HOW TO SHOP FOR A MILLIONAIRE

Perhaps diamonds were a girl's best friend when Marilyn Monroe was in the market for men, but these days who among us would not be happier snuggling up to a prenuptial agreement that guaranteed a lifetime of financial security? Just ask Jane Fonda or Ivana Trump.

As mothers perennially tell their daughters, and socialites their attorneys, it is just as easy to love a rich man as a poor one. For, as former first lady Nancy Reagan once declared, "Whoever said that money can't buy happiness doesn't know where to shop."

Far be it from us to exhort you to sell your birthright for a mess of pocket change, but let's be practical. Just as there is no shame in marrying a poor man, there are numerous advantages to marrying a rich one. For ex ample, dinners at The Ritz and shoes by Fendi. So why should we scorn those lonely little rich boys with money to burn—or, better still, to spend on us?

If a heart-shaped tub in a tacky motel is all the joy you crave, skip this chapter. But if you think you could force yourself to be happy in a villa on the Riviera where a handsome houseboy serves you froufrou drinks, read on to learn how to focus your efforts on the methods that smart millionaire-shoppers are using to find the man of their dreams.

Although good social skills are very helpful, shy or reserved types should not skip this chapter; this is one social domain in which the Amazon Warrior does not reign supreme. Nor do you have to be a middle- or up per-class girl by birth: Truly wealthy men are accustomed to being much richer than the women they date, and surprisingly are seldom snobs (unlike wealthy women). Yes, the old standardsstill apply: Although women still fret over "marrying down," men never have and never will. In fact, wealthy men seem to prefer simple, decent women to hard-core socialites and glamour queens. After all, didn't Burt ditch Loni for a waitress?

In the same vein, don't think you have to be a brilliant conversationalist. Wealthy men are just as likely to be drawn to a shy woman as to an extrovert. Indeed, if you are more of a listener than a talker, you might be a perfect mate to a heavy hitter who likes to unwind at night by confiding in you.

Far more important than your personality type is knowing how to look, where to go, and how to act when you get there. And that is what this chapter is all about.

A HIGH STARES ATTITUDE

In earlier chapters, we talked at length about the virtue of patience when you're playing the dating game for serious stakes. Because the stakes involved in marrying a millionaire are so high, with the winners gaining the potential for lifetime financial security, expect to invest a significant amount of time and energy—as well as a tremendous amount of patience and determination—in the hunt.

It is also a fact that a millionaire is likely to view you as an investment, and to calculate whether you deserve to share his fortune. Wealthy businessmen in particular will view marriage as a partly commercial proposition. This may seem mercenary, but if you are expecting him to give you what you want, you should be prepared to be what he wants. It is a cold but a fair trade.

All in all, unless you regularly socialize with or work alongside wealthy men, enticing and seducing a millionaire is an ambitious enterprise. Aside from a select hand full of fabulously wealthy men who sleep in oxygen tents or prefer the company of young boys, have you ever known a major money dude to lack for hangers-on? Be he short and squat or obscenely fat, the allure of a thick bulging wallet seems to have an aphrodisiac-like effect on everyone around him, male and female alike. Indeed, sometimes the greatest obstacle to a millionaire is his adoring (and constant) coterie.

Of course, while the vast majority of his minions are fair-weather friends who will decamp the moment the party ends, the lure of his capital will have a near sexual effect on women, so be prepared for fierce competition for this select handful of overachievers and heirs.

To present a fascinating profile to a fascinating man, you must develop a keen, cold eye for your physical assets and liabilities, and learn the tricks to making the most of what you've got. There are two reasons why looking your best is essential in the hunt for Dollar Dan: First, you will inevitably be competing for his attention with women who may be younger and/or prettier than you. So you want to be sure you stand out. Second, if you plan to be romantically linked with a wealthy man, you will share some of the spotlight that is often focused on him. Whether you are next to him on the dais at a banquet where he is being honored, or on his arm at an elegant dinner party, people will be looking at you, and your appearance will reflect on him. If he's very wealthy he probably sets great store by his public persona, so the woman he wants by his side must b someone he feels proud to be seen with.

Millionaire hunting is not for the easily discouraged or the impatient. If you are serious about a lucrative marriage contract, then you must treat this as an important long-term goal, akin to obtaining a university degree—only this time the piece of paper you receive upon graduation will have lots of dollar signs printed on it.

Your attitude will make the difference! What will win you the prize are plain virtues such as determination, persistence, and cheerfulness. Remember that the scar city of wealthy men, and the competition for their attention, could mean that you might spend a year (or even several years) looking for Mr. Richie Right.

Also keep in mind that wealthy men tend to be under tremendous stress in their daily work lives. They often look to women as pleasurable distractions and interesting, loyal companions who help them forget about their pressing problems. As a group they are decisive "doers" who are accustomed to making snap judgments. So it is crucial that their first impressions of you be positive—and nothing will draw their interest more than someone who seems relaxed and upbeat. When you go out to find your future husband, focus on the happiness that could be yours instead of the difficulties involved in obtaining it, and you'll project precisely the right attitude.
