doesn’t smoke.
