Internally, I’ve had this discussion with my girlfriends. In this new age of non-stop online interaction, one can easily find love online. Just ask 71-year-old Martha Stewart. And now before you go rolling your eyes and shaking your head, open your mind a bit, because if it’s good enough for Ms. Stewart and may just be good enough for you. In an interview with Matt Lauer, she confessed that she’d recently joined Match.com.
“I’d like to have breakfast with somebody. I’d like to go to bed with somebody. Sleep with somebody. I had a longtime boyfriend. That ended a couple years ago. And I haven’t found the next Mr. Right.”
As for her profile, she put:
“I put out ‘young-ish,’ energetic, outdoor-ish, really smart. Tall-ish….curious, intelligent, entrepreneurial, hardworking, fun, adventurous.”
Coached by Sam Yagan, Match.com’s chief executive, she was advised not to use her name of photos.
“Only because I think it would be distracting to those initial conversations you have where everyone is going to be about talking to Martha as opposed to really getting to know the person first.”
Stewart has been married once — to publishing exec Andrew Stewart, when she was 19. They stayed together for 26 years before splitting in 1987. Stay tuned to find out if Martha finds herself a man on Match. [Page Six, The Today Show]
