Ask Roseann – the most Wickedly Good Matchmaker on the Planet!
I received this email today from a young, good looking guy. He wrote:
I had met you at the Country Club event when (deleted names for confidentiality) was presenting. We ran in to each other when I was with (someone you know). I was very intrigued by your company and what you do. I never have had any difficulties dating in the past, however finding that special someone has eluded me. Currently, I am looking for a woman between 35-45 that is very wealthy. You would think living in Scottsdale that this would be easy to find on my own, but it has proven not to be for a number of reasons. Anyways, I was hoping if you currently had a female client that fits this profile and she really wanted a great catch that I could be put in the mix?
Please let me know your thoughts?
(a great catch)
Here is my response to the great catch seeking a very wealthy woman.
Thank you for the email and for your honesty.
If you were a girl writing seeking a wealthy man, I would tell you I don’t work with gold diggers and if you want a sugar daddy, I’m trying to protect my clientele from people after them for their money.
So, switch the sexes, same answer.
If you were wealthy and that was the reason for seeking someone wealthy, it still is such a narrowing criteria. It would eliminate so many wonderful single women who might be the better one to love and support you and your dreams and be at your side forever. Those would be the leading criteria I could search on. And knowing you have a job probably means you’re not independently wealthy.
You are the first one who’s written me to seek a wealthy woman (in 18 years). But I’m old fashioned. I believe in true love. I want people to meet for the right reasons. To have someone who will love them, no matter what, in good times and bad, richer and poorer. If you marry for the right reasons, you’ll conquer anything together.
The couples I introduce stay married. I’m not going to mess with that!
I could have said and have said to others who are fans of the popular Millionaire Matchmaker TV show and love her brassiness, “This is not the millionaire matchmaker. If anyone wants to meet my millionaires, by-by!” If that is your leading criteria, your relationship is doomed from the start. Finding people who want to date a millionaire is not what God put me on earth to do. I take the skills I’ve been given as a blessing. The happy relationships and healthy families and low divorce rate are the biggest gifts I can leave behind. I’m honored to work with who I work with and to introduce every one of them. I am a protector.

Stay tuned for further conversations about money and relationships. I have more to say. And perhaps you do, as well? Please comment here or on our Facebook page.
How would you have responded to this email? What do you think of marrying for money? Did you marry for money? How has that affected your life? Do you feel you sold your soul? If you could do it over, would you? How are your children turning out from the decisions you are making? How do you want children you will have to turn out?
These are questions you should be asking yourself before you marry the first time or the next time. Marriage affects more than the two of you.
