A modern-day Romeo, looking for love in all the wrong places, has hired a roadside billboard in an attempt to land himself a date.

Mark Rofe, 30, was fed up with the rigmarole of the dating app game so he decided to take matters into his own hands by buying the sign.

The British man paid $800 for the massive billboard along a Manchester road, that’s complete with a picture of the lothario.

His image is accompanied by the tagline “Single? Date Mark” – there’s no messing around here it seems.

“This could be the sign you are waiting for,” the billboard also states.
