Who Should Date Stan?!

Eligible bachelor Stan Frantz, FOF’s 59-year-old email programmer, is looking for love. So this February, we posted Stan’s bio and invited you to tell us why you’d like to date him. Over 40 fab FOF women wrote us to say they’d love to date Stan. After much (fun) debate, we’ve narrowed it down to the three lovely FOfinalists, below. Now, it’s up to you: Vote for who you think is the best match for Stan! (Click here to see his dating profile, if you need a reminder.) We’ll send the winner and our bachelor out on a romantic date. Help us make a love connection!


Bachelorette #1: Laura Wilson
Location: Birmingham, Alabama
Age: Over 50
Profession: Nursing Coordinator

From her note to Stan:
“I am a true Southern girl. Now that my children are grown, I want to find my soulmate if possible. I love nature and all creatures, great and small, furry and feathered. I have an almost childlike natural curiosity and love to marvel at the beauty in the world. My own dream, if I had a man (wouldn’t be much fun to do alone), is to have a very small farm with a few pet farm animals and a nice sustainable garden with both veggies and flowers. I also love to paint, so would be painting along with canning on my little farm. The place you have created for yourself is not too far off from mine.”

What’s your favorite thing about Stan?
“I like that he has a good sense of humor, laughing is fun! He also has a nice open face, too, and I appreciate a man who can fix things!”


Bachelorette #2: Elisa
Location: Portland, Oregon
Age: 59
Profession: Retired Teacher (“everything from Pre-K to High School!”)
Married once and divorced.

From her note to Stan:
“I am also looking for a life partner, and hopefully a soul mate. In the interim, I am living my dreams. Currently I am on a 5-week vacation in the Cook Islands, meeting people both local and international, making friends, learning and experiencing. I am a friendly person and make friends wherever I go. I am also financially secure but not materialistic. Experiences and laughter mean a great deal to me. I also have a passion for travel, and it sounds like we have much in common.”

What is it about Stan that attracted you most?
“I really like Stan’s smile!  It tells me that he is genuine, caring, vivacious and interested in life.  I am the same way. Additionally, I was surprised by how many mutual interests we have!”

What’s your idea of a great first date?
“Laughter!  And conversation.  A first date is about getting to know each other, yet it is not an interview. I would love to go somewhere quiet and romantic to talk–or walk and talk!


Bachelorette #3: Carolyn Diamond
Location: Philadelphia, PA
Age: 55
Profession: Makeup artist, medical aesthetician, public speaker and writer
Married once and divorced.

From her note to Stan:
“How refreshing. A man who is down-to-earth and appreciates the important things in life. Brains, handsome, and if he works for FOF he must know a woman’s heart. I’d love to throw my hat in the ring.

Tell us more about what you do.
I’m a makeup artist in the beauty, entertainment and media industries.  I also volunteer my time to help women facing breast cancer so they can look their best when it’s needed most. From experience I know, to look good is to feel good. And, as Coco Chanel said ‘All it takes is a new tube of lipstick to lift your spirits.’ This really does hold true.”

What’s your idea of a great first date?
“One that has laughter and a sense of comfort.  I’m down to earth and not one for flash. Not to say I don’t appreciate the finer things in life. I just have a greater appreciation for integrity, honesty, intelligence, kindness, and a great sense of humor.”

    Update: Did Stan and Elisa make a love connection? Any photos?

  2. Debra S. says:

    LOL Laura would be in heaven on earth on Stan’s place! I know I would. But I’m married already! LOL

  3. DHWE says:

    Good luck to all 3 of the ladies. 🙂

  4. Tom says:

    Elisa is by far the best of the best match. I’ve known her as a boss, supervisor, colleague, co-retiree, and good friend. She is worldly and wise, so kind hearted, and caring, extremely intelligent and refined, but so down to earth and so aware and sensitive to life issues. Mature minded with focus and always a positive outlook and supportive nature, not to mention a most beautiful person and most gorgeous woman. Yep, she’s got my vote. You’d be a damn fool to miss this opportunity.

  5. Terri says:

    Choose ELISA! She is an amazing person who is caring, intelligent, fun, humorous, outgoing, adventurous and so compassionate about life! She will bless your life!

  6. Sunny smith says:

    I know laura personally and she is fab and sexy you will never find a prettier woma overr fifty. Signed SSmith

  7. Esther says:

    Elisa is the most beautiful person I know–inside and out. Stan will feel so blessed when he meets her!

  8. Jewel Hopson says:

    Laura wants to live a lifestyle similar to Stan’s. They both seem to want to feel and smell the earth while appreciating nature. However, all three ladies seem like good choices for this great catch. Good luck, Stan!

  9. Soledad says:

    It was a choice between one and three for me. I chose Carolyn, #3, because she says that she is down to earth and doesn’t like flash but still likes the finer things in life. That compliments Stan’s personality I think. Also, the fact that she lives in the same state would make it easier for them to get together. Even though she still works I think she would make time for the right man.

    I didn’t choose Elisa because she seems to be too much like Stan and that’s not necessarily a good thing.

  10. Stan says:

    Should I say who I voted for?

    • Charlotte says:

      HAHA Stan! It has to stay a total secret who you voted for! But I’m amused that you’re voting. Almost 200 women voted…YOU’RE FAMOUS!

    • Helen says:

      Lovely ladies all. I have an idea which one….but, pray tell…… So I know whether I am right!

      • Stan says:

        Charlotte says I can’t. ;-(
        but Lina is the boss!
        I asked her and she hasn’t answered that yet…
        she did say maybe I could have 2 dates, if my pick didn’t win. then we could compare who was right, me or the wise and beautiful women of Fab Over Fifty!

  11. Marne says:

    Initially pulling for Carolyn since living in PA already is a good start and long distance romance is a huge obstacle. Elisa sounds like the best match though.

  12. thereislightonthehorizon says:

    I couldn’t bring myself to vote because measuring these things is not a specialty of mine. NOPE, don’t participate in singing, designing or game shows either 😉

    Good Luck to all the interested parties ! Maybe Stan will take the time to go over some of the correspondence this generated and find his true friend 🙂

  13. Mary says:

    Even before reading the bios for the lovely women, my first impression from just the photos was Elisa. It was intuitive! (No, I am not a psychic! I can’t even explain why I am participating in this little “contest” except that I have immense curiosity about human relationships and the many forms of love.) I wish all four of these people my best and send all of them love and light in this moment.

    Everything always works out for the best, most highest good and truth, goodness and beauty abound.

  14. 3thingsuneed says:

    oh and just to add to my comment.. I think that Elisa has more time in her life to travel and spend more time doing..with Stan than the other 2 ladies have.. Plus Elisa seems more carefree and spur of the moment type..


    • ste says:

      I agree completely, Elisa seems definitely to be the right match! She’s also the most beautiful (with absolutely no offense to the other contestants…)

  15. 3thingsuneed says:

    Elisa and Stan seem to have the same basic view of the World and all it has to offer..
    These two would be love at first site I think and are destine to be Soul Mates

  16. Eileen Davis says:

    Elisa has the heart.
