Tim Gunn Hasn't Been on a Date in 26 Years

Tim Gunn is undeiably one of the most loved men on television. He has a charming demeanor, an unfathomable vocabulary, and an impeccable sense of style. But while it may seem that Mr. Gunn has it all, he's in fact missing something fundamental-a nice, equally as charming guy to share all his good fortune with. In a recent interview with Ok magazine, the Project Runway star admits that he's lacking in the love department. So much so that he hasn't been on a date in 26 years! That's almost as old as I am! Can you imagine? I don't mean to be mean but they need to send a spelunking crew down there STAT to clear the cobwebs and oils the squeaky joints. I mean twenty six years! I can't even imagine!!! When asked what he looks for in a relationship, Mr. Gunn replied by saying "I haven’t been on a date in 26 years [laughs]. So no, I have no relationship. I’m not even remotely looking. To have a relationship would require time. I don’t have any time, so it wouldn’t be fair to someone else. It might sound selfish, but I’m very happy being alone." This is illegal. Tim Gunn is too magnificent not to share himself with someone! I can understand liking time to yourself, but who doesn't want someone to share everything-their love, their trials and tribs, their reproductive parts-with?
Anyway, in an effort not to dwell, here's the rest of the interview with Senor Gunn in which he talks about Angelina Jolie, Michelle Obama and what he would do if he ran the country:
OK!: Which celebrity has great style?
Tim Gunn: Oh, Angelina Jolie. She and Brad [Pitt] are Hollywood royalty. Everything about them looks perfect. They are beyond beautiful. Breathtaking, stunning.
OK!: Do you like Michelle Obama’s style?
TG: I am in complete disagreement with critics who say there’s too much skin showing when she wears shift dresses. What are they talking about? It’s an arm!
OK!: What would be your first act if you were president?
TG: I would question the trillions of dollars we’re spending on the Iraq war. I’d invest in medical care and education for all.
OK!: Are you messy or neat?
TG: I have a dishwasher I never use because I can’t stand the thought of dishes that aren’t washed. I wash them after every meal.
OK!: How do you like to relax?
TG: There’s no greater pleasure for me than being alone in my apartment. I’d love to have a dog, but I’m away too much.
OK!: Would you do Dancing With the Stars or Celebrity Apprentice?
TG: Never in a million years, even if they paid me all the money on earth, would I do either.
OK!: Are you in a relationship?
TG: I haven’t been on a date in 26 years [laughs]. So no, I have no relationship. I’m not even remotely looking. To have a relationship would require time. I don’t have any time, so it wouldn’t be fair to someone else. It might sound selfish, but I’m very happy being alone.
OK!: What’s your advice for teens coming out?
TG: It takes tremendous courage. I didn’t know who I was when I was a teen. I didn’t come to terms with any of it until my mid-twenties. I pushed all those feelings into the back of my being because I didn’t know what to do with them. They just made me uncomfortable.
OK!: What’s the biggest challenge you’ve overcome personally?
TG: A debilitating stutter that I had until my late teens. I got over it with therapy and tenacity. Overcoming it allowed me to flourish socially when I had been extremely withdrawn.
OK!: You’re supporting the Address Your Psoriasis! campaign. Why this cause?
TG: I have a sister who has psoriasis. People with psoriasis feel like they can’t be who they want to be fashion-wise. Our message is that, through proper treatment, you can do whatever you want in terms of lifestyle. (Go to psoriasis.com for more information.)
OK!: Describe Heidi Klum.
TG: She’s the warmest, loveliest individual. She’s never late and she knows everybody’s name on the Project Runway crew. She’s a doll. I just love her.
Ok not to beat a dead horse but a loveless Gunn makes me sad. Who do you think would make the perfect mate for this amazing man?

I don't feel so bad now! I love Tim Gunn and I do understand how he feels.
