You are WAY out of your league
Problem with pedigrees is you don't wear them on your sleeve. How's a guy to know who you are? And even if he did know, why would it attract him? I doubt 1 in 10,000 guys even knows who George Opdyke is. Not to denigrate your famous ancestor, but let's be realistic.
My pedigree goes back to mid-1600s New Amsterdam, before there even was a New York. After the English took over they went across the Hudson and founded a town originally named for my ancestor, now renamed as the present day Montclair. And his descendants founded another nearby town, Little Falls. An ancestor was a General in the Revolutionary War. Others fought in the Civil War. I have an appreciation & respect for these things.
The best way I know to attract gay guys is to flex your pecs and flash your cash. Which can earn you an easy trick and little more. That I don't doubt you can do if you want.
It's a tough obstacle course out there. NYC offers lots of men, and lots of dead ends. I'll bet you that when Anderson Cooper was single he also got turned down at times in NYC.
Gorgeous guy, all kinds of money. But I doubt he'd say "I'm a Vanderbilt". Now there's a pedigree. And even if he did, I wonder how many guys today would know what that means?
So I think, Cash, you gotta take your chances like the rest of us. And expect that some fools will pass up a treasure. And some will unwittingly stumble upon the same treasure, and win the big prize. I hope that you, and he, win that lotto.
