London, August 21 : Life suddenly changed for a man who has slept with over 150 women when he applied to the dating show 'Would Like To Meet', and met his wife Karolyn on the TV programme.
Paul Crooke, who acted as the third party for married couples to fulfil their fantasies of having a threesome, leads his life as a happy family man with Karolyn and their 21-month-old daughter Genevieve these days.
Before his appearance on the show, Crooke had slept with more than 150 women.
He has revealed that he decided to apply to the show when he got bored of his lifestyle.
Paul was one of the 12 singletons who were given a makeover by body language and flirting coach Tracey Cox, confidence instructor Jeremy Milnes, and style guru Jay Hunt.
His final date on the show was his wife Karolyn, with whom he presently lives in Walsall, W Mids.
"I owe them a wife and a baby! It might sound trite but I owe them everything," the Mirror quoted him as saying.
Paul said that he could not be emotionally intimate with women before the show, due to his break-up with his first wife when he was 26.
However, he added, a sudden transformation occurred during the show that enabled him to woo Karolyn, while the cameras were rolling.
"When Karolyn watched the show after we met, and saw what I was like before, she was quite clear that she wouldn't have dated me. I wasn't boyfriend material, let alone future husband and father material," he said.
Paul's only previous long-term relationship was with his teenage sweetheart, who he met when he was 17 and married at 21.
However, five years later, they'd grown apart too much to salvage their relationship, and divorced.
