‘SEXRETARY WITHOUT OPINION’ : WHAT RICH AND DIVORCED MEN WANT IN A NEW WIFE ACCORDING TO DATING GURU RICHARD KIRSHENBAUM

‘Tits on a stick, a blonde wig and tell me I’m great when I get home’: What rich, divorced men REALLY want in a new wife

By Sadie Whitelocks

A high-flying dating guru has shed light on what his rich, divorced male pals really want in a new wife.

In an article for The New York Observer Richard Kirshenbaum, 52, highlights that most associate ‘smart, opinionated’ women with hard work and instead look for a ‘sexretary from the Midwest, preferably without an opinion.’

He goes on to cite one of his newly single hedge funder friends, who jokingly said: ‘Now I just want tits on a stick, a blonde wig and someone to tell me I’m great when I get home.’

Although he had no formal training as a relationship expert Mr Kirshenbaum, an ad agency CEO and part of Manhattan’s elite, says that he has dispensed ‘loads of successful advice’ to acquaintances over the years.

While well-to-do divorced men search for someone who is not their equal, their female counterparts prowl the social scene for billionaires or oligarchs.

 They want sex, companionship and money – though Mr Kirshenbaum says a divorcee will rarely find all three in the same man and they need to be realistic.

He describes those who haven’t come to terms with this fact, as being in the ‘pre-realist’ stage.

Faced with the choice, he says single ladies will generally plump for dollar signs.

In a bid to find a plush suitor they flock to glitzy charity dinners and weekend soirees in the Hamptons.

Recalling one political fundraiser he recently attended with his wife Dana, Mr Kirshenbaum said he met a ‘well-regarded’ financier’s ex-wife who adhered to this trend.

She told him she wanted a partner her own age or younger and did not want to date a ‘geezer’.

‘Rich – the richer the better,’ she affirmed.

While hunting for husbands with eight-figure bank accounts, Mr Kirshenbaum reveals that such women fill their spare time with casual flings.

‘Notable hookups . . . include affairs with French or Italian baristas, a Roman Casanova who preys on the newly divorced and the occasional Moroccan rug salesman,’ he writes.

‘More common are the standard-issue service-industry providers: the omnipresent trainer, manny, male or female yoga instructor, Hamptons carpenter, contractor, driver, plumber, beach club attendant (for real Mrs. Robinson cred) and tennis pro.’

Eventually, the ‘smart ones’ he says, end up with the ‘best 60-year-old they can find’ and don’t care if they’re as ‘dull as a month-old razor’.

Touching on the sources of contention in rich peoples’ divorces Mr Kirshenbaum mentions Birkin bag collections and multimillion dollar apartments.

Luckily he doesn’t have to face the relationship woes that overshadow his world of obscene wealth.

Mr Kirshenbaum has been ‘happily married’ to his wife, Dana, for more than a decade. They have a son and two daughters.

In 2011 he published a no-holds-barred relationship guide for women titled Closing The Deal, which went on to be published in nine languages.
