Martha Stewart wasn't kidding when she said last week she's looking for a boyfriend.

With experts on hand to offer their advice, Stewart told the "Today" show on Monday exactly what she's looking for.

"I'd like to have breakfast with somebody, I'd like to go to bed with somebody, sleep with somebody," Stewart said.

"Today" host Matt Lauer was visibly shocked and amused, but Dan Slater, her nephew and author of "Love in the Time of Algorithms," came to his aunt's defense on the show.

“The first time I met Martha, we spent most of the evening talking about her past suitors,” said Slater. "This is a subject that has been on her mind for a long time. She's ready to go.”

Match.com CEO Sam Yagan who also appeared with Stewart on Monday's "Today" show gave her some dating tips suitable for the media mogul's celebrity status.

“What we know we can get you is some great first dates. I think finding a soul mate for you might be a little bit difficult, but I think first dates are easily doable,” Yagan told her. "For anyone, promising a soul mate is tough, but especially for celebrities because their dating life is so different.

Yagan also dispensed advice about her profile photo and name and advised her against using her real identity.

"I think it will be distracting to those initial conversations you have where everyone is going to be about talking to Martha as opposed to really getting to know the person first," Yagan said.

The domestic maven told Matt Lauer in an interview last week that she was looking for someone “energetic, outdoorish" and "really smart.” She tried filling out an application for Match.com and became exasperated from the process.

"I started to laugh half way down the page. It was like, impossible," she said.
