>> millions of people have done it. what we know is we can get you great first dates. finding a soul mate might be difficult. for anyone it's tough, but for celebritie celebrities, dating is so different. we can get you great guys who you can have a great time with.

>> i don't like the word soul mate .

>> advice. should she go under martha stewart or a photo or no photo.

>> this is my most recent photo. it's pretty, right? you like this?

>> you can use them both. don't choose. i would recommend not putting your true identity because it would be distracting to the initial conversations where everything will be about talking to martha as opposed to getting to know the person first.

>> the crazies.

>> they don't like the word crazies. that's not good.

>> the problem with attractive women online is they get inundated with messages.

>> you know what you are looking for if a man. what are you looking for in a relationship? a companion or a partner and would you consider marrying again?

>> depends.

>> that's okay. not everyone is looking for the same relationship. that's why it's important to put who you are looking for.

>> i like to have breakfast with somebody and go to bed with somebody. sleep with someone.

>> you would be a popular online dater.

>> when did this start with you?

>> i just wrote this book and it's a very professional relationship.

>> the first time i met martha we talked about her past suitors. this is a subject that has been on her mind for a long time.

>> we can launch this now?

>> i have to fill out the application.

>> two words too. we will work on that. sam, thank you. dan , thank you. martha , you are a great sport.
