I was on Model Mayhem and a banner came up for a millionaire/trophy dating website!

To sign up you have to be either rich/wealthy/successful or attractive/beautiful/sexy. You can choose whether you are a wealthy or beautiful man/woman searching for a wealthy or beautiful man/woman (no, you can't be both at the same time, apparently. No wonder they need this website. These demographics probably never coincide in real life!)

Finally, a dating website that gets down to what's really important in a significant other. While thousands of lonely shmucks still sit filling out personality profiles, here come these brave men and women to tear through the bullshit and get down to the brass tacks of love: looks OR cash money.

Some gems:

You may have worked hard to be where you are today - wealthy, successful and single. You are looking to meet someone who may not have wealth, but have a lot to offer - youth, beauty and personality. You may be young and beautiful, wanting a better life, and looking to date a millionaire....

Some people may think it is superficial to focus only on WEALTH and BEAUTY when finding a mate. But let's face it... it's only human nature to be attracted to these two important qualities.

WEALTH - As the saying goes "Money Makes the World Go Around". Some of us work very hard to make money in order to survive. It is not hard for us to see that those who are wealthy also holds power, commands respect and enjoys a lifestyle of constant pampering. At SeekingMillionaire, we believe wealth is a very important quality in selecting a significant other. Over 50% of all marriages end in divorce because of money or the lack thereof. Love and financial stability are both very important foundations of a lasting relationship. So as they say, why have love only, when you can have love and wealth?

BEAUTY - Beauty is a quality that provides a perceptual experience of pleasure, affirmation, meaning, or goodness. A beautiful person is one who invokes powerful feelings of attraction and emotional well-being. It is not surprising that all of us dream of being with a model, beauty queen or a Hollywood actor. Our website is also designed to cater to beautiful people, with the main goal of match-making those with beauty with those with wealth.

Of course! The divorce rate is soaring because the divorcing couples aren't rich enough! How did we not realize what was at the root of this problem? Thanks, SeekingMillionaire!

What I think is most interesting is these people cannot possibly believe in these contrived rationalizations. They are catering to cynical, "realistic" clientele with this "let's face it" no-nonsense approach, but I bet you $100K/year they are completely cynical about this cynicism, high fiving over the naive rich and beautiful who buy their spurious selling of unapologetic shallowness. Does double cynicism equal sincerity? Do smirks cancel each other out?

Hey, sexy girls join free. Well, it's a back-up plan.

If you want to find serious millionaire dating, you can google "millionaire dating sites" or "rich men dating sites", like "millionairematch" is on the first result.
