A man from Southern Australia found himself in need of entertainment and decided to post a selfie in hopes of finding a new friend.
Ray Johnstone posted a heartbreaking message to a website after his best friend died, leaving him bored and lonely with no one to talk to. But the thing that made people stop and pay attention? He posted the ad on a site where people normally buy, sell, and trade goods and services such as baby chickens, furniture, cars, tools, books, and more.
It gets a bit lonely just sitting around watching the TV a lot of the time,” he said. “What I want is a fishing mate in a similar position to myself who also wants someone to go fishing with,” he added.
He also clarified that it didn’t matter if his new friend preferred to fish on a boat or from the land because he would be willing to split the costs no matter what.
To break even more hearts, he listed his condition as: “used.”
In just 11 days, over 46,000 people viewed and shared his plea. Calls came in by the hundreds from all across the country until he finally made contact with someone who lived close enough.
