We get thousands of Bark’s each day, however, some are a little more unique than others and catch our eye. Last week, a man posted a Bark for a Personal Investigator – specifically a PI to find out if he has unknowingly fathered any children over the course of his life.
The job advert states that the 61-year-old man has been trying to track down former lovers for the past six years, but hasn’t found any leads. He’s now enlisting the help of a professional in a last-ditch attempt to find out if he has any family. He’s asked to remain anonymous, however has agreed to let us make the Bark public in order to help him find the right person for the job.
If you think this job sounds like something you are qualified for, here’s the request in full:
I am a 61-year-old bachelor who has never settled down with a woman for more than three months at a time. I think it’s fair to say I have led a ‘promiscuous life’, and whilst I don’t regret this lifestyle, I find it hard to believe that out of thousands of women I’ve never fathered any children.
Some may think this is reckless, which I would have to agree with, but times were different back then! Contraception has not always been widely available like it is now. I’m a successful businessman from London and I’d like to build a relationship and share my success with any children I might have – life can be lonely in your later years.
I’m able to provide some details about most women I’ve been intimate with. The nature of my job meant I travelled regularly around Europe, so a PI with European connections is a big bonus, and he/she must be willing to travel to France, Switzerland, Denmark and Austria if needs be.
I’m willing to pay a seasoned professional up to £5,000 to conduct a thorough investigation, with additional money for travel and expenses. I’m also willing to provide a handsome bonus if he/she successfully finds any children of mine and I’m able to connect with them.
Over the last few years my health has deteriorated and like a typical older man I’ve started to feel sentimental and come to the realisation there is more to life than success. This might be a desperate and futile attempt to find a family, but I know I’ll always regret it if I don’t try.
Please get in touch if you think you can help, thank you.

Here’s what our co-founder, Kai Feller had to say about it:
“The advert was pointed out to us by one of our PI’s because of how unusual it is. We were curious and decided to get in touch with the man who posted it to see if we can help him find the right professional. He was happy for us to lend a hand and share his story, however wished to remain anonymous because of his job, which is fair enough.
“Six years is a long time to be searching for leads, and although we have thousands of personal investigators on site, I think with a bit of exposure we’ll be able to find one that has the right knowledge, contacts and skills to put this matter to bed finally for our mystery bachelor.”
