Matchmaking has been around since the late 1950s. From punch card questionnaires to now finding your significant other through an app, it has evolved with technology. Online dating sites provide singles with options based on shared interests to race preference. It has been said that online dating will be a thing of the past, but companies like Match.com which launched in 1995 and Eharmony.com in 2000 prove that there is longevity in this business.
MillionaireMatch.com has been in the business since 2001. Constantly updating their algorithm, listening to customers and adding new features have helped them stay in the game of love. Technical Manager, Carl Feng and Customer Experience Manager, John Martinuk gave insight on where MillionaireMatch is headed in order to stay competitive.
Joresa Blount: With so many dating sites now, how does MillionaireMatch stand out from the competition?
Carl Feng: We were the first and largest millionaire dating site with over 3 million singles. We cater specifically to successful and attractive people, and help them find a match on the same page and with similar lifestyles. We provide the ability for our members to verify their income and photos proving they are who they claim to be. Members have access to 24/7 support, both online by email or live chat, or by phone.
Joresa: What can you tell me about the algorithm to help singles find love? How has it changed over the years?
Carl: Our algorithm would recommend the most suitable matches according to our member's preferences such as gender, age, location, height, body type etc. We also allow members to find nearby matches by enabling their GPS. People with the same interests will be paired up in priority. We are also using AI technology to improve our recommendation system.
Technology has changed dating. According to statics, over 60% of U.S citizens aged between 18-29, have used online dating. It is much more convenient to meet someone. We also found that people are moving from websites to mobile apps. Over 60% of our members access our platform by their mobile phone.
Joresa: A lot of new apps have incorporated the "swipe left or right" feature. Do you see MM doing this in the future?
John Martinuk: I really like that feature, because it's simple. I hear from friends of mine who are not a fan of it. It almost seems too "menu-like" to be able to flip one way or the other based on someone's looks or what they have written on their opening sentence. To each their own, I suppose. We're constantly updating our app, so we may have that feature available soon.
Joresa: You recently added a the feature “Recall”. Can you talk about that?
Carl: The "Recall" feature allows members to recall any sent messages, photos, and even entire conversations. They just need to press on the message and hit "Recall" when they change their mind. The feature was developed by analyzing user behavior and needs - as well as the current digital climate - to keep our members happy and protect their privacy. We have applied for a patent for the feature.
Joresa: How many people actually find love on your site? How do you measure this?
John: We have people coupling up quite regularly, and it comes down to hard work, nothing more. A person actively searching and contacting others is far more successful than say someone who creates a profile with their best pictures and non-offensive bio who just posts themselves up on a site and waits for the fish to bite. We actively keep an eye on our testimonials page, when users decide they want to share their new romance with the rest of us.

LOS ANGELES, May 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- MillionaireMatch, the original millionaire dating app with over 3.6 million users, has introduced a revolutionary unique, patent pending "Recall" feature for their members. It's never been done before — and it could change the way people date.
In an ideal world, messaging always goes smoothly. Everything you say is funny, witty, and interesting — and the person you're talking to is the same. But we all know that not every conversation on a dating app works that way. That's why MillionaireMatch has introduced the original "Recall" feature, allowing members to recall messages, photos, even entire conversations. This unique feature is the first of its kind on any dating app. It ensures that members feel comfortable knowing that, if they change their mind about a person, they can essentially erase any conversation or photo from the conversation history. It not only helps protect their privacy, it guarantees that they feel safe and at ease while using the app.
Committed To Privacy
The feature was developed from analyzing user behavior and needs — as well as the current digital climate. "At the moment, there's a lot of talk about privacy and data issues," MillioniareMatch's spokesperson explained. "We're seeing problems with social media, with businesses — with just about everything. We wanted to make sure our valued users at MillionaireMatch don't ever have to have these concerns. That's why we've introduced the 'Recall' feature — to keep our members happy and to guarantee their privacy is protected. We're committed to staying ahead of the curve."
Using the new feature couldn't be more simple — you press on the message and hit "Recall". Once you choose to recall a message, it is removed from the thread and replaced with "You've recalled a message". Your privacy is intact. Almost everyone on a dating app will have experienced sending a message or a photo that they immediately regret. Finally, there's a feature that actually deals with this very common issue. This feature will work on the app, mobile, and PC — ensuring that you're in control, wherever you are.
More Comfort For Better Connections
It makes sense for the app, which already is a seamless, user-friendly platform to develop a feature like this. The app is designed to maximize user experience — you can search by singles close to you or by users that have been online recently. MillionaireMatch has always been committed to creating the best holistic user experience — including millionaires sharing sneak peaks of their lifestyle and allowing free chatting and verified members. The "Recall" feature is just another way of allowing their elite users to have the best experience when using the app. Finding ways to keep users feeling comfortable and happy leads to better, stronger connections — which is what MillionaireMatch has always strived for. Not only that, MillionaireMatch has applied for a patent for the function, and this cutting-edge patent pending technology will make online dating better.
Unlike many dating sites aimed at millionaires and high-earners, MillionaireMatch is about serious, committed relationships — which is why they consistently put so much effort into making their app user-friendly and rewarding. The "Recall" feature is one of many features that put this app ahead of the pack.

How much does your personal life affect your work life? Can it play a role in your ability to perform, lead, and inspire others? Or, can it lead to stress, exhaustion, frustration, and low confidence?
While many of us think that we can separate our work from love and romance--leaving our work at the office, and our home life at home--some research is revealing that we're not as good at separating the two as we'd like to think we are.
That shouldn't be a huge surprise. Studies have shown that healthy personal relationships are associated with a decreased risk of mortality, a reduction in stress, and an overall sense of wellbeing.
So how do significant others, love lives, or personal relationships truly impact our work? Are we more confident when we are in relationships? Are we more distracted or less distracted?
A study from Harvard showed that married men are less likely to quit a job before finding another. A study of twins found that the married twin earned 26 percent more than their unmarried sibling. Another study found that men in relationships with educated women earn more than their counterparts.
–– ADVERTISEMENT ––
According to a report on CNN, in accordance with CareerBuilder, 21 percent of employees feel their company shows favoritism to employees in married relationships over single employees. And, a survey published in the Guardian suggests that nine percent of employees who quit their jobs leave due to a separation or divorce.
While all of the above are interesting nuggets of fodder, none of them reveal the emotional impact relationships have on our work.
Enter the dating website MillionaireMatch. Established in 2001, it's the first and largest millionaire dating site in the world. Although the company initially didn't have any information I was seeking, they were willing to work with me to conduct a survey of their members.
Select individuals were asked to answer various question., 38 responded, and some of the answers were intriguing.
One open-ended question we asked was, "Why or how does having a solid personal relationship impact your career?" Many answers were simple, like "Two working as a team can divide activities of daily living." Some other answers were, "It provides confidence," "It offers balance," and "It does not impact my career, at all."
And others were a little more in-depth: "I perform well at work no matter what, but having some one in one's life that you are both working towards something makes a huge difference," and "Life is best when it is shared. When your relationship box is left unchecked or not being addressed, it leaves an unclosed loop that drains energy and eventually reduces your drive to succeed."
Obviously, all of us will have a different perspective on the value a relationship could play in the whole of lives. However, this is where the survey responses intrigued me the most.
In the survey, we asked two yes-or-no questions that were purposely worded differently, but could be perceived as very similar to one-another. The first was, "Does having a significant other make you feel more confidant at work?" Of those that responded, 58 percent agreed that a significant other makes them feel more confident.
However, when we asked the next question, "Does knowing someone else believes in you make you produce better results?" a full 71 percent responded with yes--possibly an insight that reveals, as humans, it's more important to have someone in our lives (significant other or not) cheering for us and believing that we can do great work than it is to have a simply have a significant other.
Our relationships can impact all aspects of our lives, even our work. As one respondent wrote, "Only if the relationship is going poorly does it affect me. My work is no different when I'm totally in a healthy relationship, or if I'm totally out of one."
That's a wise answer. Conflict, lack of recognition, and lack of trust can be the demise of any relationship, both personal and professional. But, if someone believes in us, appreciates us, and cheers for us, there's no telling how great we can become--single, married, dating, or whatever.

When the nights get darker faster and the weather is cold, you know that winter is in full swing. The sky turns gray and the wind rushes at you from all directions. During this time, as cold as the weather is outside, it’s always important to find someone who makes your heart warm. The holiday season is all about fun and fellowship with your friends, family, and significant others.
The problem that most people face, however, is finding the right person to share this time with. Dating has become one of the hardest parts of modern society and with time being scarce, finding a significant other can be a challenge.
With the high speed of online dating services, dating has become a task we often streamline. Successful singles are also always busy so it can be hard to find love. That is why many of them choose to use millionaire dating sites like MillionaireMatch to have a higher chance of meeting their perfect match.
The holiday season has become a hot time for singles to mingle. If you’re single and questioning why you should go out during the holiday season, read the three reasons below:
It’s The Happiest Time of the Year
Let’s be honest, the holiday season is filled with joy. This is why it’s prime time to be dating. When most people meet through friends, being around lifelong buddies can only lead to good relationships.
As an example, last Christmas I read a story in the New Yorker that described a forty-four year old man who had yet to fall in love. He rarely returned to his hometown for the holiday season, but this year he decided otherwise. On his second night home, his high school buddy took him out to the new bar in town, where he met a woman he now calls his wife. Being from the same area often connects people on another level, especially when you have mutual friends.
Just Say Yes
One of the flaws with dating in today’s society is that people are afraid to start conversations. In a bar, are you likely to talk with a stranger of the opposite sex? Most people won’t as they’re afraid of the consequences. Think about it though, the worst that can happen is they say no.
Next time you’re out, I challenge you to speak to five strangers of the opposite sex. Strike up a simple conversation, starting with something as easy as, “Where are you from?”. For some reason, modern society has taught us to shy away from these interactions. Don’t be shy, instead realize the worst that can happen is that they don’t want to speak with you.
Take a Risk
When was the last time you called someone out of the blue? I’m talking about an old friend who you used to have a crush on. Chances are you have both matured drastically, and now may be in similar positions.
Catching up with people during the holiday season is great, as you can bring back fond memories, laugh about old times, and talk about plans to meet up in the future. When everyone is joyful during this time of the year, there isn’t much to lose.
With the holiday season upon us, it’s time to get out and find your perfect match. Time is of the essence and you don’t need to waste it. Staying home for a night in is like saying you’re over your thoughts of finding someone you cherish. Take a risk, say yes, and realize it’s the happiest time of the year!

Figures from a recent survey of more than 2,864,400 members of a popular millionaire dating site, MillionaireMatch, has revealed that the habit of smoking is a major consideration when choosing a partner. And not many are digging the prospects of a partner who enjoys a puff.
The many health hazards of smoking are common knowledge. In the recent past, the habit of smoking has become somewhat of a social taboo, thanks to a growing consciousness about healthy and clean living. For those who haven’t felt the motivation to kick the butt even in the face of mounting health risks, here is another good reason to make amends now – the habit can slim down your chances of finding a potentially affluent match, since a majority of millionaires out there are not digging the idea of dating someone who smokes.
According to the data gathered through a survey of more than 2,864,400 members of online dating site MillionaireMatch.com, 93.05 percent of the total certified male millionaire members said that they did not smoke, 2.76 percent said they smoked socially, 0.50 percent smoked regularly while 0.75 percent were trying to quit. Only a mere 2.51 percent fit in ‘please ask me’ category. In their responses, a total of 61.22 percent of respondents said they would prefer to date someone who did not smoke, 11.89 percent said social smokers were acceptable to them, only 0.46 percent were open to partners who smoked regularly, and 9.46 percent were okay with potential partners who were trying to quit. The respondents had the liberty of choosing multiple options for their match preferences.
Similarly, in case of female members, 91.81 percent members said that they didn’t smoke, 2.32 percent said they smoke socially, 0.95 percent were regular smokers, 1.91 were trying to quit and 2.7 percent in the ‘please ask me’ category. Speaking about the traits of their potential matches, 74.08 percent of the respondents preferred partners who didn’t smoke, 8.19 percent were open to social smokers, 0.95 percent were comfortable with dating regular smokers, and 5.32 percent were open to dating people trying to quit.
MillionaireMatch.com is an online dating platform set up in 2001. Over the years, it has emerged as one of the most popular online dating platforms that connects attractive singles with successful singles with a verified income. Given its vast member base, match preferences listed on the site are largely indicative of the prevalent trends in the millionaires dating club.

