ORLANDO, Fla., March 21 (UPI) -- An Orlando, Fla., bachelor who used a billboard to find dates says he might still be looking for love in all the wrong places but he remains optimistic.
John Smith rented a billboard along the city's Interstate 4 during December hoping the right woman would contact his helpjohnfindlove.com Web site, but he says the women he's met have been less than ideal, the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel reported Sunday.
"At this point, I would say, it was not successful," he said. "I had hoped to be dating someone seriously by now, but it just didn't work out," he said.
Smith says the women who've responded have either been dating other people or simply wanted a meal out. With others, the chemistry simply wasn't right, the newspaper said.
But ever hopeful, he's been the subject of radio and television interviews and he's organized a bachelor auction with proceeds going to an Orlando charity.
And, if he does meet "the one," he and his significant other have an invitation to appear on the "Dr. Phil" show so the celebrity can give her the once-over.
