Attention Unwed Women Of Wall Street: Area Man Seeks Genesis-Loving Rich Lady To Be His Wife

Robert Darling commutes once a week from his two-bedroom apartment in Bradley Beach, N.J., to seek love in Manhattan, panhandling for affection beneath a sandwich board. ”I’m looking for a wealthy lady to be my wife,” reads his entreaty, written in multi-colored marker…For nearly a decade, he has donned the portable personal advertisement at his three preferred love-seeking locations: the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Columbus Circle and Wall Street. Besides financial security, Darling says his requirements for a lady love are fairly lenient. He wants a smart woman who will make him laugh and enjoys listening to the band Genesis on the audio cassettes he carries with him. And his threshold for wealth is refreshingly lenient, at least by the standards of the posh Manhattan areas where he looks for love: an eligible bachelorette must have a net worth of $750,000, he says. Darling is willing make exceptions for the right person. His sign offers the following caveat: “Ladies Not yet rich but very well off will be considered.” [WSJ]

    I'd rather give my money to the black guy with the "Family killed by ninjas. Need money for kung fu lessons" sign.

    the article continues, "when asked to comment further, Darling declined and left abruptly, explaining that he 'had to return some videotapes.'"

    Out front of the museum he's more likely to get a nice, young, gay design student while the Alex McQ exhit is on.

    I would've had my ass parked at Taco Bell.

  5. Guy who knows irony says:

    ohhhhh so when a guy does it and wears his intentions on a sandwich board to be upfront an honest it's laughable, but when a girl does it and hides her intentions it's ok.
    Got it

    I own a kick-ass apple orchard, and love Genesis -it's my favorite book. Plus I could really use the sandwich board.

    Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe…………. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite.

    This all seemed completely normal and not psychopathic at all until we learned that he carries Genesis cassette tapes with him. Seriously bro – start with a sign asking a rich chick to buy you an ipod, then work your way up to marriage.

    Genesis? How irrelevant. He should try one of the following guaranteed HNW chick magnets:

    A. Supertramp
    B. Pablo Cruise
    C. Loggins & Messina

    Guy who is dating himself because nobody else will
