United Kingdom: A lovelorn Romeo has turned to eBay to find a girl to go on holiday with him after being dumped by his partner.
IT technician Jake Dodridge had booked a romantic £650 trip with his long- term girlfriend, but just weeks before they were due to depart she left him, claiming they no longer worked as a couple.
He went back to lastminute.co.uk to ask for a refund, but they refused.
Jake, from Newbury, Berks, has now taken to the internet to to find a Girl Friday to come with him.
He said: "This isn't something I would normally do, but when life gives you lemons you have to make lemonade.
"I was upset when my girlfriend dumped me, but looking back it was the right thing to do. It just wasn't meant to be.
"But what is the point of wasting a perfectly good holiday? I want someone fun to come with me, who is up for a laugh.
"I will obviously get their number before we go so I can chat to them and see if we get on.
"It's not about making money, I just want someone to go with so the holiday will go to the highest bidder. It will be a great first date."
The advert was placed on auction site eBay, for 99p, but still has not achieved any bids.