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- MillionaireMatch, the world's top dating website for millionaire matchmaking, today shared some suggestions for how Halloween should best be celebrated by millionaires or those looking to date one. Like all things millionaire, Halloween is different from what people in everyday life experience. The site offers some suggestions on where to go and what do to be part of the wealthy's Halloween scene.
"Halloween is quickly approaching, and millionaires love to dress up, be sexy, play out fantasies and celebrate one of the most popular holidays in the world," Steve Kasper, the spokesperson of the site, said. "Halloween is a time to be free and creative with costumes, dressing up in outfits to empower or dream. It's a great moment to catch rich people with their hair down and make great connections."
For example, the site notes that many millionaires take the traditional route and stay home or visit their children and grandchildren. It is so much fun for the adults to give out candy with every doorbell and knock on the door. One never knows if a sexy parent is out "Trick-or-Treating" with the children. "Don't forget to introduce yourself," Steve added. "You'll be in costume, which makes it easier to be outgoing and take a risk. Remember to be nice to the kids!"
Some millionaires compete with other wealthy people in very exclusive neighborhoods and enclaves. Along with the expected commercial candy given out to children, millionaires will buy expensive treats, such as chocolates, chocolate-covered pretzels, over-the-top candy apples, other gourmet treats and special toys, gift certificates and gift cards. In some settings, there can be a charity angle to play – doing well in the dating scene by doing good in the world can be a great Halloween matchmaking strategy.
Millionaires may throw lavish private Halloween parties. Look for the catering trucks to know where to drop by. Many millionaires and singles looking for millionaire partners will rent or buy the most beautiful and interesting costumes for house parties and the many advertised exclusive elite club parties. Like, in New York there are theme parties for the affluent. There is a special party, in the theme of Stanley Kubrick's 90s classic "Eyes Wide Shut" at Stage 48's Masquerade Ball, where sexy millionaires can enjoy anonymity, and the ever-fantastic "Cornucopia Majesty" party cruise with their own fancy-dress Eyes Wide Shut extravaganza.
Millionaires love to go top nightclubs and will hire stretch limousines for the night in case they meet desirable costumed singles along the way. Stage 48 will hold their super-exciting Monster Ball 16 and 1 OAK is promoting a Halloween Saturday. In Los Angeles, millionaires will be seeking out parties at The W Hollywood for their rooftop Halloween Masquerade. And, STK, the millionaires' favorite steak restaurant, is hosting an Inside the W Westwood Halloween 2016 Extravaganza. "Playhouse Hollywood," promises hot, affluent, invitees for their Hollywood Halloween Night. "Couture" is holding a super fun Vampire Halloween Masquerade and Costume Party for film and TV stars and producers.
Here are the hottest costumes chosen by millionaires this year: Stepford Wives, David Bowie, Prince, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Mick Jaggar, Brad Pitt, Pharrell Williams, Elton John, Johnny Depp from Pirates of the Caribbean, The Pope, Balloons (just balloons attached to a leotard and tights), Wonder Woman, Audrey Hepburn, Hamilton costumes from the musical, "Hamilton," Bill Clinton, Pokemon, A Starbucks Coffee Drink, Game of Thrones, Ghostbusters, Star Wars, Sexy Kittens and Puppies, Soccer Stars and George Clooney.
MillionaireMatch.com is the original and most respected millionaire-dating site on the Internet. Dating exclusive millionaire singles is a very special niche and MillionaireMatch.com features thousands of members with true success stories.

Celebrities and CEOs reveal their innermost thoughts on their success, and how they achieved it.
Ontario, Canada, September 6, 2016, MillionaireMatch.com, the first and largest millionaire dating site in the world, has just announced the addition of yet another great feature on their site. "Celebrity Interview" provides members with timely interviews of CEO’s of phenomenally successful startups as well as Hollywood Celebrities, such as the cast of Ray Donovan, Shark Tank’s Kevin O’Leary and Robert Herjavec and singer Jason Derulo. The interviews are not only entertaining but informative, filled with the tips and tricks used by the ultra successful to achieve their goals.
MillionaireMatch is an elite club, serving a very exclusive, elite clientele of rich and attractive men and women, CEOs, pro-athletes, doctors, lawyers, investors, entrepreneurs, beauty queens, super models and Hollywood celebrities who are all seeking millionaire dating opportunities and a serious, long-term relationship. Launched in 2001, it has been featured on CNN, ABC and CBS and was voted "Best of the Web" by Forbes.com. No doubt that MillionaireMatch added a new dimension to online dating. Many celebrities choose MillionaireMatch to efficiently save time by filtering out low quality matches. Celebrities are provided with special access to ensure anonymity.
People that have achieved a certain level of success find it harder than ever to find someone interested in them for who they are and not for what they have. Meeting that special soul mate who is interested in a lasting relationship becomes a difficult challenge. Thanks to Millionaire Match, it has become much easier to meet that special somebody who meets the highest standards and is income verified by the team at MillionaireMatch. In fact, they have the most real millionaire members and attractive women who have verified their income and photos. Imagine, over 2.7 million quality members from the highest levels of society. A company spokesperson explained that this is not a site for Gold Diggers or Sugar Daddys. The company reports that thousands of successful matches have been created on MillionaireMatch every month. For people that are successful, public figures or attractive singles, this is the right place.

Members of MillionaireMatch.com, the world's largest dating site for millionaires, offered insights today contrasting Michelle Obama with Melania Trump. The two women have been compared recently in light of allegations that Mrs. Trump plagiarized parts of her speech at the Republican National Convention from an earlier speech by Mrs. Obama. People on the site consider the rivalry between these two "power wives" to be highly relevant to the topic of finding and marrying a wealthy man.
"Our members are frequently pointing out that - first of all, Melania Trump and Michelle Obama are a great deal more alike than anyone gives them credit," said a spokesperson for the site. "We are having a lot of members mention the fact that Michelle Obama is also married to a millionaire. She's got beauty and brains. And, so does Melania. One perspective that's interesting is that our fixation on the idea that she's somehow a 'dumb model' is driven by our general intimidation by a woman who is very smart and very beautiful at the same time. We wish she were dumb. That would make our lives easier to deal with, but she's not dumb at all."
According to the users of MillionaireMatch.com, the plagiarism issue is quite overblown. The phrases that were allegedly stolen from the Obama speech were generic. One Millionaire Match member asked, "Think about how a woman who learned English as an adult might go about writing a speech for national television. Is it surprising that she used a few stock phrases that were also used in a speech by another person?"
One discussion thread on the site asked single women interested in dating wealthy men to think about how Melania Trump and Michelle Obama went about landing their respective husbands. "Was it just looks?" asked a comment. Another replied, "Of course, both women have looks. But, to date in the truly big leagues, as these women did, you have to have more. You have to showcase our smarts but in ways that are enticing, not threatening."
It can be a challenging process to find a millionaire husband. MillionaireMatch.com offers women a smooth path to finding Mr. Millionaire Right. The site is intended to cut through the enormous amount of confusing advice online that aims to help women meet wealthy men. In the view of the site's members, a lot of this advice is not worth much. For instance, sites like Futurescopes.com suggest that women who want to date rich men find him in the workplace. They suggest joining a non-profit. Other sites recommend dying one's hair a different color and so on. MillionaireMatch.com makes it possible to meet in a calm, dignified online venue.
MillionaireMatch.com, started a decade ago, works with a clientele that includes CEOs, pro athletes, doctors, lawyers, investors, entrepreneurs, beauty queens and super models. The site also caters to Hollywood celebrities who are all seeking serious, long-term relationships. With more than 2,000,000 members, goes through a verification process for members who want to present themselves online as "millionaires." The verification involves a confidential review of personal financial statements, tax returns, and references. MillionaireMatch.com's goal is to ensure that member profiles are accurate.

Author E.L. James got at least one thing right in her steamy Fifty Shades of Grey series about journalism student Anastasia Steele and wealthy businessman Christian Grey – the sex was amazing.
Recent studies by The Spanish National Sexual Health survey and by Prince and Associates, assisted by financial consultant Hannah Grove, both reveal that having more money in the bank means having more fun in bed. The newest financial information shows that there are over 32 million millionaires world-wide, meaning a lot of people are having a lot of great sex.
Like us on Facebook
The studies show that this is especially true for women who have obtained their own wealth, like those who are certified millionaires on MillionaireMatch.com. According to the study, women with more wealth are not afraid to ask for what they want, and are accustomed to getting it. Wealthier women have higher self-esteem, and feel more empowered to speak up and do what is in their own best interest. The result is that they more confident and empowered, which increases their confidence in the bedroom as well.
“Women find wealth to be extremely empowering. They have let their confidence and sense of purpose in other areas feed their sex life. They are getting what they want,” explains wealth consultant and study advisor Hannah Grove.
Additionally, sexual activity is not solely the result of a physical stimulus, but requires a certain relaxed mental state as well. Researchers believe that financial stresses and other daily concerns restrict the enjoyment of sex. Millionaires are immune from many of the financial worries that may plague those with less disposable income, such as credit card balances or housing costs, allowing them the freedom to relax and enjoy sexual activity more. Additionally, income allows for more control over reproduction, specifically concerning the availability of contraception. With less concern about the possibility of an unplanned pregnancy, both partners can enjoy sex more.
“I see in my practice that financial stress can have huge impacts on the libido and can cause general dissatisfaction,” New York sex therapist Ian Kerner says. “When you strip away those elements of financial hardship and stress, that can make for better sex.”
More disposable income leads to more travel as well, which translates into more exotic experiences and adventure in life, and in bed. Individuals with more income spend time at the best restaurants, the hippest clubs, and the poshest hotels. They fly private jets to exotic destinations like Ibiza, St. Tropez, Dubai, and Bora Bora. The stimuli from traveling increases openness to new experiences in all aspects of their lives. Millionaires actively seek out exotic, sensory experiences, and this results in more exotic, sensory sex lives.
“I am fortunate enough to have the opportunity to travel and really enjoy the world around me. I really want to experience everything that this life has to offer. You can look at the Member Galleries on the website, and you can see that the people you are connecting with have experienced amazing places and things,” says Megan, a 36-year-old marketing executive and certified member. “I know the people I meet here will share the same exotic tastes I have, whether it’s a weekend in Dubai, or a little fun on the flight there. I know that they will excited to experience exciting new things.”
The studies back this statement up. In total, the two separate studies interviewed almost 1600 individuals, and both produced very similar results. In the Prince and Associates study, which surveyed over 600 men and women with net-worths of over thirty million dollars, 72% of women surveyed stated they were members of the mile-high club, and 88% of the women believed that they had better, higher quality sex after accumulating wealth. Likewise, over 60% of the men surveyed reported that they were very satisfied with their sex lives, reporting more frequent sex, and with more partners.

LOS ANGELES, June 27, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Cars play a vital role in peoples' lives. While this truism applies to our members at MillionaireMatch.com, there is a crucial difference--our members don't just like cars, they love luxury cars.
Cars and wealth have and will continue to be entwined. Luxury cars are not simply status statements; they are, in fact, truly far superior in form and function than their more affordable cousins.
Wikipedia defines "luxury" as "pleasant and desirable creatures beyond strict necessity".
Forbes magazine similarly defines the term by stating that, "luxury is about pleasing the senses'.
Luxury cars therefore bridge the gap between a 'want' and a 'need'. They are a seductive and sexy blend of form and function, of tangible and intangible superior attributes.
In order to find out which luxury cars our members are driving we did a survey to find out our millionaires' favorite top 10 luxury car brands. Below are 11,561 of MillionaireMatch.com member's favorite luxury brand cars.
Number of members voted in favor: 2911 (25.18%)
Their tag line is the reason why they're number one: "The best or nothing". And we're talking years of vehicular innovation. That has to count for something.
Number of members voted in favor: 2489 (21.53%)
This selection is all about bonding. "When you are driving a BMW you are driving more than a car. You are driving the optimum driving pleasure, one that bonds you to both the road and your car unlike any other."
Number of members voted in favor: 1463 (12.65%)
Ok, they're not European. However they deliver what they promise: "design, relentless innovation and uninhibited performance… exceptional customer experiences."
Number of members voted in favor: 976 (8.44%)
Speed and safety first. "When it first appeared in 1980, the Audi quattro® all-wheel drive system stunned the motoring world, dominating international motorsport and raising passenger car handling and safety to unimaginable new levels."
Number of members voted in favor: 765 (6.62%)
Why GMC? Because they SMASH the SUV sector. Seriously.
Number of members voted in favor: 702 (6.07%)
Gone are the days of the mammoth tail-finned Cadillacs. Enter the new techno-goliath in the car war. 'Dare to drive the world forward.'
Number of members voted in favor: 695 (6.01%)
Their home page says it all – nothing. They show, not tell.
Number of members voted in favor: 621 (5.37%)
What do millionaires do when they want to play in the rough? They bring out the cars which laugh at and roll over rough. "Above and Beyond".
Number of members voted in favor: 477 (4.13%)
Look out Europe and America; with Acura the Asians have definitely entered the building. Where human DNA meets car.
Number of members voted in favor: 462 (4.00%)
British old school is still cool. And that leaping out emblem? Irreplaceable. Forerunner in the meaning of luxury.

Money really doesn't buy love, even for millionaire men backing Republican front-runner Donald Trump who fancy women supporting Hillary Rodham Clinton, according to a new dating survey.
A poll of 1,264 single millionaires conducted by MillionaireMatch.com found that nearly all Trump men would sleep with the enemy, but not the Hillary supporters.
"When it comes to having sex, 82 percent of male Trump supporters were willing to sleep with female Democrats. But only 26 percent of female Democrats were willing to sleep with male Republican voters, and only 12 percent with Trump supporters," said the survey analysis.
And there's dating disunity even in the GOP. The survey found that only 17 percent of female Trump voters would date a supporter of Sen. Ted Cruz, who dropped out of the race last week.

