This Man Is Using Dating Flyers To Find A “Germ-Free Girlfriend”

Finding love in the midst of a pandemic is not exactly the easiest thing to do but you know the heart will always find a way where it is willing.

With obstacles like curfews, lockdowns, social distancing, self-isolation all stacked against him, a New York man has devised creative ways to find love.


For those who have been jogging through Central Park or any of the Big Apple’s running paths, something that will surely catch their eyes are the unusual flyers from a “healthy, attractive and well-employed man” allegedly looking for a “germ-free, healthy, fit and clean” woman interested in a monogamous relationship.

While this may not be how Cinderalla found Prince Charming, the man who came up with it says it’s a more “targeted” alternative to online dating services.

The New York Post newspaper was able to identify the man behind the mysterious posters and ask him for more information.

Asked only to be identified as Brad, the 30-something male said that he came up with the idea for the flyers while brainstorming ideas for finding a partner during the Covid-19 pandemic, when physical contact with strangers is strongly discouraged.

“I was single when the lockdown began and have been wondering how and when dating would be possible again,” Brad said. “Social distancing has made meeting new people difficult, and now we are all in masks and that is a very unapproachable situation. This is no time for casual dating or hookups, so I am seeking a long-term and exclusive relationship.”

As for using flyers as opposed to more modern date-finding options, like apps, or websites, Brad said that he thought it was a more targeted way to find the right kind of person.

Brad who is very passionate about fitness, health and the outdoors, felt plastering his flyers on running paths increased his chances of being contacted by like-minded women.

It’s “much more targeted and direct than using dating apps, which could be filled with women who have already fled the city, fakes, etc. Also there is much less competition this way,” Brad explained.

Despite his approach not being the most romantic way to find a partner, it’s working as he reveals that he has gotten plenty of messages from “high-quality women” and he is looking forward to some interesting “six-feet-apart dates”.

Regarding the email he has listed on the flyers,, Brad admits that it’s pretty funny, but also “a genuine offer of stability in this strange time”.

You know what they say, love don’t cost a thing!
