AUSTIN, TX – Attention ladies looking for Mr. Right.

An Austin man, supposedly named Romeo Rose, says he is ready for romance. On a dating ad posted on his website, Sleepless in Austin (which has now been taken down), Romeo proudly that declared romance is the air he breathes.  And love is the only thing that drives him.

Ready to spend his nights alone no longer, he even offered to pay an up-to $2500 finder’s fee for Mrs. Right.

But there are a few qualifications. You could say Romeo wrote-up some less-than-Shakespearean requirements.

Things like:

  • I will not date a black girl. I don’t care if she looks like Halle Berry…
  • I like a girl that dresses on the conservative side. Not like a slut, and not anything weird.
  • I prefer a woman that has never had children, because having kid’s does ruin a woman’s body often times.

Romeo appears getting more flak than phone numbers so far.
