Canada has a significant number of bachelor millionaires available, according to SeekingMillionaire.com, a dating Web site for the rich.
However, to gain access to these rich single men, it doesn't come free with the click of a mouse. The portal charges members a monthly membership fees ranging from $30 to $150. Of course, anyone can claim to be a millionaire or even a billionaire online but to ensure that their claims are true, the male members are charged a premium fee.
In exchange for the higher membership dues, a badge certifying the veracity of their claim that they are indeed rich is place on their online profile to assure their potential partners of their financial standing. The Web site performs a tax verification and background check on the male members before it places the badge on their profiles.
Besides confirming they are genuine millionaires, the badge gives them more prominence in the dating portal and often yields better results in finding a match, according to the Web site's Public Relations Manager Jennifer Gwynn.
Rich single men who are not yet millionaires could also enlist, but they need to have six figures to their name to be considered on the site.
So, where are these men located?
Wealth Insight Consultancy said they are found in:
1. Toronto - 2,327 bachelor millionaires
2. Calgary - 1,210
3. Ottawa - 988
4. Montreal - 734
5. Edmonton - 621
"This ranking serves as a guide for those seeking successful singles ... Not all single millionaires want a serious relationship, but this census proves that even the wealthiest men seek stability in their love life," SeekingMillionaire.com Brandon Wade said in a statement.
There are a total of 89,503 single male millionaires in Canada, according to the Web site, who want to get married and are seeking long-term commitment.
Any takers, ladies?
However, a rival business run by Krystal Walter doubts the claims of wealth and even being single on SeekingMillionaire.com.
"Online dating is an easy way to lie. You can be whoever you want to be, especially when it comes to sites like that. Guys lie about money and height and women want money, so what are they going to do? They're going to go on that site and people are going to be naïve about it," the Edmonton Journal quoted Ms Walter who runs a professional matchmaking business in Edmonton.
Seeking relationships has become also a thriving business for TV networks with the mushrooming of Bachelors shows. Here is the Canadian version.
