There's a 30-year-old guy named Mark Rofe in Sheffield, England . . . and back in January, he spent $550 to rent a billboard to try to find himself a girlfriend. It said, quote, "Single? Date Mark. This could be the sign you've been waiting for."
And somehow, it actually worked. A 28-year-old woman reached out to Mark through the website he put on the billboard.
He says she reached out, quote, "before it got any mainstream media attention" . . . and they started talking.
He wound up going on a date with her, as well as two other women who applied, but he connected with her the most . . . and now they're in a relationship and in love.
