Donald Lawson, $337M Powerball Winner, Looks For Love Online

Posted: Updated:

Who wants to date a millionaire? That's what Michigan Powerball winner, Donald Lawson, is asking in his Match.com profile.

The 44-year-old retired railroad engineer (and self-professed 'hillbilly') is hoping for the same luck that brought him a $337 million jackpot last month, the third-largest prize in Powerball history.

According to the Daily Mail, Lawson, who goes by the nickname 'Dinodadog' on the dating site, says he's looking for a woman who is "big and beautiful, curvy, full-figured, heavyset, a few extra pounds."

And though he's got high hopes when it comes to sexual compatibility, listing his favorite films as "any pornos," Lawson is presumably looking for someone with an equal interest in living a simple life.

In an interview following his win, Lawson said he didn't see a lavish life in his future. "Yeah, I’m a millionaire now, but I’ll still (go to) McDonald’s... I don’t like filet mignon or lobster. A simple life. That’s what I want to continue to do,” he said according to the New York Daily News.

Suitable prospects might also need to consider relocating. As MyFox Detroit reports, the Lapeer, Michigan resident (and Arkansas native) noted at a press conference that he didn't plan to stay in the town some 58 miles from Detroit. He also didn't specify, however, where he plans to go.
