An Alabama man has offered a $10,000 reward for anyone who can 'find him a girlfriend'.

Ren Lu You(29) has set up a website offering the generous prize to anyone who can recommend him a friend or family member to date - with whom the relationship lasts six months.

You now lives in Birmingham and told Buzzfeed News that he got the idea after a string of "monstrously inefficient" dates.

His website,, has been up for a week and You reports that he has received a "deluge" of submissions - half of which have said they are not interested in the money.

You's goal is to "find somebody really great and be their boyfriend...people are willing to pay a huge amount of money for a lot of things that are a lot less important".
