Online manhunt FAIL for love-starved domestic diva MARTHA STEWART!

LOVE-STARVED Martha Stewart’s attempt to find Mr. Right online has fallen flatter than a collapsed souffle!

With much fanfare, the 72-year-old domestic diva announced on the “Today” show in April that she was going to land a man by using the Match.com Internet dating service.

After sifting through more than 1,000 potential suitors, she narrowed the field down to interna­tional steel executive Larry Traub and commercial filmmaker Stan Schofield, both 68. Shortly after, both appeared on the morning program with the multimillionaire entrepreneur.

Martha enthused about getting to know Larry over drinks and enjoying dinner with Stan.

“But the reality is she hasn’t gone on any more dates with either of these guys,” revealed a source close to the media mogul. “Martha is so darn finicky that she didn’t really give Larry or Stan the time of day after their initial meeting.”

When The ENQUIRER contacted Martha’s two “dates,” neither hinted at a romance, let alone an intimate love connection.

“Hopefully we can just remain friends,” Larry told The ENQUIRER.

Stan also seems to have given her the big kiss-off, saying only: “I will always like Martha.”

Although Martha vows to carry on with her manhunt, there don’t appear to be any prospects on the horizon.

“If Martha continues with her picky attitude,” said the close source, “she’s destined to be a lonely old biddy.”
