Men with money have a sensitive "gold digger" radar. Though they may flaunt their wealth in the form of fancy cars and expensive suits, usually in hopes of attracting women, they will not want a relationship with a person who values them only for the ability to purchase a Porsche. Therefore, your approach to meeting a rich, single man must be subtle, classy and sincere.

Frequent the places of the rich. Though you may live in a middle-class neighbourhood, this does not prohibit you from frequenting the bars, restaurants, malls, libraries and grocery stores of wealthier neighbourhoods. Dress the part; if designer clothes are too expensive, browse thrift stores and used shops for quality garments for less. Additionally, dress conservatively. Intrigue him.
Make small talk at these locations. Be polite, refined and sophisticated. Do not appear overeager. Rich men are likely accustomed to women desiring them solely for their wealthy accoutrements. Compliment their choice of drink or taste in books, but abstain from compliments regarding their nice car, watch or expensive shoes.
Consider internet dating. On your profile, do not indicate your willingness to meet a wealthy man. Simply pre-screen the men based on their occupation or interests. Though many specifically target companies for millionaires, these sites start the relationship based on an uneven playing field. People associate money, in this setting, with power. Starting a relationship with wealth as the premise is not a good foundation. In fact, Lauren Frances, author of the book, "Dating, Mating & Manhandling," explains that men sometimes use money to substitute romance and intimacy. Opt for dating sites like craigslist.org or eHarmony.com.
Take up golfing and tennis. Sheknows.com explains that country club sports are ripe with wealthy, single men. Because few women golf, supply will exceed demand. Appear fully comfortable, regardless of the quality of your swing. Do not be afraid to approach a man and ask for tips on chipping and putting. If he does not offer his contact information, do not ask for it. Walk back to the driving range and let him come to you.
Attend charity events. If you can't afford the ticket price, contact the coordinator and ask if you can volunteer. Ideally, avoid any work that requires a uniform, as they create a class barrier. Do not drink too much alcohol, and abstain hitting it off with a drunken person. Like one-night stands, they may associate their actions with a sense of remorse or shame, thereby placing memories with you in the same category.
Act with sincerity and class. Wealthy men are used to women desiring them for reasons that have nothing to do with their character. Sherri Argov recommends in her book, "Why Men Love Bitches," that you act with poised nonchalance, making it clear that you are perfectly happy with yourself. Express with a bubbly personality and inner confidence that you do not rely on men for emotional or financial support. The less you mention money, the better.
