Beth would applaud this woman. 'Wealthy men are more romantic': Woman who claims she 'only dates millionaires' says singletons shouldn't be ashamed to say they want a rich husband Nadia Essex says she has learned all the 'tricks of the trade' for finding and attracting men with money. Speaking on ITV’s This Morning Nadia, 32, says she has been a ‘a lot’ of dates with millionaires The business woman, who lives in Chelsea, explains: ‘For me I’d just had enough of dating deadbeat guys. 'I like nice things and I’m not ashamed of that and I like going to nice dinners and I like romance. And wealthy guys are very romantic ‘I'm not the type of girl that will settle for the middle.' Nadia, who has appeared on reality show RV Rampage on the Travel Channel, says that her childhood helped made her value money over other qualities in men. ‘We grew up in Surrey and my family were quite wealthy and then we lost everything in the recession in the nineties. ‘So I grew up with money and I grew up without money, and I know which one I prefer. ‘My parents are great role models and they’ve built themselves back up again, but in the end, I want to marry a guy with money and give my kids the best.’ Now hoping to help other aspiring millionaire-daters, Nadia explains that there a range of skills needed to bag a wealthy man. ‘There are 800,000 millionaires in the country and I’m not just about the money. If I was I'd be married by now with a massive rock. I’m not just looking for the guy with money, I want the fairytale ‘You do need money, of course you do, because a millionaire is not going to go down the local pub, you have to go to nice places. ‘The good thing about things like Ascot or the races is they’re all there in one place – you can cherry pick.’ ‘I'm really trying to teach other women - who aren’t afraid to say that they want the best for their life. ‘If they're honest, everyone would want to marry a millionaire. A lot of people do settle, and I want to empower women and say you don’t have to settle. It’s ok to say you want someone who loves you, is loyal and trustworthy - and is wealthy.' Nadia has amassed a huge collection of gifts from her wealthy suitors. She claims to have been given hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of designer shoes and bags but denies that she is using men for their money. ‘Why if a guy buys me gifts am I using him? It is just the same as bring home a lovely bunch of flowers and saying “here you go, you’ve had a bad week”. Rich guys do the same, but on a bigger scale.’ 'I believe that image is everything. If you want to be someone’s wife you need to dress accordingly. 'If you want to go out and you’re looking for a one-night stand, you dress accordingly. 'There shouldn't be too much boob, too much leg; respectful and classy. 'I like my guys wealthy because I love it when a guy walks into the room and the whole room stops. And he just has that aura and charisma. Power is an aphrodisiac.’ However her single-minded attitude is not without its costs. Nadia told the Daily Star that the millionaires she dates have an array of odd sexual fetishes 'Rich guys tend to have a kink. I’ve dated a Fifty Shades-type of guy who likes to be dominant and alpha male in the bedroom. 'And I've also had the absolute opposite - a CEO of a company who wanted to be humiliated in bed. 'One guy had a foot fetish and loved my Louboutins. He wanted me to stand on his balls in them. I don’t have balls but I can’t imagine standing on them in stiletto heels would be nice. 'Another guy, it was all fine and normal, then one day he told me that he liked to wear adult nappies. That was a step too far.'
