While many people are scrambling to find last-minute presents or even a date before, this Kansas man wants a little something more: A girlfriend. And he’s offering $25,000 to anyone who can help him find one.
Bachelor Jeff Gebhart told CBS affiliate KCTV that he has grown sick of dating the traditional way and especially abhors online dating. So, he said, he decided to think outside the box.
“Well think about it, if you’re in a happy marriage, what monetary value could you ever place on meeting the right person … ever?” the 47-year-old told the outlet. “My time and frustration and disappointment definitely is worth some sort of dollar figure but that was roughly what I’d spend in dating.”
The site has all anyone would ever need to know about the eligible bachelor, including a two-minute-long video detailing his quest. Gebhart has never been engaged or married, but has been in several long term relationships, according to his site.
He doesn’t have any kids, but does have a beloved pup named Gunner, and is using his search for love to help out other dogs. In addition to the $25,000 award for the lucky matchmaker, Gebhart said he will also make a $25,000 donation to a no-kill dog shelter or charity
