Yes it’s possible there’s a rich man out there who might date you even though you’re over 35 and a plain jane but don’t expect him to be a young good looking hunk

Need a reality check? If you’re over 35 and trying to chase a rich man there’s something you need to understand. You’re bringing assets to the plate that are losing youth, firmness, elasticity, luster and physical appeal. Finding a buyer is not going to be as easy for you as the 22 year old with firmer breasts, a firmer derriere, and smoother, tighter skin. That means you’re not going to have your pick of the prime rich single men on the market. Your bargaining chips aren’t going to be worth much.

It’s like that banker who answered that girls ad on craisgslist last year said in explaining to her why her proposition to trade her spectacular beauty for his money would make for a crappy business deal:

“Your offer, from the prospective of a guy like me, is plain and simple a cr@ppy business deal. Here’s why. Cutting through all the B.S., what you suggest is a simple trade: you bring your looks to the party and I bring my money. Fine, simple. But here’s the rub, your looks will fade and my money will likely continue into perpetuity…in fact, it is very likely that my income increases but it is an absolute certainty that you won’t be getting any more beautiful!

So, in economic terms you are a depreciating asset and I am an earning asset. Not only are you a depreciating asset, your depreciation accelerates! Let me explain, you’re 25 now and will likely stay pretty hot for the next 5 years, but less so each year. Then the fade begins in earnest. By 35 stick a fork in you!”

The number of prospective husbands grow fewer for a woman once she hits 35, and this goes for beautiful women, intelligent, highly educated women. So holding out for the hottest, most desirable wealthy bachelor might not be all that smart. Being willing to consider men who are less than perfect and perhaps even physically repulsive might increase your chances of finding a rich man to marry.