Rich men want to show off the size of their ... yachts. But women instead want to see the size of their ... houses.
A match site for the wealthy, MillionaireMatch.com, allows members to brag about what makes them special and to post pictures, but the men may be posting pictures about the wrong things.
Members on MillionaireMatch.com are encouraged to show off their luxury items. The site is designed to match successful people with each other. The bottom line is that millionaire men brag about the wrong things when they’re trying to attract female attention, says Darren Shuster, spokesman for the site.
“Perhaps you want to know which members enjoy collecting exotic autos. Or which members enjoy buying art or real estate, or who has purebred dogs. But seeing is believing, so members can upload their pictures,” he says.
The site provides a number of categories from art and autos to leisure and real estate.
But what are the men bragging about and what are women looking for?
Millionaire men tend to show off their toys and collections, with 70 percent showing pictures of their cars or yachts or a collection of some sort.
Women, on the other hand, more often search for real estate, home decor and art and cultural items.
It is clear women want to know about men’s home life and surroundings rather than their boats, electronics, planes and cars.
According to Shuster, one member says, “I love being able to show my life’s accomplishments: pictures of my hot air balloon, my new movie theater room and my family’s luxury accommodations in Rome.”
Shuster says it’s a matter of digital peacocking. “Our members feel like they deserve to share their luxury and success with others who appreciate the finer things in life.”
Data on what men are looking for when they search for a millionaire was not collected, he says.

The Short Version: MillionaireMatch.com was created in 2001 with the mission to help wealthy singles find that special someone who can relate to and welcome their busy, luxurious lifestyles. Fifteen years and more than 2.7 million users later, MillionaireMatch has become a go-to dating site for successful, high-profile singles — thanks to a multi-talented team that’s committed to its members.
Successful, high-profile singles often have specific dating standards. They’re looking for someone who’s accepting of their busy schedules, enjoys a luxurious lifestyle, and, most importantly, likes them for them — not their money or fame.
MillionaireMatch.com is the first and largest dating site for wealthy singles.
These men and women could try having their friends or family set them up or sign up for a mainstream dating site, but it can be hard for those avenues to meet their particular needs. The avenue that can do that is MillionaireMatch.com.
Founded in 2001, MillionaireMatch (also known as MM) is the original dating site dedicated to wealthy singles, serving an exclusive, elite clientele that includes CEOs, doctors, super models, and even celebrities. And with 2.7 million+ users, it’s also the largest dating site of its kind.
The site is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, so we reached out to John Martinuk, Customer Support Manager, to learn more about MM’s secret sauce for success.
Putting Members First With a Responsive Customer Service Team
Because this could be someone’s first time venturing into online dating, MillionaireMatch puts members’ comfort and satisfaction above anything else, and that’s something we really admire about them. From the layout to the team’s responsiveness, convenience is always taken into consideration.
The interface is clean and free of flashy distractions, which means it only takes a few minutes to get going on MM. Plus customer support reps, like John, offer 24-hour support via phone and email, helping members every step of the way — whether it’s signing up, creating a profile, searching through singles, or communicating with a match. There’s also an extensive Help/FAQ page (complete with a search box so members can get specific about their issue) that covers even more topics, such as changing a username and tips for online dating safety.
Screenshot of the MillionaireMatch FAQ page MillionaireMatch prides itself on customer service, offering 24/7 support and an extensive FAQ page.
Convenience is also factored into the membership options. It’s free to join, fill out a profile, and browse members, so singles can fully test out the site before taking the leap. MillionaireMatch doesn’t want to rush or trick people into signing up just so they get a sale — they want members to unequivocally know this is the right site for them.
“That’s where I think we shine is that we’re not pressuring people to pay for memberships or anything like that,” John said.
It’s a simple concept: The more the process is laid out plainly for singles and the more personalized help they receive, the easier it is for them to have success in online dating. And more sites in the dating industry could take a cue from MillionaireMatch on this kind of thinking.
“We just want to provide a helpful service and place online where people can easily come together and know they’re going to meet people who have the same interest and they’re able to share their story,” John said.
A Welcoming Environment for Successful Singles of Varying Degrees
While MillionaireMatch is known as a dating site for, well, millionaires, it’s also open to people who aren’t in the lifestyle but are interested in it and are successful in their own right — whether that’s in their career, hobby, appearance, or anything else.
“The site is specifically for successful singles, but it’s evolved into an elite dating site,” John said. “We also have people who aren’t as successful as some who are still joining because they want to meet somebody who’s successful or learn from somebody who’s successful or get a feel for what that life is like.”
I wish I knew about this site a long time ago. MM is the epitome of what a dating site should be, to link people who honestly want to find someone in their life. — Bella, Windsor Canada.
MillionaireMatch has also made a name for itself as a social networking hub for members — bringing together a variety of people from a variety of backgrounds through its active forum for swapping stories and Member Luxury section for sharing photos of favorite personal items.
MM’s Journey to the 15-Year Milestone
MillionaireMatch got its start in 2001 during the initial stages of online dating. One of the first daughter sites of SuccessfulMatch.com, MM was created to address an under-served corner of the market. Throughout the years, the site has consistently seen upticks, even during times of financial stress like the Great Recession.
“People are always going to be searching for a partner or looking for love regardless of what’s going on around them,” John explained.
Screenshot of MillionaireMatch.com homepage Because of its hardworking team and care for its members, MillionaireMatch has had 15 successful years.
One of the main reasons the site has been able to avoid downfalls is because of the passionate and dedicated people behind it. Besides sharing in the workload, they also learn to be Jack and Jills of all trades — no matter if it’s customer support, public relations, or affiliate marketing. A great example of this is John, who joined the team in 2005 as a customer service representative and is now one of the leaders of the company.
John also attributes the site’s 15 years of success to not just listening to their members but also to their staff.
“We have an open-door policy when it comes to making suggestions about what can we improve, what needs to be changed, how we deal with this or that. No idea is ever shot down. We’ll always investigate it and see what it would take to implement it,” he said. “We’re happy that we’re still around, and I feel it’s due to what we’re offering.”
In terms of MillionaireMatch’s future, John said they’ll continue to keep a finger on the pulse of what users want and transition the brand to one for elite singles — never shying away from new trends in the ever-evolving world of online dating...

Members of MillionaireMatch.com are capable of garnering the same type of attention as Donald Trump.
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - March 16, 2016 - The biggest question - and the opinion - on the lips of members of the MillionaireMatch.com website is whether billionaire Donald Trump can really pull off the biggest surprise of the century - and claim the US presidency. Trump's larger than life approach to the Republican primaries has certainly caught the nation, the media and the international theater off guard. And despite off-the-cuff comments, dodgy strategies and doubts over his staying power, the man simply rolls on, while his campaign continues to gather traction across the nation and a potential showdown with Democrat Hilary Clinton for the keys to the White House.
The businessman's publicity has engendered, invigorated and polarized opinion among many - including members of the MillionaireMatch.com blog - the largest and original millionaire dating site since 2001. The site, which has attracted more than 2.5 million users for rich and beautiful singles, has been debating whether Trump will be able to do the unthinkable and win. One member on the MillionaireMatch.com blog commented: "Trump is a great salesman and he knows how to sell a used condom and making it look new. Trump talks out of both sides of his mouth."
Another added: "I can't even wrap my head around the notion of Trump as President, but I have the feeling that he won't start a war he can't win."
A third countered: "Honestly I like the fact that he has balls to speak his mind, although he is all over the board. The only reason he can speak his mind is because politics is not his bread and butter and he has nothing to lose. He will just go back and make few more billions. I would vote for Trump."
One member noted: "I don't see Trump as a smart man. Perhaps he's hiding his intelligence well. Prepare for the worst and hope for the best."
Another added: "I would rather not vote than to vote for Trump or Hillary. In my opinion, he's a loose cannon."
"Man, I am sick to my stomach to vote for Trump... This is going to be one of the toughest decisions for Americans in upcoming elections," added another on the blog.
While another concluded: "If you have to change the course of a river you use dynamite... maybe it's the same for changing the course of the government and while I'm not warm to the idea of Trump for President, he'll sure blow things up in Washington."
Ultimately members of MillionaireMatch.com have voiced their collective opinion that no matter who wins - Republican or Democrat - there is a need for a President who can offer hope, make life better for all, generally improve society and celebrate diversity.

In 2015, gold diggers come in both genders. Spotting one can be tricky, especially if you are blinded by sex, or worse, love.
If you’ve spent years climbing to the top of your profession, achieved financial success and are now are looking to complete the puzzle of your existence by finding true love, this approach in and of itself could set you up and make you vulnerable to gold diggers.
If the above sounds like you, you tend to approach life in a linear pattern: education, financial success, acquiring assets, love and so on. You might even believe that your financial status is the thing that will make you a desirable and lovable partner.
Here are four ways to avoid dating people who are in it for the money:
1. Don’t lead with your wallet or your portfolio of assets.
Don’t discuss your various holdings and how powerful and influential you are in your respective field, and don’t brag about your latest splurge on a first date. It will turn off those who seek more meaningful connections. They’ll write you off as a shallow bragger.
This will also make you attract gold diggers to you like flies to honey. Status-hungry social and financial climbers will continue to pursue a relationship with you to bask in your reflective glow, and they will set their sights on financial gain.
You’ll be viewed as a big fish to reel in and live off of. Instead, lead with your passions, your hobbies and your thoughts on relationships.
In short, share who you are, not what you have.
2. Try to date within your age range.
This tends to be a tough one for older men who feel entitled to young, beautiful mates because of their status, or for those who are still looking to start a family with a fertile young thing. It also presents a challenge nowadays to financially independent divorcees who feel like recapturing their youth by gaining the attention and adoration of young, virile studs.
Unfortunately, many of these scenarios can lead to attracting someone with ulterior motives: someone you have little in common with. This leads to a relationship that can leave you feeling empty and taken advantage of.
So find someone more suited for you. For men, this means someone who you would consider to be from your generation, who shares your frame of reference and your values. For women, this should mean no one more than five years your junior. But preferably look for someone your age or a bit older.
3. Seek potential mates within your own tax bracket.
Love is love. I get that. But particularly in the case of women wanting to find love, a partner who can hold his own financially might make more sense. For men, a woman who has a track record of being able to maintain her own life — independent of being taken care of by a man — is a plus.
In fact, now, there are even dating apps where millionaires can connect with other millionaires, so that money is no longer a question when determining someone’s intentions. The dating app MillionaireMatch offers the opportunity for members to become “certified millionaires” by submitting their identification and financial documents for verification. Two millionaires can then meet and date with peace of mind, and enjoy the good life without anyone feeling used or second-guessing the other’s intentions.
4. Keep romance and business separate (in the beginning).
There’s nothing wrong with helping your partner reach his or her full potential in every area of his or her life. Resources are meant to be shared with those we love, but there’s no need to rush. Watch out for potential mates who hint at wanting you to finance their dreams within the first few months of dating and getting to know one another.
If you are courting someone who seems more interested in the connections you have to offer or your ability to bankroll his or her career aspirations — as opposed to simply enjoying your company — run for the hills. These kinds of arrangements tend to happen organically as the two of you merge your lives together over an extended period of time. But if you feel pressured in a new relationship to pony up the dough or make a phone call that could change the other person’s life, you could get hurt.

For home-based business owners, finding time to date presents a unique challenge. As every home-based business owner knows, running a business is seriously time consuming and working at home can make it pretty challenging to turn off work mode. Plus, the lack of a formal office setting with coworkers instantly reduces the chances of connecting with new potential matches. We’ve created a list of tips to make dating just a bit easier for home-based business owners.
Cast away your preconceived notions about what you want your ideal match to look like, or what you want them to do for a living.
1. Carve out time specifically designated for dating.
It’s too easy to keep yourself “on the clock” 24/7 when you’re running a business out of your home. Designating time to actively look for love is important. Rather than scarfing down a salad in front of your laptop at home, head to your local coffee shop and strike up a conversation with a stranger. Or designate an hour each evening devoted to chatting with interesting matches on your favorite dating app. You can also put those entrepreneurial skills to work for you, organizing others who work solo to join you for regular happy hour meetups once a week. Remember, you’re an expert at taking initiative and turning nothing into something.
2. Keep your family and friends in the loop.
You know how they say, “if you tell people you’re on a diet, you’re more likely to stick with it?” If you tell the important people in your life that you are looking for a relationship, you can guarantee that they’ll be checking in and encouraging you (maybe even a little too much!). They may even know a great catch they can set you up with, so don’t be shy about getting the word out.
3. When it comes to online dating, less is more.
Instead of signing up for every dating website and dating app, pick 1 or 2 that best fit your lifestyle. MillionaireMatch is a dating website and mobile app (available on the App Store and Google Play) tailored to meet the needs and interests of successful career-driven singles seeking genuine relationships. They offer high-end customer support, privacy features and a location-based mobile feature that allows you to view two nearby potential matches at once. MillionaireMatch members are like-minded singles who put time and energy into being the best in their field and who are now looking for love to complete the picture, so there’s a synergy there. And niche dating communities are picking up steam lately as certain lifestyle preferences are already in place for you.
4. Keep an open mind.
Don’t write off dating websites or bars as great places to meet your potential match. Cast away your preconceived notions about what you want your ideal match to look like, or what you want them to do for a living. Instead look for qualities that match your own, like hard working, ambitious, entrepreneurial, adventurous, etc. Generally, self-employed home-based business owners are all of those things and more and you deserve a like-minded person who understands and appreciates those qualities in you.
5. Once you’ve found someone great, don’t let your busy work life interfere.
Congratulations! You’ve found someone who you really click with. Now, continue to make them and your relationship a priority in your life by scheduling date nights and phone calls that are free from all work distractions! For home-based business owners this part can actually be the most challenging because up until now, your head has always been in the game, so to speak. Now, the name of the game is balance. And connecting with someone special is an important part of life. They might even serve as your muse and further inspire your creativity and drive to succeed.

