The strategy of snaring a millionaire can be broken down in four steps:
Locating a millionaire
Attracting the millionaire
Dating the millionaire
Getting him /her to the altar.
1. Locating a millionaire
Some places are better for meeting millionaires. These include places they frequent, such as expensive lobby bars, polo matches, yacht clubs, art auctions, charity functions, the golf course and exotic places like the Carribean. You are not going to find Mr. Right unless you are at the right location. Also avoid places like laundromats, Wal-Marts and malls, adult magazine shops, professional wrestling matches and auto parts stores. Some thrifty millionaires may take their own clothes to the laundromat or shop at Wal-Mart. After all, millions aren't made by splurging but millionaires who are higher up are unlikely to.
After spotting the quarry, it is time to go for the kill. Millionaires are flighty creatures and you must work hard to gain their attention. Firstly learn to recognize wealth. It is never flashy, but has a subtle elegance. If you haven’t spotted the object of your affection, join a dating service where affluent men and women meet and date in a discrete manner.
Before you approach your date, you must look attractive and dress immaculately. Classy chic is the best. Designer labels are unnecessary, but avoid skintight lycra garments, mini skirts and boob tubes. Wear subtle, sophisticated colours and avoid shiny and loud colours. Stick to silk, wool and 100 percent cotton. You may consult an image consultant to rehaul your wardrobe. Millionaires notice elegant and classy looking ladies.
Get a manicure and pedicure done. You must be perfectly groomed for action. Invest in a great hairstyle-one which can be maintained easily and looks good for a long time.
To break the ice, you can look for apt situations, like purposely seizing his deck chair when he goes for a drink and later apologizing and starting a conversation, or stealing tennis balls and later get chatting about tennis. The opportunities are all out there; you have to grab the best that suits you.

3. Dating a millionaire
After you have a millionaire smitten, your next task is to keep him interested. This depends on the quality of your dating encounters. On the first date, try and discuss issues that are of common interest and awaken mutual enthusiasm. For this you can prepare yourself before the date by taking time to learn some topics that you can discuss with a millionaire, like sports, cars, current affairs, and stocks. Keep abreast of how the economy is doing and some basic economic trends. Don't approach subjects which make you appear like a gold digger.
4. Marrying a millionaire
Some millionaires can be extremely frightened of marriage, considering the reality of gold-diggers that they encounter daily. It will take a long, careful and deep search by them before they decide to walk up the aisle with someone they like. Considering the high rates of divorce and acrimonious divorce settlements, most millionaires insist on prenuptial agreements. Some women, mostly gold diggers will pretend to be personally insulted if their partner presses for a pre-nup. But if you are interested in a fully committed marriage without financial hang-ups it is best to have a pre-nup signed between the two.
The craze for hunting for rich dates or sugar daddies has led to a spate of television shows. 'The Dating Game' was the pioneer in the 1970s, followed by ‘Blind Date’ and ‘He Said, She Said’. Two recent gold-digging based programmes are ‘Who Wants to Marry a Multimillionaire?’ and “Joe Millionaire”.
This poses the question to all the audience of such shows, “Would you ever marry a multi-millionaire you never met before the wedding.” Some are willing to take the chance of marrying a millionaire only for his money, without checking if personalities match. This is a gamble but then marriages usually are!
