Martha stewart and online dating
You're the ultimate media mogul, can DIY a floral arrangement that could make us cry, and then turn it into the most exquisite potpourri once it has wilted. Right, she did what so many of us and our peers have tried: She went online.
So, instead of just sitting back and waiting for Mr.
So while she decided to use her real name anyway, she hopes Mr.
Right will value her “adventurous spirit” more than her fame and money.
On the TODAY Show, Stewart said she decided to give a chance after seeing several of her employees land successful dates on the Internet.
In fact, her nephew, Dan Slater, author of the book “Love in the Time of Algorithms,” also appeared on the TODAY segment, in addition to Match.com’s chief executive Sam Yagan.
On the TODAY Show Monday, Stewart announced she was joining the online dating website That remains to be seen, but according to her profile, she describes herself as “entrepreneurial,” calls her politics “very liberal,” and ticks off predictable interests such as cooking, fishing, gardening, landscaping, movies, videos, museums, antiquing, dining out, and travel: “So while I’m open to all kinds of people, and love to be surprised, here’s what I know I appreciate in a man: Someone who’s intelligent, established, and curious; and who relishes adventure and new experiences as much as I do. A lover of animals, grandchildren, and the outdoors.
This is still parodied in commercials and on the comics pages, but it’s drifted pretty far from fact.
After all, everyone knows someone who’s an online dater.
The problems of online dating are different than the initial stereotype.
It is not so much that all the people bear no resemblance to their profiles and turn out to be uncomfortably racist or wheeze through their teeth when they speak. Then again, the argument that “If Martha Stewart is doing it, it must be normal, cool, and mainstream now” cuts only so much hand-packaged artisanal mustard.
