SOMERSET, N.J., Feb. 2 (UPI) -- A New Jersey woman says she's heard from more than 100 potential suitors since launching her Web site "52Weeks2FindHim.com."

"I was totally surprised," said Neenah Pickett, 42, a media consultant from Somerset, N.J., who launched her husband hunt on New Year's Eve.

Pickett has been on nine dates so far and has felt some sparks, she said, adding she ruled out anyone who sent a photo of themselves with their shirt off.

"Immediately, I'm turned off. I don't know you, I don't want to see that," she said of the shirtless, noting she also ruled out strangers who gushed compliments such as "Baby, you're so beautiful."

Pickett said she has the first dates down to a science: Meet the man at a diner for coffee and keep it short, The New York Daily News reported Monday.

"I want it to be a nice, slow process. Sometimes we get too excited too quickly and crash and burn," said Pickett, who feels overwhelmed by it all, "but in a good way," she said.
