People say, "I love you to the moon and back" to tell someone they love them. A Japanese billionaire will go to the moon and back with his love. However, he doesn't have a love. Yusaku Maezawa, 44, is looking for someone special to go on a trip to the moon with in 2023. He made his money from his fashion company Zozo. He paid to be the first private passenger to fly to the moon. He will be the first customer of the space travel company SpaceX and the world's first space tourist. He does not want to go on his own. He wants to, "visit such a special place with someone special".

Mr Maezawa made a TV documentary to look for a female friend. It is called "Full Moon Lovers". On the TV show's website, he wrote: "As feelings of loneliness and emptiness slowly begin to come to me, there's one thing that I think about - continuing to love one woman. I want to find a 'life partner'. With that future partner of mine, I want to shout our love and shout for world peace from outer space." His perfect woman is aged 20 or above, single, "always positive," and be interested in going into space. He tweeted: "Wanted! Why not be the 'first woman' to travel to the moon?"
