Brother Advertised On Gumtree To Find Single Sister A Boyfriend


A brother decided it was time his sister got a boyfriend so he posted a hilarious advert online – and received dozens of offers!

Adam Clarke, 26, thought it was time his 33-year-old sister Natalie got hooked up and so without her knowledge he put together a video and posted it on Facebook and Gumtree – and then it went viral.

So far, the video has been watched more than 10,000 times and Natalie has received close to 100 messages.

Adam started the video after his sister got out of the car to run an errand.

His sales pitches included: "She's doing my head in!"

Natalie told local news: "When I got back in the car Adam was recording a video on his phone I told him to delete it and thought he did.

"It wasn't until we got home when he told me he shared it on his Facebook."

When Natalie found out about the video she said: "At first I was shocked and kicked off but then I began to see the funny side and now I'm thankful."

She has been busy whittling potential dates down to between five and eight and may even be heading out on a date this week.

Adam and Natalie work together running media company Suave Productions, based in Cardiff.

After Adam found himself a girlfriend he felt it would be nice for Natalie to get into a relationship too.

He said: "I thought it would be nice for her to have some balance, and get her head out of her laptop."

Asked what she looks for in a man, Natalie said: "I'll admit its a little shallow but... looks. I'll look at their profile and through their time­line to see if they stand out, to see if they can have a laugh like me."
