Husband No. 1

‘FORGET dial-a-bride and now consider ad-a-man.

Helen Zhou, a Chinese woman living in Sydney, has spent A$5,000 (about £2,000) advertising for a husband on a billboard outside a cinema in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

”People are happy to date but they don’t want any commitment, only temporary relationships,” says Zhou.

The ad – ”HUSBAND WANTED” – lists Zhou’s preferences. He should be no older than 45, healthy, a non-smoker and drinker, Caucasian, comfortably well-off and blessed with a good sense of humor.

”I’m not fussy,” said Zhou. “I guess I want a traditional sort of person, not really flash – an old fashioned kind of guy, not one who spends every cent and doesn’t worry about tomorrow.”’