To build a successful application today, one must be quintessentially involved with the social media. Two of the essential founding stones of the successful niche apps are Facebook and Twitter. Hence, if a person needs any proof on the trending rates of niche apps in the market today, it’s the marketing strategies of these sharks that one should glance at.
Finding a niche is like finding vacuum according to Phil Ryu (consistently successful app developer). Once the strategies are discovered, a business can actually drive with huge pressure and productive force, the target audience. One such niche app that has been intelligently marketed is MillionaireMatch, which is also the best dating Site for Millionaires to find a one in a millionaire match! Whereas tinder goes for mainstream audience, millionaire match has separated itself by going after the elite and beautiful people.
BETTER RECEPTION WITH TARGET AUDIENCE
Unlike marketing for broader audience, niche marketing has an upper hand in reaching its target audience. When focussed on a narrow set of people who follow a certain set of demographics, there is a higher chance for the app to produce programmes that interests the target audience. Through collecting sufficient data on all trending topics in that niche, it is possible to realise the preferences and likes of that engrosses the target audience, better.
ENHANCED AND STATISTICAL INFERENCES ON AUDIENCE REACHED
Niche apps are currently the best providers of market research equivalently for amateurs and professionals. With specific focus on how many posts are reached to how many audience in a specific time frame, niche apps provide the best statistical analysis of how efficiently can a business target its already interested audience.
As the target-audience quickly engages with respect to niche apps, it also provides the easiest results of how successful or unproductive the current marketing approach of a firm is. With parameters like immediate feedback, number of audience reached and engaged, niche sites have a better chance at continuous and quality improvement.
Niche apps are designed to be specific, different and unique from its competitors. Nevertheless, it should not exclude the audience altogether. However, having specific content narrows down the competition to target the best audience with minimal negative ratings. When there is an option of targeting specific audience with respect to the product, the manager has already narrowed the broader string of competitors in the specific category.
By specifying the unique mission, aim and services of a company, it also readily answers the customer’s question on why should they choose the specific company over its many competitors. An example of an ideal app that has niche topics with respect to its target audience is Bumble- a dating app run by females that helps socializing through collecting the user’s data of location.
QUICK FEEDBACK, THUS, A BETTER BOND WITH THE AUDIENCE
Another important aspect of niche apps is that there are scores of users looking forward to engaging themselves in the virtual reality every moment. Moreover, unlike merely opining or stating one’s missions, a niche app builds an interactive environment specifically to create participants, who later become fans, on their official Facebook or Twitter pages.
In addition, having a niche app helps the marketing managers resolve the clarifications and issues of the customers directly, which creates a trustworthy bond with the customers. A better bond through feedback and resolution of bug is ideal in the case of the niche app Cookpad- an app that assists people to cook with fun!
FAVOURITE KEYWORDS MAKE FAVOURITE APPS
An important aspect of the mantra of online marketing for an app developer is that the favourite keywords connect audience effectively with the service. When the audience is assured that the name of an app is not just any keyword under the favourite topic, but a unique or rare keyword in the topic, the audience begins to credit the service with more respect.
Only the developer’s own favourite vocabulary in the subject can create an enticing keyword that specifically enraptures the target audience. An example of one such music for sleep app with a selective keyword that has succeeded in becoming the favourite is RelaxMelodies.
After all that’s been said and done, there are, in fact, several other reasons why niche apps are the current trend and why they will continuously evolve with their audience – never phasing out. But to enumerate them all would entail a long list that may seem unending, comparable to the possibilities niche apps hold for themselves.
This is why, if one wants to step into the world of niche apps, it is imperative that they do so with a discerning eye and with a mind open to constant change – niche apps were meant to cater to it’s target audience, yes, but they are also meant to grow along with them. Just as technology intended it to be.

What a deliciously unlikely love match. In the glitzy corner is Jerry Hall, 59, the leggy Texan model, former partner of Mick Jagger, famous for saying 'The more flesh you show, the higher up the ladder you go.’ In the gritty old corner is hard-nosed media titan Rupert Murdoch, 84. It’s so juicy, it’s scarcely believable. How did they get together? What on earth do they talk about? Do neither mind the 25-year age gap?
It’s all too easy to envy rich divorcées like Jerry (though, technically, her and Jagger’s 1990 Balinese wedding ceremony was declared unlawful by the High Court). With exceptional good looks, pots of cash, kids who’ve flown the nest and a career of sorts, you’d imagine there must a multitude of highly desirable men, permanently in hot pursuit.
The evergreen supermodel has certainly stepped out with a few, since splitting with her Rolling Stone in 1999 - from 'toyboy’ hedge fund financier, Tim Attias, to property magnate Warwick Hemsley. But after her brief relationship with jet-set scientist Armand Leroi ended, earlier this year, she lamented, “I don’t get propositioned by anybody as much as I used to.”
Now here she is with Rupert Murdoch, a man with private jets galore but only six years shy of 90. Not exactly a conventional dreamboat.
“As a famous person, finding someone who completes your jigsaw can be a tricky business,” says Mairead Molloy, global director of blue-chip dating agency Berkeley International, which charges its UK-only members a jaw-dropping £10,000 a year (throw in Europe and it’s £15,000). “You’re in a bubble - and you can’t go down to the pub without being papped, or snapped in a selfie.”
Molloy, a vicacious blonde of 46, is speaking to me from Cannes, where her agency has a 'key’ office. You can almost hear the Champagne corks popping on the super-yachts and see the oligarchs firing up their Lamborghinis.
Having spent years matchmaking rich, mainly divorced women (most of whom are 34 to 58) with well-off males “in and around a five year age gap”, Molloy believes that if you don’t sign up with a high-end dating agency, and aren’t blessed with a wide circle of friends, single life at the top is sure to be tough. “I wish Jerry would give me a ring,” she says. “I’d help her.”
The truth is, it isn’t as easy as you might think for any wealthy woman emerging from a long marriage to find a new significant other.
A survey of 5,000 millionaire members of the dating site MillionaireMatch.com, last year, found that 70 per cent of their female members said they would never marry again, as opposed to just five per cent of men.
Given many may only be back on the market, in the first place, thanks to a cheating husband, such wariness may be understandable.
Plus, unlike men, said Fran Walfish, a Beverley Hills psychotherapist, “a woman’s ego cannot bear to tolerate a man using her for her money. She needs to know she is loved — rich or poor —flaws and all.”
Gold-digging, certainly, isn’t the preserve of one gender. Take Anna, 49, the ex-wife of a City banker, currently involved with “a kind of gigolo” with a rackety work life and a chequered history of dating rich divorcées.
“My friends warned me about him but I didn’t listen,” she says. Alone, post-divorce in her big empty house, with her two children away at university, she was initially dazzled - not by the riches, but by the attention he lavished on her. However humdrum.
“He likes watching Gogglebox and Downton with me, whereas my ex-husband, who’s more intellectual, used to storm out of the room in a rage. And he’s always giving me advice on what to wear and offering to walk the dog late at night.”
Six months in, however, the relationship is starting to sour. “I feel as if I’m the man in the relationship – he even puts his head on my shoulder – and it’s starting to really irritate me. It’s as if our roles have reversed. And he doesn’t get on with my male friends. It only works when we’re on our own.”
Then there’s Melanie, 54, another wealthy divorcée, who having briefly dated a string of younger suitors in the immediate aftermath of her divorce – “They made me feel that I wasn’t all ropey and leathery and bitter” – is now dating more “age-appropriate men”; only to find that her money intimidates them.
“I dated this lovely guy who was interested in literature and poetry, just like I am, but in the end he couldn’t cope with the fact I owned a pile in the Cotswolds without a mortgage. He found it emasculating to take a woman out who was richer than he was.”
Melanie, an elfin mother-of-four who looks years younger than her age, says the peril of being rich is that it can actually put many men off. “Men often have a pre-conceived idea about wealthy women – they think we’re too demanding – so they don’t ask us out.”
Sometimes, says 'Lady’ Lara Asprey, 32, who runs the dating agency The Sloane Arranger, and has written a book, The Very British Rules of Dating, the men may even be right. “Rich women can, unwittingly, come across as very difficult and high maintenance,” she says.
This, clearly, isn’t Melanie’s problem. Having spent 25 years with a Midas touch spouse, holidaying in yachts in the Caribbean and luxury chalets in Klosters, she’s loving the arty new life she’s creating for herself and the men it throws in her path. “I don’t have to think about security anymore, or school fees, which means I can now cast my net much wider,” she says.
Given she doesn’t need to remarry to remain living in the manner to which she’s become accustomed, what is she looking for?
"I hate the word companion," says Melanie. "It’s so sexless, when really I’d like to find a man I can dive into bed with. There just isn’t a word for what I want. It’s everything I’d look for in a husband, perhaps, but minus the financial security.”
But how do you find a man who isn’t a gold-digger, isn’t intimidated by you, doesn’t send you down a probably doomed cougar path (Sam Taylor-Johnson may be flourishing, but it didn’t work for Demi Moore), and isn’t too much of a financial mismatch?
Mairead Molloy, married to husband no.2, a Frenchman, prides herself on being able to spot the eligible mid-life male. “They’re sharper, crisper, edgier - in sartorial terms, very Savile Row.”
And what hope for this band of super-rich women hoping to catch such a fish in a very bijou dating pool?
“I see two categories of very wealthy women out there,” says one (equally wealthy) divorced man of 56. “There’s the rich divorcée who doesn’t work and is used to a certain way of life – she can be a little spoilt. And then there’s the professional, self-made woman who may be all hard work and no play. In all honesty, neither are an easy prospect.”

So you want to date a fellow millionaire, because regular people just aren’t good enough. How can they understand what it’s like to be born into money, after all? Where can a busy millionaire turn to meet another busy millionaire? Just click over to MillionaireMatch.com, a site that describes itself as: “the world’s largest dating service for single millionaires and attractive people.”
The site has been up since 2001, so you can trust that it really is full of millionaires. They’ve got that business sorted out.
“But wait,” a potential user might wonder, “I believe that this profile is a true millionaire, but how can I know he’s also a genuine d-bag?” MillionaireMatch feels you.
Yesterday, it announced a new feature on the site to help guarantee that one reprehensible human being has found another: Luxury Show. We all know that dating apps have gotten tiresomely superficial. Peoples’ photos are the number one indicator of how likely people are to match or message with someone on all the other sites. Luxury Show creates a photo feature that turns users away from less meaningful indicators like looks and empowers seekers of love to focus on what really matters: possessions.
MillionaireMatch is available as a web, iOS and Android app. Free to join—messaging gets quite expensive, however. Passes to initiate messages start at $69.99 per month, but the company goes the extra mile. It has a “certified millionaire” program, and users can upload scans of their official identification to the site and be verified as real people.

If you’re among the top one-percent and want to date like-minded individuals, or you simply want to mingle with singles in the millionaire club, then you need to swipe right to the Millionaire Match mobile app, available for both iOS and Android.
Unlike popular dating apps on the market like Tinder, Millionaire Match actually began as an online dating website 15 years ago, with the goal of helping the super-rich and influential find love. With over 2.4 million active members around the world, this exclusive service seems to have tapped into the market of this exclusive club’s dating needs. This Millionaire Match app is just the latest tool the company has developed to help its selective members date more efficiently.
Catering to people with high net worth who are usually short on time, value privacy and convenience, and are wary of imposters, the company actually requires new members to disclose their income. In fact, high-earning members can submit their financial documents to earn the distinction of being a ‘Certified Millionaire’ to give themselves an extra edge in the dating pool. There is even a place for them to upload photos of their favorite things to impress potential suitors.
To take advantage of the fact its members are always on the move, the app’s ‘Let’s Meet’ feature makes use of their mobile device’s GPS to find other members nearby. Users will see two profiles at a time to help them decide who they’d like to meet. When they find someone they’re interested in, they have to mark that profile as ‘like'; if both parties ‘like’ each other, then they’ll be able to chat together through the app. If all goes well, perhaps they will jet off to Italy for some gelato or whatever else one-percenters do on a first date.
Although it is free to download the app and create a profile to meet current members, only Gold members who pay a monthly fee (as much as $70 a month) enjoy features like the ability to initiate conversations with the people they like, or search exclusively for other ‘Certified Millionaires’ in the community. For the truly wealthy, this is a small price to pay to ensure exclusivity, but for the rest of us, that’s quite a steep monthly cover charge to access this exclusive club.
Is it possible for the equally well-heeled to find true love through Millionaire Match, a service that is so focused on money and net worth? If you’ve ever tried this app or service, please dish on your experience!

