A man is placing adverts in shop windows in an attempt to find love.

David Owusu-Akyeaw, 28, from Thornton Heath, has placed adverts in shops in Wallington and Croydon.

He has only been doing it for a few months but has already received about 10 responses.

Although some have been good he has also received phone calls from school kids messing around.

He said: "I thought it would be a good idea and would save money – online dating is so expensive.

"I’m looking to extend my family – I’ve already got two girls – I want two more boys then I will call it quits.

"I thought it would make more sense if me and the lady fall in love first."

When it comes to his "type" Mr Owusu-Akyeaw said he likes clean, attractive, taller women about the ages of 24-36.

But Mr Owusu-Akyeaw said he is quite open-minded when it comes to his type of lady but he said he likes caring women.

But he said: "Most importantly it’s the state-of-mind – it’s very important to me.

"If I can’t fall in love with her mind it’s going to be hard to go further."

Mr Owusu-Akyeaw is a self-employed musician who has been married before and is ideally looking to marry again.

He said he is a creative person who does a lot of reading; he spends a lot of time with his immediate family and sometimes goes to the golf range with his mum.

His ideal date would be abroad somewhere like Thailand or Switzerland but on a local level he said he likes going out for lunch or for a drink.
