I am looking for a few brave, proud and truthful ladies!
Now let's be real, we are all on here because we want to meet a guy with means or some degree of money, otherwise we would be members of PoorManMatch (not sure if that's a real website lol) instead of MillionaireMatch.
But what I want to know is WHY?
Why do you want to date or marry a wealthy man? What is your background? Where did you grow up? What do you do for a living? And most importantly - HOW DO YOU THINK A RICH MAN WILL MAKE YOUR LIFE BETTER?
I want to hear your unique stories especially from around the globe!!! Please leave comments/speak your mind!
I think women admire a man who has drive and determination. Attracted to a successful man who works hard and can give them a sense of security. Money may not be everything, but a man who is successful shows many other good qualities: hard working, focused, driven, responsible.
I am not really interested in a man's wealth. I chose this site because, the men on this site
appear to take care of themselves i.e. most are concerned about their appearance; well groomed and most are educated, this means I have more in common with people on this site.
I work and have my own money!
Although raised in a solid middle-class family, I have been incredibly fortunate and have lived in Paris, London, New York and LA. Have traveled to Africa several times as well as many European countries. My creative interests have allowed me to become steeped in culture and the arts, seeing amazing plays, operas, ballets, concerts and museums. I have a Masters in Humanities and a PhD in Literature and Writing. My reasons for wanting a successful man are:
I believe in the traditional idea that the man should be the provider and protector of the home (particularly when there are young children at home) and that the woman should be the lover and nuturer of the family.
I do not think I could honestly repsect a man if he could not support a family (I am looking for a man in his 40's, close to my age who would have had enough time to develop his talents and make his way in the world), although anyone that makes a good living is fine...no need to be uber wealthy.
I have two things that I am passionate about and if I were with a supportive husband who was able to provide financially, I could fully pursue writing my book and working for the foundation I am starting on a full time basis. I could NEVER be a "kept woman" who just shops and goes to the gym...I believe we all have gifts and should use them for the benefit of others.
No, not everyone is here to find a rich man. I am here to find an educated man. I have a six figure income and I do not need anyone to support me. And to you ladies who want the money so badly: why don't you earn it yourself. It is a lot easier to make the money than to marry it. Has it ever occured to you that most men in here are only interested in having sex with you and have no intention of ever marrying you. So if it is the money you want and not the man go make your own money.
I am brave and have had to be brave all by myself so maybe the question should be (at least for me), Why get married to anyone...ever?
I only discovered some explanation of what a marriage should be and loved what it said. It explains that a marriage is a Covenant. I will include a link to it. Hopefully it will not be deleted by this site's staff.
I think I may get married if I know the world is ending, or just do that type of marriage in the movie "Cold Mountain" where the couple just says 3 times "I'll marry you" and they're married. If you want to get divorced, I think you would say, "I'll divorce you" 3 times and you're divorced. Can it be any more simple? I like the simple way best. I do love LOVE, the concept of marriage is wonderful, reality though isn't always what it should be though. I refuse to be cynical about love, it can happen. What do you have without love at the end of the day? Nothing.
I'm sure some of you will cringe at the following explanation but it was an eye-opener for me when I read it the first time. Few in today's world have this covenant in it's entirety. An excerpt from this link;
This statement by Paul shows us why the Lord will not bless a man who mistreats his wife. Every woman is designed to be a gift to some man. But she is ultimately a gift from the Lord. The gift is to be cherished, loved, and cared for. This is covenant. Two lives become one. And while it seems we are putting the greater responsibility on the man, this is because he has the greater responsibility. God designed the woman to be weaker in some things, so that she could fit the marriage in her proper role.
To take this a step further, can the marriage covenant be considered a blood covenant? After all, there are various covenants given throughout the Bible, and not all of them are blood covenants. Again we see the mystical side of marriage. God gave the woman a hymen that was designed to be broken in the first act of intercourse. In the breaking of the hymen there is the letting of blood. Thus the Lord built into marriage the blood covenant.
Surely this ideal has been set aside today, and even mocked. But it should go without saying, that the man and woman who will keep themselves sexually pure before marriage, are able to bring into their marriage something to be treasured. You can only have one 'first time' covenant marriage.
