When you’re single, it seems like everybody worth dating is in a serious relationship or married—but that just isn’t the case. It’s not even a matter of lowering your standards—some of the most eligible men in the world have resisted settling down for a variety of reasons, from their obscenely busy schedules to messy, high profile breakups.
In order to make everyone’s lives a little easier, we decided to scour the world’s most elite gentlemen and whittle the list down to an even 20. And don’t worry, there’s something for everyone—from college students to tech entrepreneurs to Russian oligarchs turned basketball team owners (yes, really).
We chose these guys based on a variety of factors: Career, pedigree, looks, and the size of their bank accounts. We’re not saying that’s what’s most important when looking for your soul mate, but come on, it’s important to know all of the facts.

Jack Dorsey, Co-Founder of Twitter and Founder and CEO of Square

Age: 36

Status: Never Married

Net Worth: Dorsey is worth an estimated $1.1 billion. Not too shabby for a man whose vision involved 140 characters.

This 36-year-old social media stud has been linked to British model Lily Cole, and they were seen vacationing together earlier this year. However, there have been no official statements made from either of their camps—so it's fair game.


Ben Ainslie, English Competitive Sailor

Age: 36

Status: Never Married

Net Worth: Ainslie nabs some major prize money—sometimes even $200,000 a race. Based on endorsements and his success in the recent Olympics, he's on track to earn over $7.5 million this year.

Five Olympic medals and an English accent, need we say more? This bachelor told The Telegraph that the leading lady in his life is Rita: the single-masted Finn class he has been sailing since 2003. Although, we're sure the Olympic athlete would appreciate someone in his life who shares his competitive spirit.

Eduardo Saverin, Co-Founder of Facebook and Internet Investor

Age: 31

Status: Never Married

Net Worth: He's worth $2.2 billion—and rising!

We all sympathized for Eduardo in "The Social Network" when former friend and business partner, Mark Zuckerberg, pulled some tricky moves on him with their Facebook earnings. Alas, sitting at number eight on Singapore's 40 richest people list—Forbes assures us he is hanging in there. Nowadays, Saverin lives in Singapore, drives a Bentley, and hosts parties with supermodels. A far cry from Zuckerberg's life, don't you think?

Prince Harry of Wales, Third in Line to the English Throne

Age: 28

Status: Never Married

Net Worth: He has an estimated worth of $40 million thanks to inheritance from his mother, Princess Diana.

His older brother William may have nabbed Kate Middleton, the perfect addition to the Royal family, but Harry is still looking for his princess. With a series of high profile relationships under his belt, the 28-year-old party boy (hello, we've all seen the Vegas photos) seems somewhat eager to settle down.

Jeremy Lin, Point Guard for the Houston Rockets

Age: 24

Status: Never Married

Net Worth: $11 Million, with a lucrative contract.

As a rising star in the NBA and a Harvard graduate, this tall drink of water is quite the catch. Lin became well-known as the man who led the New York Knicks to an eight game winning streak. Ladies, practice your three-point shot to win his heart.

Prince Azim, Third In Line To Succeed the Throne of Brunei

Age: 30

Status: Never Married

Net Worth: The 30-year-old is third in line to the throne of Brunei—and a $5 billion fortune.

Azim is a paparazzi favorite, and regularly steps out with his famous friends (above he's pictured with Mariah Carey). He's known for being incredibly generous with friends—and even shelled out $100,000 for Lindsay Lohan to come party with him on New Year's Eve.

Patrick Schwarzenegger, Model and Entrepreneur

Age: 19

Status: Never Married

Net Worth: His parents are worth a combined total of $400 million.

With genes from Arnold and Maria, we're not surprised Patrick Schwarzenegger is a signed model. However, this dreamy 19-year old bachelor is also a successful businessman who founded Project360—a philanthropic clothing line.

Nicolas Berggruen, Founder of Berggruen Holdings

Age: 51

Status: Never Married

Net Worth: Last month, his worth was estimated at $2 billion. 

The most interesting fact about Berggruen? At 51-years-old, he doesn't own a home. Thus, the press has dubbed him "the homeless billionaire." Don't fret, though—he only stays in the most exclusive hotels.


Andrew Lauren, Movie Producer

Age: 43

Status: Never Married

Net Worth: His dad, iconic fashion designer Ralph Lauren, is worth $7.5 billion, so chances are his pockets aren't hurting either—neither is his collection of sleek Purple Label suits. 

He may have billions in his family, but he's self-made in the film world. His film "The Squid and the Whale" was even nominated for an Oscar in 2006.

Tyler Winklevoss and Cameron Winklevoss, Internet Entrepreneurs 

Age: 31

Status: Never Married

Net Worth: The twins are worth a combined $120 million.

