It's not easy dating these days. Expectations are higher, competition is wider and with so many additional dating platforms to contend with, you could be vying for someone's attention along with dozens others. So how can you stand out from the crowd?

Cash. At least in this case...

For food lovers wanting to impress, one luxury travel agency is offering an epicurean excursion of a lifetime. Shell out $274,547 (£182,000 per couple) and you and a guest can dine at every single Michelin three-star restaurant in the world.

British luxury product website VeryFirstTo and travel company Holidaysplease announced the offer last week.

In order to make this dining dream come true, you'll need to visit 12 different countries over a 6-month period of time. (You're here to make an impression, so taking a six-month hiatus from work and life should't be a problem at all.) During this journey you'll spend a significant amount of time in Japan, New York, and Paris, according to the Telegraph, and you'll be dining at the set restaurants every other day (read: prepare for a 6-month food coma.)

If you can muster up the cash, the time and the Tums, here's what you'll get:

"Includes organisation of: travel, accommodation and restaurant reservations; and costs of flights; hotel rooms (and not just any hotels, five-star ones -- because, of course!), and meals at the Michelin restaurants." However, the total is calculated by estimating a $377.93 price per meal per person but will actually depend on what you order.

And if you're feeling like this whole package is a little too indulgent for your style, be cool knowing that "a donation of £1,500 will be made to charity The Prince's Trust, which helps change young lives, once the trip is purchased."
