It's official. The Today Show reports that Martha Stewart has changed her mind and decided to become one of the single millions looking for love online on Match.com. The domestic mogul has gone digital and hopes to find a man who wants to date, mate or bed in cyberspace.
After waking up next to the same person for years, finding yourself alone in the mornings can be a tough wake-up call for those recently divorced. And if you're adding the pressure of dating again, it's no wonder you feel more than just a little panicked!
The concept behind Swoon is so simple. You connect your Facebook account -- no questionnaires to fill out, nothing -- and you're flipping through a bunch of Facebook profile photos with first names, ages, mutual friends and mutual interests listed.