Millionaire Match, available for iPhone through the Apple iTunes App Store, is a unique and interesting dating app that is definitely aimed at a niche market, yet offers that market a substantial and worthwhile proposition.
The app, from developer Successful Match, is aimed at matching rich and successful people with one another. Now, the problem with services like this has always been the fear of someone just pretending to be something they are not, so in this case someone could potentially pretend to be rich, but the developer has wisely priced the app out of the reach of opportunist people, which not only keeps the integrity of the app intact, but also protects its users from fraudsters.
The subscription plans start from $69.99 per month, which will deter many fraudsters from even attempting to use the app. The app is still free to download and browse singles, and you can register using your Facebook details, which is a time saver.
The app has over 2,000,000 users, all of which are successful and attractive singles, and you can search and browse at will. The search function deserves special mention as it is one of the app’s strongest points, allowing you to use the Certified Millionaire option to get your perfect search results.
Here, straight from the developer, are the app’s best features:
– Discover real rich / attractive singles near you
– Connect with Certified Millionaire
– Chat with wealthy singles online
– Get dating advice from Counselor
– Get instant help
Members you find that you take a fancy to can be saved as favourites, and messaged straight away as the app comes with unlimited messaging for gold members. Chatting with other users is easy and intuitive, with everything about the app having a natural flow. This is a premium app, but it is professionally built and well designed.
Perhaps the best thing about the nature of the app is that the developer can give help and advice very quickly, with users enjoying support that is far better than almost any other app out there. If you have a problem, they are there to help you fix it.
Overall, this is a superb dating app, and one that enjoys and fulfils the niche it has been given. With premium pricing to keep things exclusive and all the tools you need, if you are looking for like-minded rich and successful people, then you can’t go wrong with an app that is also really well designed.

Finding wealth in addition to love is a better bet – statistically – than simply landing a financial jackpot. And this way, you get both money and love. Indeed, the odds of dating a millionaire in the United States are surprisingly high, especially when compared to the astronomical odds of winning the lottery.
Look no further than the dating site Millionaire Match to see just how many wealthy people exist that are a finger-click away. Supposedly over 2 million single millionaires on that site are looking for love from other rich people!
It might not be the easiest thing to do, but the percentages are there: people are way more likely to locate, attract and date a millionaire than to win the lottery.
13. Being Struck by Lightning – Odds: 1 in 10,000
You’ve been… Thunderstruck! If that’s not the case, well, it’s hard to break it to you, but chances are greater of you being struck by lightning than winning that darn lottery.
The National Weather Service has done the research, stating that over an 80-year lifetime, the odds of getting hit by lightning are 1 in 10,000. The Harvard School of Public Health expanded on the research, claiming that actually dying from being struck by lightning is about 1 in 3 million.
Word to the wise: be careful when buying a lottery ticket during a storm! The odds are not on your side.
12. Finding a Four-Leaf Clover – Odds: 1 in 10,000
Next on the list is a lucky charm. Whether as a kid or an adult, a person hasn’t achieved one of life’s requirements unless they’ve spent a significant amount of time in a field or grassy spot looking for a four-leaf clover among the thousands of boring three-leafed ones.
According to Irish tradition, each leaf of the rare clover represents luck, faith, hope and love. A person is 176,000 times more likely to find the famed four-leaf clover than to win the lottery – so much for the luck of the Irish.
At the end of the day, something that is perceived as so incredibly lucky is actually quite common when compared to other odds.

I’m sure everyone who’s ventured into the sometimes-shady and sometimes-exciting and sometimes-fruitful dating-land, have heard of millionairematch.com, an exclusive dating website dedicated to cater to the one percent. The website has been around for close to 14 years now, and because of its reputation for offering a good and satisfying experience, MillionaireMatch.com now boasts more than 2.3 million users.
Now, this exclusive dating website has launched a new version of the dating app, called MillionaireMatch Pro, an iOS app. ‘When you are part of the one percent, it can be hard to find romance with someone who really understands you,’ says the press release for the new dating app. Right. Poor little rich people can’t find anyone to date who understands them and appreciates them for who they are.
Members who wish to sign up for the dating app have to specify their annual income, because, you know, they have a strict ‘no riff raff policy.’ By the way, riffraff is one word, not two. The site as well as the app boasts of a very exclusive and elite clientele of rich and attractive men and women – from high powered CEOS to pro athletes to Hollywood celebrities and doctors, lawyers, super models, entrepreneurs, investment bankers, and what not, who are all seeking a serious, long-term relationship.
The elite, luxury dating site encourages users to show off their wealth – albeit in a subtle manner – sort of. Millionaire members can upload pictures of their luxury vehicles, art they own, boats and yachts, hi tech gadgets, gourmet food and spirits, expensive and exclusive jewelry, and real estate. Doesn’t this remind you of another dating app for the ‘rich and the attractive’? Yep, that’s right. LUXY, a dating app, which allows its members to weed out the poor and the unattractive from its community.
Then what’s the difference between the two?
Apparently, the difference is in their approach and credibility. Since MillionaireMatch has been around longer than LUXY, it’s got a slight edge over the latter, in terms of drawing members.
Although signing up for MillionaireMatch Pro is free and easy enough, if you want to get in touch with any of the other members, you need to cough up a significant amount of money towards subscription fees. And since it’s for millionaires, they would hardly mind shelling out a pittance in comparison to their millions in the bank!
Sammy Wan, the marketing representative for MillionaireMatch Pro said,
“We’ve been providing wealthy singles in search of romance with a safe and fun online destination since the infancy of the online dating industry. This new version of our iOS app is something our members really appreciate. Successful people lead very busy lives and their time is extremely valuable. This new update gives them what they need to meet other successful singles in the most efficient and convenient way possible.”
Well, whatever they used to offer on an online dating website, MillionaireMatch has taken the next step in its evolution by introducing its iOS app, MillionaireMatch Pro.
Happy hunting for your millionaire! 😉

Have you ever wondered if other people consider you riffraff?
I’m not talking about the rapper who goes by that name (actually, he spells it as two words, Riff Raff). What I mean is, do others think you are part of a “group of people regarded as disreputable and worthless … the lowest class?”
The riffraff question came up because of an e-mail I received from the publicist for a dating service. Here’s the pitch: “There’s OkCupid.com for the masses, Farmersdatingsite.com for country folk and Tinder for the hook-up crowd. And, now, there’s an app for the wealthy — MillionaireMatch Pro.”
In fact, the dating business is one of the fastest-growing US industries. Of the 54 million single people here, 41 million have tried online dating. Revenue for the industry was estimated at $2.1 billion in 2014.
But the field is already pretty crowded, with some 3,900 companies running dating sites, according to research firm IBISWorld. That makes it tough for any new player.The MillionaireMatch app is more pricey; it has, after all, a “No Riff Raff Policy.” (The app spells it as two words, as the rapper does, but the policy has nothing to do with him.)“Members have to specify their annual income and we remove dozens of profiles every day of the week,” its publicist wrote.
Several things came to mind before I started “research” for this column. The first was Groucho Marx, who famously said, “I don’t want to belong to any club that will accept me as a member.”
Groucho apparently reveled in his riffraff-ism, as I do on most occasions, especially if it gets me out of wearing a suit. Would I want to be a member of MillionaireMatch.com even if it would let me in?
And then there was a comment I once heard a standup comic make: “I recently joined a charitable organization. It’s called Match.com. The goal is to feed hungry women.”Ouch! Imagine what an easy mark I’d become if those hungry women thought I was rich. They’d probably order surf and turf — and an extra entrée to go.
But the lure was intense when I read more of the press release: “The luxury dating site encourages members to upload photos of their luxuries: arts and culture, autos, aviation, boats, electronics, food and spirits, home decor, jewelry, leisure and real estate.”
And then there were the endorsements from people who are said to use the site. “There’s nothing like driving up the Pacific Coast Highway in my Ferrari en route to wine country for a long weekend of relaxation,” said one guy, who I hope wasn’t texting that message while steering that fine machine.
And another: “I have a summer home in Cape Cod and it’s so much sweeter when I have someone to share it with me. Check it out.”
Hell, I have a house near the Jersey Shore. It happens to be the only house I own but it’s a nice house. And I have a car.
Art? I did buy a couple of prints from a guy standing outside Madison Square Garden the other day. But they were three for $10 so I don’t think that counts. And I was recently on the PCH, as Californians call that highway. But I was in a discount tour bus, so that probably doesn’t count either.
But if I sold my house and was willing to live in a box for the rest of my life, I guess I would be considered a millionaire. Besides, if the women on MillionaireMatch were rich, I wouldn’t need my house — I’d move in with one of them.
OK, so I decided to join. But my first attempt failed, probably because I used my New York Post e-mail address and asked to be matched with a woman worth $100 million or more.I know, that was ambitious. So I brought down my expectations. Next, I applied under my personal e-mail address and asked for women with only $10 million. Enough to keep us comfortable, but — you, know — not greedy.
First mistake: MillionaireMatch apparently doesn’t think it is funny if you post a picture of yourself as a 5-year-old. And where it asked for videos, it probably wasn’t a good idea to write: “I have adorable videos of me as a kid. I’ll bring them along on our first date.”
So I posted a real picture of what I look like today. My profile, under the heading “I’m sick and tired of meeting riffraff,” got through.
And even if I have to say so myself, my pitch was probably as honest as anyone on MillionaireMatch has ever read: “First things first, what are your assets?” I wrote.There were also height requirements. I’m 5-foot-9 ¹/₂ if the wind is blowing straight up.
“Anyone who is my height or taller will need to scrunch down whenever we are together. If she agrees to that, taller is OK too. (My darling’s answer to ‘what are your assets?’ might change my feelings about height.)”
You are probably wondering how I did. Twenty women and one guy have checked out my profile so far. Three winked at me, the online equivalent of saying, “Hey, sailor!” Another requested a photo. (It’s already there.)
I couldn’t learn very much about my would-be MillionaireMatches because — like all of these sites — it requires you to give your credit card before it allows access to that info level. And because its targeted clientele is rich, MillionaireMatch is more expensive than most. So I didn’t carry the gag that far.
I figure Groucho wouldn’t pay. So neither would I.
The world may be collapsing around you, but it’s not so bad if you have somebody by your side.”

The world may be collapsing around you, but it’s not so bad if you have somebody by your side.”

It’s spring, and a millionaire’s fancy turns to love. There’s a website for that. Or, perhaps, a millionaire is not so much looking for love as much as someone to spoil (and who would very much like to be spoiled by a millionaire). There’s a site for that, too.
Dating sites such as MillionaireMatch.com and Sugardaddie.com offer its certified wealthy members the opportunity to connect online with like-minded singles. In that they are no different from anyone else looking for love online. But the most popular Millionaire dating sites offer premium amenities commiserate with their members’ financial status (There are filters and verification standards in place to guard against people falsifying their financial status).
“They tend to look for people usually on an equal financial footing,” John Martinuk, manager of customer relations for Successful Match told Millionaire Corner in a phone interview. “It makes the process a lot easier for them. Generally speaking, they want to be around somebody who is not only financially stable but successful in what they are doing.”
MillionaireMatch is one of 37 niche dating sites SuccessfulMatch administers. It is the top-rated millionaire dating site, according to such resources as top10millionaire datingsites.com and millionairedatingwebsites.org. The site recently marked its 15th anniversary. It counts among its more than two million users CEOs, pro athletes, doctors, lawyers, investors, entrepreneurs, beauty queens, fitness models and Hollywood celebrities (confidentially is key for such websites, but, according to a Forbes story about the website, another member outed Charlie Sheen as a member for a brief time).
What sets MillionaireMatch apart from other millionaire dating sites is “how we treat our customers,” Martinuk said. “The site offers 24-hour phone service and, beyond love connections, fosters a community through blogs and forums on the site. “It’s also about making friends,” he said. “People stick around not just because they are looking to meet someone, but because of friendships they’ve made and having that avenue to discuss things with other like-minded people.”
On the mobile front, the site released this week its updated iOS mobile app "MillionaireMatch Pro"
MillionaireMatch.com offers two membership options, Standard (free) and Gold ($70 per month), which offers a more advanced and proactive process.
Love, of course is a many splendored thing, but, as Tina Turner once asked, “What’s love got to do with it?” “I wouldn’t suggest the site doesn’t have those looking for a person who will financially rescue them,” Martinuk said. “We’ll take those profiles down right away. We have another site for that.”
That site is Sugardaddie.com, created for those who are looking for” a financially mutually beneficial relationship,” Martinuk said. The Primary participants are women looking to “elevate their status” or to have someone help them with whatever financial issues they are having.
The stereotype is that millionaires who enter into such a relationship are “creepy old men” or who are using their wealth and influence to get whatever they want without valuing the woman as a person. “Nothing could be further from the truth,” Martinuk insisted. “They may not be looking at this time to settle down. They just want someone to spend time with and spoil.”
The economic collapse and subsequent recession did not cool the ardor of MillionaireMatch.com members. “The economy can tank, but people are still willing to search online to find somebody,” Martinuk said. “The world may be collapsing around you, but it’s not so bad if you have somebody by your side.”

