Forget Tinder or OKCupid. Can a hand-painted mural help one person find a boyfriend? An anonymous woman partnered with graphic designer Matthew Wyne to create a 52-foot painting on a San Francisco sidewalk, laying out what she's looking for in a boyfriend—and her phone number is included. She's looking for "someone to slow down with," "someone to let me eat the last Cheez-It," "someone to cuddle and rant with." In this short film, Wyne interviews passersby about the art project.

"[It] isn't just about one person finding a boo," he explained in an email. "It's also a public art project that hopes to get people asking themselves what they are looking for and what they might do to find it."
