A 29-year-old man from West London, United Kingdom, has gone viral after he erected massive billboards in London, Birmingham and Manchester, in a desperate bid to find a wife.
Muhammad Malik who begged to be ‘saved from an arranged marriage’ also set up a website.
The entrepreneur told VICE that a friend who was into marketing, presented the idea to him He revealed that he has received over 1,000 applications from potential matches since he made the announcement over a week ago.
Speaking on the timeframe, Malik told TimeOut Magazine; “There’s definitely no timeframe. For me it was a bit of a tongue-in-cheek thing that ‘2022 is the year’, but it doesn’t have to be. I have a strong belief in predestination, that things are written and not to worry.
I think it’s really important to have that genuine connection with somebody because we’re looking to leave a legacy behind us.”
On his ideal first date, he said; “It might be a bit of a culture shock for people, but for me that would be to meet in a setting where it isn’t just us, but there are also family members around.
That’s the Islamic way to go about it – there’s always someone there as a chaperone. That would be perfect. And I’m obviously open to anything, it could be crazy golf, or literally just staying at home.”
