The dating site, which started life in Denmark in 2012, pairs wealthy men with beautiful women – once, of course, a panel has decided if they are good-looking enough.
Women submit three photos: one face shot, one body and one of their choice, and are given a rating (from one to 100) based on their perceived beauty, style and quality of photos.
Finding love is a challenging quest even in your home country.
But that was a lucky night: Since moving here, I have been to many a discoteque where women shake their booty with their girfriends for hours while men watch with pretend disinterest from the sidelines, their eyes radiating invisible beams of desire: Please, miss, ask me to dance. I know it happens; the streets are full of Danish babies.But much like other reported miracles, such as Christ walking on water or an American president delivering a speech he wrote himself, it’s something I’ve never seen with my own eyes.I get a lot of mail from readers of this site, but a lot of the mail I get is on one particular topic. And I can tell you now, most of them will not immediately reject you because you have a different skin color.Here’s one from this week, from Teddy in Ghana: I WANT TO KNOW IF DANES WOMEN WILL DATE A GHANAIAN MAN. And one from last month, from Alex: “Hi, I’d like to know if Danish girls would date a bi-racial Brazilian guy.” And one from late last year: “I’m a gay African American male who would like to date a Dane. ” Basically, a lot of the mail I get is from men, wanting to know how they can get some action in Denmark. I know of several babies of mixed heritage here in Denmark.Yet you see Danish men and women in parks in the summer, sitting alone on blankets, or in cafes in the winter surrounded by their buddies or girlfriends with their hair carefully gelled, lonely and horny but contemptous of anyone who dares to approach.
The icebreaker of course, is alcohol, and I have little doubt that if it vanished from the Earth tomorrow Danes would never reproduce.
The tax department will have your number, real fast.
Second of all, Denmark is a very non-hierarchal society, very flat structure.
When the Secret Diamond Club launched in Britain two weeks ago, its server crashed because of the volume of women logging on to upload their profiles.
The idea of being wined and dined by wealthy men who can afford a yearly membership costing up to £60,000 was clearly an attractive prospect.
Those with the lower scores pay up to £30 a year for an annual membership; anyone with higher scores pays less. ‘There are lots of wealthy men in the UK but British women aren’t attractive,’ says the site’s founder, 33-year-old Gus Terkelsen.
