Martha Stewart Finds Her Match

Martha Stewart on Match.com

Just over a month ago, the country’s most celebrated domestic diva Martha Stewart announced to good friend and TODAY show anchor Matt Lauer that although she has had a lot of success in life, she’s still looking for a romantic match – and that in the spirit of adventure she’d love to try Match.com for the first time in her life!

Over the past several weeks Matt Lauer and Match.com Inc. CEO Sam Yagan helped Martha set up her profile, browse for potential suitors, comb through thousands of messages, and select two men to go on dates with. Both men– Larry, a steel trading executive and Stan, a commercial and film director—were introduced to Martha in person on the TODAY show and follow up dates happened shortly thereafter. See the recap of Martha’s Match.com journey on the TODAY show below:

Sam Yagan’s tips for success for Martha (and everyone on the site) were to be yourself first and foremost, start the conversation, and stick with it! Though Martha might not have found her soul mate in two dates, she had fun with the process and it opened her up to the idea of dating again. The key is to remember that a proactive and positive approach to online dating will lead to the most success.

    Absolutely. I think this is a publicity stunt….

    Maybe if I had the CEO of march helping me out, I’d get a nice normal funny guy instead of paying for a bunch of creepy much older weirdos winking at me and sending ridiculous message.

    I am sure, with all the help she has received that she wasn’t “matched” with a black, African scammer. Believe me, they are on the site in full force! Match professes to screen the profiles. The really do not, or not to any degree.

    A quick “tip-off” is a complete “slaughter” of the English language-grammar, punctuation, spelling, spacing, syntax, etc.

    But there are scammers out there who have a solid grasp of the language and all that goes with it. They are the ones who can “snag you”.

    As one of the comments mentioned, most men are looking for someone much younger, so if they get someone 55 (he is 65), welcome to menopause and all the “fun” that accompanies-mood swings, hot flashes, night sweats (and I don’t mean sweating during a wild, love-making session)!

    So those of us who are still attractive, intelligent, in good shape/health, financially solvent, etc., are relegated to an 80 year old with prostate issues (Viagara needed here)! Or, perhaps, a bit of dementia?

    Why is a convicted felon on Match.com anyway? This is a violation of their terms of service!

    I have had several dates and one long term relationship with Match. It just doesn’t replace meeting in person because you can be a PERFECT MATCH online yet make no connection when you actually meet….also it has been my expertience that Match frequently becomes an addiction, and while men say they are looking for THE one, they are forever looking for the NEXT one…
