When trying to find love in the real world maybe even with the help of online-dating seemed to fail him, 38-year-old Paul Gutierrez from Illinois is taking matters to find love into his own hands and pockets. Opening a website entitled, Can Anyone Find Me A Wife, Paul—or to some ‘Handsome Paul’—is offering up half of his annual income to anyone who can help him find that special someone so he can make her his wife.
Going online and creating his own “search for love” website, Handsome Paul posts why single women should love. There are a total of 38 reasons why the opposite sex should love him. Along with these reasons, Handsome Paul has gathered and posted for the world a collection of awkward stories about his quest into finding his one true love, a quest which has so far failed.
His quest for love has led Handsome Paul to numerous dating websites, and unfortunately no hits came of them. He even browsed though the options of ordering a bride via mail, which also didn’t pan out since the bride-to-be escaped through a window during the interview. On his website, Handsome Paul declares himself a hopeless romantic who just happens to have bad luck when it comes to find loving. Despite his big heart, Handsome Paul believes his bad luck is attributed to bad skin, a not so favorable body, and a lack of money.
When describing how he viewed his potential to one day tying the knot, Handsome Paul proclaims on his site that, “it would be a real-life beauty and the beast marriage…Minus the fact I’m not a wavy-haired prince with a castle and servants…More like a balding drifter with a future mobile home and hamsters.” Handsome Paul also adds that if a lucky girl was to come his way, she can expect to be his very first girlfriend, “I’ve never had a girlfriend in my life…Ever…though I thought I did once…that is until her boyfriend showed up.”
“Most people probably think I’m an epic loser for trying to find a wife like this, not to mention, I don’t have much to offer a woman in regards to money, looks or a career. However, I am very grateful for what I do have and consider myself to be one of the luckiest people alive!” Although he has a not so savvy love life, Handsome Paul does have a hopeful outlook on his life and the fact that he will one day find the right one. Here’s to you Handsome Paul, may your sweet personality bring you someone soon.
