Kasem, 39, said that like many people, he too has deep-seated insecurities - at 1.72m tall, he feels "girls won't give me a second look" because of his height.The Class 95 DJ, who suggested a topless photo shoot, told TNP: "I'm stripping to put myself in a vulnerable position and I hope that women out there will also be open to being vulnerable and not be afraid to write in. I could meet someone very special."He added: "Some girls have been refreshingly honest to say that they had no idea who I was when they wrote in and just wanted to give love a shot."I would love to find someone that I'm truly compatible with."He joked: "I would have taken off my pants as well to show how serious I am, but the photographer wouldn't allow it."He once longed to be 1.8m tall, but has since learnt to live with his height and count his blessings.Kasem, who is of Irish-Lebanese descent, said he has always been in good health and has a fantastic metabolism.
