To Mohd Ariff’s surprise, the post went viral and was shared more than 900 times, gathering over 1,500 likes! His Facebook inbox was also flooded with messages from thousands of suitors, who wish to stand a chance. He had to temporarily deactivate his social media account due to the overwhelming response.

The 32-year-old bachelor explained that he didn’t mean any offense with the criteria he had listed down. As the eldest child in the family, he was often pressured to get married. Hence, he decided to turn to Facebook to look for love.

We wish Mohd Ariff the best of luck in finding his soulmate!
