For women unlucky in love, there’s now a new and much less difficult way to find your man. A shop has opened in Paris where single men put themselves on display and ladies can browse the items until they find Mr Right.
French dating site AdoptAGuy has opened a travelling store where men are literally on the shelves. Looking like Ken dolls, the men put themselves on display in human-sized boxes to be ogled by the ladies.
One passer-by, Amandine Camporro, said that the store was a brilliant idea:
"I think it's great. It's different. For once we have a choice and we don't have to put up with the trials and tribulations of seduction so it's a really great idea. It's different. It proves that the guys can make fun of themselves and the ones who are here have a sense of humour and that's different."
The AdoptAGuy website does things a little differently to regular dating websites. Free for women, men advertise themselves on the site through putting up profile details and can only communicate with women if she chooses him.
After ten days the store will move on to Brussels, before heading to Lausanne, Toulouse and Lyon.
