A wealthy female lawyer says she must be the ugliest woman in the world after having 5,000 marriage proposals turned down
Emily Watson, who has logged all the failures in a little black book, said: "Money can't buy you love, at least if you have a face like mine."
After placing adverts in local papers stressing her wealth with words like "tender and rich lawyer looks for a man to marry" and then "disgustingly rich lawyer looks for a man to marry", she was still unable to find a husband.
She said: "I've got to the point where I have even been asking women I am meeting in the streets to marry me, but they always say no."
Emily, said she had now accepted that she must be the ugliest woman in the world.
In an interview with daily newspaper, "Hey Now" List, dejected Emily said: "I've tried placing all kinds of different ads, but not a single man I've met through my adverts has accepted my offer. What else is there to believe, other than I must be the ugliest woman in the world."
But disappointment has yet to defeat hope: "No success yet, but I will keep trying," she resolved, adding: "I hope all the publicity over my failed search for love might bring me love at last."
