PARIS, FRANCE -- The place is called "Adopt-A-Guy" and shows eligible bachelors posing in shop windows and glass boxes.

It is all an attempt to get more women on the website.

On display, guys looking like doctors, soldiers, and one unshaved fellow in his shirts and undershirt.

Women are invited to browse around and check out the guys.

Owners of the website and the shop say it is all in good fun.

4.7 million people are signed up for the dating website, more than 7,000 each day.

Meanwhile, if you like the personal approach, consider a visit to a town on the Western Coast of Ireland, holding Europe's largest matchmaking festival.

40,000 single men and women have packed the small town looking for their better halves.

One man says he didn't drink and does his own washing...."What more do you want?"
