New Yorker Daniel Perino had an everyday-schlub-turned-viral-sensation moment this week when local then national then international media started reporting on the poster he put up around New York City: a picture of himself, the words “looking for a girlfriend,” and some personal information. But apparently posters are the new Tinder: Perino told an Australian news site he’s gotten 118 hook-ups thanks to his new fame, so far.
I couldn’t get laid back in high school. So to the girls I wanted to hook up with then. Are coming out of the woodwork. No you are to old.— lookingforgirfriend (@danperinonyc) March 3, 2015
The “actor and part-time web designer” has been on a bit of a publicity binge, and told Vice his selection of ladies is so quality that now he only dates models. “I like models a whole lot better than a cute, short blonde. I dunno, maybe I should put on the flyer that I’m only dating models now.”
Became a celebrity over night Google my name Dan perino. Most of my ex girlfriends are getting in touch with me now begging for a date.— lookingforgirfriend (@danperinonyc) March 3, 2015
Apparently those models can handle being with someone as famous as Perino.
“A lot of girls get nervous around me on a date because of the celebrity thing,“ he said. "They’re just scared, they’re not used to it I guess. I walk down the street and get stopped 10 or 15 times a day for my picture.”
Just wait until Perino finds out about Craigslist.
