A Fife Lake, Mich. man says he will be going on three dates after his friends and co-workers thought it would be fun to post his picture, email address, and phone number on a billboard in hopes of him getting a Valentine’s Day date.

Matt Hill, 25, said his friends and co-workers at a lawn and garden company created a advertisement with that read “Looking for a Valentine?…Call Matt,” along with his information in order for him to find a special someone for Feb. 14.

And even though Hill didn’t find a date for Valentine’s Day, he said he did speak to a few people who sparked his interest.

“They were pretty persistent on getting a hold of me so I figured I’d give them a go and we started talking and we had a lot in common,” Hill told WPBN News.

In total, the 25-year-old said he received more than 600 phone calls, text message and emails from inside the U.S. and even outside the country.

When asked where Hill might take his dates he told WPBN, “just dinner and a movie.”

“Just to get to know them,” Hill said.

Hill also said there’s a chance he might find his true love on one of his dates.

“It’s a possibility, you never know,” he told WPBN.
