Attention, everyone else: you're trying too hard.

We've posted joke versions of these before. They don't work as well. (via reddit)

Dan Perino has figured out what women are looking for: a guy who is looking for a girlfriend. At least, that's what the 500 posters a day he posted around lower Manhattan last year claimed. Granted, that doesn't seem to have gotten him a steady girlfriend, but as he told news.com.au, "It's been going great. I've had ... hook-ups with 118 girls, but the dating is a lot more than that." The article then makes clear exactly what he means by hook-ups: "sex."

This story began back in July, when people first noticed Perino plastering his mug all over town:


Since then, as you've deduced, Perino has apparently had a steady stream of lady callers drawn to his forthright, this-is-exactly-what-you're getting charm. "I was getting 200-300 calls per day," said Perino. "I couldn't get back to everybody...there's been over 8000 phone calls. I posted well over 40,000 flyers." So, is Perino actually way, way more charming than he looks (no offense, bro)? Well...

But what about the girlfriend? Why haven't you found one yet, Dan? "I see some of these girls over and over again but they're just not marriage material. I'm looking for a girlfriend that's going to turn into a marriage." Ohhhh...that makes sense, except for the fact that you don't seem to have a girlfriend so much as a dating show with an audience of you. But hey...I'm not knocking it.

Think back to every time you mentally scoffed at someone telling you to just be yourself. Now look at Dan Perino. You should have listened to that person.
