Let’s face it. Yes, social media gives us access to so many people, but that doesn’t mean it’s any easier to find the perfect person to fall in love with.
So, what should someone do when the odds are not in their favor and they're desperate for a companion?
Well, one Kansas man has decided to think outside the box and offer $25,000 to anyone who can help him find a girlfriend.
Bachelor Jeff Gebhart told CBS affiliate KCTV that he is tired of dating the traditional way and despises online dating.
"Well think about it, if you're in a happy marriage, what monetary value could you ever place on meeting the right person ... ever?" the 47-year-old told the outlet. "My time and frustration and disappointment definitely is worth some sort of dollar figure but that was roughly what I'd spend in dating."
Gebhart has been planning this for several months now. The entrepreneur has gone as far as creating a dating website to show everyone he’s serious.
And just in case you think he’s fibbing, the top of his website reads, “Find me a girlfriend and I’ll pay you $25,000*. Seriously.”
The site has everything you need to know about Gebhart, including a two-minute-long video detailing what he’s looking for, his hobbies and even reviews from his friends and family.
For those wanting to help Gebhart find love and score the $25,000 payday, know there are rules:
- A potential match must “exclusively” date Gebhart consecutively for a year (the “Initial Dating Period”) before any payment is made, according to his website.
- After the year has been completed, Gebhart will make five payments of $5,000 each to the person that referred the date. The first payment will be paid within 30 days following the last day of the Initial Dating Period, with the remaining four payments to be paid each year thereafter on the same date and month of the original payment.
- If the romantic relationship ends, Gebhart does not owe any money to the person that referred the woman, other than what has already been paid.
*NOTE – self-nominated woman are not eligible for any payment from Gebhart
While it may be an unconventional way to find love, Gebhart hopes it will be just the thing to help him find his sweetheart.
