He Said, She Said: Dating Habits of Silicon Valley Millionaires
Have no shame, gold diggers! Eligible millionaires in Silicon Valley love you just the way you are.
A recent study from MillionaireMatch.com found that millionaire men in Silicon Valley, 82.6 percent to be exact, are most likely to seek out non-millionaire women. And get this, only 16.2 percent would insist on a prenuptial agreement.
Millionaire women, however, are quite the opposite and 86.7 percent of them prefer to date other millionaires. And 92.4 percent insist on the union between prenups and dry ink.
According to the study, a random sample of 524 millionaires in the area, there's plenty of "new money" to be found in Silicon Valley between the ages of 29 and 40.
Darren Shuster, marketing manager for Matchamaker.com, has a theory: wealthy men "want to share their wealth with the less fortunate."
Apparently to marry a non-millionaire means to be charitable. The more popular responses from men polled had to do with dating "somebody who appreciates things" and not dating "bossy, middle-aged women who can take care of themselves."
In the on-going battle of the sexists, that's one point for the fellas.
For women it's a matter of "not carrying the whole financial burden," according to a female member worth $100 million. (What financial burden is she referring to when one member of the couple is worth $100 million?) Must be tough when one decides love does cost a thing.
