If you’re a parent, you’ve probably thought about your child’s future partner once or twice.
You might have wondered what they would be like, look like and when your future grandchildren may come along.
But one dad has taken this to the next level and decided to meddle in the love lives of his three sons, Benjamin, Jeremy and Matthew.
A man named Neil Schifberg decided to play matchmaker and posted a personal ad in a New Zealand newspaper with the hope of finding "nice" dates for his unmarried children while there on holiday.
Neil, who lives in Oregon in the US, took out an ad in the NZ Herald this week, which he addressed to fellow parents.
His goal was to find some families who would be willing to introduce their daughters to his sons, during their trip.
He wrote: "Hello Parents, we are from the States (Oregon), visiting your beautiful country. My wife and I have 3 wonderful, successful, handsome, alas unmarried, sons between the ages of 28-32.
"We are not expecting, just hoping, to introduce our sons to nice NZ daughters. At the very least we’ll embarrass out sons and the truth is, we do find some enjoyment in that."
The father went on to reveal that they would be arriving in New Zealand on Boxing Day and staying until January 7.
He then added his email address, should any parents of "nice", single daughters wish to make themselves known.
Speaking to the Herald , Neil later admitted that all he wants is for his sons to meet people while travelling.
"We like to travel and I have gone with my kids to Europe, Australia and Japan, but we have never really interacted with anybody and in my mind I was just interested in them getting to know people, meeting people their age and maybe develop some lasting, permanent relationships," he said.
The American went on to reveal he’s never done anything like this before but has already received more than 200 responses to his ad.
He added: "I’m somewhat surprised that I have got quite a lot of responses.
"It is hard to tell how many are genuine. A few are maybe just scammers but for the most part people are really amazingly nice."
