The ‘Looking for a Girlfriend’ Guy is Still on the Prowl

Posted on: October 3rd, 2017 at 9:40 am by

Dan Perino is still looking for a girlfriend. Seriously, it’s not a joke, he’s just tired of the singles scene.

The 53-year-old aspiring actor returned to the streets to flyer the furniture, as it were. His advertisements can be found up the Bowery and into Little Italy.

Honestly, it’s been a minute since we’ve seen Perino’s mugshot around the Lower East Side. Back in 2015, we saw him papering Delancey Street, armed with a stack of his tear-tab flyers.

Dan Perino is a native New Yorker, born and raised on Sullivan Street. According to a prior interview with Dashel Pierson, his mother was apparently a druggie and slept around quite a bit. “She used to do acid, speed, drinking, smoking pot, and other stuff,” he quipped. “When she wasn’t too stoned, she would bring me to acting and modeling jobs as a kid.”

Below is more from said interview:

Later in life, Perino made most of his money from writing a book about how to get an apartment in New York without paying a broker fee. I searched the web but couldn’t find it anywhere.

He’s been commissioned to paint murals at private residences and businesses across the city. His work, which he broadcasts on his Instagram, often involves multiracial characters holding hands in a natural setting—something you might find blasted on the playground walls of an elementary school.

He was once married but he says that he never loved her. At least, he stopped loving her soon after the ring was on. He and his ex, a Korean woman named Linda, have a 17-year-old daughter together. Tabitha lives with her mother in southern New Jersey and has little contact with her father.
