In a column written for the Irish Independent, singer Sinead O’Connor writes that she considered signing up for a dating agency to find a man but knew that if she did, it would end up all over the media.
Instead, it looks like she decided to put her man-hunt in the papers herself, describing her ideal mate in the column, and even including an email address for those interested in applying to be her soul mate.
The 44-year-old O’Connor says she is looking for a man who is “snuggly.”
Her other criteria include:
“Must be living in Ireland but I don’t care if he is from the planet Zog.”
“Must be blind enough to think I’m gorgeous.”
“Stubble is a non-negotiable must. Any removal of stubble would be upsetting for me.”
“Leather trouser-wearing gardai, fire-men, rugby players, farmers and Robert Downey Jnr will be given special consideration.”
Men who are out of work, under the age of 44, or named Brian or Nigel need not apply.
