We all know at least one gold digger. And while not all of them are willing to admit it, there are certain women who specifically want to marry into wealth. But unless you grew up spending weekends at your grandfather’s exclusive country club or summering in the Hamptons, it can be a challenge for the average gal to find her millionaire in shining armor out on the streets. And not all of us are ready to publicly shame ourselves by going on “Millionaire Matchmaker” where Patti Stanger will yell at us for the rest of America to see. But for the more discreet yet determined woman, there are numerous websites that cater specifically to the wealthy crowd of men who are looking for love…as well as the women looking for their bank accounts.
MillionaireMatch.com – Are you just a simple gal who is looking for a good old-fashioned millionaire? This is the leading dating website that “offers an inventory of men who earn at least six figures annually.” Apparently Charlie Sheen was a member of the site for several months until he was outed by another number, but don’t let that deter you. Stay open-minded: you just might end up finding your D-list celebrity dream crush on this site.
MissTravel.com – Want to lead the exciting fast-paced life of a jetsetter but don’t have the funds to back your extravagant dreams? The tag line for this website is: “Date abroad – attractive girls travel free.” The site pairs up “generous travelers” (wealthy men who have the money to travel but are looking for a companion) with “attractive travelers (women who don’t have the money to travel but are also looking for a companion). Christmas in Paris, anyone?
Sugardaddie.com – Never mind the creepy name. Only the “finest people in Internet dating” can be found here, according to the website. Doctors, lawyers, busy professionals, benefactors and so forth are just a mouse click away. And don’t think this site is just for women – there are “sugar babes” (aka. wealthy women/cougars) for all you men out there.
WhatsYourPrice.com – This site has taken the concept of dating and repurposed it with an eBay twist. Instead of just creating a profile and going out on a date with some guy, why not let several rich guys bid on you? That’s right – turn your dating profile into a live auction as various wealthy men attempt to outbid one another to see who gets the chance to spoil and pamper you. If you’re okay with the moderately creepy nature of this site (is anyone else reminded of that scene from Taken where Liam Neeson has to rescue his drugged-up daughter from that sketchy underground auction?), then this is perfect for you.
BillionaireFish.com – Why date a millionaire when you can date a billionaire? It doesn’t hurt to set your standards as high as possible, especially when you can marry someone who is Bill Gates-rich as opposed to George Clooney-rich. According to the site, all of the members have their identities, incomes and professions verified prior to signing up, and their extensive menu of billionaires includes Hollywood celebrities, professional athletes, CEOs and CFOs. And apparently the women who join the site are Playmates and models, so unless you were in the July spread of the most recent issue of Playboy, you might want to get some fresh headshots just to keep up with the competition.
