(CNN) -- A 105-year-old Chinese man has started his own blog aiming to find a woman to marry. He describes himself as "a mature man wanting to meet a younger woman."

50: The age of the woman that Gong Duruo would like to meet. "I cannot live without love any more and I want someone to spend the rest of my life with," he said.

10: The number of responses that he received within two days of starting his appeal.

52: The age of the woman that Gong, a doctor by training, chose to take on a date. The woman, Zhang, runs a beauty salon. "An instant warm feeling ran through me when I saw his online pictures," she said.

2,000: The couple, who live 2,000 kilometers apart, are now planning to meet.

2: Gong, who has two medical degrees, currently lives with relatives. "Every one should have a goal. Without a goal, people would die very early. That's why scientists always have longevity, like Einstein, since they have life-goals," he said.


Looking for love: Gong Duruo.
