Widower is Showered With Affection After Sending His Dating Profile into the Ocean

Widower is Showered With Affection After Sending His Dating Profile into the Ocean

Widower is Showered With Affection After Sending His Dating Profile into the OceanInstead of struggling with OKCupid, he was inspired by a British rock song to put his dating profile in a bottle.

The 49-year-old Scottish widower has sent dozens of messages in bottles into the ocean in hopes that the right person would find one and respond. Though he originally planned to cast off hundreds of bottles, he was told to stop polluting UK waters.

His messages have, however, returned dozens of replies from places as far as Brazil, Turkey, the USA, South Africa, Portugal, China, and Japan.

“It’s been an amazingly broad and deeply emotional clutch of messages that have come my way,” says Sullivan.

The single father first got the idea for the unconventional dating plan after he read an op-ed about a dying children’s author asking other women to “date her husband” in hopes that he would find love after her passing.

As Sullivan contemplated how he could do something similar, the song “Message in a Bottle” by The Police started playing on his radio – and everything clicked into place.

He wrote about his mission in a blog, where Sullivan has expressed his shock – and gratitude – over how much attention he has received from the bottles.
