Go for the big guns

Connecticut was an historical center of gun manufacturing and a lot of people have got rich here in the business. Colt, based in Connecticut since the 1800s, employs roughly 900 people in the state. Two other major gun companies, Sturm, Ruger & Company and Mossberg & Sons, are also based in the state. In all, the industry employs about 2,000 people in Connecticut1. Thus if you are looking for a rich date in Connecticut, it may make sense to look among guys who are associated with the gun industry – whether it’s manufacturing, retail or marketing. Hartford is again the most likely place to start as it is home to the corporate headquarters of U.S. Fire Arms and United Technologies...Much of Connecticut's manufacturing is for the military. Firearms and ammunition, first produced here at the time of the American Revolution, are still made. Other than this you can also keep a look out for events like shooting competitions promoted by gun manufacturing companies which are sure to throw you in touch with the successful guys of the industry.

Mingle with the Honchos of Airlines Industry

Though famed for its rural loveliness, Connecticut derives most of its wealth from industry. Its industrial output includes transportation equipment, especially helicopters and aircraft parts. Due to the prominence of the aircraft industry in the state, Connecticut has an official state aircraft, the F4U Corsair, and an official Connecticut Aviation Pioneer, Igor Sikorsky. The state officially recognizes aviation pioneer Gustave Whitehead as the "Father of Connecticut Aviation" for his powered flight in Bridgeport in 1901. Groton is still a center for submarine building and while aircraft manufacturer Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation is based in Stratford, aerospace manufacturer Pratt & Whitney is headquartered in East Hartford. Even though today much of the earlier focus on industries has declined, Connecticut’s manufacturing and engineering plants remain an important part of its economy and its executives among the best paid professionals of the city. So in your search for rich single Nutmeggers, look out for the industrial barons or the high-flying CEOs of the aircraft manufacturing sector.

Head for the casinos

While Foxwoods has far more extensive offerings, being the second largest casino in the country, it is Mohegan Sun with its phantasmagoric decor that you are sure to find one of Connecticut's most fun and spirited environment.

Wealthy Patrons of Culture

It is no secret that wealthy men are some of the most generous patrons of arts and culture. Hence, frequenting high profile events in the state’s cultural calendar may throw you in the way of a rich single looking for similar interests in the arts. Apart from the capital city of Hartford, New Haven is well known for its cultural scene. High-quality theater, opera, and ballet performances abound throughout the year. The Green is a National Historic Landmark surrounded by magnificent churches built during the early 1800s. Here weekend summer jazz concerts attract thousands of music lovers. Along the Connecticut city's Theater Row, the renovated halls put up musicals and Broadway shows. On the other hand to meet guys interested in experimental productions, you can head to the Yale Repertory Theater. Yet another respected university institution is the Yale University Art Gallery, designed by Louis Kahn. It displays American and European work and has a sculpture garden with amazing exhibits.

Frequent Affluent Neighborhoods

One of the most effective ways of coming across rich singles is to frequent neighborhoods where they live. New Canaan is the wealthiest town in Connecticut and one of the richest in the entire country even, with a Median family income of $236,758 and Median home price of $1,133,0002.  Darien, Greenwich, Weston, Westport and Wilton are other suburbs of the state that have per capita incomes over $65,000. In Hartford, the West End is one of the poshest places as home to the Governor's residence, Elizabeth Park, and the University of Connecticut School of Law, which also abuts the Hartford Golf Club. Elizabeth Park in the West End was created in 1895, when Charles N. Pond gave his estate to the Hartford Parks Commission which created the park and named it in honor of his wife. The park features the oldest, and one of the largest, municipal rose gardens in the United States. Sheldon Charter Oak is renowned as the location of the Charter Oak and its successor monument as well as the home of the one of the wealthiest families of Connecticut, Samuel Colt’s family estate – Armsmear. The North East neighborhood in Hartford again is home to Keney Park and a number of the city's oldest and ornate homes. The easiest way to mingle with rich singles would be to buy a place at any of these neighborhoods but if you find that way beyond your resources, make it a point to frequent places where they are likely to hang out like coffee shops, supermarkets or even the local park.

Finding a rich single man to date is as much a matter of hard work as good luck. However once you know where to look and how to spot them, you may be well on your way to getting the guy of your gilded dreams.
