Alexander Gorbunov, a 38-year-old, single man from Hollywood, Florida is looking for a wife. He decided to take a less traditional approach to finding his true love, however, and placed handwritten signs on the back of his two cars, a BMW and a Hummer, hoping to attract Ms Right. The signs read: “Looking for a Wife,” and include his phone number.

The attention that the flashy cars draw and the bright eye-catching signs have Alex fielding 15 to 20 calls a day, along with text messages and photos. Because images of the sign have been posted on Facebook, the Casanova who moved to the US four years ago from Russia, is contacted by people all over the country and the world with messages from California, Michigan, France, China, and Brazil.

According to the Miami Herald, Alex first put up his signs in late 2012, because he liked to serve as a matchmaker for his friends and family. The effort worked and he was able to set up his uncle, Michael Korol with a woman named Erika Santos, who called the advertised number.

三十八歲、單身、來自佛羅里達州好萊塢的亞歷山大.戈布諾夫,正在找老婆。但他決定採取比較不傳統的方式尋找真愛,將手寫招牌放在他的兩輛車,一輛BMW,一輛悍馬車的後面,希望能吸引到真命天女。這些招牌上寫著:「找老婆」,以及他的電話號碼。

這些拉風的車子所吸引到的關注,以及那些引人注目的招牌,讓亞歷一天得應付十五到二十通來電,此外還有簡訊與照片。由於(徵婚)招牌的照片被貼到臉書上,有來自全美與全世界的人跟這位在四年前從俄羅斯移居美國的大情聖聯繫,包括來自加州、密西根州、法國、中國與巴西的訊息。

根據《邁阿密前鋒報》指出,亞歷一開始在二0一二年底豎立覓妻招牌,因為他喜歡幫親友作媒。他的努力奏效,成功撮合他的叔叔麥可.克洛爾與回覆廣告上的電話、名叫艾瑞卡.桑托斯的女子。
