A woman has had her dating profile put on a 48-foot billboard by her closest friends in a bid to help her find love.
Sha Tabb, 42, a traffic reporter from Florida, had been looking for a partner with little success when her best friends of 11-years, Jacqui and Sheri, decided to intervene.
The duo craftily created a profile for Sha on Wingman, a dating app that allows friends and family to help land singletons a date.

The massive billboard was placed in New York City’s bustling Times Square
They described their 5-foot-11-inch, brown-eyed, brunette pal as ‘outgoing, ambitious and down to earth’ while urging prospective suitors to get in touch.
Sha, a former NFL cheerleader for the Miami Dolphins, didn’t just have her profile posted onto the app, however.
It was also blown up on a towering billboard and placed in New York City’s bustling Times Square after Wingman CEO Tina Wilson reached out to Jacqui and Sheri to offer some help in their quest.
The billboard features a picture of Sha and a comment from her pals: ‘Sha is always cheering others on…now we are cheering her on!’ — along with a link to a website with more details.
Jacqui and Sheri, who met Sha while working together in radio, revealed why they decided to meddle in their friend’s love life.
‘Sha is literally the best person I know and it’s complete madness that she cannot find her person,’ they told NeedToKnow. ‘The dating scene is hard so we decided to give her a little push.

‘We swear she is normal and we want people to know and see she’s beautiful on the inside as well as outside.
‘Maybe guys think she is not available or hard to approach, as she’s so gorgeous. Honestly, we both have no idea how she is single.’
The pals explained Sha has had some challenges while looking for love, including men who were lazy, inconsistent, not transparent about their values and goals, or not serious about building a relationship with her.
‘It seems like people only want to come around for a little while, but not stay for a long time,’ they said.
‘She would really like to have someone that wants to build a life and that’s ready for that. Somebody that wants a partner and is looking for someone they can share life with.
‘Unfortunately, her past experiences have been with people that don’t seem to want anything serious, as they are not consistent and they lack quality communication skills.

The pals said Shaw was ‘shocked’ when she found out about the billboard and said it felt ‘like something straight out of a movie
‘Sha has had relationships in the past but nothing that has lasted the distance.
‘The thing is, Sha is the kindest person and if anyone approached her, she’s the most friendly person too,’ they added. ‘She’s 5-foot-11 and a real head turner when she walks in the room.’
Jacqui and Sheri said they decided to download the Wingman app because it allowed them to take over.
‘We know Sha better than she knows herself. She would never talk about herself and how great she is — but we can,’ they explained. ‘We screamed out loud when we saw the billboard because it’s just so big.
‘Sha was so shocked [when she heard about the billboard],’ they added. ‘She thought she was dreaming. She said it feels like something straight out of a movie.’
Since launching the ad, they have been contacted by plenty of well-wishers and hope Sha’s very own Prince Charming will be in touch soon.
