This guy might be wishing he’d just stuck with Tinder: 43-year-old Robert Siegfried lives in southern Wisconsin and hasn’t had a ton of luck with online dating. So he recently rented a billboard to find himself a wife.
He lives in Janesville, about 70 miles outside Milwaukee. The billboard says, “Date Robert: Wisconsin’s #1 Eligible Bachelor.” And there’s a picture of him in a cowboy hat, belt buckle, and sunglasses.
It says he’s “looking for a local, honest woman.” And there’s a phone number you can call or text to leave him a message. He’s planning to rent more billboards over the next few weeks, if necessary. (Here’s a photo.)

No word on how many dates it’s gotten him. But he has run into a few hurdles. First, a reporter interviewed him, and he asked HER out during the segment. It sort of seemed like a joke, but she’s quite a bit younger and politely declined.
This part might be more of a deal-breaker though: The station covering the story felt the need to list one final detail at the end. They noted that someone filed a restraining order against him last year. (!!!)
We don’t have the details. All we know is it’s a four-year restraining order that’s apparently still in effect. And he also faced a disorderly conduct charge last year.
So anyway, if you’re interested, his phone number is all over the internet right now. (608-631-0575)
