A company CEO has posted an advert online looking for a soulmate -and he’s willing to pay $10,000 to whoever points him in the right direction.
SelfHacked.com founder Joe Cohen is also offering up a reward of $2,000 to anyone who introduces him to another person who can hook him up with a long-term partner.
The 30-year-old, who lives in California, said he will only hand over the money if he’s with the girl for at least four months, however, he has a very long list of things he’s looking for in a girlfriend.
The girl must be intelligent, high on conscientiousness, low on neuroticism, easy-going and preferably Jewish.
Joe is also looking for someone who is open-minded, into health, is honest, has enthusiasm for life and is willing to live in California (or somewhere with good weather).
If the woman is not based in California, Joe claims he will pay for her airfare, set her up in an Airbnb and financially support her until she gets a job.
His ideal woman won’t have kids, will want to settle down and have kids in five years and be aged between 20 and 30 and under 5’9.
As for Joe, he loves traveling, meeting new and interesting people and “poking at social conventions, mainly for the entertainment value”.
Joe claims he grew up with a lot of disadvantages and while he managed to overcome them, he hasn’t found that somebody special to share his life with.
About a year ago he came out of a long-term relationship with “an absolutely wonderful woman” and he now wants to find someone to settle down and be “comfortable” with.
He got to the stage where he had dated around five girls in the space of six months and realized that online dating just wasn’t working for him.
Joe got a hair transplant, laser eye surgery, bought a Mercedes Benz, got a whole new wardrobe and started working out.
For a brief period, he even tried ‘seeking arrangement’, which is a sugar daddy site, where he paid women to date him.

He thought it would be an easier way for him to meet women and go on dates with them.
However, in the end, he put a stop to it because he found the women 'materialistic'.
That’s when he thought up the social experiement of putting an ad on his own website to find the perfect partner.
While Joe thought it might be a massive fail, he never could have expected the respone he would receive.
Since posting it online, Joe’s ad has been viewed over 3,000 times by potential love interests and he has already received over 400 messages.
