Man hits the streets seeking 'wealthy wife'
Meeting a companion can be hard, so one man is using extreme measures to try and make a love connection.
Some people will go to extreme lengths to find a suitable companion. Fifty-six year old Robert Darling is one of them.
For the past 12 years, the bachelor from New Jersey has been making a weekly trip to Manhattan in hopes of making a love connection, reports The Wall Street Journal. To publicize his single and ready to mingle status, the bachelor parades a sandwich board that reads: “I’m looking for a wealthy lady to be my wife,” along with his phone number and email.

Sure, everyone has their reasons for entering a relationship. Some do it for love, others for money. And although the recently unemployed Darling has never been in a serious relationship, he’s pretty clear about his intentions.
He wants a woman with a net worth of at least $750,000 who’s smart, has a sense of humor and likes listening to the English rock band Genesis.
So far, Darling’s creative advertising tactics have landed him exactly one date – with a women who wanted him to get hitched to a friend so she could get her green card.
