If you dream of being romanced in style, from vacations in private islands to Cartier solitaires on your fingers, your best bet is to date single men, loaded with the greenbacks. However, the most crucial part about dating the rich guys, is to know where to look for them. They are not your average guy-next-door, who you can come across at the coffee shop around the kerb or at the grocery store. Single rich men hang around only in special places when they are not shut up in their offices, working to make more millions. Here are however, a few places where you can try your luck in finding single rich men.
If you want to meet the successful professionals, then hang out in places nearest to their offices. High class pubs near lawyers’ or doctors’ chambers are likely venues, since busy people rarely venture far from their workplace, when they wish to relax with a drink after a hard day. But know when to go, since you are unlikely to meet many people if you land up in such a pub during peak working hours. Late evenings, especially at the beginning of a weekend, will usually see the regular patrons getting together to have a good time.
Premium golf clubs
Golf links are popular haunts of successful businessmen and executives, where contracts are negotiated and deals are struck. Memberships to such clubs are generally hugely expensive but see if you can get a day membership. Better still, try to tag along with a rich friend, as a guest, and then make the best possible use of your opportunity. Again, timing is a big factor. Late afternoons on working days or late mornings on weekends may be the best time for powerful people to practice their power drives.
Men who are rich and single have only their personal fancies to indulge. Many among them are avid collectors of artworks or antiques. So make it a point to follow what is going under the hammer at the best known auction houses in town and then visit them on the important days. You are likely to find quite a few rich guys, bidding for their favourite piece and if you are lucky, there may even be someone single among them. However, keep in mind that the really rich and busy men will have their agents at their auction houses but then, that is a chance you will just have to take. Some of those attending the auction are likely to be older. Generally people from traditionally rich families attend auctions of antiques.
Premieres and parties
If you want to meet single men who are rich as well as famous, the best place is to hang out at events and parties related to the entertainment industry. Movie and theatre premieres are occasions when the rich and beautiful people come together. If you can, wrangle an invitation to the hottest post-premiere parties which generally go on till the early hours of morning and thus offer a longer time to socialize. However, do your homework before attending such events so that you know who is a genuine actor/producer/singer and who is merely pretending to be one.
Guys who have the dough to spare and no partners to spend on, are likely to be avid sports lovers. Frequent the high-end sports bars and see if you can find someone suitable. Other good places to meet rich and single sports fans are the exclusive galleries in stadiums at important matches or post-victory parties of famous sports teams. But be sure to know your Mets and Giants before chatting up that rich-looking guy at the bar or you might end up making a fool of yourself.
Luxury spa resort
What better way for a single and successful executive to de-stress, than to take a day off at the spa? Visit a luxury resort which offers exotic massages and relaxing treatments and you may come across someone rich and available. The main drawback of this venue is that the number of potential candidates is likely to be limited. On the plus side however, if you do come across a suitable guy, he is more likely to be relaxed and open to meeting someone interesting.
This is another popular venue where the rich and successful people gather. Even though the main purpose of these $500-a-plate dinners is to support their favourite cause, such events are important places to be seen if one is to make a mark on the social scene at. It is likely that you will find that all the male guests arriving with a date, but in most cases, the women will be partners only for the evening and so go ahead and chat up the guys. However, be sure to look and dress your best, since first impressions do matter when you are dealing with those who have the best of everything.
Professional matchmaking services
Most matchmaking services have a section devoted to rich members. You could sign up for such services and express your desire to meet rich available men as potential partners. However, such men will have their own expectations in women and the matchmaker will get you two together, only when your mutual expectations coincide. But not all rich and available men are looking for rich women. There are some who would prefer their partners to have other qualities, like a caring or non-materialistic disposition.
Places of business
If you are looking for a rich man to date, hang out in places they are most likely to frequent, like banks, convention centres or coffee shops in business districts. Here, the rich guys may be busy with work, but wait for lunch-hours or coffee-breaks to find time to chat them up and who knows, you may land yourself a date on Saturday.
If you are looking for the big fish, find a way to be seen at the millionaire clubs. These are the places where the really rich boys hang out. Cocktail parties and weekend bashes are only some of the events regularly hosted at such venues, where the rich and single can take their pick of the attractive ladies. While it may take some hard work to get access to such exclusive venues, once there, you have opportunities galore. But be certain to look your most seductive, as super-rich men are used to having the best.
The rich and successful among men generally have their own hang-outs. So, the key to meeting them is to know where to find them. Don’t fret if most of these places appear too expensive to frequent, which they usually are. The most important thing is to be seen at these places and then make the best possible use of your opportunities.
