The Celebrity Net Worth Dating Guide: The Richest Bachelors and Bachelorettes

By on February 27, 2016 in ArticlesBillionaire News

You had to know this was coming eventually, people. We spend a lot of time writing about billionaires here at Celebrity Net Worth. Consequently, we also spend a lot of time wondering why we are not (yet?) billionaires (or at least millionaires). Sometimes, some of us may examine the people we've chosen to date over the years. As my grandmother always said, it is just as easy to love someone who has money as it is to love someone who doesn't, so choose the money.

In all seriousness, though, despite the fact that more than 90% of ultra high net worth people are married, there are a number of eligible, single billionaires of both sexes and a wide range of ages out there.

Of the five women, four of them are billionaires. All but one of the men are billionaires and that one is Jack Dorsey. And let's face it, Dorsey could be back in the billionaire game at any time. Two of the men are actual princes. Whether you're in your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, or 60s – there are single billionaires out there looking for love. Ladies and Gents, dust off your flirting skills and prepare to meet some of the richest bachelors and bachelorettes in the world.