The world of matchmakers to the ultra-wealthy has its own set of rules dos and don’ts, discovers Mithila Mehta
So you’re young, successful, seriously rich and still single! Well, worry not! A millionaire matchmaker is at your service! From owners of massive corporations and celebrities to prominent politicians and business moguls, millionaires from all walks of life subscribe to millionaire matchmaking services, to find a partner.
So what does it take to be a millionaire matchmaker? “For starters, we need to think and feel like a millionaire. How else will we ever understand our client?” laughs Linda Gordon, who is an exclusive matchmaker for the big shots of Wall Street, in New York city. In India, Saurabh Goswami set up Ultra Rich Weddings Pvt. Ltd. in 2011 after noticing a substantial gap in the Indian market. “I was motivated by the fact that our target audience is increasing at a fast pace, given the growth of high-net-worth individuals,” he says.
Given the number of gold diggers and frauds, it is critical to thoroughly verify that potential candidates are indeed millionaires. This helps build the credibility of the matchmaking agency. Explains diamond merchant Rupesh Shah, who found his life partner through an elite matrimonial service company, “The screening process was stringent. I was asked to submit details of my income tax returns and property shares to verify my millionaire status. A representative from the matchmaking agency came home to verify my lifestyle as part of the screening process.”
Adds Linda, “Most millionaires seek partners who have families with a long history of wealth. Nouveau riche individuals and families are less preferred. Hence, we ask for tax documents going far into the past!”
A different ball game
Matchmaking for millionaires is a different ball game. “The needs of millionaires are confidential. We understand successful people are always busy so it becomes necessary to match them with members who meet their needs. To ensure the members are satisfied, we offer 24/7 customer service support,” says Sammy Wan, marketing manager of MillionaireMatch, the original and largest millionaire dating site in the world.
Lily Bloomington, founder of the London-based Velvet Vows, says, “The millionaire club is a very tight circle globally. Everyone knows each other! We have to be very careful to take into account existing dynamics between parties. For example, we cannot show a high-profile client the profile of his millionaire ex-girlfriend. And if two business families are feuding, we cannot introduce their children to each other with a matrimonial view!”
In India, an analysis of the millionaire matchmaking business throws up some interesting facts. “We receive most requests from Tier I and Tier II cities. Females greatly outnumber males (we have five females for every two males) and more often than not, the girls are better qualified than the guys!

MillionaireMatch.com encourages women to put “makeup-free” badges on their profiles.
For this dating website, it’s not enough to be rich and beautiful. You have to be rich and beautiful — while wearing absolutely no makeup.
Dating website MillionaireMatch.com — which aims to pair male/female millionaires with other male/female millionaires or at least people who would like to become millionaires — has launched “true selfies” that encourage women to put “makeup-free” badges on their profiles. “People want to see what’s behind the curtain,” says Darren Shuster, a spokesman for MillionaireMatch.com who has worked with other sites such as SeekingArrangement.com and SugarDaddie.com — two sites that specialize in matching wealthy older men and younger women.
This isn’t the first dating site to introduce this kind of feature: BeautifulPeople.com, a U.K.-based website, already allows members to vote to allow (or reject) potential members; Greg Hodge, CEO and co-founder of the site, recently said that more than 1,000 people have even signed up to be guided by 40 “mentors.” The dating site Zoosk also has a “Photo Verified” badge that lets other members know your photos look like you after Zoosk moderators compare them with a short “selfie” video. But those features are for both men and women.
“In 2015, celebrities are showing no makeup selfies all the time for empowerment,” Shuster says. The following, he says, are quotes from the site’s forum with men complaining about their dates: “I’m tired of spending my time getting to know somebody online if they’re going to look completely different when I wake up with her in the morning.” And not all female members on the site appear to be happy about it: “I wear makeup all day long, from morning until bedtime, why do I have to show a face that nobody ever sees.”
Read: Does online dating lead to happier marriages?
However, Shuster doesn’t have any verification for age or whether men are heavier, shorter or older than their photos suggest, or are using Photoshop or filters on their photos. “Is it only sexist if we talk about women’s beauty verification?” Shuster says. “Sexist is favoring one gender over the other. In this case both parties are being verified in how much they make and men don’t wear makeup.” Shuster says he will explore implementing badges to verify the accuracy of men’s photos too. “We are open to verifying both.”
Not everyone is a millionaire on MillionaireMatch.com. Shuster says the site has two million members globally, but he doesn’t disclose how many are actually millionaires. There is a verification process for finances for both men and women. This includes a review of personal financial statements, tax returns and references. “The goal is to ensure that member profiles are accurate,” Shuster says. “This is a true millionaire club. If dating sites are supposed to be all about love, then why are so many apps about looking at people’s pictures?”
What’s more, women appear to complain the most about their online dates. More than half of online daters of both sexes (54%) say dates have “seriously misrepresented” themselves in their profiles, according to a 2013 study by Pew Research Center’s “Internet & American Life Project.” And 28% of online daters say they’ve been contacted by someone through an online dating site or app in a way that made them feel harassed or uncomfortable. Women (42%) are much more likely than men (17%) to have had a bad experience.

You know all about online dating destinations like Match.com and eHarmony, but then there are the niche options—like GlutenFreeSingles.com—that you hear about from time to time. They beg the question: Does anyone really find lasting love on something like FarmersOnly.com or STDMatch.net, though? Oh, yes. These seven couples are living proof.
As a voiceover artist originally from Reading, Pennsylvania, Amanda Angelis was looking for adventure. So when she found SeaCaptainDate.Com, a site that connects people who work out at sea with people who share a love for the ocean, she decided to try it out. Amanda also really has a thing for guys with beards, so a scruffy tour-boat captain named Van Wagner caught her eye. And although he showed up clean-shaven to their first date, the couple's been together for more than a year.
Five years ago, when Christine Villareal’s boyfriend dumped her because he claimed his family would never accept her tattoos, she went looking for someone who would love every detail about her and her ink. After Googling “tattoo dating site,” she quickly found TattooPassions.com—and Rob Villarreal, who had sleeves on each arm and some eye-catching tats across his chest that might as well have read marriage material. The couple tied the knot in Arizona in February 2013 and now have a six-month-old daughter named Autumn. Naturally, Christine commemorated her birth with a tattoo of her daughter's name and bear cubs.
When Pia Stroebel went online looking for a gluten-free restaurant in November 2013, she accidentally stumbled onto glutenfreesingles.com and wound up finding a completely different kind of dish. Nearly two years after meeting Dale Graff online, Pia packed up her things in Connecticut and moved to live with Dale in Montana.
Julie, 28 who was diagnosed with genital herpes at 18, wanted someone who would accept and understand her situation—and she found that in Peter. When they found each other online in May 2014, Peter had only recently learned he had herpes. “It was always hard on me because I was concerned I would give it to somebody,” says Julie. Now, it's turned into a way to connect with someone.
Elizabeth and Artie Thompson connected on this niche dating site and quickly bonded about their love for agriculture and country living. (Elizabeth was raised on a dairy farm in Alabama, while Artie grew up on a corn and soybean farm in Ohio.) After finding one another in 2012, the two eloped last July. The two currently live outside of Boulder, Colorado, but are planning to move back to Elizabeth’s home state to grow soybeans and corn.
Former charter flight attendant Dawn Van Gaalen was frustrated by the men she tried dating—so a friend suggested she check out MillionaireMatch.com "I didn't go on for money," she says. "I just wanted to be with someone more secure, mature, and established." She found all of the above in Darrell Nelson, an oil and gas product manufacturer and distributor. A year and a half later, Dawn and Darrell are still going strong and now share a palatial home in Canada.
Kim Eaton was looking for organized motorcycle rides when she noticed an ad for bikerkiss.com. That led her to John, her now-husband. “After our first date, we both walked away knowing we’d get married," she says. They took their first motorcycle ride together on New Year’s Day 2013—it was through New Jersey—although the couple no longer rides (John’s been in two life-threatening accidents since the couple tied the knot). “If he never rides again, I don’t know if I will ride again," says Kim. "Motorcycles aren’t the love of my life—he is.”

While people who are in love can put up with a lot, overlooking some things and simply gritting their teeth and bearing others, one thing that’s guaranteed to kill almost any relationship is if one partner finds out that the other has been lying to them about something important, particularly if it’s been a fairly open lie and other people are aware of it while they have been kept in the dark. This often occurs in relationships where men lie to their wives about everything from secret mistresses to hidden stashes of money. I got some tips from the wealthy men and wealthy women dating site MillionaireMatch.com in the section of “About Breakup or Ex” Here are some examples of staggering lies that have ruined relationships:
1. Secretly Married
One woman talked about the fact that her “single” partner was in reality a married father of three. A fact she discovered after some internet searching. She was lucky because she tackled the problem and satisfied her suspicions on her own before she got too deeply involved.
When woman have a boyfriend who was fired from his job earlier for stealing. He never said a word, nor attempted to explain why he’d done what he had. He just left home and pretended to go to work every day like he had in the past. She was alerted to the situation when their roommate attempted to use her printer and it was jammed. Upon pulling the paper causing the problem free she then told her friend. When confronted the boyfriend confessed the truth. Fact was he hadn’t been working for weeks.
Wealthy men or not, this one is a sure relationship destroyer. A woman found out her boyfriend was cheating on her while studying abroad. She already suspected, but seeing a picture of her boyfriend and his secret lover together on Facebook confirmed it. Once confronted, he told her he wanted to remain friends with the other woman, but would end the affair. She wisely said “no deal.”
Yet another woman found out her husband had been lying about their personal finances. He hadn’t in fact paid the mortgage every month as he claimed, nor did he pay the utility bills. Her first clue was when their house was foreclosed on. Then the utilities were being turned off regularly, and collection agencies began coming to the house. She learned that her husband had a gambling problem, and lied about the debts he owed.
5. Lied about Age
One woman had a boyfriend who lied about his for an incredible three years. He claimed to be twenty five to her seventeen, then turned out to actually be over thirty. Although she was loath to leave him for a long time because of how badly he had manipulated her, she finally realized she could not trust him and did so.
6. Lied about Living At Home
There was a woman who had long-distance relationship with her ex-boyfriend. He never confessed that while she believed him to be an independent and self-reliant person, he was in fact, still living with his sister and mother. That alone wouldn’t have finished the relationship. It was the huge lie behind it which didn’t come to light until she was holding plane tickets to fly out and see him, after nine months of never guessing the truth.
7. Lied about Who He Really Was
This particular woman didn’t leave her ex because of one lie. This guy really had a con going. He didn’t lie about his legal identity, but rather his personality and who he was morally, etc. He portrayed himself as a liberal, pretty easy going fellow when in fact the opposite was true. This woman was unfortunate enough to have really fallen in love before realizing the truth.
8. He Pretended Not to Know His Other Lover
This cad had a girlfriend on the side with whom he engaged in sex right in the car of the woman he was living with. Then when they met up in the supermarket, he had the nerve to deny having ever met the woman.
9. Lied That He Was Norwegian
In a lie to top all lies everywhere, this fellow passed himself off as Norwegian, saying he was born and raised there until the age of fourteen. He spoke Norwegian like a true Norwegian would, had Norwegian friends who were also fooled by his lie, and even claimed to have served in that country’s army.
10. He Never Told the Truth about Anything
This guy lied about his entire life. Who raised him, his mother, his whole life. It was so bad that his own family wouldn’t have anything to do with him because he was a pathological liar. He told his girlfriend he had cancer and she actually went to the hospital with him for treatment. And so it goes. It all serves to prove that it’s a dangerous world out there and you can’t be careful enough.

Vacations are all about escaping a life for a little bit. But sometimes you find that perfect man or woman that sweep you off your feet while during the trip. And that special someone turns out to have money bin where they swim like Scrooge McDuck.
We readily admit not everyone is actively going out of their way to find a sugar daddy or momma while on vacation. Yet finding that charmer with loot is a nice little benefit to any trip. So where do you find them? We’ve asked our friends at MillionaireMatch.com to scour their database to find the cities where you’ll find that special – and legitimately affluent – love of your life.
1. New York City, New York
Well, of course the greatest city in the world would be a great place to find your loaded love. Millionaire Match shows that 3.5 percent of its users call the Big Apple their home, and who could blame them. You can find everything you want to do in New York City, whether it’s great Broadway shows or Michelin-rated restaurants. And if you want to escape from the speed of city life, you just need to rent a car (or maybe be driven by “the help”) to the Hamptons.
2. Los Angeles, California
There’s only one place for many people dreaming of fame and fortune in TV and film, Los Angeles. The City of Angels has the posh lifestyle for the elite that run the town, some of which (3.3 percent) are looking for love. For those that just want to gawk at the movers and shakers, we recommend a top-flight restaurant like Providence to see if you can get noticed.
3. Dallas, Texas
The land of J.R. Ewing finds its way onto the list. MillionaireMatch.com points out that 2.1 percent of its membership (real millionaire, by the way) call the “Big D” home. Dallas (and the nearby Metroplex with Fort Worth) is the headquarters to 20 companies in the Fortune 500. That means you don’t have to head out to Southfork Ranch to get a taste of the good life. Instead, just go shop ‘til you drop at the Galleria.
4. Houston, Texas
Another city from the Lone Star State? Absolutely. Houston is second only to NYC when it comes to being the home of Fortune 500 companies with 24. Locals and visitors alike love the diversity of the area’s culture, great restaurants and plenty of sporting events to keep you busy. It also doesn’t hurt that the state has no income tax and a low cost of living.
5. Las Vegas, Nevada
Fortunes are won and lost faster than wardrobe changes for Celine Dion in Sin City. For those that cash in big, Las Vegas is a limitless playground, and Millionaire Match states 1.65 percent of its verified database live in the area. There’s world-class entertainment, high-stakes gambling, amazing hotels, and restaurants created by some of the greatest chefs around. Of course, you could just go on a heater at the craps table to make your own small fortune instead of finding that special someone.
6. London, England
Feel like heading across the pond to find the person of your dreams? London is home to 1.463 percent of Millionaire Match’s clientele. England’s capital city has everything you could want to do when money is no object. But the real treasure of the well-off are the villages just outside of the city, like Ascot and Marlow. Definitely worth a visit for the peaceful surroundings.
7. Scottsdale, Arizona
This one might seem out of place, but the fact is Scottsdale is just a half-hour drive from Phoenix. And Phoenix is where you’ll find major offices for companies like Wal-Mart, Bank of America, and American Express – many of which (1.463 percent) employ single folks with seven-figure incomes. So enjoy the energetic nightlife and natural beauty of the surrounding areas, and maybe you’ll find that perfect person.
8. Chicago, Illinois
We couldn’t leave out the Windy City from this list, could we? Chicago is home to 1.39 percent of Millionaire Match’s members. Makes sense in a town that’s big in finance, science, and engineering work. It also doesn’t hurt that the Second City is flush with high-end shopping, entertainment, and restaurants. While many of the well-off head to the suburbs, you can find a lot of top-shelf options for meeting folks and having fun on the Gold Coast (pictured above), located on the Near North Side.
9. Beverly Hills, California
Los Angeles may be where the wealthy work, but Beverly Hills is where a lot of them do their playing and living. Rodeo Drive and the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel are a couple of things that come to mind about the area. But many just think of the city within a city as the home of the rich and famous. You may run into a celebrity or two that are out and about here, or maybe you could find one of the 1.34 percent of the members of Millionaire Match that happen to live in Beverly Hills.
10. San Francisco, California
With booming tech market of Silicon Valley just an hour drive away, San Francisco has plenty of folks that see money as no object. Head to the Golden Gate Bridge, dine at the best restaurants, or rent a fleet of canoes to catch a home run ball in McCovey Cove – do what you want! It’s what the dudes from Pied Piper would want you to do.

