Politics 2 October 2013 Millionaire men don't like millionaire women "Bossy, middle-aged millionaires" only attractive to women. Sign up for our weekly email * Print HTML Millionaire men prefer to date non-millionaire women as they don’t like to be challenged by their partners, while HNW women are more likely to be interested in men with the same level of wealth. That’s according to a survey of 15,000 individuals by Millionaire Match, an online dating website that claims it only has wealthy members, including CEOs, entrepreneurs and professional athletes, as well as beauty queens, models and celebrities. The research confirmed the stereotype of men not being able to be around powerful women, as it found that 79.6 per cent of the men surveyed wanted to date less wealthy women, while 84.5 per cent of the women interviewed preferred to go out with other fellow wealthy individuals. When asked why, HNW men said they preferred "younger, attractive women" to a "bossy, middle-aged millionaire". Perhaps the same "reasoning" can explain why women represent only 17.4 per cent of directors of FTSE 100 companies. Women, however, said they wanted to remain in control of their finances and were not interested in "carrying the whole financial burden". One of the women surveyed – who said to be worth more than $100m – said she was "not looking to take care of anybody".
