What are you willing to do to meet your one true love? Or someone who will be fun to hang out with for a couple of months, maybe?

Emmanuel Fredenrich, a 20-year-old from Switzerland who is currently living in Manhattan, was willing to buy a Facebook ad which links to his dating profile.

The ad, which targeted women ages 18 to 22 in the Manhattan area, only set the self-described “billionaire” back $196.78 — an amount that could pay for 18 months of eHarmony’s services.

“I just like doing crazy things,” Fredenrich told the New York Post. “I hate boring, and I like laughing.”

Fredenrich describes himself as an “Instagram influencer” and the CEO of a health-supplement company called Nutrition Optimale, which some YouTube users have branded as a scam.

While you can read his dating profile yourself, (the strikethroughs, he said, is to mark sarcasm), some highlights include being 6 foot 4, which he later admitted is a lie (he’s only 6 foot 1), he works from home and enjoys travel, and he’s incredibly picky when it comes to women.

His ideal woman would be involved in media or advertising, stays fit, and enjoys adventures — and apparently, the ad is succeeding. Fredenrich said that he’s received 500 completed application forms in the first 24 hours of running the ad. So if this sounds like the man of your dreams, you should probably try to get your application in sooner rather than later.

However, since he’s only 20, he says that marriage is not something he’s particularly interested in at the moment. Regardless, feel free to slide into these DMs, ladies.
