You know there's something wrong with you if you're a billionaire and you still can't get a girlfriend

You know there's something wrong with you if you're a billionaire and you still can't get a girlfriend

I was thinking the EXACT same thing! Maybe, dont know him personally, just maybe, he has the personality of a rock, or stuck up!

You two need to keep up; reading never killed anyone, as far as I know.

He just split up from Ayame Goriki.

He's well capable of finding another one without your chipping in with silly observations.

The space themed gimp mask and the oversized “toy” probably scare off most prospective partners.

9 ( +9 / -0 )

The free worldwide publicity has certainly helped Mr Maezawa-very astute!

hard to eat a burger when you're used to wagyu...

0 ( +3 / -3 )

The ultimate pickup line.

5 ( +5 / -0 )

He got his 15 minutes of fame from it. He probably already has a girlfriend.

Gives off douche chills big time. Cat needs a big slice of humble/humility pie me thinks.

10 ( +11 / -1 )

yeh just a big scheme to get a kick out of and show off, seen this sort of thing before, they always pull out at the last moment

really? just greedy gold diggers ... nothing to be remorseful about...

@sensei258

I honestly don't think he has problems getting a girlfriend. I think he just really loves the attention and he's bored. He sold his company and he resigned from his post with the company. He has nothing better to do.

Disillusioned

he’s had about twenty 15-minutes of fame moments so far. This guy craves publicity, so I’m sure it won’t be his last publicity stunt

All the need for publicity seems like an addiction. One of his stunts might not go as plan. People will get tired of him making announcements then pulling out at the last minute.

I wouldn't be surprised if had some kind of breakdown if all of his 7,000,000 followers on social media were to disappear.

He sold his company and he resigned from his post with the company. He has nothing better to do.

Wasn't he forced to step because of bad business decisions that caused the company to lose money?

Self-Centered egotist. And super tacky.

12 ( +12 / -0 )

"To think that 27,722 women, with earnest intentions and courage, had used their precious time to apply makes me feel extremely remorseful," he added.

Translation: None of the gold-diggers that applied were attractive enough.

'Money can't buy me love.'

Id say he has plenty of girlfriends just like the midget on GOT...

Dude, you're a billionaire. Take them ALL to your private island

Money can't buy me love.'

Nothing but a PR stunt.

7 ( +7 / -0 )

Pathetic attention seeker. Just do someting good with our millions and stop wasting people's time !Just to take the piss , I'd sue that cretin for emotional distress !

Maezawa got the phone call from Elon Musk that he paid for only single seat.

♫ Fry me to za moon end rett me pray ammangs za stalls...

This guy is such a tool. Can’t get over his short-legged complex.

4 ( +5 / -1 )

Not sure what info was required for the applications, but he now has 27,000+ worth of personal info at his disposal. Perhaps this was his main objective? Sounds like a creep

3 ( +4 / -1 )

Can you say "publicity stunt"?

4 ( +4 / -0 )

His search for a soulmate was due to be turned into a TV show for a web-streaming service.

...aaand there we have it. Money. Always money.

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Lots of people putting down Maezawa. But he is a billionaire. How many of us can say the same?

-6 ( +2 / -8 )

His recruiting sounded too ridiculous from the start.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Ugh, the very apogee of creepy capitalism. No pun intended, natch.

0 ( +2 / -2 )

Gokai-wo-maneku

money doesn’t necessarily buy you class.

Hes becoming the Japanese male version of the Kardashians
