The royal wedding has come and gone, leaving thousands of misty eyed women in hope of the same fairytale ending.
Trouble is, it’s just not going to happen, according to matchmaker Samantha Jayne, director of Blue Label Life.
“The perfect man does not exist. If he did, he would be mine,” said Ms Jayne.
“I cannot tell you how many women have approached me during the Royal Rush, asking me to find them Australia’s equivalent of Prince William.
A recent study from Michigan University found that women with a lower IQ are more likely to be attracted to rich men that than smarter counterparts.
The findings suggest that contrary to popular belief, there’s more to the “gold digger” phenomenon than a sense of greed. Lead researcher, Dr Christine Stanik, believes it is “only natural” for women to pursue men who provide financial stability.
“In ancient times, women evolved an attraction to men with wealth because they knew such a mate could improve the chances of their offspring’s survival,” said Ms Stanik.
“It’s all well and good to have hopes for a fairytale wedding, but it’s important to remain not only optimistic, but realistic, too,” said Ms Jayne. “You may have to kiss a few frogs before finding your prince, but when you do find him, hold on to him, no matter his income level.
“Who knows? You might just end up having the richest relationship of all.”