You may know them because of their portrayal in "The Social Network," but the Greenwich-raised twins are way more than that. In fact, both boys were on the United States Olympic rowing team in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. They now have a slew of other tech investments under their belt, and while they may not have Zuckerberg money, they're pretty damn successful. Did we mention they are 6 ft 5?

Ryan Lochte, Competitive Swimmer

Age: 28

Status: Never Married

Net Worth: Currently it's estimated at $3 million, but with tons of endorsements and new reality TV fame, expect this to skyrocket in no time.

Lochte, who became a household name thanks to his victories in the London Olympics, has a penchant for diamond grills and major jewelry. Perhaps if you have the right moves to tame this noted ladies' man, some baubles may be in your future.

Conor Kennedy, Camelot Heir

Age: 18

Status: Never Married

Net Worth: As of now, he's worth around $10 million, but that will likely increase as the trust funds keep coming in.

Kennedy first came into the public eye when his mother, Mary Kennedy Richardson, tragically killed herself at their Westchester estate. Then, a few months later, he was thrust into the tabloid culture thanks to a relationship with Taylor Swift. They have since parted ways—and he's single and ready to mingle. Okay, so he still has to finish up high school—but he's 18, and he certainly isn't bad arm candy.

Scott Eastwood, Actor

Age: 27

Status: Never Married

Net Worth: His father Clint (you know, that Clint) is worth a staggering $375 million, and is known for being generous—even giving Scott roles in some of his films including "Gran Torino."

Handsome, single, and young, Scott is quite a catch if we do say so ourselves. Plus, his step-sister is Francesca Eastwood, and maybe she'll let you borrow her Birkins—as long as she isn't burning them for artistic purposes.

Jack Nicholson, Actor and Director

Age: 76

Status: Divorced, Four Children

Net Worth: His legendary career has earned him $400 million. 

Is it possible that Jack Nicholson just gets cooler with age? The notorious 76-year-old still has women lining up, and has dated stars like Janice Dickinson and Lara Flynn Boyle. He's been partying for decades and doesn't seem to be slowing down, and Jennifer Lawrence basically admitted to having a crush on him at this year's Oscars.

Mark Sanchez, Quarterback for the New York Jets

Age: 26

Status: Never Married

Net Worth: $20 Million and counting.

Hayden Panettiere, Eva Longoria and Kate Upton are a few of the beautiful starlets who have been linked to 26-year-old New York Jets quarterback. And we can understand why—Sanchez is down-to-earth and enjoys Taco Bell and 1980s pop music. Touchdown!

HRH Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark, Royal and Investment Manager

Age: 26

Status: Never Married

Net Worth: An exact figure is tricky as he is the product of two royal families—but it's certainly high—especially considering he works for legendary hedge fund king Arpad Busson (Uma Thurman's partner).

This Georgetown grad is a history buff. If you can find a better catch who also happens to be a royal, you let us know.

Albert Prinz von Thurn und Taxis, German Royal

Age: 29

Status: Never Married

Net Worth: It is estimated that this royal is worth $1.5 billion.

He has been listed as the world's youngest billionaire many times, as his father died when he was just 8-years-old. Even so, he didn't sit around doing nothing living on his family money. He went to the University of Edinburgh where he studied economics, and he's also a competitive race car driver.

Nathaniel Philip Rothschild, Chairman of JNR Limited and Co-Chairman of Bumi plc

Age: 41

Status: Divorced

Net Worth: The financier and heir is worth $5 billion. 

These days, Nat (as he is known) resides in Switzerland and runs an investment advisory firm. As a scion of the famed Rothschild family, he's had everything handed to him—but managed to go above and beyond. It is said that he has a series of hidden trusts in Switzerland worth well into the billions, which would make the dashing 41-year-old even more well-off. Naturally, his dating habits fit this image—he's been linked to hoards of supermodels and major stars including Natalie Portman.

Dylan Brant

Age: 22

Status: Never Married

Net Worth: His stepfather Peter Brant has a net worth of $2.7 billion.

As the son of Stephanie Seymour, his stepbrothers include Harry and Peter Brant, who are decidedly more visible on the social circuit than he is. Nonetheless, the 22-year-old has a bright future ahead of him—perhaps in the art world like his stepfather, or the music world like his father Tommy Andrews.

Mikhail Prokhorov, Businessman, Politician and Owner of the Brooklyn Nets

Age: 47

Status: Never Married

Net Worth: He's worth around $13.2 billion, making him one of the richest people in the world. 

As a part owner of the Brooklyn Nets, he's a close pal of Jay-Z. When he's in Manhattan, he stays in the Four Seasons penthouse suite which runs a staggering $35,000 a night. His busy schedule prevents the Russian mogul from finding a long term girlfriend, but if you're up to the challenge of always being second to his work, look no further.
