While anyone can have an active social life, cultivating the right contacts is an art in itself. Knowing wealthy people brings a host of advantages in one’s life – they not only introduce you to material indulgences but also help you appreciate the worth of the finer things of life as well as that of hard work. And yet women tend to focus too much on professionals and entrepreneurs and miss out on one important demographic group – retirees who are both rich and single. So if you are on the lookout for life with the proverbial silver spoon and don’t mind a few silver hairs, here are a few tops on meeting rich retired single men.
Know where to look
One of the ways to look for rich companions and have a blast at the same time would be to go on a vacation to retirement destinations. Rich businessmen and industrialists who have worked hard for the most of their lives can be readily found living it up Caribbean islands or the playing grounds of Las Vegas. Tropical paradises such as Costa Rica and Panama are the choice of vacations for those who don’t mind hopping out of the country but do your homework since many of these destinations can have more retired couples than single men. If on the other hand you are reluctant to leave the mainland, head for the sunshine state of Florida where the Naples and Marcos Island areas are well known for their large population of wealthy retirees as well as other well-heeled Floridians. In fact most of the area’s residents can be found owning two or three homes - whether for their own private use or to rent out to vacationers. The town also has the highest number of golf holes per capita than any other place in the United States, yet another evidence of the good life that its wealthy residents are used to. This concentration of rich retirees in Florida is good news for women looking to meet potential partners who are as loaded as they come. This is because with plenty of waterfront properties and upscale shopping arcades, Florida and its exclusive retirement havens are ideal for those with relaxation on their minds and money in their bank accounts.
TIP: Millionaire Match has many single rich retired men from USA, Canada and Europe looking for women to date and marry.
Pick up Golf
What do guys do when they have plenty of time on their hands and enough money to afford expensive club memberships – why play golf of course. And if you are interested in the rich and single seniors, it would make far more sense to try your luck at your local driving range than at a sports bar or the neighborhood ice-skating rink. So pick up a golf club from a swanky sports shop and head for the nearest golf club. There is, in fact, no need to know golf at all, since that is exactly why you are at the range – to practice! After you have smacked a few balls and looked happily incompetent, you could ask the nice-looking, silver-haired guy in the next lane to offer you some advice. The only catch here is that memberships at such exclusive clubs may be rather steep – to get around this, you could apply for day memberships which would be in your budget or tag along with a rich friend/co-worker when they drop in at the club.
Develop professional skills
Leisure activities are not the only way you can catch the attention of single rich retirees. A good way of making yourself a part of their lives is to work as a trainer of skills that they want to pick up. Since many senior wealthy people are technologically challenged, you could offer to teach them to surf the web for information or recreation. Or maybe help them learn to use a computer to maintain accounts and records. Those seniors who are already technologically savvy can be interested in other areas like health and holistic living. Now is the time when they have ample leisure for massages and other such indulgences. Many of them are keen on improving their quality of life which is why you can encourage them to try out meditation and exercises such as Tai-chi and Pilates or you could continue to train them in conventional exercises such as swimming but tailored for their age. Apart from all this, professionals in nutrition, diet and alternative therapies such as acupressure and aromatherapy would also be in demand among the seniors. Being quipped with such skills would not only put you in close proximity with rich single retirees and thus give you a better chance to know them, but in the end it would be adding to the quality of your lives, - both his and your own.
Business places are usually a good way to meet successful men. These could be the usual places of business like banks and conference halls or professional events like lectures, workshops and seminars. However since retirees cannot expected to be found frequenting places of daily or hectic business, it may make more sense to refine your search areas. Think about attending annual general meetings of companies in which rich retirees may have extensive stocks, especially older traditional companies like AT&T and IBM if you're looking for sixty plus men.
Charity dinners are another common hunting ground for women looking to hook up with wealthy partners. This is even more applicable in case of senior rich singles since many of them find a genuine satisfaction in using their well-earned millions to support a worthy cause of two. At the same time though these fundraising gals are important places to be seen if one is to make a mark on the social scene which is why these are popular venues where the rich and successful people gather. However be sure to look and dress your best since first impressions do matter when you are dealing with those who have the best of everything.
On the other hand if you cannot afford such $500-a-plate dinners, you can join non-profits where single rich retirees volunteer or which they contribute to. You can work alongside them or meet them to solicit contributions.
Above all, be fun and interesting to hang out with. After a lifetime of chasing financial targets and meeting social commitments, rich single retirees simply want to have a good time. Sometimes they may even be leading rather lonely lives with grown up children far away and ex-wives interested in nothing more than fat alimony checks. So make an effort to bring fun, adventure and variety into your rich retired date’s life and you may be rewarded in more ways than one.
