To Marry the Millionaire
No man is going to look at a woman he believes is simply after his money, so I had to pretend I had my own. The first thing that had to go was my Northern accent. I needed to delete my past in order to change my future.
First, I decided to invest in elocution lessons. After six months, it was virtually impossible to tell I had been born in the North.

Secondly, I needed to know where rich people ate, and where they holidayed. I needed to educate myself. I read glossy magazines to find out about the best restaurants and the most luxurious resorts, and I got books from the library on etiquette. I remember one book said it was OK to get your compact out at the table because the Queen does that. I do that all the time now. If I was going to convince someone that I had the same life as them — and, more importantly, that I could fit into their world — I needed to know the places that they were talking about, and exactly how to behave.
Finally, I knew I had to look the part. Here, though, I had a problem. I took on as many extra shifts as I could manage, and saved every last penny.
How to Marry a Millionaire
Instead of buying from designer shops, I spent hours scouring eBay. I decided that I would focus on building up an expensive look to be worn only on dates. I bought a second-hand Mandalay dress sexy but classy , plus a few designer accessories, including a second-hand Christian Dior bag and a Louis Vuitton holdall.
I was speculating to accumulate — and I knew it would be worth it. But where to start my search for a rich man? And at first I thought it was something to do with sugar baby or sugar daddy. But when I looked into it, it turned out to specialize in serious relationship which may lead to a marriage. Suddenly, everything just seemed to slot into place. To put it simply, I knew it would be easier to reinvent myself if there was a bit of distance between my past life and what I hoped would be my future life — a life with a wealthy American.
From the moment I spoke to him, I knew he was the one for me. David peppered his emails to me with tales of flying business class and expensive champagnes. I knew he had to have serious money. This was the man I had been waiting for. What did I tell him about me? Not very much during those early conversations. So for weeks I sent these vague emails, giving him very little information about me but finding out more and more about his life. He owned his own business and took five-star holidays in the Caribbean. I was thrilled when he asked me to meet him for a date in New York.
There was just one problem: there was no way I could afford the flight, and no way I could tell him the truth about my finances. Instead I stalled, telling him that I had work commitments. It worked. Before long, he had bought me a business-class ticket and offered to pay for the hotel. It was a magical five days. This time we stayed at the Waldorf Astoria, where David had booked us separate rooms, so there was no pressure to sleep together.
We spent the next few days going to galleries and designer clothes shops and eating at the most wonderful restaurants. And on the final night, we slept together — not least because, by then, I found David irresistible.
