Matrimony Beckons From Billboard

In this era of Internet-based, narrowcast dating services, one individual is taking a decidedly retro, wide-net approach to to finding that special someone.

Dean Morrow, a 44-year-old Orange County, California investment banker has put up a billboard in Los Angeles at the corner of La Cienega and Santa Monica Blvd., reading, in the largest of print, “WIFE WANTED,” along with his picture and website address. Candidates are asked to complete a form on the website, attach a picture and email it to old lonesome Dean.

Morrow says his approach was driven by a desire to come in contact with people that he “otherwise would not have an opportunity to meet in his existing business and social circles.”

Perhaps, being from Orange County, Dean is unaware that he wouldn’t have to put up a billboard to meet women on Santa Monica Blvd.

During the initial two weeks he claims to have had over 1,100 visitors to his site and a number of applications. Morrow said he’s having a great time with the experience and is excited to meet the candidates.

Didn’t Dennis Kucinich go through something like this? Perhaps Dean is secretly involved with a reality show.

Hey, the L.A. billboard thing worked for Angelyne, why not Dean?
