If you’ve been walking around New York City lately, you may very well have seen Dan Perino’s face. Perino, 51, put up literally thousands of flyers across the city stating that he is “looking for a girlfriend.” The flyers are incredibly straightforward. They include a black and white photo of Perino, his phone number and his mission to find a girlfriend.
They’ve also been incredibly effective. Perino sat down with Vice to talk about his romantic endeavors and revealed he has been on 86 dates since he first put the flyers up nine weeks ago. He has yet to find a girlfriend, but he has had a lot of sex from these encounters. Perino said,
I might as well say it. Because I’ve never said it before. I’ve gotten laid… well, 86 dates and I’ve gotten laid… 86 times.
Perino also gets recognized a ton on the street and his face can be seen all across social media. This story has taken on such a life of its own, Perino is currently working with a filmmaker to make a documentary about it.
It also seems like all this fame and sexual success has gone to Perino’s head. He said,
I’m lookin’ for a girlfriend. She’s gotta be smokin’ hot. No old ladies, gotta be 25 to 30s. No 40-year-olds. She’s gotta support me in what I’m doing. If I’m doing a movie, or if I’m doing this documentary, she’ll be there right by my side. So the public won’t see a fugly woman around my arm. I don’t f*ckin’ want that, a fugly woman. Keep ‘em away from me. I want the damn models.
Well, at least he’s honest.