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) December 11, 2014
To mark the passing of Sadie Hawkins day this year, MillionaireMatch.com, the largest and longest lasting dating site for wealthy men and women looking for a serious relationship, asked its members what they thought about the traditions of men making the first move when it comes to dating and how’d they feel about the roles being reversed.
Single male members who responded to the survey were nearly unanimously OK with the reversal of roles. 97% of MillionaireMatch’s male members said that they would be very comfortable with being asked out by a successful woman. Only 3% said that they would even be a little uncomfortable with it.
Meanwhile, women had a markedly different response to the survey. When asked how comfortable they would be, asking out a successful man, only 39% said that they would be very comfortable. 47% stated that they would be at least a little uncomfortable, and 14% were adamant that it is the man’s job to make the first move.
MillionaireMatch.com has been designed to provide a fun, safe atmosphere for successful singles looking to find a long-term relationship, regardless of who makes the first move.
For more information on MillionaireMatch.com and the study, please visit the new MillionaireMatch Luxury Style Blog.
For the last 13 years, MillionaireMatch has led the way as a pioneer in dating for wealthy, successful singles looking for a serious, long-term relationship. With more than 2.3 million active members, MillionaireMatch.com is the dating hub for CEOs, professional athletes, celebrities, and entrepreneurs. To help guarantee that our members are communicating with other singles who have reached a similar level of success, MillionaireMatch.com was the first site to institute a wealth verification system that assures people on the site that those they are meeting have their own money and aren't just trying to get a slice of theirs.

Many women complain that they can’t find the relationship, because men are intimidated by their success and the fact that they are strong and independent. But, is it that men are intimidated, or is it something else that bothers them? Many men enjoy being in relationships with successful and strong women at MillionaireMatch.com. They enjoy being able to have intelligent conversations, and the fact that their wives or girlfriends are able to stand on their own. So, why do so many strong, intelligent, and independent women not finding the relationships they are looking for?
One of the biggest problems for men isn’t that the women in their lives are successful, but that they bring certain qualities from their careers into their relationships. For instance, men don’t want to be with women who are opinionated, decisive, and aggressive. They don’t mind women being their equals, but they don’t want to feel like they are lesser than their partners. They don’t want someone who is going to end up trying to control their every move.
Obviously, most men do have some requirements when looking for romantic partners. They seek intelligence, good work ethics, and women who have their own dreams of the future. Things really start to work out when the partners share the same goals. Women don’t necessarily have to be college graduates, but men do prefer women who have graduated from high school.
Naturally, there must also be a physical attraction. Not only do men want the above qualities in a woman, they also need to be attracted in order for relationships to really work. If a man is attracted to a woman, her successes will make her even that much more attractive to him. When all is said and done, it all comes down to how a man feels when they are with a woman, not how many skills she has or her level of education.
Equality is another issue in many relationships. Men don’t necessarily want to be more successful than their partners. But, they do want to feel like men, and they want to at least feel equal to their partners. They want women to let them make the big decisions once in a while, or at least let them think they are making the decisions. Women who are looking for relationships need to remember that if they make men feel emasculated, they aren’t going to have successful relationships.
Something else that turns many men off is women who act like they don’t need men. Most men can appreciate a woman who is strong enough to be able to live without a man in her life. But, they don’t need to hear it over and over again how much a woman doesn’t need them around. Just because a woman doesn’t need a man, it doesn’t mean that she has to act like it and not appreciate them. It is same in the reversal. No one wants to feel like they aren’t needed, whether they be men or women. The more unappreciated someone feels, the more resentful they will be, and the relationship just isn’t going to work out.
These days, there is a trend of women marrying down, and men marrying up. This doesn’t tend to make most men feel emasculated, and many women don’t care how much their mates earn, as long as they are ambitious. There are also many people who stick with traditional gender roles, including women, and prefer to be in relationships where the men are the bread winners, and the women take care of their families. There is nothing wrong with this either.

For some individuals, online dating is a godsend. The virtual space provides a safe environment for adults to find Mr. or Mrs. Right. However, other people have experienced the serious pitfalls of online dating -- "catfishing" and predators. Learning how to effectively navigate online dating can save you time, money, and your heart.
According to a Pew Research Center study, one in five American adults ages 25-34 years old have tried online dating. Many online daters also seek help from friends to create or review their profiles. Therefore, there's no surprise that so many dating websites exist.
Steve Harvey, comedian and Family Feud television host, recently launched his new online dating website called Delightful.com. The site caters to the dating needs of women and offers advice similar to his book-turned-movie called, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.
MillionaireMatch.com, a dating site with more than 2.2 million members, offers attractive singles the opportunity to connect with "certified millionaires." To become a certified millionaire, members must verify a personal (no business) tax return from the last financial year that shows earnings of over $200,000, a bank statement showing the member has earned over $200,000 during this current financial year, or documents proving the member's net assets (after all liabilities are deducted) are over $1 million.
The Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication research announced the emergence of an online dating "tipping point." This occurs when too much online communication before a first date causes a person to idolize someone prior to actually meeting them face-to-face.
People are then let down when meeting someone who doesn't reach their hefty expectations. This "tipping point" happens after 17 to 23 days; thus, researchers advise online daters not to wait longer than that to meet in-person.
For most, looks are our exclusive reason for interacting with potential soul mates. The dating app Tinder uses the same principle. Despite how superficial, science backs up the organization's appearance based matchmaking process.
Tinder has been successful in the dating scene. Users login an average of 11 times a day and spend about eight minutes seeking new matches during a single session.
Not all dating sites are created equal. Recently, the Federal Trade Commission fined JDI Dating, a company operating several dating websites, more than $600,000 for charging people to look at fake dating profiles. The business created these fake profiles to lure their users to become paid members.
Alexandra Tweten started the Instagram account Bye Felipe after realizing how many women receive aggressive or threatening comments from men while online dating. The account exposes dudes who send absurd messages when rejected or ignored.
Moreover, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) collected 3,294 complaints nationally about online dating sites in the past year -- a 40 percent increase in the last three years.
Here are a few tips to enhance your online dating experience:
• Read the Terms of Agreement before pressing the "I agree" button.
• Understand the site's cancellation policy.
• Make sure your payment is processed on a secure website.
• Test the site's customer service response to inquiries.
• Gather research about the service from friends and the BBB.
Online dating doesn't have to jeopardize your safety or sanity. From MillionaireMatch.com to the Tinder app, search for online dating sites that will provide you with a safe space to find your future husband or wife.

Successful women seeking a love connection prefer conservative men to their liberal counterparts, according to figures released last week by an online dating service.
MillionaireMatch.com, which bills itself as the “world’s largest dating site for highly successful people who are seeking a long-term relationship,” found that millionaire singles of both sexes were more attracted to conservatives than liberals.
For women, however, the preference for right-tilting men was stronger. Forty percent of single women verified as millionaires surveyed said they preferred to be matched with a conservative, while 38.5 percent said they wanted a moderate guy. Just 15 percent asked to be paired with a liberal or very liberal man.
“If there’s a ‘war on women’ being waged by Republicans, don’t tell that to successful single ladies who are looking for love online,” MillionaireMatch.com spokesman Jerry Buchs said in a news release.
The figures were compiled from online questionnaires filled out by about 10,000 singles, both men and women, who were verified by the dating service as millionaires, Mr. Buchs said.
Single men surveyed by the matchmaking site preferred women who were politically moderate to both conservatives and liberals. The site found that 37 percent favored moderate or “middle of the road” women, while 29 percent were most attracted to conservative women and 22 percent to women who were liberal or very liberal.
In both cases, the singles may have been trying to cast a wider net, given that men are more likely to register Republican and women are more likely to identify as Democrats. Still, the results weren’t particularly encouraging for single liberals of either sex.
“With most pundits predicting that Democrats will lose control of the Senate as well as seats in the House, the prospects aren’t any better for liberals with men and romance,” Mr. Buchs said.
The dating site advertises that it has 2.2 million members, and while they’re billed as “successful,” not all are millionaires.
MillionaireMatch.com, "a dating site for the rich and powerful," has taken out a personal ad in its new Times Square digital billboard.
MillionaireMatch.com, "a dating site for the rich and powerful," has taken out a personal ad in its new Times Square digital billboard.
Dating site MillionaireMatch.com, which appears to be about what it sounds like, has put up a promotional piece on a digital billboard in Times Square saying, "Join the 1 percent. Don't be left behind," according to a press release.
"We know that our site is not for everybody," Darren Shuster, a representative for the site said in the release. "But, for those who want to surround themselves with luxury and wealth, there's no better place to meet the right partner."

SAN DIEGO, March 17, 2014 – Good news for you if you’re a gold digger looking to marry for money. Plenty of men who’ve got the bank account you’re looking for are looking for you.
Money might not buy love, but it can buy marriage. According to a study published on the dating website MillionaireMatch.com, eligible millionaire men prefer to marry someone who doesn’t have as much money as they do. But you can have champagne taste: these men like dating “somebody who appreciates things.”
Fifteen thousand members of the dating website for millionaires participated in the survey. Nearly 80 percent of the men seek out non-millionaire women by design.
But the women members of the website feel exactly the opposite: 86.7 percent prefer to date men who make at least as much money as they do. Women said they don’t want to “carry the whole financial burden,” that they are “not looking to take care of anybody” and would prefer a financial stable partner.
The differences in dating preferences extend to how rich men and women deal with money when they marry. Just one in five millionaire men say they would insist on a prenuptial agreement.
Rich women are exactly the opposite. Nine out of ten insist they would not get married without a prenuptial agreement.
Should a millionaire get a prenuptial agreement? Yes, without question. Whatever you believe about divorce statistics, divorce is common enough that the potential of losing a tremendous amount of money is not worth rolling the dice.
Should you get a prenuptial agreement? Most of us aren’t millionaires. In general, unless you are young and just starting your lives together with absolutely no assets, a prenuptial agreement is a wise investment.
A prenuptial agreement embodies the two critically important elements necessary for any marriage to be successful: communication and trust. This is not about “who gets what,” or being selfish. It is a sign of financial openness and trust. Without being open about your financial situation and openly discussing your individual beliefs about money, you have not achieved complete honesty and transparency with each other.
It also forces another important conversation: beliefs about money, spending and saving, and the importance you place on money regarding self-worth and security can make or break a marriage when a couple can’t agree or compromise. It is far better to hash these issues out before realizing after ten years of marriage and two children that your differences made you a poor match.
What you may decide when discussing a prenuptial agreement is less about one partner keeping more money than another, but looking ahead to who stays in the family home with the children, how the childrens’ financial needs are accounted for, what money should be set aside for taking care of elderly parents or other family members, and keeping longtime family assets such as a vacation home intact. Your prenuptial agreement operates as a contract between spouses so you can agree in advance how to handle these and any other issue you wish should divorce occur.
There are some specific circumstances where a prenuptial agreement really is a must-have:
People who anticipate inheriting family property, at least if they want to make sure the property, heirlooms, or money stays in the family without the need for a complex tracing back to the date of the actual inheritance.
People whose partners come into the marriage with extensive debt, such as college loans, at least if you want to make sure you don’t become responsible for payment after a divorce or the other spouse asks for reimbursement for payments made.
People who own an existing business, especially if there are other partners or family interests involved.
People with children from prior relationships, if you want to ensure certain assets pass to your kids upon death or divorce, or provide for a college education or other needs if they are minors.
People whose income with the potential of a large increase, at least if they don’t want to potentially share it with anyone in the form of support after divorce.
There are several self-help books such as those offered through Nolo Press that can help you start the conversation. It will allow you to walk into an attorney’s office with a direction and plenty of information he or she will need to draw up your agreement with ease and a minimum of expense to you.
Once you have a mutually agreeable prenuptial document, file it away and look ahead toward a long and happy life together based on trust and communication. There is no better way to ensure a successful marriage whether you have one dollar or one million in your bank account.

