Dating can be tricky. Dating as a high-value woman and navigating how and where to find a high-caliber or successful man can be particularly challenging. These are the sentiments of single women in New York, Miami, London, and metropolitan cities across the globe.
When it comes to defining what a “successful man” is, many women have differing viewpoints on the matter. While one woman may define a high-value man as a wealthy one who spoils her with all the affluence in the world, another woman may simply define a successful man as a hard-working one rich with purpose, morals, and integrity.
I say to each, her own. But with all the proverbial fish in the sea, why are so many single women having such a hard time finding a successful guy?
With the advent of dating apps, dating itself isn’t hard at all. It’s actually quite easy. Too easy. And therein lies the problem.
If you’re not careful, it’s easy to find yourself wasting time on endless dates with men who just aren’t up to par. And because it’s so easy for any Joe to finagle a decent enough dating profile and keep up a reasonably entertaining rapport, it’s difficult to vet the time wasters until you’re sitting over a cheap glass of wine bored half to death by this fool.
Where To Find Good Guys Without Online Dating
The other day while cozied up on the couch watching re-runs of 90-day fiance and chit-chatting with my cousin, she belted out jokingly “where do I find a good man. An extraordinary one. And I wouldn’t hurt if he were a millionaire”. At that moment I had an epiphany.
As my cousin looked up from her phone, a hint of despair in her expression and her finger ready to swipe right on a ‘Jeff, 31, Manager at Self Made’, I responded… “not there, honey.”
I began to think back to the high-caliber men I had dated or known as friends, co-workers, or family members and it dawned on me. High-caliber men, and certainly the same is true for rich and wealthy men, are not on tinder (not to say you won’t find the extremely bored, curious, or potentially troublesome ones there occasionally)!
Think about it…
The same abundance of idiots and stupidity my cousin got fed to her tinder feed on a daily basis, (time wasters, ghosters, generally unqualified), that’s the same frustration high-caliber men are dealing with. Truth be told, from my experience, many successful men (the high integrity ones) don’t have the time or the patience for the foolishness.
Now, of course, I’m not saying high-quality men, rich men, or wealthy men aren’t on these dating apps at all. I’m just saying before online dating existed. How did savvy single women find successful men?
Successful men, rich men, wealthy men, successful men, and overall high-quality men are out here in the flesh living their daily lives. Considering the frustration many singles are feeling with online dating, it’s certainly interesting to consider perhaps an offline strategy to meet successful men.
The most obvious place to search for a high-caliber man? In real life!
In the 1953 movie How To Marry a Millionaire three New York models, Shatze, Pola and Loco set up in an exclusive apartment with a plan. Tired of cheap men and a lack of money, they intend to use all their talents to trap and marry three millionaires. The trouble is that it’s not so easy to tell the rich men from the hucksters.
As Lauren Bacall said in the iconic rooftop scene featuring Betty Grable and Marilyn Monroe…
“The idea is this– if you had your choice of everybody in the world, which would you rather marry, a rich guy or a poor one?”Lauren Bacall as Schatze Page
“I think I’d rather marry a rich one.”Betty Grable as Loco Dempsey
“Alright then, where would you be more likely to meet one? In a walk-up, or in a joint like this?”Lauren Bacall as Schatze Page
… Joint being where the successful men already are!
Here are 21 of the best places where you can to strategically put yourself to meet a high-caliber man.
Having trouble finding Mr. Right? Wondering how and where to find a high-quality man, a rich man, a successful man, or a wealthy man? Tired of Playing little leagues on dating apps like Tinder, Bumble, and The League? Forget all the fluffy dating advice and let’s get real.
Lifestyle Places To Find Successful Men
1. Wealthy, Affluent Neighborhoods
Here’s what to wear!
I met an insanely wealthy man once while walking to my car after working from a coffee shop in one of the most affluent neighborhoods in town. As I was walking down the street, he pulled up next to me in his white Rolls Royce and politely asked “hello, ma’am did you call for an Uber?” After exchanging laughs and jokes we exchanged contact information.
This interaction happened all because I just happened to be in his neck of the woods. Moral of the story… find cute things to do in affluent neighborhoods where you can be spotted by the types of mean you’d like to attract. And these things can be super ordinary, for example, grocery shopping, roller skating, riding your bike for exercise… whatever!! Just make sure you’re looking your best.
2. Exclusive Gyms
Here’s what to wear!
Make sure you are dressed in very flatter activewear — the kind with the good material that makes your butt look amazing (I personally swear by Fabletics). Make sure you have on a full face of very natural-looking makeup and your hair is fully done up too!
One thing about high-caliber men, they take care of themselves. And I never met a rich man who didn’t work out on a daily basis. Even if he’s not a gym rat, there’s a good chance (if he doesn’t have a gym at home) that he has a membership to an exclusive gym.
Some of the most exclusive gyms in Miami for example include Equinox, Anatomy Fitness, and Lifetime Fitness (in Boca Raton).
3. Fine Dining Establishments
What to have in your purse!
You’ll find time is a scarce resource for men that make lots of money, dining out is a regular occurrence. Regular as in breakfast lunch and dinner. You’ll find these men at the pricey steakhouses, yes. But they’ll often frequent quaint local spots near their home or work as well.
Don’t be shy to sit at the bar and make friends with the bartender (or not lol). Wear something sexy but professional. Something that looks like you just left work and you’re here for a quick lunch, happy hour, or to just unwind.
4. High-End Grocery Stores
Here’s what to wear!
Something all men love regardless of socio-economic status is their bellies. Even if they love dining out, taking out, or Uber Eats (don’t we all), they’ll still need to stock up on essentials for when they’re home.
Need some groceries of your own? Make your way to the higher-end grocers in the upscale neighborhoods to pick up your basics.
5. High-End Boutiques and Luxury Department Stores
Here’s what to wear!
Men with style (and money to spare) appreciate when he can spend 15 minutes in a store like say Neiman Marcus or Saks Fifth ave and he’s sure to find something he likes. And if he could use a little help in the styling department, there’s always a cute sales girl nearby ready to assist.
Unlike women, these men usually don’t waste tons of time in the store. So keep your eyes open and move swiftly ladies.
