BBC NEWS | England | London | Date stall man's 'life changed': "The 32-year-old has not had a serious girlfriend since moving to London four years ago and said he found people in the city unapproachable.

So he decided to take a more direct approach, handing out fliers and standing next to a 3m-tall banner reading: 'Girlfriend wanted, apply here'.

He told BBC News: 'I had got to the point, not just with women, where I was so disappointed with people's reactions when I spoke to them but the experience just shattered them.

'People went out of their way to talk to me, and seemed genuinely interested in it.

'It really has changed my outlook on life.'

On his list of telephone numbers he said: 'It definitely beats going down the pub'."
