Dad's ad in Tele to find husband for 'gorgeous 6ft daughter' - she can talk to anyone
An anxious Northern Ireland man has posted a classified advert to look for a husband for his daughter in a bid to stop her leaving the country.
The advert, in today's Belfast Telegraph, is written by the anonymous father of a woman in her 20s who is going abroad to live.
The worried dad is fearful that his daughter, who he describes as being "6ft tall and gorgeous", will meet a man while abroad and will never come home.
The advert reads: "I'm a dad looking perhaps for a potential son-in-law for my wonderful daughter, she is about to leave Northern Ireland.
"The best wee country in the world and I fear that if she meets some nice man abroad we may never see her again."
"She is the youngest of a house that was full of girls. In her early 20s, loves her mum and dad, nothing she has ever been asked to do has been beyond her. She went to the top university, came home with top honours and went straight to work.
"She is 6ft tall, gorgeous and can hold a conversation in any company. Who would her daddy like her to meet?
"A kind, ambitious, hard working, Northern Irish man who hopefully has sown his wild oats. If your interested in finding out more call her friendly dad."