Millionaires over the age of 65 are "truly living the dream when it comes to sex," according to a new survey. Well that's a relief. I was really worried about the state of millionaires in this country, you know, and in particular their sex lives.
The survey, which was done by MillionaireMatch.com, a dating site geared toward—you guessed it—millionaires, also suggested that the reason younger millionaires aren't twisting the sheets as often is because they're more focused on making money and "building their empire."
According to Darren Shuster, a PR rep for the site, male millionaires over 45 are having enough sex for everyone: Seventy-nine percent of them reported having sex more than four times a week, while 26 percent of younger male millionaires are getting it on this often. Only 12 percent of older millionaires (45-plus) reported having a less active sex life than the whipper-snappers.
One older millionaire surveyed commented, "I could have sex every night if I wanted to. It's easy to walk into a nice place and meet a beautiful woman who's available." Another said, "I'm living with someone at the moment and I never know what's on the agenda, sexually." Wow. Lucky guys.
RELATED: How Do Your Sex Numbers Compare?
In contrast, Shuster says that younger wealthy men are "planning for the future. They want the cars, the money, and the nice house so that they can attract the women they want." No word on what kind of woman that actually is, but I guess she has a lot to look forward to? Whatever the case, it seems age really is just a number when it comes to sex.

Here’s something illuminating about female millionaires.
Turns out, they prefer conservative men in and out of bed. Darren Shuster, the publicist for MillionaireMatch.com, the company that commissioned a survey, stressed in an email, “Especially in bed. Don’t kill the messenger.”
Hot off the presses from Silicon Valley, MillionaireMatch.com has released the results of a survey showing that show that rich ass females prefer their men on the “right” side of the political spectrum. According to site stats, 81.4 percent of female millionaires prefer a conservative man rather than someone liberal (this includes Republicans, Democrats and independents). A whopping 76.6 percent of Democrat female millionaires said they “would prefer to date a conservative man.”
Some comments from rich females to the site:
“I don’t want a liberal man, I want someone who believes in a traditional family.”
“I want to be with a man who is ambitious, liberal men simply aren’t as ambitious.”
“Conservative men plan for the future, they’re in it for the long run.”
“Liberal men are less masculine.”
“Politics doesn’t matter to me when we’re inside the bedroom.”
“I’m very liberal, but I’m open to other opinions.”
Only 10 percent of female millionaires strongly preferred a liberal male. Their comments are as follows:
“Liberal men are sensitive and patient. I want someone who understands me and supports my rights as a woman.”
“I want a man who doesn’t force traditional gender roles on me.”
“Liberal men treat you as an equal, there’s none of this ‘open the car door crap’ that makes me feel like I’m in the 1950s.”
Two comments that could infuriate some women involved females who remarked on how conservative males take care of the female financially and how conservative males perform in bed.
One of the surveyed women explained why she believes conservative men are more appealing: “Simply put, conservative men are real men. They are the breadwinners, they wear the pants and they treat you like a lady.”
And of the women surveyed, 85 percent apparently agreed that conservative men are better in bed.
Said one woman, “Conservative men have so much masculine energy, they’re dominant.”
Congratulations to CNN “Crossfire” Newt Gingrich, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly and radio host Rush Limbaugh and other so-called “sexy” conservative men out there.

Gold diggers rejoice: according to a survey by MillionaireMatch.com, San Francisco’s millionaire men are unlikely to require a pre-nup before getting hitched.
In a survey of 425 of the dating site’s loaded and love-lorn, less than 5 percent said they would want a pre-nup. (“Why ruin the romance with another piece of paper?” said one site user.)
“San Francisco millionaires overall tend to be less concerned with paperwork and romance,” said MillionaireMatch spokesman Darren Shuster in a statement. “This is a very passionate and impulsive community when it comes to matters of the heart.”
The site’s wealthy women weren’t quite as free-wheeling when it came to their finances: 81.6% said a pre-nup was “absolutely necessary.”
According to some research, this would indicate that the men of MillionaireMatch are actually more marriage-inclined than the women.
“If you’re thinking about a prenup, or — worse yet — your intended is pushing a prenup on you, you might as well go ahead and just cancel the wedding,” W. Bradford Wilcox, director of the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia, wrote in the New York Times last spring.
A National Center for Family and Marriage Research study found that couples who do not pool income are 145 percent more likely to end up in divorce court, compared those couples who share a bank account.
According to MillioniareMatch, this is how one female user summed up why she’s pro pre-nup: “In this town, you can always find a younger and hotter person. I don’t want to be left alone and with half as much money as I had before.”
What is the perfect way to celebrate an outstanding career achievement? With nice stiff one, of course. And no, I’m not talking about a drink.
What is the perfect way to celebrate an outstanding career achievement? With nice stiff one, of course. And no, I’m not talking about a drink.
While the average woman toils over the question, “How soon should I have sex with him?” women who have worked hard to attain wealth don’t give it a second thought. These highly motivated and accomplished women engage in sexual trysts more frequently, smudging the typical dating rules of engagement.
According to a recent survey, wealthy women average at least 4 new partners during a 12-month period, the same number of times the average man changes his bed sheets. The survey points out that the number of sexual encounters reported by wealthy women outnumbers wealthy men who reported 3 new sexual partners within a year.
The results, cultivated from a poll of 1,500 men and women who actively engage in the online dating site, MillionaireMatch.com, were compared with the national average of 10% of women who report sleeping with at least 2 partners during a 12-month period. Wealthier women seem to experience a sense of sexual freedom. But why is this?
Wealthy women are not worried about what a man will think of them because they have already established their identity through their ability to accomplish their goals. They aren’t witholding sex as a motivator for a wedding ring because they don’t need to be married to feel good about their lives.
Wealthy women have learned to define their sexual appetites and seek pleasure when they feel ready, instead of playing the game of cat and mouse, ultimately resulting in a higher sexual satisfaction level.
Consider Kim Kardashian, the vixen who made headlines after posting a picture of herself in a sexy bathing suit to show off her post-baby curves. Curious bloggers speculate that she has shamelessly dated dozens of men since being introduced to the limelight. Other financially fit women may not be as open with their dating lives as Kim K. but that doesn’t mean they aren’t openly yielding to their sexual desires when it comes to men.
If you can conquer the bad boys in the boardroom or upgrade your brand from your garage to a suite in Santa Monica, you damn well deserve a shiny new boy toy (or four) to help blow out the candle on your cupcake.

Is real estate really the new dating aphrodisiac? A California-based website thinks so.
MillionaireMatch.com, which bills itself as matching up successful people, says it encourages clients to include real estate among their luxury items when filling out a profile. It seems your property ranks right up there with your Italian sports car, when trying to impress on a first date. Boats and jewellery can also be easily thrown into the mix.
The company refers to its strategy as digital peacocking. “For many successful people, this is the life they deserve. And our members feel like they also deserve to share their luxury and success with others who appreciate the finer things in life. Showing their peacock colors, that’s pretty darn natural in the world of dating,” says the company, in a release.
Posting at least one luxury item on a male profile results on average in 50% more interest from female members, the company says.
The dating site offered up this gem as sample from a recent profile. “Here’s a pic of my only child — my 2012 Ferrari.”

Kanye West and Jamie Foxx may have recorded "Gold Digger" from a guy's perspective, but a new survey of millionaires looking for love suggests that it's millionaire women, not millionaire men, who are are most apprehensive about remarrying.
MillionaireMatch.com -- a dating site for the rich -- surveyed 5,000 divorced millionaire members and found that 83.4 percent of wealthy men would consider remarrying in the next 5 years, while only 5.2 percent said never again. Eleven percent said they'd consider tying the knot after five years.
It was a different story for women on the site. A whopping 67.9 percent of divorced female millionaires said "no thanks" to marrying again, or would wait at least 10 years or more before tying the knot. A mere 32.1. percent of female millionaires said they were willing to consider remarrying in the next 5 years.
It's not the first time MillionaireMatch.com has looked at the dating preferences of its users. Back in September, the site surveyed its members and found that a majority of millionaire men, 79.6 percent, seek out non-millionaire women, while 84.5 percent of the female millionaires would prefer to date another millionaire.

According to a new survey by MillionaireMatch.com, a dating site for millionaires, rich men have very different dating preferences than their female counterparts.
The site surveyed a random sample of nearly 15,000 of their members in order to discern what type of people millionaires prefer to date. The results revealed that the vast majority of millionaire men, 79.6 percent, seek out non-millionaire women, while 84.5 percent of the female millionaires would prefer to date another millionaire.
Darren Shuster, a representative for MillionaireMatch.com, said in a press release that one of the reasons rich men don't want to date rich women is because they want a partner they can take care of.
“We were very surprised to learn that the great majority of our male millionaire members sought non-millionaires,” said Shuster. “It seems that financially independent men want to share their wealth with those less fortunate. With women, the story is much different.”
The female millionaires surveyed indicated that they are “not looking to take care of anybody" and would prefer a financially stable partner.
The survey also found that the rich women would be more careful with their wealth if they entered into a marriage than the rich men. Eighty-two percent of the female respondents said they would insist on a prenuptial agreement, while only 17.4 percent of the male respondents would do the same.
This isn't the first survey to look at what types of people are preferable to date. A study from August 2013 found that people who save a lot of money are more desirable than those who spend a lot. And a survey from July 2012 found that dating is easier for "hot women."

San Fransisco, CA (prHWY.com) March 29, 2013 - San Francisco, USA -- MillionaireMatch.com is betting that its customers won't mind paying 20 percent more to find a right person to date with to spend time with.
The world's largest dating club in terms of members is raising its premium membership rates by 20% per month.
The increase starts from March 22nd, for new members, and kicks in starting for current members when they renew.
MillionaireMatch.com's rate hike affects about 2 million of members in the U.S. and Canada, including Northeast Ohioan residents who spend more time on dating sites to find their Partners.
"I feel that the enhanced value of the MillionaireMatch membership over the past five years far exceeds increase in the membership fee levels, and it will continue to allow us to bring our members even
greater value on everything we offer," MillionaireMatch's chief financial officer told analysts earlier this month.
Nichole, a premium Member from Boston who dates weekly to find a perfect match for her, said she has no problems paying an increased fee.
"My membership is paid for when I date and want to check someone's contact information. Whether it is a new member at MillionaireMatch, a rich man or anyone . . . the 20 percent increase will easily be offset," she said.
Galanti said the premium membership rates were last raised in Aug 2011.
About half of MillionaireMatch's members are Premium members, who account for more than two-thirds of its sales.
"Historically, when our membership fee structure has been higher than some of our competitors, that's never concerned us from the standpoint that we feel our membership and the value that we provide our member is a good value," Galanti said. "We didn't do it arrogantly. We did it thoughtfully and what we believe is modestly."
But customer service strategist Alex Irion warned that companies that raise their prices need to
be careful not to lose sight of their customers.
MillionaireMatch.com, on the other hand, has a different business model than most and higher-income
customers who are less likely to quibble over a 20% increase. "Average $30 per person will be spent on MillionaireMatch every month," he said.
MillionaireMatch member Julie Michener of Minneapolis doesn't mind the increase. "20% more isn't going to break us," she said via e-mail.
Here are some new services which are provided to all of our members:
1. Advanced profile features
2. Enhanced search facility
3. Remove fake profiles
The MillionaireMatch.com team will return your investment by giving you a good partner, and good friends.
We hope our people will like us as earlier and we are looking for a more members on our portal to serve. If we get more members than there will be more options for them and they can find their choice in a short time period.

Britney Spears has “turned to online dating websites in a bid to bag a new man,” claims the National Enquirer.
According to the tabloid, in the wake of her split from fiancé Jason Trawick, Spears has been “scouring Internet matchmaking sites, looking for her Mr. Right.”
“She doesn’t have the courage to go on any dates yet, but she’s doing a lot of anonymous flirting,” a so-called “friend” tells the Enquirer.
The tab’s source reveals, “Britney has tried several sites, including MillionaireMatch.com. She’s found a few guys she thinks are hot. She’ll chat and flirt but won’t go further.”
Ah, so no actual dates… how convenient for the Enquirer that there have been no public meetings with real-life men that could be photographed or otherwise documented — after hours of “anonymous flirting.”
Spears’ loved ones think the online dating is a positive development, says the magazine, as long as there’s no, um, dating.
“They think it’s a good thing that she’s occupying her time with thoughts of moving on in the romance department,” explains the Enquirer source. “They’re not opposed to her doing the online thing so long as she doesn’t actually go out and meet a stranger from the sites.”
If this story sounds like the bogus, half-baked speculation of a magazine that’s run out of interesting things to say about Spears, that’s because it is!
A source close to the pop star literally laughed off the online dating rumor when Gossip Cop inquired about the Enquirer.
