We all have specifications for who we would want to live with but one man hasn’t appeared the most open-minded.

The unnamed man’s ad – which he posted on Irish housing website Daft – has gone viral on Twitter because of his very specific stipulations.

It reads: “Unique opportunity to share 4 bedroom house with 3 others beside beach in Sandymount, Dublin 4 at low rent.

“Current occupants are 1. Owner (male 40s) who is retired and a passionate gardener, 2. Brazilian (female) IT professional (20s) working from home, and 3. American (female) IT master’s student (20s) studying from home.

“I expect this would particularly suit a writer, artist, a mindfulness practitioner or someone who studies at home.

“We seek someone who is interested in nature, gardening and participating in our little community - we do NOT seek someone involved in the modern-day rat race or who has a job outside the home.

“The rent is below the market rate because the primary goal is not commercial but rather to find the right person who will bring good energy to the home.

“Replies should include a brief description of yourself and a mobile number.”

The repost of his ad on Twitter has received over 2,000 likes, and many were left perplexed by his unusual list of requests:

Meanwhile, others defended the man for wanting to “create a nice environment” for himself.

One person wrote: “So just because it doesn’t suit you, you decide he’s a weirdo? Ever think he could just be a nice guy trying to help others while creating a nice environment for himself?”