I did marry a multi millionaire. Had children and a great life. I divorced him too. Behind the money was a man that had issues and was full of fear. I married again to a poor man. I paid for everything. Put him through school. We were in love. Once he got a great paying job, he left. I learned that both husbands and I did the best we could do at that time. I wish them all the happiness. I'm on this site because I'm ASSUMING the men have a higher intelligence than average. if they do have money, then I'm looking for humble and grateful attitudes.
@noir,, I bet they are both kicking themselves in the arse now though ! ;)

First let me say I am dying to answer this question. lol. I currently have the opportunity to date an extremely multi-million dollar man that I've been trying to decide if I should or not mainly b/c of his age, not his money (he is 20 years older than me). But, that is usually when the money has been had. So I've read and read forums and all of the ladies raise their hands in disgust saying no, no, no do not marry for money!!!!! (not that that would in any way be the reason I would marry him, I was more looking for an answer to the 20 year difference).....anyhow, this is what I wanted to and how my own experience makes me feel about this topic. However, everyone is different.
Rule number one before going any further. There are great guys and there are complete ass holes. Please women, no matter how much money the man has, do not marry an ass hole. The money just makes it worse! That being said, there are nice guys and ass holes in all financial categories. I'm just saying, don't marry an ass hole in general. Now, if he is not an ass hole, go, go, go, go for it!!
For centuries women have been looking for this, wanting this, I mean all the way down to arranged marriages. Only recently has the world been given this notion of "life long love marriages". Love is a chemical reaction that has been proven to not last longer than 24 months. It may turn into a different kind of "love" but that absolute crazy feeling you have for someone at first, is going to fade. So then what is left? ALLLLLLLLL of the other things in life. And A LOT of those other things have to do with money or could use help with money. And that's just the little things, retirement, etc. Not even mentioning the huge luxurious things that can possibly come along with it.
OK, so I'm from the South so maybe that's where this question is a bit easier for me. Mind you I do live in New York now where everyone, even women it seems, is career CRAZED. The South is very different. Most people don't make their career their priority in life (it's usually family), especially women! I believe women down there you would find more likely to admit that they do want the traditional roles of the household, etc.
Now to talk a little bigger than just getting yourself out of a job, let's talk RICH!! Seriously, what is not to like? My only stickler is that he has to be a socialite and very well connected as well because I do like the black tie events and the high end parties to go to. I like to get all dressed up! Maybe it's because this is my background. I grew up in the country club scene where everyone (at least seemingly) was rich. It was the best childhood in the world. Your children meet and grow up around influential people in the community, usually end up better educated, have more access to pretty much everything including sports, etc. (no, it's not about spoiling your kids and giving them everything) And you on the other hand have options of nanny's, housekeepers, cooks, which sound spoiling....but have you ever tried to run a house of 3 or 4 little ones alone??? It's a job for 4 people!!
So, here is the rest of the story and why I am considering it now. After college I packed my things up and took off to New York City as courageous as ever to take on the world!!! Now, it was the best thing I ever did. I've ended up cultured, experienced more than I can explain, and somehow migrated back into this rich scene. However, I have been busting my ass off in the financial world for the last 7 years. And let me tell you, here it is ROUGH. Dog eat dog, male dominant world. (I do understand that most of y'all aren't in careers that extreme) But up until this last year or so I was determined to make it on my own. I believe you just get to an age (me = late twenties) when you start to think about children, houses, etc. and you realize you actually CAN NOT do it all! You need help!! I don't want to be that high powered CEO anymore and it took me a solid 6 months to even allow myself to say that. There are just too many roles in a household for both people to try and do them all. It's better to split them up so that each role can be done correctly.
As far as why would I be a good match? Because I was raised in it. I know how to shake the hands, I know how to sit at the tables, I know how to cross my legs, I know how to correctly address a wedding invitation, the proper time frames on sending gifts, I know how to throw baby showers/wedding showers, cocktail parties, birthday parties, dinner parties, and would be one hell of a super mom. Class dates class. All those books that try and teach you how to marry rich? Start acting like you are from a rich background. Do everything the rich do, plain and simple.
