Had a multi one....on and off for 11 years, never loved me, loved his money and himself more....but as far as I am aware, he didn't advertise....Yacht, Jet, lifestyle....our children went to prep school together, but I was Julia Roberts and am not regrettful! x
I appreciate your perspective. I am a new widow, and am trying to understand being single. My husband and I worked hard and over time built up assets. I thought perhaps at this site money would not be an issue, and therefore, no one would be interested in mine but instead me.
I am learning to grow my patience. It's probably a good thing.
Thank you for your text. It reinforces my thinking.
Also, being a millionaire doesn't mean as much as it used to.
I make less than 100,000 a year, but am a millionaire (barely). I don't own ANY of the 'bling' - which is largely why I am a millionaire. I wasn't stupid enough to waste money on crap. Yeah, I want a Panther Amphicar, but I'm not going to buy one (at least not until I retire and have a nice lake near my home that I can drive my car into and go fishing from it.
Anyone expecting me to take them to Italy once a month is in for a nasty surprise.
But I am a real millionaire - as long as you count my real estate and 401K
I have seen a few fake profiles on here I must admit. I came to this site because I was looking for love and romance and have had the worst in life, so thought I would reach for the top for once. I have met a few millionaires in the last few months and none of them have been from this website.
I am here because I want a man who has drive and ambition and has an amazing soul. I admit I would like to be spoilt, I have never really had that happen in my life ( have not been on a candlelit dinner or even had a massage in my life). I don't want much and love is the top wish I have. I can live on almost nothing but if I could change that I would. I though if a man had the money he might actually take me out and treat me special. The millionaires I have met are atleast 15- 20 years older than me and though really nice gentleman are not my type.
I want to be with a man who has it all together and it seem's to be men with money that do. I am going on a lot of experience and past and can honestly say that men on a low income work their butt's off too but I don't see them wanting to go far in life. They don't have drive or ambition or are not proud of their work or job.
I'm not looking for a relationship at this time. I actually signed up because of the forum - people here seem much more sane and articulate than those in some of the other forums that I've reviewed.
I do have a question though. If someone, man or woman, is affluent, why doesn't he or she insist on a pre-nuptial agreement? I know that some people have them but it seems as though the majority, including celebrities, do not. I have the distinct feeling (from articles and posts that I've read on other sites) that people are reluctant to bring up the subject because they believe that the other person may accuse them of "lacking trust". To me, if a person really loves you for yourself and not your money, they wouldn't be opposed to signing a pre-nup. And no, I'm not one of those wealthy people so I'm not asking this from the point of view of somene who has assets. I simply believe that a pre-nup is not only fair but a good way of getting that money issue and uncertainty (does he/she love me or my money) out of the way. Am I in the minority?
I have ALWAYS gone for love. As a hard worker, and attractive, I was a fool for boys/men who wanted my abundance. As a young women, an mature lady advised me, and of course I did not listen, but I have tried to instil this in my incredibly beautiful and smart daughter from day one.
"Don't look for money, but don't look where there is none." And "You can just as easily truly love a smart, rich boy as you can a cute, dumb, broke ass."
I am truly not ruthless, I have just worked hard, got ahead, and then fell for a 'conman'.
Not bitter still believe.
I am quite firmly in the cash millionaire camp. A few things you should know:
1) Being a millionaire doesn't mean you own a $2m yacht. You really ought to be worth at least $100m to have something like that. Expect a younger blue collar millionaire (e.g. Banker, lawyer, CXO) with a net worth of up to $5 million to be pretty normal but with nicer clothes, car, home, perhaps a smaller boat.
2) Many millionaires don't like wasting money. Many of us worked hard to get where we are, and we still work hard. Money is not frivolous to us - it is earned. Warren Buffet drives a Lincoln Towncar. That's pretty low key. The guys I see blowing money on bottles of champagne in night clubs are usually poor. Wealthy guys spend more discretely and in higher quality venues.
3) Sites like these are fantastic because you can find an intelligent, sensible and down to earth woman here. I don't want to marry some spoilt brat or party girl who has been drinking champagne since the age of 16. I'm a self made man. I was born into a middle class family and while I am a 1 percenter, I still have those rock solid middle class values. I want someone who is financially responsible, down to earth, able to connect with regular people, but also brilliantly smart and able to hold an intelligent conversation on topics ranging from politics to epistemology. I won't find someone like that from an elite matchmaker, nor at a beach party in the south of France.
WOW. Being wealth does not always mean money . I do not know much about this web site .But Forbes Magazine said it was the best site. That's how I found it . So who cares if a person has money .Just enjoy life. And there is and old. WHAT'S FOR YOU IS FOR YOU . Have a great day .
