A Texas man is raising eyebrows for a very specific dating ad he created.

Georgia native Larry Busby, who goes by Romeo Rose, created the website Sleepless in Austin, seeking help finding his dream girl.

Now living in Austin, Texas, the self described “artist, musician, poet, composer, performer, businessman,” says romance is the air he breathes.

Rose says he’s looking for love, but the woman must fit extremely rigid criteria. She must have a thin or athletic build, weigh no more than 130 pounds and should be between 21- and 41-years-old.

The 39-year-old love lorn bachelor’s also says, “I will not date a Black girl. I don’t care if she looks like Halle Berry, I will not ever date a Black girl.”

Rose goes on to say any other race is acceptable, “Hispanic, Mexican, Spanih, Russian, Italian, French, European, White,” the ad reads. “Anything except Black.”

Other women Rose will not date  who are girls with tattoos, strippers or gamblers. Oh yeah, you can’t be cynical or sarcastic.

Rose insists the website is “for real” and that anyone who helps him find his perfect lady will get $1,500. There’s a $1,000 bonus if the relationship leads to marriage.

He’s hoping the money will motivate a matchmaker to find him a “woman of great quality.”