Wealthy people seem to know how to enjoy both the simple life but yet love the finer things in life also i.e art gallery opening, cultural events, networking, fundraiser, trips abroad and even just stilling at home with a glass of wine eatting cheese and crackers or listening to a cd. Im more of a business person and at my young age I perfer to be around liked minded people who enjoy the samething i enjoy;
What is your background?
Im a been to college, worked for profit, non profit and healthcare industry. Im a medical office specialist.
Where did you grow up? What do you do for a living? I grew up in the midwest and im an small business ower
Well, actually I came on this site hoping to find someone interesting to talk to online. I was hoping to find a friend to talk to. If things went well and we both felt comfortable, then perhaps maybe it could progress to something a bit deeper than online pen-pals.
What is your background?
I have am MBA in Accounting and Finance and I am working on my doctorate.
Where did you grow up?
My father was in the military. So, my early years were interesting. I grew up in the desert on the White Sands Missle Range and then came to Illinois. I then resided in a suburban village west of the north shore for many years until I turned 19.
What do you do for a living?
Currently, I am a student. However, I do work, just not necessarily everyday.
And most importantly - HOW DO YOU THINK A RICH MAN WILL MAKE YOUR LIFE BETTER?
A rich man will not make my life better. Me making my life better is up to me and having the perseverance to achieve my own goals. I just want to talk to someone that is interesting. I figured regardless of status I would perhaps meet someone who could share some interesting conversation.
I am just at a point in my life where I am feeling that life is short. I just want to meet a person of substance. I want to meet someone who is positive and full of motivation. I want to met someone who is not afraid to be himself. I want to find a friend I can cheer on to do his best and achieve his goals and I want him to do the same for me.
I am 36 years old and just look at life so much different than I did when I was younger. Life is just too short and I just want to meet someone who gets that.
As for finding the man to marry. I have faith he will come. I don't know who he is or when he is coming. But I just want someone who is looking for the same thing I am. That is love, sincerity, companionship and understanding. I don't ask for too much. I just want something real, something deep, something worth my time and when this wonderful man comes into my life...I want to share with him a love worth living for.
Who could ask for more? I just want to find someone I can give my all to.
Hello! Well the thing is, I hold myself with high esteem. I respect myself and others, and feel like I deserve the best, and I have alot to offer in return.. Everyone has hard times so there is no need to elaborate. I have grown from these experiences nstead of letting them devour me. Im young but wise and fun and a lot more. People say money doesnt provide true happiness. Reality is it helps, without this green paper, you really cant do much. The thought about working to live, scares me. I want to live to work. I have high goals aspiations. Money wouldnt change me only benefit my lifestyle. I am almost a licenced cosmetologist and could easily be independant, but having so.eone else would be nice:)
This is actually an interesting question and it is a good opportunity to do some soul searching.
The truth is that I am looking for a number of things in a man. First, I need to be with a man who I get along with and who is willing to accept me as I am. Second, I would like to find a man who I consider an equal in intelligence, curiosity and education. These things are necessary for a satisfying relationship.
However, I think everyone has fantasies about wealth and many women think that the easiest way to get it is to find a rich man. Also, women are genetically programmed to seek out wealthier men since they may be better providers for their children.
Myself, I have fantasies about wealth too. It would be wonderful not to worry about mortgages or student loans. It would also be great to go back to college without worrying about the debt I will be in when I finish. Finally, I would love to help my parents as they retire so that they can travel and get the most out of their golden years.
Money represents different things to different people but the one thing that everyone agrees on is that they don't want to worry about money.
First up I'm not saying I want to marry a rich man but would have to see how things pan out before any form of decision would be made along those lines. well, seeing I'm new here I thought I'd give you my take as a woman from "down under". I have met some nice single guys (not on this site, just a newy here) but I'm looking for the fire that lights the soul of a passionate man and a passionate man will, by the nature of that passion, be an achiever and my equal. Mediocrity breeds mediocrity and non participation in life just an aimless drifting, although I have to admit there are times when I drift aswell. If you want any more please feel free to contact me Catalley
I came here because I am tired of men thinking that I slept my way here or that items/value was/were handed to me. I have worked d#$% hard and I'm not about to have a man who squandered his money away to try taking from me. So, I came here looking for an equal. I own very nice farmland and am acquiring more right next to my beautiful farm.
