Girls - is this the man for you?

or NOT?

Austin Wedding photographer Larry Busby is so desperate for a girlfriend, he's willing to pay a finders fee of $1,500 to anyone who can help him find one (there's an extra $1,000 in it for you "if this turns into marriage").
But just because he's desperate doesn't mean he doesn't have a long, highly offensive series of very specific demands.
On his website, Sleepless in Austin (mirror), Busby, who naturally goes by his stage name Romeo Rose, lists all the things he needs the girl of his dreams to be — or not to be — before he can agree to date her
Rest of article here

Read the article to see what he wants in a woman and then tell me what you think of him.

I got about halfway through that list before I decided I'd had enough of this scumbag. I am ashamed to share a gender with this guy.

The part that was hardest for me to believe was that he actually had a girlfriend for eleven years.

Wow. This guy is a class-act, ain't he?

Wow.... the part about her not having children because of how it "ruins" the vagina. Dude, seriously, you're setting all of mankind back here.

He at least is real. His YouTube acount dates back 5 years. You can't get into his blog, it is probably getting too much traffic.


However one site has said

In what is either the greatest publicity stunt or the worst online dating profile ever, Austin-based photographer Romeo Rose (his real name is Larry Busby) has launched Sleepless in Austin, a website dedicated to finding this particular Romeo his very own Juliet.
and one comment on that site states

I'll keep this simple, I worked with this man. He also was on Judge Judy for a bad tattoo, you might find it on Youtube. He got his (ex)GFs face tattooed on his shoulder. POORLY. The next day he got it on the other shoulder, different artist, poor but better.
Lost his case on Judge Judy for this.
He's one of the most incompetent people in the call center he works at, but somehow has been there for 3 years.
I would have thought this entire thing was sattire if I hadn't know the guy. You can also find his youtube channel. It's full of his 'music' and 'artwork'. Have fun.

Re: Girls - is this the man for you?

I am NOT racist. Just because I don't like the appearnce of black people does not make me racist. Just because I don't like a particular painting, does not mean I dislike the medium of Art as a whole!

But I will say this, Blacks do make up the majority of the inmates in the prisons in the country.

And I think it's White people that make up the majority of white collar executive types of positions in America. Probably more Whites are 1 percenters than there are blacks.

When I think of all of the classical composers like Mozart etc that were pure genius, I don't recall many of them being Black.

This is the 1st black president we've had so far and look what a horrible job he has done.

So in the grand scheme of things, it appears the scales are tilted in favor of Whites being the superior race, after all we weren't the ones that were enslaved workinf cotton fields for 40o years..

Just pointing out that history seems to show whites as always rising to the top and dominating all other countries and cultures and taking what they want and doing as they please, being the dominant, most powerful, most intelligent race....

I'm not saying I personally believe whites are superior to blacks, I am not a scientist, and I have not studied it to any great depth...

Just pointing out some observations.

Re: Girls - is this the man for you?

^I actually knew a guy (friend of a friend) who expressed something similar. We were watching the movie 28 Days Later and I commented on how stunning Naomie Harris was. He said, "Meh, I just don't find black women attractive."

I was like, "Wuh...?"

And he said, "I'm not racist or anything, black women just have a combination of features I don't find attractive."

And I was like, "Wuh...?"

Seriously.



He was smarter than this guy, though, and at least he didn't claim to have Uncle Tom and his bluesy banjo trapped inside him.

I like how this guy goes "I'm not racist but whites are clearly the superior race because..." and then, as a bonus, plays the "I have many black friends" card.

Several years ago I got called a racist because I said I didn't find really dark black men attractive even though, on a whole, I find black men more attractive than white men. I was asked which black men I found attractive and I know I mentioned Richard Biggs and Denzil Washington.

I admit I do agree with him on gold diggers.

Oh. And redheads. Redheads are awesome.

The "I just don't find people of another race personally attractive" thing I can understand (can't say I agree, but at least it makes some sense, attraction is highly personal and subjective). This guy went way beyond that and just spiraled out of control. I almost couldn't make it through that post.

Given this guy's apparent personality, I think gold diggers are the only ones who would want to go out with him.
