    A Chinese woman living in Sydney has taken the unusual step of advertising for a husband on a billboard outside a cinema in Sydney's eastern suburbs.

    Helen Zhou, from Shanghai, said she had tried Internet dating but found men did not want to commit.

    "People are happy to date but they don't want any commitment, only temporary relationships," the middle-aged Zhou told her weekly local newspaper, the Southern Courier.

    Zhou spent A$5,000 (2,020 pounds) on the billboard which has a large headline "HUSBAND WANTED" and a lists of requirements, such as age up to 45, good health, non-smoker and drinker, caucasian, solid financial background and a good sense of humour.

    "I'm not fussy," said Zhou, who describes herself on the billboard as a beautiful and intelligent woman seeking a "dream family with a fabulous partner".

    "I guess I want a traditional sort of person, not really flash - an old fashioned kind of guy, not one who spends every cent and doesn't worry about tomorrow."

    So far Zhou's search for love has received few replies.

    The life-long search for monogamy and companionship. Zhou - don't do it you'll be sorry.

    I'm so set in my ways now, I can't imagine having anyone else in my life ever. Hell I just got this one trained. Can you imagine the disruption a new partner would make in your life?

    The best thing she could have done is ask her friends for advice or opinion on what she did.

    "I'm going to advertise this... do you think it's a good idea? will I be sorry?".

    A single man and a single woman... Which one have it easier in life?
