A single mother says she has earned £10,000 by dating strangers. 37-year-old Kelly Popilek claims to have dated men – who pay for her company at the dinner table – to ensure her 10-year-old daughter Ariana can have a good life.
Kelly uses the money to pay for school supplies, clothes and household bills – and she’s hoping to inspire other single mums to do the same. Kelly, from California, US, wants to make it clear that just because she dates for cash that she’s not a ‘gold digger’ – she has her own real estate business
Kelly said: ‘I use the money from date to pay for bills, clothes, food, school supplies and everyday things for my daughter. ‘I’ve earn around $13,000 from dating the men I’ve met online as it has led to business partnerships too.
‘It has given me and Ariana a great lifestyle and I would recommend it to anyone. ‘I’m not a gold digger though, I’m only dating these men to make my life better not because I want a relationship.’
‘We don’t need anyone else’s support to ensure we can lead the best lives possible. ‘Ariana now has all the school supplies and clothes she needs and it’s all because I’m able to date strangers for extra cash. ‘I have recommended it to a few other mums and I can only hope that they use it as an opportunity to better themselves like I have.’
