Go ahead, leave Martha Stewart a "wink" on Match.com! As recently teased on TODAY, the once-divorced homemaking mogul, 71, is looking for love -- and has dipped her famous toes in the online dating pool, with her recently created Match.com profile now revealed.
Wearing an unbuttoned white shirt, Stewart -- whose screen name is "thegoodlonglife" -- gives a serene, close-mouthed smile for her profile shot. Looking for men aged 55-70 in the NYC area, the doyenne gets the obvious out in the open first. "You may recognize me from my pictures. Yes, it's really me," she writes.
Plugging her new book, Living the Good Long Life, the author and TV star explains of her leap into online dating: "I was reminded how central good relationships are to happiness and longevity. Also, I’ve always been a big believer that technology, if used well, can enhance one’s life. So here I am, looking to enhance my dating life."
(The multimillionaire divorced Andrew Stewart, father to her daughter Alexis, now 47, back in 1987 after 26 years together. Her ex boyfriends include actor Sir Anthony Hopkins and computer exec Charles Simonyl.)
Calling herself "Curious about everything. Love learning. An adventurous spirit," Stewart muses, "I'm told that I'm a specific person, and that the efficiency of online dating might be a good way for me to find that needle in the haystack." While she says she loves "to be surprised," the entrepreneur describes her ideal man:
"Someone who's intelligent, established, and curious; and who relishes adventure and new experiences as much as I do. Someone who can teach me new things. A lover of animals, grandchildren, and the outdoors. Young at heart."
Recently telling Matt Lauer she still hasn't "found the next Mr. Right," Stewart said she initially "started to laugh" while signing up for Match.com. "It was, like, impossible."
