Martha Stewart is ready to start dating! After recently creating an online dating profile on Match.com, the 71-year-old homemaking mogul has narrowed down the 1,000 date requests she received to two men, Stan and Larry.
Before going on a date with each suitor, the divorced mother and grandmother of one appeared on the "Today" show Thursday, where she met them for the first time. "I'm slightly apprehensive, but not nervous," she told Matt Lauer.
Stan, 68, is a filmmaker, who coincidentally previously shot Stewart in a commercial. "I always really liked Martha," he said. "How could you not?"
Larry, also 68, is an executive in international steel trade. "When I read the profile, she expressed the same feelings that all of us this age have," he explained, "a lot of trepidation and the fear of it -- and we're usually not afraid of much."
But Larry admitted that he did have some concerns about potentially dating Stewart, because she is so well known. "It would [make me] look more like an opportunist," he said. "And that's not me."
On her profile, Stewart said she was looking for "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."
"Today" cameras will now follow Stewart on her separate dates with the men. "None of these have been set up. None of this is fake," the TV star explained. "I just want everybody to know that because I want other women in a similar situation to mine to realize that it can be done. ... I hope."
