I think I'm serious. That doesn't mean I would fly to Italy just to meet someone, at my risk, my expense, time, and stress. And that's just the first meet.....the cost skyrockets from there. And to what end? Citizenship? Marriage? A ton of issues.
There are real people here on MM, with money, but international dating is tenuous at best, especially for those of us who do not routinely travel abroad for business.
If I were interested in meeting a rich American man, because somehow the well ran dry in Italy, I would consider moving to the U.S. and start my search from the home turf. I would do the same, if I desired an Italian wife. Honestly, I don't know how one stays beyond the 90 day visa, but it's something I would research if my desire was strong enough.
Relax, you are taking life too seriously. Sure, there are real men on this website, and yes there are real millionaires on this website. I happen to know one who is on track to be a billionaire in about two years.
You are too much of a stuffed shirt to know when a really good man is looking you in the face.
