Well, we did arrive at a rather posh hotel, only it turned out my date owned it, along with about 200 others.
I wanted to fling a Gina mule in his face - the guy was working, for God's sake. 'Kate could you leave a tip,' he suddenly said, rummaging in his pockets, 'I've left my money in the car.' What, all £3billion, I thought, as I brought out the only fiver I had left and plonked it onto the squishy chocolate mousse. Unlike the landowner rich who are so blasÈ about money, the self-made man often comes from a poorer background.
Out of the 140 million tax returns filed in the United States every year, about 1.4 million make an adjusted gross income of over 0,000 a year.
Now imagine if there were 1.4 million undead zombies roaming the country. Most would agree that a top 1% income is rich wherever you live.
This may explain why we are so clueless at what we are doing in bed, but we act like we know. It's nice to hear nothing but your lover's breath against the backdrop of the evening or early morning.
You can be making a total mistake, but as long as you're confident, it will turn out okay.
If the guy is wealthy, chances are he works more than 80 hours a week. Most people who end up becoming rich forget where they come from.
He’s always going to be out on business trips and traveling the world for work.
They become so accustomed to a lifestyle that they forget how it is to be on the other side. How did it feel to be stranded at home because you spent your last on vodka instead of a tank of gas? Things will be great today, but one day you will be back on the streets alone and single, wishing you were never with him in the first place.
Or he will one day make a mistake that wipes out his portfolio.
So when a handsome man I met at a party invited me to dinner, I didn't hesitate.
'Pick you up at seven, gorgeous,' he said in a voice that was half East End slang, half Prince Charles plummy vowels. I wondered, - clickety-clackety in a pair of sparkly Gina mules bought specially for the occasion - Nobu or maybe a spot of dinner at Babington House.
