Sofia Franklyn, a 31-year-old podcaster, has gained attention for her unconventional approach to dating. In a viral TikTok video, she openly admitted that she exclusively seeks wealthy partners and even requests their bank statements on the first date before proceeding further. While some criticized her, many found her reasoning quite logical.
Sofia Franklyn, the podcaster, openly stated her preference for dating wealthy men. She elaborated on her unique approach, explaining that she routinely asks for men’s bank account information during their initial date.
“I’m serious about this. I’ve asked the last three guys I’ve dated for their bank account details on the first date,” Sofia confessed.
Her podcast guest refrained from judgment and inquired about her intentions, saying, “I don’t judge people’s actions; I look at the intention behind it. So, why do you ask for that?”
Sofia sincerely justified her approach, citing her own successful career. She asserted, “I have a job, and I’m very successful. So, I believe I have every right to inquire, ‘Hi, are we on the same financial level, or am I wasting my time?'” She also mentioned her interest in knowing their bank account details, especially if they are under a certain height.
“I’ll continue dating them even if they don’t show me initially, but I need to find out at a certain point. Many people may consider it crazy, but I don’t think it’s that outrageous.”
She shared a clip of her recent interview on TikTok with the caption, “I think I’m just being efficient.”
This clip, viewed by over a million people, sparked various reactions. Some questioned why financial status mattered when she already had significant wealth. Others raised the point that, in the eyes of a wealthy partner, she might be considered less successful. On the contrary, some supported her approach, stating that she deserved a partner on the same financial level as herself.
