82-Year-Old Bachelor Is Using A Sign To Snag A Wife
These days, most folks on a search for love turn to Match.com or a similar internet dating site. If you’re a nudist like this dude, though, you might need to try a less traditional tactic.Â
82-year-old Sandy McCullogh is a little more old school, and so he decided to take a more handwritten approach to his search for a wife.
The Corvallis, Oregon man walks around town with a sign around his neck that reads “Wanted: A Wife” followed by his requirements for a spouse, which include: being over 60, living in the same town, loving books and having a great sense of humor.
McCulloch, a published author, got the idea from a friend who is aÂ hospitalÂ greeter who told him that hospitals are full of single women looking for husbands. (Use that intel in whichever way you deem fit.) He first debuted his sign at a local fair, and it was a big hit.
âThe response was rather amazing and delightful,â he said. âItâs the closest Iâve ever come to being a rock star in a room full of people.â
So far McCulloch has gotten a lot ofÂ approvalÂ for his novel approach to finding a mate, but he hasn’t met any potential wives. The only woman he spent aÂ substantialÂ amount of time talking to sinceÂ institutingÂ the sign strategy turned out to be under his age requirement.
âIn all honesty, I donât know if this will lead to anything,” McCulloch explained. “If nothing else, it has been a lot of fun.â Old dudes are just the best.
