Woman on a Mission to Marry in 52 Weeks.

Pickett, a 42-year-old media consultant from New Jersey, launched a Web site Thursday called www.52weeks2findhim.com to help her meet her future mate by next New Year's Eve.

It's online dating to the extreme, but Pickett thinks it's so simple, it just might work. A man can just go on her site and fill out a profile.

"I think what happens a lot is men will go to the dating Web sites and they just sort of have to plow through hundreds of different profiles," Pickett said today on "Good Morning America."

"The goal was try to make it easier for men and say, 'Here's this Web site where you can easily go and learn about me and watch the videos.' It's not just my picture and you meet me and I look different from my picture. I have videos up there. I have friends talking about me."

To quote fark.com, there is nothing as attractive as a desperate woman past her "use by" date. xp

On the subject of looking desperate, Ms. Pickett acknowledged that her efforts might be perceived as desperate. "I do worry about it," she said. "But I think there's a little of a double standard. I think of shows like 'The Bachelor,' they don't ever refer to the guy as desperate, but always the women."

She makes a good point, but that doesn't change the fact the proverbial shoe fits. The website is one step away from standing on a platform in Times Square with a huge flashing neon sign over your head that reads "Guys, I'm single! Please check me out!". She can rationalize, justify, and try to explain why this isn't a sign of desperation, but actions speak louder than words and these actions scream "I'M DESPERATE! SAVE ME FROM BEING SINGLE!"
